    Just gonna say... @Faust29 and I stopped today to help a guy who was wrestling with a rear derailleur that was all gnarly and out of alignment. He was just starting to mountain bike ride after being an avid trail runner. We fixed things so that he could at least ride out to safety...

    But it reminded me of an idea I have had for a while now, but have been too lazy/distracted to take action on. Whenever we ride, we should consider carrying some cards with the web site address and our user names / contact info. I regularly meet riders back in the hills who are biking alone, and they often express an interest to ride with others... but the best I can do is give them a verbal description of the web site, and they have never (yet) shown up here. Far better to hand them a slip of paper and say "check it out and there are always a good crew looking to partner up for some rides"

    Great idea. I know @Mikie used to carry cards with the website info on them but I think he only rides in Canada these days. :whistling:

    I use the imtbtrails.com decal method by sticking one (where other stickers are stuck) here and there to get the word out. It's frowned upon by some but it is effective, nonetheless.

    I have my imtbtrails sticker in my office. Unfortunately I'm the only one that sees it.

    I can hand out cards but I ride alone in the dark. Maybe I can clothespin them in my spokes so they will have some use.
    Canada will be getting cold very soon so he maybe coming south soon
    Happy dark trails

    I'm thinking that whenever we stop to help someone trail-side, we can slap a sticker on their bike.

    yeah!!! @Mikie where’s our personalized cards to hand out? I heard they’re now coming w/ our Tailwind orders. Come to think of it, I have a few magnets I can handout. All my IMTB stickers are used up.

    Effective at making a mess, breaking the law, and painting our group like we don't care about anything above free advertising. Positive connection fail.

    Sore spot? But yes, as has been said before, stickers are the white guy's graffiti.

    So here's how this works. Because most stickers are placed by white guys does not mean that all white guys place stickers. See?

    Oh, and I also realize that there are probably non-whites and non-males who place stickers too. I am generalizing. Which is sort of like stereotyping. Which is now illegal, I suppose. I humbly apologize to white guys who do not place stickers.

    How did this become racial? Can't we all be brothers and sisters (and non-gender-specific) in graffiti/vandalism?

    H. sapiens is, by nature, xenophobic, acquisitive, possessive, territorial and aggressive. The 5,000 years of "civilization" cannot override 1M years of evolution in all cases.

    This is why you still have rampant sexism and racism - and pedophilia. Understand it, do your best to overcome it, but do not think you can eradicate it. We as a society make rules but cannot force obeisance. We can only punish that which breaks the rules.

    This is also why socialism will never succeed as an economic system among humans, nor will communism as a political system. If you can't understand this then Cuba or Venezuela is your future.

    I now await the howls of indignation.
