    How serious can you take a mad roadie? :rolleyes:
    Pshhhh...
    When I started racing mountain bikes all I ever heard was what dicks roadie racers could be and had their own special pits, whereas pro mountain bikers had their pits with the amateurs so everybody could just hang out.
    :eek: I really don’t care what roadies think. :p

    You must have an inferiority complex. :whistling:
    BTW Kent was an accomplished desert racer and actually a pretty good mountain biker.

    The MTB vs. Roadie thing reminds me so much of snowboarders vs. skiers. In some ways it's so silly, but in some ways so warranted.

    This is why I don’t like to be called a roadie..but the truth is I’m digging road riding and it’s making me a better mtn biker. I’m not good, but I have fun and have met a few good down to earth peeps.
    I’ve come across some serious asshat roadies who’s take themselves way too seriously(really, you’re wearing Lycra :eek:) and they have no time for amateurs. On the flip side mtn bikers are cool 98% of the time, skill level seems to have no bearing on whether you’re part of the mtb community or not.

    I don’t know how in the world you came to THAT conclusion...o_O I think I’m pretty confident.
    Kent can be as accomplished as can be! :thumbsup: Good on him!
    Just don’t have a dick roadie attitude! :sneaky:.
    Every time we head up Highway 2 to do Strawberry, or Chilao we have to deal with asshat roadies riding 3 wide on that twisty road that has no shoulder.

    Makes me want to text and drive and go.... WHOOPS! My bad! :coffee:

    Luckily, there is a stiff breeze that is strong enough to keep the flies mostly under control.
