When people tell me I should NEVER called it Nevis, it just makes me want to call it that all the more, knowing it's winding them up. Like Switchbacks, and fire-roads, for instance.
Phrases used on here that piss you off?
"local" bearing shop, motor factors, machine shop!
as if we all have one of them!!
As for the other stuff like 'darkside' etc - they are actually jokes. That one in particular is a superficially pejorative term used as everyday terms by people who actually enjoy road biking.
really? I've never met a road cyclist who uses the term 'darkside'. But then I ride with people over 8 years old.
People who say "Really???"
I hate that. Makes me want to repeatedly own the perpetrator's face with a pair of Bombers, whilst saying "YES, REALLY YOU ****!"
Also saying pair when refering to a fork
big dummy-"my gnarl is adjusted to the max. Let us slay this trail."
Quality. I'll be using that at the start of every trail on my next ride!
