    The “chasing pavements” one is quite funny.

    User created content. Shucks.

    Whoever wrote that seemed almost bitter enough to be a STWer.

    I’m only offended because I obvioulsy don’t fit in here any more – I’m not portly and I don’t have an audi.

    Seems fine but it’s a VW not an audi.

    Yes I am offended – I don’t work in IT/engineering and I don’t own an Audi! πŸ‘Ώ

    Rest of it seems spot on though – finally somewhere I belong πŸ™‚

    The trail centre reference isn’t quite right. Don’t we all hate McHappy trails and only ride natural stuff ?

    To cover up their utter lack of ability on a bike they pour scorn on any style riding which isnt utterly boring.

    Negative

    mid life crisis sufferers

    Negative

    with delusions of gradeur

    Check

    who think that riding around on an expensive push bike somehow makes up for their dull job

    Check

    in engineering

    Negative

    or IT.

    Check

    The most amusing being the ones who pretend to like something purely so they can be on first name terms with a washed up ex bike journalist come budget bike company owner or some muppet who draws pictures of sheep and waffles on in a pretentious manner.

    Check. JoB commented on a thread of mine the other day and I was star struck. But then I got star struck when I saw that Barnsley bloke from Life On Mars and Ashes To Ashes in Meadowhall on Wednesday, to the point where I’m still name-dropping it two days later, so I’m not sure if that’s particularly relevant.

    Thanks Brant, I’ve now got the, ahem, charming Adele ditty on loop in my head, I bet it’s still there tomorrow; how am I supposed to shred the gnar in a totally sick manner to that soundtrack?

    OK so it’s not totally accurate but it hurts when you know you fit right in, once met brant. bugger.

    Seems about right to me – not that I fit any of the boxes of course.

    Have the Audi. Have the belly. Have the bike that is far too good for my skills. Enjoy trail centres as much as I do the hills out the back. Having the mid life crisis.

    All seems about right to me.

    Thank you for putting it in words Oiks!

    My god an MBUK reader has learnt to write :lol:.

    Seems to miss the point though, we know what we’re like (and it is all pretty accurate), thing is we know and don’t care 8).

    I think its a funny summing up, but not one I can really agree with. I like this forum for its diversity of opinion not because we call all be summed up in a few lines.

    Not offended in the least. Found this feature much more amusing! πŸ˜€

    In fact other than the gnarly language (well this is Yorkshire!) it mainly fits. Very astute observation.

    I just can’t believe that someone could be surprised at finding something that could be deemed offensive on the urban dictionary site.

    That’s not me at all.

    I have a Jeep, work in banking (but not the exciting ‘losing tons of money’ part) live on an island that is 25sq miles and where it rains ALL THE **** TIME.

    Why on earth would I be looking to compensate for a life as exciting as that?

    In fact I don’t know why I even bother with you lot.

    PS. I do think all MTB journos are manufacturer-arse-licking whores, whose copy has as much credibility as a Fred Goodwin apology.
