- What political party for Bikepark Wales?
before it became the ‘new golf’, we had a term all-the-gear-no-idea for people who bought the flash kit without doing their time in the saddle to actually get good at riding what they had, before you’d even need the marginal gains offered by chi-chi stuff. They used to stick out a mile. Now it’s mostly the other way round.Posted 4 years ago
Bigrich, I’m well aware of the term, I’ve been riding a number of years now, you know. 😉 I’m just curious as to why it’s funny that someone wants to get the best kit they can afford, to do a sport they enjoy? Why should they have to suffer the tat we did 15-20 years ago?
Doing time in the saddle? Wtf is that supposed to mean? Thou shalt have a shitheap bike until your ability (not your wallet) affords you a nice one? I know loads of talented riders who aren’t exactly Scrooge mcduck, should they be given nice bikes?Posted 4 years ago
As far as amour goes if you can afford some nice stuff why not.
I’m no trail god but have a nice force field shirt and carbon lid
Because I can’t do huge road gaps and whips should I only buy crap ill fitting stuff
On a different note why should you pay for an uplift if your not fit enough to earn the decent with some exercise on the climbPosted 4 years agonealgloverMember

You should try surfing.
You would fit right in with your attitude.
They all seem to dislike new people enjoying “their” sport too.Posted 4 years agoacehtnMember
Perhaps Mr carbonV10 was on his first run of that track ?
without the benefit of pre-walking a track before riding it even Steve Peat types will have a slow roll down to check things out.
I don’t know anyone that will hit an unknown track at race pace without knowing what’s round that blind corner or jump.
Did also catch the end the end of the C4 thing, did wonder what it was about.Posted 4 years ago
Also the BDS dates for 2014 are out, and Bike park Wales is on the list wonder if any worldcuppers will do strava 🙂TheArtistFormerlyKnownAsSTRSubscriber
Oh, give over everyone – we all like to take the pee out of Mr ATGNI. Just cos bigrich has re-iterated a time old adage and some of you have obviously gone all weekend without getting laid, no need to get all sanctimonious.
We are all having fun, as I’m sure is Armoured up Audi man – it’s just a bit of light hearted banter.
And yes, if they are mincing down a blue in full gear at walking pace, they do look stupid – but then we are MTB’ers; none of us look particularly cool!Posted 4 years agono_eyed_deerMember
And… erm, Back to Plaid Cymru…?
Yes, I did think it was a little ridiculous. I also think its a bit stupid the way they assume to speak for all the people in (an independent) Wales (as was the ‘tone’ of the broadcast at the end). They don’t speak for me.
I did think the bloke in black at the end was pinning it pretty effectively on that section though.Posted 4 years ago
