Aggressive riders?

Wow lady, I have to give you snaps for lovin that stuff. I personally do not care for any kind of steep or technical downhill or boulders for that matter. I see girls like you on the trail (or perhaps it is even you, since you are in Ontario and I am in OC). I would be the girl whose in your way, I pedal along to the beat of my ipod, enjoying every bush with flowers and bird that flys overhead.

Hey, if you ever happen to pass a blonde on a blue Kona with skulls on her helmet, that's me! Stop and say hello!

I would love to give it a try, but there isn't much riding like that by us. Not a boulder in site.

I am getting into xcountry racing this year. I like riding fast and pushing myself to my limits. I'm also competitive--mostly with myself. I'm looking forward to giving it a try.

Nerdgirl...I prefer XC enduro events and shorter distance XC club races. I don't have the b*lls to do downhill

I don't do fireroad & notice quite a few of the newbies here ride on that. Ugh..that's not real mountain biking.

Real mtn biking is finding sweet singletrack with all sorts of twists n turns (that you'd expect in Western Australia).

There are some awesome trails around & love it when i "get it"

I wanna go back to Pemberton (south west western Australia) and do the BIG berms and smash em!

Am impatiently awaiting my elusive Titus Racer X frame/fork

Grrrrr....4 months of waiting...Better be worth the wait!!! Next time i'll order a Yeti, would have been here by now

and they have a better distributor that doesn't forget to order bikes.

Why is fireroad not "real" mountain biking? That's a rather uncharitable opinion there, CC.

I ride mountain for the reasons you do, but I guess my adrenaline threshold is lower because a good technical XC/trail course does it for me right now, and is about all I feel safe doing in my current state of riding alone. I'd like to try downhill riding at some point I think, but I'll never be one to get big air.

There is some "in between" and not all us XCer's are cruising down nearly paved fire-roads for the scenery

Well made flowy track with a few technical challenges thrown in taken at 15-20 mph....O so much fun!!!

You haven't seen our fire roads.
