    So…

    What the actual fuck?
    I found your response entirely appropriate. No clarification needed.

    Do they have any reviews of riding without gloves? That was a classic.

    Im not sure. I dont hear anything he says after a few stumbles, back tracks and confusing descriptions but ive only tried 5 or 6 vids. Very disjointed speaker

    "Mag" is a relative term.
    It makes perfect sense...until you think about it.

    I suspect there's logic behind the madness, but I'm too dumb to see it.

    Was that a legit thread? Like an honest question or just trolling?

    Hah!

    Haha. I thought about posting that here, but to be fair to the the MTBR crowd he’s getting nothing but abuse. Not much debate in that thread.

    Rather than buying a decent bike, that OP keeps building a fleet of entry level hardtails, and continually posts about how changing a tire or tire pressure affects his average time on a climb with X% average grade.

    Yes, basically the MTBR version of DSM.

    That thread’s still going, BTW.

    MTBR had been falling apart for a while, but the death blow was when the idiots in charge decided to create 400 different forums. It’s mostly there for entertainment purposes these days.

    Yeah - any time a forum changes software everyone complains like crazy, but I sure basically stopped frequenting there after the latest changes.

    Still getting over that our local's reputation has gotten so internationally recognizable. Picard thread lol.

    I don't post on MTBR anymore, but I skim through it on occasion. There's a guy in New Zealand who has some sort of suspension tuning business, and posts a lot about suspension stuff. Turns out he rides his tires at 35+ psi and wears them out to the point of no grip at all.... which kind of calls into question anything he says about suspension tuning, IMHO.

    I clicked on that thread because, hey, maybe there are some widely available less expensive DHF clones that I might like - - and then it turned into viewing the 4-year old threadbare tires that guy rides on, while telling everyone how difficult his local trails are and how bad factory suspension setup is.

    It's a slow motion train wreck of a thread. And random comments from MTBR people suggesting every conceivable tire, most of which are nothing like a DHF.

    But you need significant upper body strength to ride those trails.

    I think I'd need to drop my rear shock pressure by half if I ran 35 psi in the rear and didn't want to snap a few vertebrae at each rock impact...
