    Why does it "suck"?

    I see guys respond in threads to questions asked about a bikes, or parts for bikes with the response. "They suck". Usually with no other infromation. Or even puncuation.

    Here's your chance to explain yourself. Why does brand "X" that other guys are using suck. Why do I say that a certains frame sucks? Or brakes? Or bottom brackets? etc. Is it the weight, the breakage? the fact that your fried says so?
    I play guitar in a country band, this is my page on the band website.

    Because they're kids, and they don't know better. You'll rarely catch Snazzy or Beerman make a statement like that.

    some brands make parts that generally suck, maybe with an exception. We The People would be an example. i wouldn't say a part sucks if i didn't have experience with it or witnessed it fail on two or more occasions. You can also tell if a product sucks based on it's design, like primo tenderizer pedals

    Brand X did not suck. Morris Pert, Phil Collins, Robin Lumley, John Goodsall, et al.
    Moroccan Roll was fantastic.

    What you do ride = good
    What you dont ride = sux

    Remember how it was when you were a kid ?
    Nothing sucked. Your first Huffy rocked !
    It was all about riding. Nothing else.
    Things sure were simpler

    Becuase thing suck if they aint up to the latest fasion statement. Like i was told evolvers were the worst breaks, however i got them and love them. after further questioning the kids of why they suck there responce was that they're ugly.i mean why else would you go to a skate park, its a fasion show. not really but thats the was people seem to think.


    If its trendy its good if its not it sucks even the the non trendy part could be better. none of it makes any sence.
