I'm looking to get into some freeride and downhill riding, nothing too extreme, but I wanted to upgrade my bike from a rigid 2 a rock shox metro. I don't know anything about the fork but someone is giving it to me and I was wondering if it would serve my purpose.

Mod edit: fixed spelling.

Congratulations on being a worthless troll. Enjoy being banned.

A couple reasons:
  1. Excessive and repeated usage of AOL'ese after being told repeatedly by moderators to cease and desist
  2. Obvious trolling : What kind of moron doesn't know that Metro (as in Metropolitan) = City? A fork named with a synonym for "City" isn't going to be a good Freeride fork. Plain common sense should tell you that
  3. The fact that the bulk of his posts have been deleted by the mod squad
The only thing you do that's annoying is that lame ass font. The color's fine but the font sucks.

I would if I could. I'm just the watch dog. Now if this happened on the other site I'm affiliated with he would have been gone in a nanosecond.

What kind of BS mod edit is that? Fix the spelling but leave in the AOL'ese?

Mod edit: Simple, I missed that one.

I'm well aware of his reply pattern. It's unfortunate he chooses to communicate in a manner that falls well below the standards of written communication common in a first grade classroom, much less BikeForums
