    Mtb slang

    yard sale n. (from skiing) a horrendous crash that leaves all your various "wares" -- water bottles, pump, tool bag, etc. -- scattered as if on display for sale.

    A lot of slang comes from bmx or winter sports. Like freeriding. Almost a direct steel from skiing.

    Nice.
    I try not to say too much, for fear of putting my foot in my mouth when it should be clipped to my pedals.

    without a doubt, my favorite is "bolt-on", the MTBer slang for breast implants...think about it...you bolt on new deraillers to make your bike better, women bolt-on new boobs to make thier boobs better

    ITS PERFECT!

    Here's two of my favorites (in honor of our beloved friend - see "the Enemy" thread):

    auger v. to involuntarily take samples of the local geology, usually with one's face, during a crash.

    bring home a Christmas tree v. to ride (or crash) through dense bushes, so leaves and branches are hanging from your bike and helmet.
