I was leaving the local XC trail the other day and saw this dude roll up on a Fuel EX with his buddies who were riding borrowed bikes. Mr. Fuel looked like he was trying to impress. Anyway...the Fuel dude slapped on some crazy FR shin guards like he was goin a huckin.
I was over at the "other" forum looking in the Jamis section and there was this dude wearing a full face, RockGardn carbon knuck gloves, arm guards, shin guards...yet he was riding a Jamis XLT.
My gosh people are hucking featherweights these days. Makes me wanna go out and buy a Stumpy HT and throw on some body armor, hehe.
