I OWN 4 AM FULL SUSPENSION BIKES 2 of which C-DALE MADE IN USA

another 2 GT i can;t say they are made in USA but i can't find the made in Taiwan logo anywhere. Could have fallen off. But one of them carbon, Definitely won't be taiwan

I ride these bikes anywhere. That is what i call FREERIDING.

I am PROUD of my bikes and my riding style. I am not against 29er, rigid, single speed.
I will never touch a road bike, a commuter bike.
I prolly won't buy a DH bike. If i had the chance i'd just join Commencal or something and race DH, then they'd pay the bike.

Looking at most of the posts in the thread how many bikes you own...i totally lol.

how many road bikes have to be made so that you roadies are satisfied with ripping some highway or commuter path? Where is your darn Prius?

Why not commute with MTB?

I know road tires or slicks are fast. But they are such a wimp for MTBkers who obviously can't help but ride some street MTB around. And you know how that is, at least need some fat tire and a front fork to do street riding.

I have used kwik trax from kenda on my mtb. For the money's sake, i'd say i may throw them on sometime, but the race king do just fine, they are deadly fast anywhere. If you are not afraid of falling, take it to an skate park, it still goes fast, don't turn...
see what i mean? I don't care about the whole tire technology and theorem. I found this tire to be powerful allrounder, my local bike shops all recommend this and stock this. So what else do i have to say?

Now I have in the past have made errors in posts, and got reamed for over-pluralizing forks, but I'm struggling with this statement what does it mean?

This guy sounds like someone from around here who just got in an argument of imports vs domestics.

I DRIVE A GOD DANG FORD TRUCK & IT'S GOD DANG BETTER CUZ I DRIVE IT DANGIT! I PUT THE BIGGEST TIRES & LIFT KIT I CAN FIT ON THAT BAD BOY & IT'S NEVER EVEN SEEN NO GRAVEL! WHY WOULD I USE THINGS FOR THEIR INTENDED PURPOSES? WHY WOULD I COMMUTE WITH A COMMUTER? OFF ROAD WITH AN OFFROADER? ARE YOU FREAKIN DENSE BOY?!

Oh & by forum rules, no pictures = no bikes. Until I seem them, the only bike you own is a pink Huffy you ride to school. Nice bike, queer.

No need for explaination.

see for yourself
watch ANY mountain bike Movies

I am not going to start with this, but seriously, the mountain bike scene has recently been dominated by Freeriders. And if you tell a freerider to not slide, he will tell you to go f yourself.

Unleash the Cracken...game-on.

roadies? You do realize this is the mountain bike forum right? Probably won't hurt too many roadies' feelings in here... and btw many roadies also mountain bike and don't drive Prius but that all goes without saying...
