Stop complaining, go to the damn weight room and ride your 45lb. bullit without the b*tchin. Or just drill holes randomly in the frame and get some 1.0" XC tires and a new 80mm fork and STFU!

It was a joke.

I figured the sarcasm in the second half of the post would give it away....

Team Jr. High.

Or Team 13, for the average age of the members.

Or you could become the official Essex Junior High School Mountain Bike club.

How's about "The Degrassi Racers!". It doesn't really have anything to do with biking, just junior high. That, and I was bumpin' down tha avenue wearing my fedora today, and a friend said I looked like Joey Jeremiah.

Alternatively, I suggest "Team Radically Awesome", in keeping with the '80s theme
That, "I'm Too ESSEXy for My Bike" or "Bike Said Fred"
