I was too lenient, this rock garden isn't moderate, it's EASY. No one
should be walking their bike on this.

Obviosly you're getting people on BSO's there....I know plenty of
Canucks who can handle a heck of a lot worse. Let's try not to insult
other countries in your petty little attack on Ride-A-Lot, eh!

Are you saying Canadians can't ride? That's a little personal lol! I can
go anywhere and find people that can't ride, Canada and the US. Wonder if
you'd walk any of the trails we ride here in Kelowna? Nothing scary here...

Hey man, you saw the video, many of those Canadians were getting off
their bikes for terrain that was easy. Petty little attack on
Ride-A-Lot? Are you one of Virginia Newbons friends, are you spoofing?
How can you say such a thing, when he has not done anything that
requires a mountain-bike? You say you've done more difficult stuff than
what's in the video, yet you're protecting a guy who can't even do what
was shown in the videos? C'mon man, be serious, Ride-A-Lot is
Chicken-A-Lot.

Point taken, but did you see how many got off their bikes, and walked
down a part that was easy and not threatening? C'mon man, that was
pretty lucid lameness.

Just saying there's lame riders everywhere. I was kidding about nothing
scary here. Some trails you either ride or pull you reserve chute. Walking
isn't an option lol! BTW, you don't have to ride through those rock
gardens. There's always the "huck" option. Much smoother except for the
last bump.

All I'm saying is "Give it a break"....flame wars don't do anybody any
good and you're roasting pretty hard. Sure, Ride-A-Lot roasted you a
couple times, who cares! That's who he is...too bad you're petty enough
to see it as a gauntlet and start a flame war over it.

Personally, I don't care if your video shows 100 canadians getting off
their bikes and walking it....I can find 100 americans, brits or
whatever and find them terrain that'd get the same reaction...My point
is don't say "Canadians!! Can't handle rock gardens!!" because you're
insulting a whole country and I know a hell of a lot of canadians up
here who would think nothing of those rock gardens...

Besides, I saw the video and I saw a lot of guys on hard tails walking
it...but I also noted that you didn't say "Hardtailers!!! Can't handle
rock gardens!!"

end of momentary rant...
