    I think Vandeman is a shill for the mountain bike industry. Anyone who reads his rants will find
    them irrational to borderline insane. These views cannot possibly be representative of any
    intelligent environmental organization, so should be completely discounted. Instead, beginners want
    to see what the fuss is all about and try out mountain biking for themselves. It turns out to be a
    great way for families to enjoy nature and get some exercise together, without burning gasoline.
    Vandeman is just providing advertising for mountain bikes and it works. Ride on.

    . .Honestly, I could care less if this guy sticks a gun in his mouth an pulls .the trigger or if
    someone else does it for him. These little groups of .turds are ruining our country and taking away
    our freedoms and protesting .our attempts to free a people that have been treated like shit by their
    .government while the UN sat around with their thumbs up their asses. The .next time one of these
    guys clibs a tree to prevent it from being cut down, .cut it down anyway. Next time they protest by
    putting their arms together .through metal tubes, cut their arms off. Next time they lay down in the
    .street to protest something... anything, run them over! They'll get the .hint eventually.

    Your poster has one point: population pressure is the largest single factor in all economic,

    Deal w/ the problem rather than its symptoms & you just might get somewhere.

    Treating symptoms w/out focusing on the ailment, as any doctor - or even shrik - will tell you is
    fruitless.

    Truth? You're redefining commonly used terms to suit your own argument & you blather about some puny

    Ergo: to own a mountain bike is to own an SUV? If one does not own an SUV, then mayhap, one is
    prevented from owning a mountain bike?

    Where do these nutso fixations of yours come from?

    Since using (a vehicle) to carry the bike to the trailhead, then the biker, no matter what other
    conditions obtain, they get no exercize or, in term of physics, perform no work. By this extension
    of your aargument, the second law of thermodynamics is suspended but, it seems, only for mountain
    bikers. This is reminiscent of selling/trading indulgences 1,000 years ago.

    I own a mountain bike ($2,000) and ride it to school (and I am not a chemistry professor, rather a
    CS prof!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!). I neither own an SUV nor any other vehicle capable of transporting my
    mountain bike. I use a mountain bike (Rocky Mountain) to go on a gravel road that goes to my
    University. Unlike Mike, I can provide proof of the above statements upon request.

    Pete Fagerlin is the ultimate coward. He uses a picture of a recent widow (photographed by the Marin
    Independent Journal) defending her dead husband's honor to justify mountain bikers' destruction of
    nature. It is not surprising that Fagerlin finds the grief of his enemies amusing. Does 'Hitler'
    ring a bell? I pity any children or pets under his authority. Terri Alvillar

    If you want to prevent plants being ripped up by the roots, then I suggest you abandon
    vegetarianism immediately and eat the herbivores instead. Some herbivores are delicious, especially
    with A1 steak sauce.

    I didn't realise that population pressure posed a theological problem. I must have missed that one
    in my religious instruction.

    I agree. He should have used a picture of a horse's ass. Far more appropriate.
