Yeah, I thought the same but figured at least they were getting some exercise.

I thought bikes were made to be ridden?

Yep - that's definitely rideable. In fact it looks like it would be a blast to ride up that ',;~}

It's set up nicely and easy to surf around.

That aside, you may try and pedal your bike up a hill once in a while, but then again, with all of
that Darth Vader gear I can see why you may think it's a hassle. I'm sure there are some Irish
riders who can ride uphill out there somewhere.

We ride up hill but we use our road bikes and our xc bikes for that. This is a purely dh site so
less of the u're loosers cause you can't ride up hill attitude from everyone. We choose not to its
not cause we can't its cause we don't see any fun in it.

Those 50 pound bikes don't help.

Can't is right...those DH runs really keep you in shape for 9 mile, 5000' climbs.

drink Dew, have a smoke, a shuttle with the CD turned up real load and a 2 minute DH run. Now
that's fun.

Oooh that was a bit harsh. I think what he's trying to say is that they enjoy riding uphill too, but
choose not too when they are all geared up for a proper DH day. It might suurprise you to know that
people in the UK don't really get all this Dewd stuff, we're not fed the marketing images that you
lot over the pond seem to go on about. Mainly we just like riding bikes, riding up mountains and
down, and some days I might feel like just going out with a few mates and hitting the DH run. You
could pedal back uphill but then when you would talk **** about how your mates bike was a pile 'o
**** and he was going so slow you would have passed him but you were already half asleep...

Nice one steve exactly what i was getting at. What they don't know is that most of us from the site
there talking about have at least a 10 mile road spin on our dh bikes that is mainly uphill before
we even get to the bottom of the trails. Its a dh site we like riding dh so i can't see what
everyones problems is. I never said we where an xc club and went on xc spins and then you'd have a
right to say you loosers for not doing that climb. Some peoples attitudes to dh just suck. We all
ride our bikes for the same reason cause its fun. I don't see why people can't just get along
because of that. As far as the team goes we all have road bikes and go on road spins twice a week
where we do plenty of uphills in at least a 40 mile loop. Those of us who can afford to have an xc
bike have them and use them and have fun doing so. So why all the negativity cause of a pic of the
lads standing round having a chat about how the day or there bikes where going or giving abuse to
the **** head who was dying with a hangover for the day.

Chill already Al - you shouldn't be caring at all what they are saying as long as you're happy. ****
'em. I'm sure some of it was tongue in cheek anyhow.

Nicely done Alastair. Nice to see one of your team mates riding a Giant AC too.

Nevermind the narrowmindedness from the fool in Colorado, and good luck to you and your team.

WOW! I guess I'll have to retract my sentiments and bow to the oh so worthy DH bike climbers.

What "DH" has morphed into is ridiculous. You may as well rip the engine out of a Honda CR250 and
just coast down on that.

Because it's ridiculous and amateurish.

So, you worship Satan as well, big deal. More proof of the lack of soul "the lads" have.
