Another great start to the day. Its sunny but almost 40 degrees colder than yesterday. But still going to hit somewhere in the 60's so its all good.
Over an hour in the HP this morn.
Lets talk about the comments on this blog. Seems I have some people who religiously read this blog that do not like me. That's OK.
Mean guy has chimed in a few times. I now moderate my comments due to that. However, I have no problem posting a comment if you disagree with me. I do not post comments that are just a personal attack with no merit.
Mean guy calls me out on some stuff. And sometimes I need calling out. I don't mind if he complains about my whining and would have no problem posting it if there is no swearing.Here is an example of a attack with no merit. This came this morning on yesterdays post. From some guy with the name Anonymous: "The only thing I hate more then carbon wheels is hearing a roadie with no skills cry about screwing them up on some great trail!! .
This could coming from a guy (or gal) who is just out for some fun but I bet its from someone who does not have a clue as to who I am. If you are going to blast me for something do it for real stuff. Like mean guy. So let me break this down.
- Nobody "hates" carbon wheels. Hate is a strong word. Unless you immediate family perished in a carbon wheel factory explosion I bet you actually like carbon wheels. If you hate plastic wheels, why would you care if I screwed them up?
- Me a roadie? Dude, I have way more time on a MTB that a road bike. I am currently the president of our local MTB club and have directed many a MTB race. I do 5 or 6 MTB races myself. I have not done a road race since 2007. Your way off.
- No skills? See next bullet.
- I screwed up my carbon wheels? Nope. They are as true as an arrow and going strong. In fact I have been blasting those rocks for years on carbon and have never had to put a spoke wrench to any of them. Not once. And being a 250 pound rider. That's not by accident. Im picking the best lines and ride my bike like a rider 100 pounds lighter.(just not on the climbs). Im not the best rider my any means. Im just sayin' I have a lot of time in the woods.
And I'll stand by my comment that there are way too many rocks out in Greenbush. That's my opinion. Feel free to disagree. Just dont call me a roadie when doing it. You lose all cred.
Feel free to dis me, but if you do please put some thought into it and make it valid.
I usually don't make a big deal of stuff like this but I need something different to write about now and then. Plus its kinda fun.
Im taking mean guys advise and getting out for 2 hours around noon.
