    Yes dropper post, I get a lot of similar comments from people when they see my videos, but in real life its not that bad.

    I've been slacking, I think I still need to write up this report and post my media. This is from Mueller Park last week, probably the best Fall Colors ride I've had this season.

    I tried an ebike for a bit tonight. WOW! Actually, very interesting experience. You can join the cool kids and laugh about them but honestly you're missing out on a cool ride.

    Sure there's a time and place for them, they aren't for every trail. But honestly, every fear and excuse to hate them is completely unfounded and false.

    Did you Strava all your new KOM's? That is honestly my biggest bitch about ebikes.

    Ok, so, tell me what happened over on the MTBEU facebook page. Looks like I missed all the drama.
    Are we there yet?

    ha ha, no. I don't Strava. I thought I would start a while ago but I just never got into it. I just ride and take pictures.

    It is a good point though, the KOMs possibly getting skewed by ebikes. I think somehow they'll figure out a way to detect an ebike and will either categorize it as such, or put it in some kind of "practice mode" or something, just so bikers could truly filter out ebike results in the Strava app.

    I think if ebike manufacturers did something for this, maybe a bluetooth tool on the bike so if it links up on Strava, it's immediately disqualified from recording a KOM. Or then again, they could open up a new category specifically for ebikes in Strava.

    These bikes are here to stay, and if the industry embraces them, it'll be better for riders and non ebike riders, alike.

    ha ha ha, I'll have to get a little write up going with some nice conversation screenshots. But basically I posted this same picture there, and the group was having a fun, healthy discussion, joking around on both sides, and then I get the private message from Landon Boogaard, the admin, telling me to stop trolling or I'd get booted out. At that point I started to see how the whole attitude there was pretty pathetic, a bunch of bikers trying to gain respect from others by mocking other beginner bikers, what they are wearing, things like that.

    So I made a few last comments, just curious if I had been banned yet, then I just left the group and Landon blocked me from his personal account too. Ha ha, it's these kinds of dramatic nuggets that make it all worth it.

    In short, if we mock others for wearing cargo shorts while they ride, or their lack of a dropper post, or in any way a shortcoming of dressing like the "real bikers", it shows our own insecurities.

    Some folks need to decide if they really do want to welcome others to this sport, or if we just want to hold it as an envious status, out of reach for newcomers. You could say I'm #Triggered by the arrogance of those who feel they are truly special, and a gift to the industry.

    In short, the admin is a little power tripping guy who may be over-evaluating his status in society for running a facebook group, and it's hilarious.

    And credit goes to Ben here for lending it to Shawn, who lent it to me for a few minutes to try out. Thanks! I'm hooked.

    Jeez. Yeah, I don't read everything on MTBEU and if I do go there I skip through everything pretty quickly. Way to much snark, name calling, entitlement and 'my opinion is the only one that matters' attitude, along with people writing stuff that they'd never dare say to someone's face. I could care less what people ride or wear. I never rubber-neck to see what bike the other guy is on or what bling he has installed. I just don't care. I do my research and buy/ride what I think will work for me then enjoy the gear, workout and experience. Just like utahmountainbiking dot com was once the goto resource for all things Utah mtn. biking, MTBEU will also one day be pretty irrelevant from being replaced with the next mass social media thing.

    Post your Biking photos

    Drama over there for sure and a whole bunch of mountain bike elitists. Iíve seen it many times. A post just gets deleted for no reason except an ego at the helm. If the owner doesnít agree with your line of thinking, he just pulls the trigger.

    I was pissed when I saw two of Beechís post deleted, then he sent me a few of the messages from the owner. Man, that guy has some issues. I noticed he blocked me from his personal account too. Iíve never met the guy and was not friends on FB. Not sure whatís up with the drama. He blocked me from the MTBEU page too after I had already left. Sorry, bro...too late! Lol
