Mountain Biking Posted on April 27, 2023 by Anonymous I just got one of these. Are my gains about to go bye bye?
No, but if you're not careful, you will get yourself seriously hurt. Wear protection amd enjoy probably the most fun form of biking ever.
I just started a couple months ago going out about twice a week (on top of my normal workout routine), and Ive been dropping weight like crazy. Which is a bad thing for me since Im already scrawny as shit. Legs are getting thicker though. Just make sure you eat enough to make up for the extra cardio and you should be good.
Also listen to this Anon, helmet and gloves are essential, and get some padded shorts or underwear too so your taint doesnt get torn to shreds
>get some padded shorts or underwear too so your taint doesnt get torn to shreds
Listen to this. I did not and regret it.
look at the big padded seat I use
20 bucks at walmart
>t. Got a concussion and scraped the shit out of my arm last week after I sent a sick jump a little too hard
Former sponsored bmx rider here, but dabbled in mountain biking, cx and now just do road bike for cardio. I have broken collar, nose, elbow, hand 4x, wrist 2x, ankle, and a knee. Also knocked myself out 5x only once was really serious and broke the collar bone at the same time, woke up 2 hours later not knowing where I was. It's a young man's game and even though they can repair you to some extent not even the best doctors can get you to 100% again. CTE is also real as fuck.
dam u must be shit at biking lmoa
>every bone in his body broken
typical BIKEchud who blocks traffic and blows through intersections while shrieking SHARE THE ROAD every time a car honks the horn to prevent a deadly accident.
dont see how condoms will help
Depends how big you are. Either way, no. Mountain biking can be quite suited to people wanting muscular frames due to the amount of explosive energy required for uphill sprints. As the other anon said though, you can seriously fuck yourself up stacking it.
Based Pilgs enjoyer
Today is gonna be epic!
Nah dude it's rad. Haven't gotten a chance to take it my new one I got last month on an MB trail yet but it's been a blast just riding it through local normie paved park paths zipping around at like 20+ mph.
Makes you feel like a kid again.
It's a blast. What bike did you get?
I got this thing, the specialized status 140. I dirtbike too so i'm not really worried about being hurt seems way safer than that
I love my electric mountain bike.
I can do what used to be a 2 day hiking trip in one afternoon
Except you don't actually "do" the hiking trip, do you? You fart about on top of your gay little bike that takes all the effort and accomplishment out of travelling. You are a hubristic small-souled moderner.
I hike all the time. Not all trails allow bikes or are even possible to be biked due to terrain.
I just spent a week at Valley of Fire state park hiking every trail in the park and did many off trail scrambles.
What have you done lately and why do you care that I sometimes want to a take what would be a grueling 20 mile, 2-day hike and turn it into a more leisurely afternoon ebike ride?
Its the journey not the destination
And I had a great journey on my ebike.
Cant wait to do it again next week.
Are you absolutely filled with rage now gay?
no, i am filled with pity.
You win this argument if you're not fat.
why does everyone say ebikers are fat?
I've never seen a fatty on an ebike.
That's just bullshit spouted by the BIKEchudS who larp as lance armstrong on their way to the organic market to buy kale.
I have seen some really old people on them tho who probably arent able to use a regular bike.
Also why are you cheating by taking a regular mountain bike on a trail?
You should be hiking because its the journey not the destination.
And did you drive to the trail head to go on your faggy bike ride?
Again you cheating.
You cheat just like a roidchud.
That makes you a BIKEchud. And you wear pink spandex like a chud too.
Justify taking the easy option however you want, all anyone sees is your lazy fat ass going up the hill powered by bosch.
20 miles takes 2 days to walk but is rideable? You must be a fat sweaty american.
I can do a 20 mile hike in a day if I wanted to but why? I can also trail run it in a day I guess.
Why arent you trail running instead of regular biking since the only thing that matters to you is exerting maximum physical effort?
Instead of mountain biking, you should be running full speed to the mountain bike trail and then run that whole trail on foot too. Or are you too fat to do this?
Why does it bother you that some people who are on a trip only have limited time to go places and want to take a leisurely ebike ride up a canyon instead instead of an all out balls to the wall "epic ride, man" at full exertion?
Maybe I'm also tired from the last 3 days of hiking and just want to relax and look at the scenery.
You're just another little pink spandex BIKEchud who pedals around town blocking traffic and pretending you're in the Tour de France.
Come on fatty, lets see who's thinner you or pic rel
>all anyone sees is your lazy fat ass going up the hill powered by bosch.
Normal people arent like that tho only BIKEchudS.
People always ask if its an ebike and when I stop to show them they all say the same thing "I gotta get one of those!"
Literally the only argument you have is "you're fat", which is not an argument. And I'm not even fat.
You're literally mentally ill (just like chuds) if you think the only reason to ride a bike is to pedal as hard and fast as possible or else you're "cheating".
>And I'm not even fat.
So may lies
why are you even the internet and not pedaling around full speed right now on your fag bike?
The only thing that matters to you is maximum physical effort 100% of the time or you are cheating so why are sitting on your ass now?
I bet you're fat.
Which fag bike would that be? Unlike your poor fat ass I've got a few of each, and they didn't come from walmart either..
Anyways you're pretty boring, so I might go for a ride. Try and catch up when your shit has finished charging.
>my bike costs more than yours that means I'm better than you
the mental state of bike chuds
Do you realize that bicycles are TOYS. You are a grown man who makes playing with toys his whole identity.
Come to think of it, most of these BIKEchudS I see pedaling around larping as lance armstrong are all a bit on the flabby side. I guess they're not pedaling hard enough.
How is the maintenance on these? I usually ride a normal MTB but it would be nice to just chill.
really not much.
The only really pain in the ass is changing the back tire if you get a flat because the motor is the rear hub and you have to disconnect all the cables.
Wear out break pads alot quicker because you're going fast and the bike is heavy
You got a mountain bike and a car? So lucky. I would swap mountain biking for gym any day.
lmao you little babies in my thread debating about e bikes vs hiking. I rode 50miles in the mountains yesterday on my dirtbike, burned 2000 calories and still made it home for dinner. If you want to experience nature dirtbiking is the only way it is like doing 10 hikes in a day and it's actually fun instead of just looking at trees for 3 hours. The only problem is its really expensive with the gas and maintenance costs me like $100 every time I ride.
B-B-B-BUT Y-YOU'RE FAT
I literally cant go IST, by day is too fucking hot, by night it's full of criminals.
