 It's just pinkbike posting the token road bike. Recently, pinkbike and the pinkbike community have been accused of soliciting and sponsoring mountain bikes and discriminating against road bikes. So it's important to give a diversity of bikes equal attention.

 but road biking is boring lol

 when yt bike is tested, other bike manufacturers will go bankrupt, so is pb. so it's time pb did an opening with road biking. ohhhh, it's so thrilling and satisfying when the pieces of the puzzle are put together!!! hahahahaha

 I dont think the people saying that roadies are pussies have ever crashed a road bike at race pace. Or heard about the tour de france riders finishing with broken shoulders/hips etc.
  • - 59
 we are smarter ,. we wear armor..
last year a guy died hitting a rock wall, in a decent.. i could not care less.
(it even started a fight at work/lunch break with my co workers (fat f*cks) wishing me to die on a mountain.)
seeing UCI is fukking up road racing pretty bad i heard with all sorts of rules and BS..

strange how little they care for your safety.. if you werent a retarded roadie .. it would make you think...
  • - 12
 Haahaaaa nice one. Keep your feet on the pedals unless your terrified of a turn. I see alot of people lifting feet and doing the dog leg turns where you could just rip right thru it pedalling. Work on those turns.
  • + 44
 You can tell who has never ridden a road bike before... Screw that crap, it's way too scary. Getting up to 40-50mph on a road where one badly placed pebble or crack could send you to the ER or death, that's if a distracted driver doesn't kill you first, yeah, no thanks. I knew a few people who have died while road riding, or had a very close call. I can't say the same for MTBing where falling rarely means you're guaranteed to break a bone.
  • - 15
 well.. add better brakes// little wider tires.. and most injuries will be spared..

 The moment I saw this POD, i said to myself, lets click on the photo and see these victorious comments hating on road bikers and the fact that this thing actually got POD

 Riding a road bike is not scary. It is just boring, much like this picture. And yes, before I came to the age of reason, I had logged thousands of miles on a road bike...time I will never get back.

 There are a lot of insecure mountain bikers on this website. A roadie lookin like he can shred and everyone claims it was shopped. I did a little research on Popo, the rider, and found this: goo.gl/MRJrVx (same photographer too!). This doesnt prove that it was'nt shopped but it does show that the rider really is a shredder at heart. You know this guy was thinking about his downhill bike when he took this corner... probably paid the price too.
  • + 14
 Did anyone watch the third last stage of the Tour De France? Im no where close to being a roadie considering I have a 210mm fork and 2.5 in tires but those guys are nuts, riding downhill stages at high speeds on those little tire. I say f*ck that, you wouldnt catch me anywhere near there. Its a cool pic and if you cant appreciate it your just ignorant!
  • + 17
 Dudes... That is Popo, a National rider for Downhill in INDONESIA, this is probably his cross training! teaching the rodies how to corner! FOOT OUT!! DH style! Popo can shred!! probably much faster than the guys bitchin his pic! lol

 dude my front tire is 12 times bigger than his. (haha) 2.7 b!#ch

also see the angle his front tire is at if that were real(its not) than he would go strait into the brush i know its a turn but i don't think turns on paved roads are legally allowed to be that sharp therefor hes f*@ked

 Love all the pussies shit talking road biking who wouldn't even have the balls to rail a corner half this hard on the asphalt... It's so cute how you guys think it makes you tougher that you ride on dirt which is exponentially softer than asphalt, alone in nature safely removed from cars and idiot drivers. If you ask me, the only thing "pussy" about road bikes is how many mountain bikers are too chicken shit to get down on one.
  • + 4
 oh ya cause posing and making an intense face like that is so hard....
  • - 2
 Is that an "intense" face where you come from??? LMAO!

Go "pose" by leaning over onto the edge of a carbon soled shoe and tell me how well that works out for you... Hate to bring reality into your hate-fest but that "pose" isn't possible to hold unless he's actually cornering. He may be going far slower than what he's trying to convey but he's damn sure not stationary. And, setting all that aside, the particular picture being a pose or not isn't relevant to the general "road bikes are gay" "roadies are pussies" mentality that gets pushed on Pinkbike. So... I stand by my comments. I have yet to encounter one super tough awesome downhiller who says roadies are pussies who actually has the balls to hold my wheel down a mountain descent at 60+mph.

 well be aware for the neg props coming..
and Leroy .. road bikers are pussies.. all i see is neg props.. and only you alone stating a comment as a road biker.. that it isnt ..
this is a never ending discussion like friggin religion.. but please note the spandex isnt helping you.. de tour isnt helping you. de EPO scandal including one balled lance.... and your f*cking behaviour on the roads (in holland where i can speak for)
i allready run one of you off the road some time ago.... will not hesitate to do it again Whip
  • + 9
 "i allready run one of you off the road some time ago.... will not hesitate to do it again" I myself am 100% for MTB but "cyberhawk", you are a scumbag giving the MTB community a bad name with comments like that.
  • + 0
 And that's why I said what I said, because going at speed on the road is not really impressive, at all, in the slightest. I was just saying it can be done on dirt so there goes the only thing they can try to grasp on to. I'm tired of roadies and their attitudes, all the ones I have come across have just been elitist pricks that don't deserve to be on a bicycle cause they take it too serious and don't know how to have fun on one. Cars go really fast on pavement as well, cars suck and at least a pebble isn't our worst enemy. Yuppie snobs.......the lot of them, hahaa.
  • + 13
 You guys are hilarious... just because you don't ride road, it must suck. Just because you're not comfortable in spandex it must mean those who are are pussies... What the f*ck are you lot, like 12? Grow the f*ck up. I've spent years now riding both, they're equally difficult and equally enjoyable. Not one of you bitches going on about how pussy roadies are could actually do it... listen to you "oh a pebble is your worst enemy"... I don't know what you're on about but my road bike has seen plenty of gravel and pebble filled dirt roads... and at speeds that you girls wouldn't touch with your fear of pebbles. Let alone one of you pansies having the balls or the bike handling skills to launch an all out sprint shoulder to shoulder with other riders... or follow a rider through a set of corners two inches off his wheel at 30mph before launching said sprint. You don't understand it, you couldn't do it... and the fact that it involves tight clothes insults your questionable manhood and that's really all it comes down to. You find ANY real cyclist, from Gwin to the Athertons all on around, and they all train road too... but I'm sure they're just pussies and elitists right?

As for your 63mph on dirt... you're still apparently too chicken shit to do it on asphalt because you're worried about "pebbles". Man up and put away the 2.5" tires and see what you're made of without suspension, without the body armor, without the soft dirt, without bushes to land in, on a tire 1/3rd that size.

@ Cyberhawk... you're the worst kind of chicken shit there is. You want to call roadies pussies but then we have to deal with piece of shit doucehbags like you who think they own the road.... But somehow Lance & EPO are an issue while your jackass road rage isn't? You're a coward and a straight running bitch.

 and here you go Leroy.. internet warned you. > never go full retard.."
well you just did.. you think you are so f*cking awesome cause we dont ride road (assumptions are the mother of all f*ck ups you know Wink )
i did for a short time,. and it sucks..(i was young didnt know any better) the only thing making it exiting is creating danger. as you mentioned in some examples in your comment..
to make things clear .. you are the douche bags who think they own the road.. a bunch of fat f*cks and skinny twats.. who think they are riding the tour du gay in the weekends... riding 4 sometimes 6 peeps wide.. on a 1 or 2 way road.. AND on the tarmac.. cause the bike path is glued with gravel.. and thats annoying to ride on bla bla bla bitch bitch bitch.. (an actual dutch roadie quote)

the bitch i ran off the road,, was trying to pass me dangerously (to make it exiting) on a one way road., i swooped left and ran his 16lbs bike of the road with my 32lbs FR bike.. he was pretty scared of the gras and pebbles then !
if i would let him pass me he would have hit pedestrians who were enjoying a summer walk.. baby carriage and all.. coming our way..

its your road rage i act against ! so stick a sock in it. and remove your saddle next time when going for a ride..

 You gotta stop assuming shit LLBL, I have gone over 65 on a road bike with your stupid skinny tires, in 501's and no shirt cause picking cotton out of skin with tweezers ain't a good time. I think I was 14 or 15 and we have some steep roads around here. I have ridden road bikes often but they are boring as fuuuuuuuu so I end up breaking them trying to get the full experience I want out of a bike. Anyway dude, you talk a lot, you always seem so stressed out. Have a Snickers, stay calm and enjoy life. Stop taking shit so serious and maybe you'll live long enough to see them have to go to the 38th place finisher in the Tour De France before they can claim the winner that didn't dope. And "soft dirt, without bushes to land in"-this is seriously one of the stupidest things I have ever read, hahaa, what a joke........you're a joke dude.

 @Cyberhawk... you can barely type a coherent paragraph and think it's running people off the road is cool but you wanna talk about others going full retard... LMFAO. Apparently you were born full retard kid. Bring your ass on out to SoCal and I'll show you actual roadies get down instead of this families on rides you think it's ok to terrrorize.
  • + 1
 @Draggon - Not assuming anything. You're the one carrying on about your fear of pebbles... "your worst enemy" I believe you called them. So... 65mph when you were 14 huh? LMFAO... I suppose that's like doing a 60 foot "pinkbike" double then? The difference between you and me is I have actual GPS data to support my claims of speed... while you have big claims but carry on like a school girl about how dangerous pebbles are and how much cotton hurts and blah blah... Hike up your skirt, grab hold of your balls, and act like a man or just shut the f*ck up and admit you're a pussy. I'm not stressed... I'm not taking anything too seriously... I'm just calling you a pussy because your statements have shown you to be one. If you're not scared of pebbles than your logic is flawed... if you're not scared to ride road than your whole shirtless comment is pointless. I don't know if you just generally suck on a bike or if your road bike handling skills are particularly bad but for all this danger that you seem to see all around you, for those of us who actually know how to ride bikes it's not all that difficult.

As for the Tour... Not sure how that's even relevant. Were you previously unaware that professional athletes dope? Not sure how your naivety and have any bearing on the sport of cycling or road in particular but whatever... I guess when you have no facts or actual information to support your argument you tend to reach for shit like that. But I'm the joke... lol, sure we'll go with that tough guy.

...and yes, the soft dirt and bushes. If you weren't flatly stupid, you might have noticed a thing or two about the differences in the hardness of dirt vs asphalt. There is no 'soft spot' to look for. The stakes are higher on the road; the margin for error is slimmer and the penalty for failure is higher... just admit you're soft and scared of the high stakes.

 Dude you have some issues man, you twist things and just start throwing out insults at the drop of a hat, you seriously need a change in attitude. I have seen you all over PB getting into arguments with many people over anything and everything, the only common factor is you. Stop, just stop Leroy. You're a waste of space and a waste of my time so I'm done........knowing you'll get the last word in I'm sure of that, hahaa. I feel sorry for you man........

 @Cyberhawk & Draggon - You two idiots are the best kind of cowards... you sit back and think it's cool for you to call roadies bitches and pussies because they ride road but then you cry foul like a couple of schoolgirls as soon as someone calls you out in turn. Has nothing to do with America and nothing to do with the Tour... it's strictly limited to you being a couple of chumps who take issue with people who do shit that you apparently are too afraid to do... either because you're scared of pebbles or spandex or whatever your issue is but the reality is that sitting here shit talking cyclists because of the genre of riding they choose immediately makes you both bigger pussies than any amount of spandex or EPO ever could so cheers... carry on with that.

 Pinkbike is above all else a mountain biking website. Seen any news of the tour de france on the home page? Me neither.
  • + 24
 Alright so by that logic BMX/24" and trials are not meant for this website. A bikes a bike. Also if it was only a mountain bike website, why is there a whole section in the BuySell for road bikes? I'm just an average teenager who usually hates on roadies, but let's be honest. Pinkbike is a biking website which is meant for all bikers to use.

 I can't believe 4 people have favorited this photo...

 Well said, and i really have no problem with road bikers, but I would rather see someone on a mountain bike doing something gnarly and working to get a shot and get POD. Rather than a guy just hold a pose for a few seconds.

 I agree with the above, but it is quite a stretch to feature a picture of a roadie as POD given the target audience.
  • + 15
 As a roadie I find this picture ridiculous, delete it. I come to pinkbike for mtb, and cyclingnews for road, simple.
  • + 13
 @Adamlaycock, there is also a section in the buy/sell for cars, motorbikes/atvs, and even paintball and ipods. Also, when you are on the homepage, it says 'mountain bike news, videos, pictures and events'. End of rant haha

 No cleats on shoes
Foot clearly resting on ground
Odd angle for body considering the angle of the bike.

But, the clincher that shows it's a posed shot, is the tires. If a rider were to take a corner hard enough to obtain that angle, on a road bike with 23c tires, there would be a great deal of deflection (even at 120psi) and the contact patch would be completely different. Instead there is zero deflection........ That's what sealed the deal for me with regards to it being posed. Then there's the zero motion blur....

Neat photo, but let's see riding photos instead Wink

 Ok....at that lean angle, his front wheel would not be turned in that hard unless his front wheel was drifting wide(its not), or he was doing about three miles an hour. This photo is staged. defo

For all those roadies saying road riding is bigger scarier harder than DH. Have you EVER ridden a DH bike? Seriously. I ride both. You are just wrong. I hit 40+mph every single day on my road bike. On typical UK potholed bumpy ass roads. It gets a teensy bit sketchy very occasionally. The same feeling I get at least 10 times per ride on my DH bike. Every time I rattle my DH bike through a chute, or trees barely wider than my bars at 30mph. Then theres the corners,jumps,drops, roots, rocks, rapidly changing surface conditions...I could go on forever. I love my road bike to bits, but when I want to scare myself, I get the DH bike out. There really is no contest.

 Over the course of 10 years we will see approximately 3650 PODs. I think we can stand to endure a little diversity, and learn something about other disciplines and perspectives. I don't hate on PB for posting something completely different.This is a photo of an incredibly talented rider who is apparently able to keep his eyes from tearing up at high speed. I'd love to learn that trick.

 Is there a sequence, as this looks beyond fake. Besides it's not 1st April and this is a MTB website! The photographer takes some epic shots, so not sure how this one ended up POD.... Frown

 If you look closely you will also notice he does not have cleats on his shoes, and his foot is resting on the underside of the outside pedal, as it is upside down.

 ..... reading the title 'what will happen next?' .... I'm kinda hoping the photographer has the same rider doing an epic huck to flat sequence photo lined up (either on the roadie or mtb).

 The insecurity is so thick here that I can taste it. Don't worry stunt monkeys, The next POD will surely be some kid with menial bike handling skills jumping a dirtbike that someone took the engine out of.
