Two pedals raking,
And a partridge in a pear tree.

Six XC riders braking,

And a partridge in a pear tree.


On the seventh day of Christmas,

Three fractured wrists,
Two pedals raking,
And a partridge in a pear tree.

Five droppers not a-rising,
Four sidewalls tearing,
Three fractured wrists,
Two pedals raking,
And a partridge in a pear tree.

 Shoot... I woke up and realized to number 5 should have been “5 folded chain rings”. That would have sounded more like the real song’s “5 golden rings”.

 Ah, there is a song... That explains years of confusion while reading the comment sections of the advent calenders.

 @Mattin: its a famous old xmas song. I have no idea what half of it means though. It relates to advent. My knowledge of that is a calendar with chocolate in.

 The two pedals raking brought back bad memories of Odyssey Triple Trap pedals. Dug into your shins way better than any shoes, ever!

 @krashDH85: I wouldn’t say free of charge. Those things were at least $190. Lol

 @dscottycole: Right, yes...wasn't talking about the pricetag, was talking about the pedals not charging to destroy my shins. Mine as well buy Welgo's, blah blah.

 Really cool. Reminded me of Villain’s 12 Days of Shredmas: youtu.be/S3tQK8QqmD0

On the 12th day of Shredmas
The trail gods gave to me:
12 Rollers Rolling
'leven Tables Topping
10 Walls a Ridding
Nine Gnarly Skinnes
Eight Drops a Dropping
Seven Berms a Shredding
Six Gaps a Gapping
Five Points of Steeze
Four Riding Buds
Three Death Grips
Two Techy Climbs
And a “Send it” I landed with ease!

 I was also thinking it was similar to Villain’s 12 days of Shredmas. Nice find that video was. Plus those guys have some really cool components and apparel and lots of cool colors.

 Quick, patent that suspension design in 11th comic before it's too late!
  • 3 0
 Already too late to patent the design, but you could have just registered posted it to your self & kept it sealed!
But if any one copy it we can send them all hate mail until they stop!

 The partridge literally made me spit out my coffee. Also, what a waste of a tasty bush-chicken.

 I've been singing my kids the regular 12 Days of Christmas at night before they go to bed. I'm going to try this modified version tonight and see how it goes.

 Lol. The Xc breakers was funny.

 I LOL'd at that one too. I once saw a guy head down our local jump trail (7-27 on Moose Mountain) on an XC Hard Tail in full lycra and his 3 foot high seat post. Instantly took me back!
