 Ok harmless question here - do you youngin’s actually listen to vintage rock/metal, etc. . .or is it some kind of ironic thing? Don’t get me wrong, I’m stoked the ‘good stuff’ gets used in these edits but I can’t help wondering about it a bit.
This is the stuff I spent hours a day as a kid learning to play on guitar!

 It’s the hype

 @nicky-d: Good enough reason as any.

 Metallica is universally liked, it doesnt matter the age
  • 6 2
 @Narro2: Yah but many think they only went back to Black album or maybe Justice and are clueless about stuff going back to 1983. I’m impressed with the youth I tell ya! (old guy raspy voice)

 this and stuff like it is pretty much all I listen to hahaha

 @jeremiahwas: does it matter? I started listening to metallica back in 2000 cuz i bought the MI2 soundtrack cause i wanted to hear limp biskit and there i heard the I dissapear song from metalica and it was pretty catchy, aftwr that i listned to a couple of albums and songs, enter sandman for example, and thats it. My millenial younger brother told me about a song called call of ktulu, so i started exploring ride the lightning, and i am almost 40, and i still consider myself a metalica fan. Age doesnt matter

 I mean some of us just have better taste. Sorry but cardi b and all that is well garbage? Personally (21 years old) my dad raised me on 80s hair metal and now iron maiden metallica and all the "heavier" mainstream 80s bands are staples on every playlist.

 @jeremiahwas: the youth is indeed good these days. It’s the students of social sciences and dinks that drive me nuts... It’s as if by average the post millenials were really ok and the last batch of millenials born in the 90s had some deficit and this developed all this SJW mess, cats instead of kids, whacky diets and training, general pretentiousness and fun police.

 @Narro2: It only matters insomuch that I was curious. Like I said - “harmless question...” and all.

 MY 18yr old son is well into it, he's also in a rock/metal band, more than likely I influenced him when he was a lot younger with all the rock music I listened to,

I took him to see steel panther about a week ago, it was definitely worth it, very entertaining live

 Good music is timeless. I only listen to Metallica pre black album though.

 When I was a kid we rode through boiling lava on bikes with square wheels 1,000 miles just to get to the neighbor's so we could listen to metal on the wireless.

 @danashane: Luxury! When I was young we had no lava and we still built an island in South Pacific and rode all days there on BMXes and some weirdo named Lock would come and comment on our short knobs, and we were getting away from him, and then we learned he invented Highroller and that was the moment when we thought it all got weird

 I love classic metal, even a bit of the modern stuff too. It's a whole lot better than whatever passes for "music" now.

 These trails are not in Santa Cruz, they are likely in San Jose or some where else I’m valley. I’d skip ridding Santa Cruz the only thing akin to moutain biking is the brand. Check out riding in Tahoe or SoCal. Don’t bother with Santa Cruz you will only find boring fire roads, red ants and cougars.

 Plus, all the loam washed away from the Santa Cruz trails years ago. All that's left is sand and surf wax.

 Crazy warm temps in NorCal. Took a regular trip to AZ in Feb, and the temps were about the same back here at home. Not the rocks and sand tho. May tie things for the driest Feb on record since mid-1850's

 Yes but there has been zero rain the entire month of February and we're headed for another drought. I'd rather have some puddles.

 As someone who lives in the area, I'm really worried as to what this "nice weather" in feburary will mean come july.

 @Cman05: Those are winter sets, I use to ride black XXRs 527 in summer but will change to black Fifteen52 Turbomacs since I fitted the STI front brakes, the calipers were in contact without spacers...
  • 2 0
 @qreative-bicycle: ahhhh gotcha. Turbomacs are sick and now you've got me thinkin about throwing STI brakes on mine haha. Seems like a worthy upgrade.
