 I'm sure i'll get downvoted like fk here, but while I appreciate @redshift 's effort, I do feel like this could be done better. - what about the long one for fiveeeee goldennn ringsssss? And 'sram gx on a production privee' doesn't even fit as a replacement for 'partridge in a pear tree'!

So yeah, 6/10 from me.

How do you not sing 5 Poc Protectives in golden rings style? I'm thinking it's more about the way you are interpreting the words and not the way the Artist Formerly Know as @Redshift has written them.
Merry Christmas Everybody

 What I like and don't like about those shirts is that you look like a trail builder without doing sht.

 @etbikezcom: I'm not a trailbuilder and would wear this. I was looking for an exact same looking shirt to bring some variety to my outfits, but it's difficult to find an authentic looking lumberjack shirt. Then one day a UPS courier rang at my door and he was wearing exactly the shirt of my dreams. I was too stunned to ask him where he got it.

 I NEED that flannel shirt. I can't do any trailbuilding at all without it...

 I'm not laughing at lumber sexuals since my hot neighbor got herself a new boyfriend that looks like a walking commercial of beard wax... or that clumsiest of the sons in a family owned logging company, who they sent to town because they couldn't look at him anymore. They told him to pass the axe, and he said he uses Dove+ 48h. Lucky basterd to land that chick. He can't even hold a hammer properly this fkr, as if it was a master craftmens skill. I watched him fix a wooden door to their locker, it was freaking preposterous.

 @pakleni: just because observing an event, making up such thought chain, writing it down and forgetting it may take a lot of time and brain computing power for many people, doesn't mean I make a big of issue out of it. I just entertain myself in comedic sense...

 @WAKIdesigns: Welcome to Waki’s world. I love getting all these little windows into your mind. It’s one of the best features of PB. They should put you on staff dude. Your bizzarre acerbic wit never disappoints.

 @hvmatt: Then why do some of you have landing strips?
  • 6 0
 Wool flannels actually make pretty legit winter riding jersey's. They're temperature regulating, keep you warm even if they get wet, and wool has antibacterial and antimicrobial properties (so it doesn't get all stinky.

 @hvmatt: thank you for taking a bullet for the entire female gender, that is not sexist at all. How awful of me, how noble of you fighting for respect for all the humans who are psychologicaly and anatomicaly women. As if I intended to direspect her. As if I didn't kicked much more shit out of the guy. I called countless folks wankers in the past, that is a rather gender-dependent insult. Where were you, not waving the flag by then? Projecting your insecurities much? Having little understanding about males and their way of being? Don't get me micro aggressive because I don't feel like giving you a free pass just because you are a girl.

Waki is officialy a misogynist #metoo or #maybenot so #thinkwhateveryouwant and yes I'm going to #gofockmyself #soonerorlater in the #afternoon.

Do you already feel sorry for my dotter? Come on, you don't kow me, have never met me, judge the crap out of me. I don't know of any proclaimed female haters of mine. I need more biodiversity!

 Agree with @WAKIdesigns on this last one.

@hvmatt: However, if you want to insult him, don't call him as*hole. Especially not like this with the star. It's lame.
Tell him that his bike is short. Big Grin

 @WAKIdesigns: Waki, of course everybody judges you without knowing you - this is comments section. For the record I haven't noticed anything insulting in your post... at least not in this thread. But you should be happy - emotional reactions mean trolling was successful.

 Whoa....... Bunny hop shorts: "Featuring a new design fit, Alpinestars’ Bunny Hop Shorts are constructed from an advanced four-way stretch main chassis for excellent levels of comfort and optimized riding performance. The shorts have strategically positioned laser perforations for airflow and zippered pockets for safe storage and offer high levels of durability and comfort fit." So fancy... Laser perforations?! I don't think my jeans have this Razz Sounds awesome. I'm entering...

 Four way stretch, what is that? Is that in four dimensions? I can understand 2D stretch. 3D stretch would already make not so much sense anymore for a thin material. 4D, a time dimension?

"Hey dude, what's up with your shorts, I can see your ass."
"Nah, don't worry. That part is taking a peek in the future. Should be right back"
-- slap --
"See, there it is again. Excellent level of comfort and I really feel my riding performance has been optimized."

 This is mountain biking, please leave the fashion statements to Joan Rivers and crew. Why is MTB turning into the ski industry?? Too many people worried about how they (and others) look. Even when it comes to bikes... people's first comments are about its' looks. Just plain silly.

 It's amazing what left over table cloth prints from the 70s can be recycled into a shirt. No one wanted them, so transformed to lumber worker shirts, now trail builders shirts!

 That’s what riding gear should look like. I’m in. Anyone who thinks Mtb riders and roadies are the same because we both ride bikes only needs to look at the clothes.
