 Funny, but I think it would be better if your replaced downhill with mountain biking.
  • + 163
 Not all MTB requires balls. For example: XC riding.
  • + 11
 i have seen alot of these saying the same thing. but there all sooo true
  • + 70
 but dont those dudes ricde for like miles and milea and miles at a time over rough terrain, i mean mayby it dont toaly take a whole lot of balls cause your not huckin 30 foot gaps byut i know i couldnt keep up wuith one of those dude

 I don't think he means to discredit endurance, and regardless of a rider's skill level, they still have to have the intestinal fortitude to huck something that is likely to kill them if they fuck up.

 some of the xc courses that riders face in the world cup series is insane. we had a world cup here a while ago and the xc was almost as gnar as the downhill

 LOL!!! that is lovely Wink

 To whom ever made this picture, Im sure any football player in the nfl would just dominate you. Sure biking is a good sport but why make fun of other sports you didn't try to excel in? or is that because you arn't good enough for any other sports so you sit on the computer and make fun of them?

 do you actually mountainbike "Freerideguy14" all ive seen you say on this site is sticking up for roadies and football players!
  • + 33
 Uhmm lets see, I stuck up for roadies maybe twice and football players this one time. They were for right reasons also, not just stupid reasons. Oh just for you, I mountain bike.

 I'm pretty sure that Rachel Atherton proves you dont actually need any balls at all!!!

 recklessness got alot of neg. props, but he is sooo right. xc takes endourance and some skill, but it don't take balls!! if balls were required for xc, that would mean it was dangerous. if it WERE dangerous, they would wear something other than that spandex shit!!!

 Rolleyes For the XC dissers, it may not be like hucking 30 footers, but it sure takes balls to ride just inches away from a 200 foot cliff, or the ride through a rock garden with tiny little 1.95" tires, or to go down a steep hill, with such a low fork and bars/high seat, and decide: A, apply brakes and risk over the bars, or B, no brakes, and risk losing cotroll??? Not to mention, hitting a moderate sized jump/drop, with the seat at full height!

XC takes more balls than you think!
  • + 16
 But unfortunately those balls are lost as soon as you do a drop with your seat at full height
  • + 1
 crowe it dosnt say mtb it says Downhill how did XC racing even get in this?

 @Freerideguy14 The one who made this picture (or atleast the one who posted it) is French, so im pretty sure that by football he means your "soccer"....
  • + 2
 Nope, I am German and US American by birth. But you are right, our football is "their soccer". ;-) And yes, I took that picture. Someyears ago. The guy in it is French.

 The funny thing is that its not actually downhill, thats the slopestyle course in chatel i think.
  • + 12
 who cares? I took that photo in chatel while GOING DOWN A HILL. I don't care if some kids with suspension BMXes create a new word called slopestyle. it is still downhill.

 duh, very witty remark. you're just as lame as all the other imbeciles that mix the shoah with jokes and think they are funny. get a life and get an education.
  • + 1
 funny he says all that and i never met him in my life.
  • + 1
 also funny how he is basically directing it to me when the only thing that he says that is correct is about my age. i give props when they are deserved i have a hardtail not a full suspension its a KHS not a suburban and i prefer 10 foot drops but will take a 3 footer if its availible
  • + 2
 alright sorry of my error and im not whining and if i sound like it then my bad

also my bike isnt a "sub" its actually a bit to heavy but good enough for me. yes i care about specs and before i buy a part i usually go on MTBR and look it up. thats how i bought my juicy 5. and for colors yes i do stick to a certain color scheme. thats because i dont want my bike to look like some gay pride bike with all of these colors. and im not to sure what wheel size has anything to do with it but i prefer to have 26"
