 ^^ Shut up and get the f*ck off Pinkbike. What a useless comment.

 because the first 2 were BMX... most people on here aren't into BMX. it's a simple numbers game. and while the last one is thoughtful, and would be a nice front page article, it isn't what the POD is about.

 not to choose sides here but there was a BMX pod like four days ago...

 who cares if there bmx, bmx is awesome

 not saying ANYTHING is wrong with bmx... saying the majority of pinkbike is mountain bike therefore, more people want mountain bike pods the person was asking why not those ones, so I answered as to what it could be.

 ya but isn't a POD usually decided because it's an epic picture and has good qualities not just because it's a MTB Picture? (not arguing just trying to have a good convo.)
  • 0 0
 Unless I'm wrong, POD is decided by how many people comment on it wanting it to be POD. SO, if the majority of people are mountain bikers, chances are they will search for mtb pictures, and vote mtb pictures as POD.
  • 0 0
 ya, fair enough

 Ok i ride bmx but i also ride mtb... i just thought they were epic pics and the last was one that rightfully desurved pod in memory of them...rip...
anyway this is pinkbike

 Sweet shot for sure, but he's already made it big. everyone in the MTB community knows his name and his tight pants. I thought that the P.O.D was to showcase up and coming riders and put everyday guys in the spotlight for once.

 Congrats on the POD man! Would really like to know how they choose them tho, coz personally I think you have many pics way better than this one, but anyway it's still sick!
  • 2 0
 Thanks Eric!!! Yeah you know how it goes. I am just glad they are giving me POD! Props to all of your photos bro, i love your work!
  • 1 1
 I am confused on the subject as well
  • 1 2
 Yeah, was the same with me. Wasn't my fav pic of the shoot (3 of my 4 I would have changed if I had a choice), but just amped on getting POD haha
Thanks man, am loving summer here!!!

 The one with the dude jumping the river is the sickest uh?
  • 1 1
 haha, yeah Wink The 1st was the only one I was really amped on the pic choice. The last one I understand why they didn't use the other one with the helmet rule & all. Just doesn't seem like it's a photographer choosing the pic, which is a bit sad. It's like me judging at a horse show... will just randomly.... aaah... that one. That's the way it seems to me at least, but anyway, at least we getting PODs Smile

 anyone else sick of "aptos" tables?
  • 6 2
 I'm sick of biking all together... let's make a pink parkour site. Any thing or trick that comes up here someone has to bitch about the spot, trick, type of riding or something... can't u just enjoy looking at riding even if you've seen the trick 100 times before. It feels nice doing it, so it should be nice to look at... or what?!? Guess some ppl just like to sit on their ass & complain... oh well
  • 5 3
 Anybody sick of dumb ass comments?

Cory i think you have some cool pics, but shut your mouth and keep dumbassness to yourself!
  • 2 2
 hahaha, sorry "bro" didn't mean to get your panties all twisted up. I just happen to be sick of this particular stunt manuever AND last time i checked I am allowed to comment about it. Now if you want me to tug you slug like all the other 13yo's on here, it'll cost ya. I make comments like this to maybe inspire change. Is dumbassness a word?

 aptos tables????
last time i looked in my tricktionary that was called an unturndown, unless you have a newwer edition...

dumbass

 we in the northwest call them that. we are a very dumb and ignorant people.... I used four periods because you used four question marks.
  • 0 0
 I'm really sorry about my dumb ass comment that was actually a dumb ass question which neither of you answered. Not trying to be miff, just wondering why when you see a nice pic of someone riding a bike (something you love doing) the only thing you can say is that you're sick of that trick. Although you do have every right to say what you feel... I was just wondering why you couldn't say something nice & if you don't like it don't comment. If I don't like a POD I shut up or at least say so in a nice way like I did in my other comment to you. Oh well... so it goes I guess. I wont comment on your pics anymore if it irritates you that much.
Peace

 corytepper and feasyrider, we can all do without your BS.

Brandon is a sick rider and that is one nice shoulder buzz/face buzz. I cant belive they picked this shot out of all the rest of the shots i have of him. I am just stoked that i got POD.

But you know, i dont think i can ever get tired of the "Aptos Table"!

 HAHAHAHA FAAAHHHHK. Oops hahaha sorry man, read ur comment all wrong (saw Cory "&" I...) haha... shit, guess it's too late here haha... just delete these man haha f*ck, feel like a tosser for that haha Razz

 jesus you two are some whiny b1tches, lighten up -ITS THE INTERNET, yeah we should only say nice things to each other and if we ever have a criticism we should just keep it it in because it will cause rectal bleeding to others. Hell what if we applied your little idea to world politics, that would work out great....ANYWAYS...dude all I said was that I am sick of that trick, just like I am sick of many things including but not limited to: girl pants, bright colors, fixies, PBR, those stupid scenester scarfs and whiny b1tches. I said nothing about the photo itself, the rider or anything. simply the trick- which I am now quite sick of. AND to answer your question...When I look at a "nice" picture of someone riding a bike (which, yes I do enjoy riding) that all I have is a negative comment about the trick-is simple-I am sick of looking at that trick, which in my opinion is gross and everyone does them and every one shoots them (yes, even me...) So by your theory, every photo of people riding EVER should illicit only a positive comment form yourself. I guess you are a better person.

 Haha, Pinkbike is not world politics my man... & you see how well the system of world politics is working? haha u want war on pinkbike because of differed opinions? Great attitude man! & I didn't say you shouldn't criticize the pic, I just said that there is a nice way of doing it. Not just sayin that ur sick of the trick. Ur sick of whiny ppl, yet ur whining abut the trick, pants, colours, scarfs...?!?! WTF Bit hypocritical or what hey?!?
Nah man, ur not reading it right man... some pics of biking may not be the best pic, but to just slam a bad pic to me is kinda pointless (any idiot can do that), unless someone asks for criticism, constructive criticism to help them improve next time & to recognize that they are doing a sport you love & are trying to improve & all you can do is put them down because that's your opinion (you have some good pics & would assume you could give a little more constructive comments about the composition etc, not only focus on what you don't like which not many ppl here can do). You could say the same thing in a different way & the guy would be stoked to try go out & get a different or better shot.... anyway...over this. If you want to be negative & put ppl down because of what they wear or what tricks they do it says a lot about you. --- "I make comments like this to maybe inspire change." ---

 My apologies to this post, I am sick and unemployed and basically had nothing better to do. The photo is pretty sick, I like the branch and the dude diggin, adds to the story...I would like to see it a little brighter, but that is me. I am a hypocritic bipolar dumbass, hahaha. keep working with the flash, you have some great results for your first time! Its pretty cool what you can do with just one.

 Thanks dude, cant wait to get my second flash and a better lens. But yeah cory no prob man, I appreciate the apologies. And you my friend need to get some more sic ass pics. And eric, that was very nicely put bro. I am glad we can all just get along, lol. Peace, i am out to go sowboarding for two days, be back thrusday.
