 Easy for us to say we've all ridden with "that guy." Not so easy to admit that sometimes... I am that guy.
  • + 12
 I am definitely sometimes the guy asking for the multi-tool... those damn things are harder to keep track of than your car keys in a house full of drunk monkeys.

 @LEWIS103: Specialized SWAT water bottle cage with multitool. Solves all problems.

 Watching this video made me think maybe I'm the asshole out on the trails.

 When I used to be super fast and fit I was "that guy" in the lineup on the DH. I mean, I wasn't that aggressive, but when you wanna go fast, you wanna go fast... Get out the way, brah!

 @NeilsElbek: I think topeak makes something similar, they did a feature during interbike!
  • + 2
 @NeilsElbek: f*ck dat, I'm not talking the $150 one, that's dumb. The $60 one. All it has is the multitool at the bottom. I didn't realize they have a $150 one, thanks for the enlightenment...

 unfortunately there are too many of these people i.e. too kool for skool, I hit rampage so I can talk down to you, why are you riding a 2 year old bike, you don't ride enve's, I've done 50 park days, yeah I'm friends with factory riders, I make sure to wear a deity shirt every where some people know I ride bikes, I'll never get married so I can ride when ever, I can't tell you where that trail is its top secret.. I know the builder,

 lol, where I live, if you go to the bike shop on Monday you will see lots of douches saying exactly these stuff and bragging about their weekend rides. I avoid Mondays at bike shop because of them.

 Chaz's twin brother latched onto me and a buddy this summer up at Mt. Washington. He says " hey, you guys mind if I ride with you today? Besides, I need someone to talk to on the chair" Oh man, talk he did. Didnt shut up for 3 seconds. This guy was on a hardtail. Kept calling our bikes "squish bikes". Yeah, thats usually the first clue.........We lasted 2 laps before I said "ok man, we're going for lunch, you keep shreddin". Managed to keep our distance from him the whole rest of the day which wasnt easy.

 Great story!

 Haha I can't love this enough. I don't know why but this line kills me "There's a hole. Oh sweet, you got a saw".
  • + 19
 If you could put a little more Wu-Tang lip on this frickin inside berm so I could really style it out
  • + 14
 That was awesome! One time we just started clearing out a new section of trail by cutting the brush away and 2 guys came riding through, "Are you done yet?" "Can we get through?", after they must have ridden past 10 workers. Oh course when we asked them to help, "No way, we are riding today". Some in every crowd.

 That car is hilarious.

 What is it? A sawed off Geo Metro? He needs a Griffin with a Soft Ride stem from the 90's to roll that wagon.

 Chaz "Roadie's" are much worse than this, with their $10000 Carbon Fiber bike, Dura-ace 9000 Di2 groupset and their carbon tubular's 404 Zipp's. You get annoyed with them 5 min's into a ride, after being preaching to, on what to eat and drink before/ during/ and after a ride, yet they are the one's who bonk half-way in a 200km ride, and your the one who has to carry them the rest of the way.

 Life's too short to waste your miles on the road.
  • + 7
 This is depressing. Seems like I ride with a couple of these characters on my weekly group ride.

BTW Anyone else surprised/amazed that there is still a Geo Metro left that's actually running?
  • + 7
 Well done. Every sport has these, but I feel like surfing has it the worst because the waves are always the best and biggest right before you arrive and after you leave.
  • + 3
 Even though this is a parody, I found myself hating this guy. Never even encountered a real world 'Chaz' but damn my fists were clenching lol Someone needs to do one of these about the UK 'BronsonDadduro' scene. Hey I'm a dad, maybe I'll do it. Gentlemen, fire up the kickstarter..

 There's a fine line between bombing a trail and being a dick. If you're blowing up a trail, be ready to pull back when you see uphill traffic.

 "While you're at it... can you put a little more Wu-Tang lip on this freakin inside berm" ....pure gold!

This video might make me more annoying to ride with, cuz I will need to one up this guy's duche baggery. ...in the form of jokes, but still

 So far for me it seems this sport has more chill people than most, but that said, I have run into Chaz at our local park. He was sitting on his bike at the top of a small jump, completely across the trail and ignoring oncoming riders. I squeezed by him after it was obvious he wasn't moving, and he took off and rode as close to my back wheel as he could. Only bad apple in dozens of rides there though...last ride there I lost a contact lens at the end of a run and instantly had a small crowd of riders looking for it for me.

 Haha, love how he pulls up to Super Mario's seating area at the end.. There certainly isn't a shortage of these guys in Bellingham. Great video, wish I could have gotten tickets for the event. Next year!

 This is what gives Enduro a bad name
  • + 12
 and before that freeride, and before that downhill, and before that mountain biking itself, and before that BMX... enduro's just the latest word for it. people are gonna use the current trends to big themselves up no matter what.

 I'm always giving my friends shit about having their suspension and tire pressure too stiff. I guess i'm an asshole.

 Front or rear forks?
  • + 1
 no youre not, I work at a hotel in park city and we see hundreds of bikes in the summer so i get a chance to see how other run their set ups...People with six inch bikes riding almost locked out. Tires with 30-40 psi....You would be amazed how many people own a full sus without owning a shock pump
