    Cliff notes version: a whole bunch of people on mtbr have a whole bunch of sand someplace they'd rather it wasn't. It's pretty damn funny.

    If you had ever looked through the postings in the Beginners section or the Bike/Frame discussion, you would have noticed the presence of shills. I suppose that it just got worse and worse.

    Those who complain about ads on RM should understand that they have it pretty good here...

    MTBR has been filled to overflowing with insipidness. "What color hubs/frame/headset etc should I get?" "If you don't ride a Nicolai or Knolly you are hack wannabe." "Can I join the super cool hipster 29er club with my new off the shelf big boys bike?" Ad nauseam. Blech.

    That whole IBEX mess is well a mess. MTBR lost any credibility that it did have IMO.

    So, just because I was bored at work, I tried to pick up on the story, by clicking on the threads......

    Myeh.....all I have to say....Myeh.

    Boring, little girls ranting and raving, he said she said.

    It would have been better spent time if I was watching basketball score tickers.

    Out of my mind, back in a moment.
    I got banned from MTBR because of it. Fascist douchebags.
