Kinda lame how bikers get hate from BMXers and Skaters. ". . .I have no problem with mountain biking - you know, like riding on mountains. But, some dual shock, tranny sucking monster of a bicycle with Primo pedals at the skatepark or anywhere else getting "hybrid" is another subject. Free-ride mountain bikes are not doing anything new. It's not progressive, you guys aren't "forging new ground," and you're not doing anything that hasn't been done on a BMX years ago. I hate to break it to you, but those big gaps were all dones -without suspension - and gotten over it in the mid to late nineties, and most of your pros are guys who couldn't hang in BMX. Freeride mountain biking is a gross, rehashed version of BMX."
