    I am pretty new to ride monkey. With that being said, I was just curious why everyone seems to hate pinkbike so bad. I want to know so I can hate pinkbike too! Just kidding-really, I want to know what is so bad about pinkbike....

    pinkbike attracts a younger crowd than the monkey, and is less of a 'community'. lord knows the posts on this place ain't mature, but they tend to be about a dozen steps more so than pinkbike.

    It's where you go if you want to brag about ten foot drops to flat. :rolleyes:

    Also, Ridemonkey is better, so there! :D

    People should distinguish between Pinkbike, and Pinkbike Forums.

    Pinkbke is a great source industry news, and reviews. Also, it has a good photo section, and classifieds.

    Pink bike forums are filled with a bunch of kids posting about 17 foot hucks to flat...

    Get with NSMB, it's Pinkbike's cool cousin. P-bike is ok for news, and they do "Drop-In," but I like NSMB better.

    the main reason i dont like pinkbike is because you cant go there and ask a general question about something. instead of getting suggestions or a nice reply, you get five pages of people bitching that you didn't use the search button and they never answer your question
