    Are you talking about those kids that posted all those threads in dh. (zmtber and SB DH RIDER). I know them. I can't stand them. They seem to be more interested in having a bike with high end parts like chris king hubs than progressing their riding or even be enthusiastic about riding.

    Yes those are two of the kids, but I think your right with them asking all the questions about an IH 7point3.

    LOL I thought someone might have had a question about Santa Barbara, guess it's more of a complaint :)

    I agree.......these newbies asking so many pinkbike worthy questions AND praising Cortina cycles as like gods end to frame builders gets annoying. It's like the opposite of Brian HCM with his "should have bought Hope brakes", now it's like "shoulda bought a Cortina". I know it's a joke on Brian's half but I don't think it's such a joke comming from these kids.

    The DH board is filled with all these stupid posts about what pedals, what frame, what fork, best fork for...., best pedals for......, best BB, best cranks, it's like jesus christ use the search function!

    I'm ranting......it's cool some groms are on here and have questions and such, I just wish they'd not ask and flood the fourms with so many that have been answered before.

    Its not the fact that the questions are bad, but one of the kids was asking is Chris King hubs were good enough AFTER he bought them. And another one of them had a 3 page about hubs and a fork, and after the solved the hub problem, someone would give information about a fork, and he would KEEP ASKING! It's annoying!

    My Iron horse 7.3 thread isn't bad. Its a dh forum, and I am just trying to get some help with a bike before I buy buy it. I wanted to make sure the parts I am putting on it are compatible and right for the bike. Its one thread, not 15 threads that are full of s**t.

    Somebody post pics of these eDummies. That way when they come into my shop after junior high lets out for the day, I can point and laugh at their braces and lack of bike knowledge.

    I sent all mine to New Orleans. Damn.

    On a sliding scale, Mack and The Montashu have now both become entirely tolerable. Truly frightening.

    I saw this thread title and I was thinking "Ohh, I'm going to ride in S.B." Not e-bitching about the grommet infestation. Just take comfort that school is starting very soon ;)

    Uhhhh... what can they really know about their parts if they don't ride them?

    "Well, I can tell you all about this fork. Length, oil level, how to assemble and disassemble it, but I have no idea how it feels on the trail!"

    Yeah, that's the guy I am going to for info. :rolleyes:

    If you stop making stupid threads I will leave you alone. I still think this forum would be a whole lot nicer without you and your buddy though...

    Thank god for school starting back up, maybe these newbies will have some homework to do or something more creative then ask how many pins are on a pedal.

    Do they make schools that go into the night hours? I think there's finally a need for 24hr long school.....
