Why on Earth are you riding your "dh rig" on the road. Can't cut it on the trails? Or was that just the coolest thing that Walmart had to offer?
1st, it's POSER, not poseur....roadie-with-tights

2nd, my ride ain't no walmart piece, it's the real deal. and for your information, i am in the ownership of a merlin roadie, but I find it does not amnuse me.....it ain't FUN! isn't that what its supposed to be about? i quit roadie riding cause the attitude that some of the other riders had out on the road was just lame....i mean, come on...WTF?
p.s.: don't use words you can't spell, it discredits your little anecdotes.......
WTFZZZZZZAP

"i quit roadie riding cause the attitude that some of the other riders had out on the road was just lame" So you stopped doing an activity because of what other people think. Do you have a spine or did it turn to dust with all the pounding from your DH rig. p.s.: Improve your grammer, it discredits your little anecdotes.......

Webster defines POSER as (1) a puzzling question (2) a person who poses.

Webster defines POSEUR as "an affected person".

Webster defines AFFECTED as (1) pretending to some trait which is not natural (2) artificially assumed to impress others.

I'd say Lightboy was correct.

Excuse me, but "I am in the ownership of a merlin"??? Do you mean "I own a Merlin"?
Check the dictionary...You're wrong!!!

1st, It IS poseur, NOT poser. Look it up. 2nd, Why don't you capitalize I, do you think that little of yourself?

You guys are right. i admit that it was pretty stupid of me to correct the spelling of "poseur" when it was obvious that i have never even opened a dictionary. Hell, aint it obvious i'm uneducated, ignorant and stupid. Why else would I spend my days taunting people i suppossedly have not respect for? Yeah, i admit i'm a poseur. Why else would I buy a Merlin without having first figured out i didn't like road riding?
