I don't care how much someone else does or does not ride.
I am quite nippy down hill and on the flat but am rubbish at climbing. I am trying to train and get better at it but hey! If I walk up so what, at least I am out. That's my 'thing'.
If someone else's 'thing' is building showroom spec concours bikes and keeping them warm and dry, never to dirty their Porcs then I'm pleased for them.
If someone else's 'thing' is riding a 9" travel engineless motorcycle over man made terrain and then getting a lift to the top good for them, at least etc. etc. etc.
Let them poke fun if they want (maybe that was not the intent). Imagine the price of XT short cage mechs if we all were the same.
