Slightly different one this time. The subject of the vote is "Mountain Biking". As in the sport itself as opposed to any particular bike.

Since this is a retro site I expect the votes to be cast on what people thought back in the day. Becasue i know how most would vote when confronted with a 40 year old dressed in a s********** jersey on a £4K ti bike with mismatched wheels.

No pics this time. I'll let you argue the case ;)

Soooo uncoool. Always tried so hard to be cool but could never make it. Too much lycra and fluro. I was flicking thorugh an old copy of MBi and it contained a glossary incase you didn't know what 'gnarly' meant or what a ''wheelie' was. The list of crimes is impressive :lol:

i guess its not that cool really. i n=mean, i think its cool but i dont think the rest of the civilised world does.

the "cool" aspects from a media pewrspective are the downhill, 4x, freeride stuff.

cool for me is an evening ride in the setting sun and a pub on the way home.

thats cool.

If we're talking BITD, I think then it was cool.

Colours were bright, ano was in, attitude was laid back.

All I wanted to do was ride my mountain bike.

As a kid, summers were long and hot, I had saved up my pocket money and paper round money and got my first set of suspension forks..........ahh yes, sooooo cool 8)

I honestly didn't think these polls could become more ridiculous, so well done John :wink:

Presumably Retrobike itself will be the subject of next months?

Definitely uncool.

Any activity that I participate in is by definition uncool.
