Oh brother, not this again.

I will say that the many desert rats will argue against reason #3.

Riding's riding, I like the roadie and the mtb, they are the same but different. But...
Reason #1...er I ride to the trailhead...so cars as well.
Reason #3 Never been hit by a car... been hit by plenty of trees...they can hurt, a lot.
Reason #5 Not in my neck of the woods, it's the opposite here.
Reason #10 I still wear bibs on the mtb, comfort over style for me.

I don't even get #10. This is wonderful internet journalism "mountain biking is better than road biking because bib shorts". So is that because a huge proportion of roadies use bib shorts and that is bad because bib shorts are the most comfortable shorts you will ever wear or because a huge proportion of mountain bikers wear bib shorts and they are the most comfortable shorts you will ever wear?

Judging by the cut through and short cut trails I see all over the place I would suggest that mountain bikers are crazy competitive, just as much as roadies. I have been on both varieties of bikes where I saw riders doing dumb things on bikes so that they could "win" over the rest of us. Leave that **** on the race track.

If you want to make yourself feel better about being a mountain biker or becoming a mountain biker then at least post something that is well written and not just some kneejerk reaction from someone that didn't like road riding because a huge proportion of us on here like to ride bikes, no matter the flavor.

Folks who ride in the desert don't have trees and they're doing just fine without them.

After all this time I've been outed. And to think all it took was a comment about trees and the desert to do it. Who knew?

Seems to me that this article, and many other similar lists miss one of the most important points. Being a better road rider tends to mean your a faster road rider. Being a better mountain biker could also mean that or it could mean your better at catching air, riding up and over large boulders, or manualing a set of rollers, or hitting your line through berms or climbing a nasty uphill rock garden, or ... So on.

Now granted if your riding in a pack of roadies there can be a LOT of thought and strategizing going on, but Mountain biking presents a multitude of thought provoking challenges around every corner and with every challenge comes another skill to be mastered.

At the end of the day its all about getting on a bike and going for a bike ride. Why would I disparage somebody who rides road? If that's how somebody enjoys the sport then there's nothing wrong with that.

I've seen jerks and a-holes in both disciplines. Duh!!
