    So this is kinda retarded but oh well.....

    You might ride trials if?
    - Your bike does not have a seat

    - You hate NORBA

    - You know what UCI and BIU mean and will likely argue violently about which is better.

    - Mechanical vs. Hydraulic is a violent clash of bitter ideologies

    - You know grinding has nothing to do with dancing.

    - You expect to break your front fork once a year.

    - The words "No Way" have a sacred meaning to you.

    - You have ever drilled your rims.

    - The word maggie does not bring an image of a girl.

    - Half your day is spent watching trials videos.

    - You actually respect the French

    What are some others?

    When there's four people in the car and two that ride trials and one that says.. 'Hey look, 'things'.' And you know exactly what he's looking at.

    Where others see architecture, landscaping, or just a bunch of rocks.. you see a playground.

    • your black shin guards have turned white from sweat
    • you set aside a budget for replacement parts
    • you're really sick of people saying..where is your seat or isn't that seat too low..
    • you spend more time on observed trials than you do anywhere else.

    You watch "the passion of the christ", and all you can think about is how nice the rocks in the background look.

    you've ever used your brakes to help another rider locate your position

    you put a 8" rotor on a rigid aluminum fork

    your $1200+ bicycle tops out at 15mph

    -my dream home would sacrifice home size for rock garden.
    -You wonder why they call mean todd mean,when he is actually quite friendly.
    -You think Chris King should have his own throne and crown.
    -your tires are flat.

    - chainstay length is a primary dimension
    - your tire weighs twice as much as the rim its mounted on
    - your worst bike-related injury occured at 0 mph
    - you don't get off your (non-trials) bike to put it in bike racks.
    - it's not "freeride" - it's "hucking"
    - going up stuff seems so much cooler than going down it (wait, that's xc too...shite)

    That's great, I actually saw that movie, sooo true. Terrible movie, great rocks though.

    - You have a "thetrialsinshop" sticker on your computer box.
    - When you hear certain songs you can visualize the trials videos that go along with them.

    - You brake with only one finger....
    - You see a huge rock and see it as something other than just a huge rock....

    - Little kids passing you by on a tricycle is a norm
    - People often ask you "Is your tire flat?"
    - Sight of rocks, walls and logs get you more excited then porn
    - You watch more trials video then porn
    - You don't remember the last time you watched porn
    - People swear you're going to die because you ride
    - You think "dab!" when you step out of the car
    - You can change your tire tubes with your eyes closed
    - You never get busted riding near a cop but the skater few feet away does

    Haha I often have terible long nightmares about always falling to the left when pulling up the front.

    Yea I think the main point is if you spend more time on observedtrials.net than any other site.
