I welcome more people to my conveniently combined transportation/fitness/fun, as long as they learn some respect. Don't be a dick, don't spit. just basic stuff.

The problem is the EVERYONE SHOULD BE WELCOMING unracer crowd will shout down anyone who expects a modicum of basic manners, telling someone that a certain behavior is unacceptable, dangerous, unsanitary, or discourteous is considered "elitism".

So the bad habits perpetuate themselves.

Aside from some supply issues they've created and some minor inconveniences on trails (but admittedly gives a little confidence boost passing people), these newbie guys have kept the baiku industry afloat these last few months while china/taiwan factories have been closed and shipping went to shit. Their eventual mechanical idiocy will keep local service shops in healthy business for quite some time, or give Park Tool a boost with all the new DIY-ers.

Hoping increased demand only helps the industry long-term. More bikes sold at a higher margin means more $$ for development, production and innovation.

Glad to see some of my friends getting into it as a way to spend time together and have fun. I think it'll be like the 10sp boom in the 70s except with more mountain bikes. Just gotta wait for the supply base to build back up for those 21MY bikes... All the shops are completely empty and I wanted a new MTB this year...

All these cyclists want everyone to be riding bikes everywhere and commuting on them until there’s a traffic jam on the MUP

Not me. Fuck them. I want them to go back to REEEEing about getting "almost hit" because they stepped into a bike lane with their eyes glued to their phone.

people have been putting Whizzers on bikes since the 1920s. Its a common first gearhead project as it teaches you the importance of delicately and correctly mounting an engine.

Future used bike salesmen. Seriously the used bike market is going to be flooded once people go back to their cars and jobs.
