It’s really sad to see you getting down voted for stating facts. If you don’t believe what he said do some research and learn to think critically. It’s a tall order these days but it can be done if you take a few steps back and look at things subjectively and quit...more

It is NOT a human rights movement and it is totally politically based!

I could get behind a BLM movement if that was indeed what it was really about! Instead it's supporters (not all I grant you) often are hurting the communities and people they are claiming to...more

It is a movement with a complete political agenda!

And fine! It's great you choose to support it. However I use mountain biking as an escape from life. And I disagree that this is the place for it.

Just saying leave it All out! All of it!

Maybe I will. You have to remember that topics like these polarize the overall community.

And about 50% of the nation disagree with how the movement is being handled. (Possibly more)

Keep all of it out... And Vital will be much better off

Great now vital Mtb is shoving the BLM movement down my throat. Can't we leave political movements out of this and just ride? This is getting rediculous!

I’m a bit confused by your response. I insinuated I was going to find a Yeti (the creature).

Soon the word “Yeti” will fall from favor. Just wait til I find him.

Dumb

Funny @yahmon a web link to a site that looks to be run by a 'privileged' upper class women who's main goal appears to be shaming all things 'white'. That said, several native Americans in my friend group and not a single one find the use in this particular case offensive. Up tight...more

Thanks. It's getting insane over there. Vital seems for the most part a more level headed groups/site. That said, here I am posting large responses. I stand by my thoughts, but should probably not tarnish Vital's chill vibe. Shred on man!

bman, I've read many of your posts, mostly on PB. I agree %100 with your opinions. I just canceled my account ( over there ) because of the one way street between moderators and the majority of commentors and anti American sentiment. Respect my beliefs, but I don't respect yours was...more

You mentioned in your first response that the word "Tribe" at the center of this article hurts others. I would appreciate if you could provide me some sort of evidence that this word has injured someone so that my attempt to understand your viewpoint may be successful.

Maybe he thought the term was fun? Maybe part of the tribe? Point made someone voices an opposite opinion and someone outright says they are wrong and privileged. Social PC wave in action.

Wow....truly sad and caving into PC pressure. Nothing about using 'Tribe' is insulting or demeaning. It's a group of people with common bond, in this case Yeti bike culture. Textbook definition = "a social division in a traditional society consisting of families or communities...more

Wow. Yes, this will get downvoted but I find freedom to use this language more important than popularity. Counter culture is no longer "counter". Its the culture now.

Who exactly was offended? Care to cite any specific sources? Maybe blacks should stop using the N word, I find it very offensive.

I see your point, but 'Tribe' has been in used in Europe for centuries as well as other parts of the world. From all I see it originated in Rome /Mediterranean area. This particular word isn't anyone's to 'own'. Yeti is a private company and is free to change as they see fit, but...more

I'm offended that someone is offended by something that doesn't offend me, and I'm not a ROBOT who's easily offended.
