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

...and uses the word "bitch" in the URL. Oh wait, its okay because its a woman that runs it? I guess? Man, I really hope I don't have to take a wokeness test soon because I most certainly will fail the what is okay and not okay section.

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

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

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!

Definition: "a social division in a traditional society consisting of families or communities linked by social, economic, religious, or blood ties, with a common culture and dialect, typically having a recognized leader." Seems pretty legit. Endless European cultures have used it as...more

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

Hello Yahmon,

I'm not "clearly" speaking to you. I'm replying to the myriad of comments such as yours. You can find them on facebook, Twitter, Instagram (actually, scratch that, Yeti disabled comments on the post) and PinkBike.

First I'll push back on the idea the word tribe is...more

Skeen what you are really calling for is the end of a society. I used the best source for the definition. The one the most people use. The one that is accepted in real academia and makes no reference to color of your skin. If you want to throw out the dictionary, great, but you are...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.

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

That line of thinking sounds rather dangerous.

What is it you are saying I am unable to notice? What "priveleged" group have you determined I am to be categorized under?

I'd just like to remind everyone bikes are still cool, yeti is still a great company, and being critical of something doesn't mean we "hate" each other.

Sparring intellectually is okay. We used to do this all the time. I'd like to bring it back.

Just a friendly reminder despite...more
