Isn't it OBVIOUS?!

NO! None of them. Why is it so hard for mountain bikers to admit the
obvious truth???

I presented the Mammoth bike trails because they were created exclusively
for mountain bikes, and are used ONLY by them.

Mine are unbiased. I just tell the truth. How much more unbiased can you
get??? There is a lot of MONEY to be gained from mountain biking, so most
of the reports are biased towards mountain biking. How would you know an
unbiased report if you saw one??? Answer that one!

The entire trail system in Mammoth was created exclusively for mountain
bikers & is not used by anyone else, because you have to PAY to use them.
Hikers can hike for free, so have no reason to go there, besides the fact
that it is extremely unpleasant and dangerous to share a trail with
mountain bikers. I know. They have physically attacked me several times,
for simply telling them that the trail I hike on is closed to bikes. I
suggest that you think long and hard about starting to tell the truth....

So you admit that mountain bikers react to the truth with ***. Yes, I
know. I have seen it happen at least 4 or 5 times.
