A brand of bicycle intended for off-road use on dirt or gravel trails. There is no limit to how much you can spend on them. Some of the best ones are amazingly beautiful works of high-performance technology that are also tougher than nails.more...
Most mountain bikes, though, are bought for fairly cheap, sometimes under $100, at department stores under brands such as Mongoose, Schwinn, or Magna. These "mountain bikes" are covered with fancy graphics, lots of gears, and suspension, but actually work very poorly:
1) The components are all bottom-of-the line, even if they have good names such as Shimano. They are heavy, poorly machined, and wear out or break quickly. The gears will usually grind and skip no matter how well you adjust them. Rims are often steel, which quickly rusts and bends out of round, is very heavy, and is never seen on decent wheels.
2) They are no fun to ride. Most of them weight at least 31-35 pounds, and the full-suspension models weigh around 45! Try riding up a hill on one of these. Most people just ride them around the streets, and the knobby tires soak up so much energy you can actually hear it. Full suspension will completely absorb any power you put out. It feels like riding through mud.
Mountain bikes are extremely popular, though, accounting for over 90% of all bikes on the average college campus. They are easier to ride than road bikes, but will prevent you from ever enjoying bike riding. If they are used for off-road use, they simply bec...
A vehicle that would be driven by an asshole. Particularly any large SUV, driven for the sole purpose of displaying wealth and/or compensating for a tiny, tiny penis. Also includes lifted 4x4 vehicles that never leave the city.
Asshole (the driver) + Mobile (from automobile) = Assholemobile
Person 1: Check out my new Escalade. I'm putting in a 6 inch lift tomorrow.
Person 2: What an assholemobile. Are you even taking it off road?
Person 1: No, but it lets everyone know that I'm better than them.
Person 2: You're an asshole.
When someone steals something from you.

(If you have been swooped more than once in any way possible in less than 24 hours, then you have been Swoopanopalized!)
Dad, You will never believe what happened to me at the airport... ...some homeless guy bumped into me and swooped my wallet without me even knowing! Now I'll be sleeping on the streets unless you wire me some money.
WHAT THE HECK! That fool just cut me off merging onto the freeway! He almost made me swerve off the road! That turd.
Dang it! That chick totally just swooped me for that parking spot I was about to pull into.
participating in a road race without officially registering for it.
Rich ran the local 5k road race, but he came across the finish line with no bib or chip, pissing off the race directors and officials because he was banditing. That is, he never officially registered and/or paid for participation in the road race. As such, even though Rich crossed the tape before any one else and won it, his performance was not recorded in the results.
|26.||Cream of Crankshaft|
A milkshake made of vanilla and rocky road ice cream. The chocolate represents oil, the white air. It is often eaten at Toledo Mudhens games, most often by Ed Crankshaft.
Ed: There's a pitcher of Cream of Crankshaft in the fridge if you want one.
Nate: Well, maybe, but I've never had one. What is it?
Ed: It's this milkshake I make. Its vanilla and rocky road ice cream.
Nate: Would they sell it at bus stops?
Ed: They sure would. I sell them in the summer off my truck. It's awesome!
Frisco Tractor relates to the American version of the Chelsea Tractor. A 4x4 vehicle which will never see use off road or reacts like a car to offroad situations (such as mud, ice or snow)...
LMAO, look @ those Frisco Tractors doing 5MPH on dry pavement... I think they are scared of a little snow...
Poor RangeRover, it is now a Frisco Tractor... They've cut its bollocks off...
Also knows as a "Freeway Friend" (United States, Canada, Australia, South Africa) is a term used to describe a motorist directly in front/behind you who is on a similarly long journey on the same motorway/freeway, especially at night and when driving alone.
Though you have never and are never likely to meet the person driving, you form a bond with them and can take comfort in the fact that you're not the only one driving hundreds of miles.
Becoming more common now with the invent of Adaptive Cruise Control.
A somewhat sad feeling came over me when my Motorway Mate pulled off at the junction. I then felt like I was the only one on the M6 that night.
Though I had been following my Freeway Friend for a while, he began slowing his pace so I put the foot down and overtook.
I was following my Motorway Mate using my new Adaptive Cruise Control when he pulled off at the services, so had to resort back to normal Cruise Control.
