If you can’t stand the heat, it would be best if you didn’t post your opinion in public. It’s cowardly to post an opinion piece and not allow others to voice their opinion. Especially when you describe yourself as “wildly opinionated.” I compare it to a drive-by shooting. Poke someone in the eye with a stick and run away.
In my recent update, I referenced an article, brought to my attention by a reader named Jake. Riding with the fat bike liberation front posted by Phil Tomlinson. Jake suggested we should all read the article.
The post contains numerous inaccuracies, distortions and falsehoods which my readers obviously started pointing out to the author in his comment section.
It’s easy to dismiss others by calling their comments hateful. I call it a disagreement that should be open to discussion. Through all the fat bike controversy on here, I never deleted one comment, and there have been dozens. Many of the comments have offered insight and remedies to the conflict. Every comment is a reflection upon the commenter, and readers can decide if it’s credible.
As always, I have no issue with fat bikers unless they are damaging the trail or creating a dangerous situation. I’ve been proactive in creating situations where fat bikers and skiers can safely share trails and the new grooming configuration on Goat Creek is a good example of that.
