Default POSER: what does it mean?

sirs,

i've been biking for a short time and i've heard the term "POSER" on many, many occassions.

i have a few notions about it, but i'd like to hear from you what this term means to you. let's try to be objective and bato-bato sa langit, ang tamaan ay wag magalit...

thanks.

kapag na-type mo 'to sa google

define: poser

heto unang lalabas

poseur: a person who habitually pretends to be something he is not

so yan. kung sa cycling. typically someone who has all the gear but doesn't ride to where the gear is supposed to go or intended to. a typical example is getting a DH rig and riding only in MOA. or getting a high end bike, but wouldn't go any farther than the trailhead.

you have balls for opening a potentially flaming thread like this. any hobby will have its posers so guaranteed may matatamaan.

i think you hit it. for posers one major motivation is all about riding the wave of the "in" thing to do. everything you mentioned is just an accesory to their pretend lifestyle.

the sooner they find the next "uso" hobby to latch on and pretend the better. OR...the better outcome is they realize the $hit is real and they un-poser and become hardcore.

btw, another poser city is the hipster-fixie-lifestyle scene. you have all these hipster wannabes who suck up all the "correct" lifestyle gear - when they're not even in the right demographic to be "hipsters."

posers?

i love 'em.

the bicycling industry loves 'em.

the bicycle shops love 'em.

i think they're the ones responsible for keeping bike manufacturers alive.

not like me..... 'coz i don't spend unless components are hopelessly broken.

bikers like me are bad for the bicycling economy.

hooray for posers*!

For me an MTB poser is someone who doesn't like to get dirty, or doesn't like to go to the trails too much. He doesn't necessarily have to be strong or that skilled basta "cowboy" and he has to have the fire in his belly to travel over dirt, hills and rocks.

May poser din sa gear pero they are harder to define. Baka inggit lang kase tayo (ako guilty minsan sa bike envy) pero as long as trail rider sila kahit sobrang bling ang bike I don't think we can label them as posers.

complete ko lang "If you can't play, DISPLAY...If you can't perform JAPORMS!"

Airsofter ka ba sir? kasi sa airsoft sobrang daming POSERS


Sa biking 2 ang ibig sabihin ng POSER depende sa paggamit

Positive = mga halimaw na mahilig magpa picture... Di na nila pinapansin ang mga trying hard kasi nadaanan na nila ang mga pinagdadaanan ng mga yun... So enjoy enjoy nalang sila...

Negative = mga KSP, mega porma (full battle gear plus bling bikes) pero AM naman ang discipline "ALL MOA" or mas harkor ng konti ALL MANGGA (tulad ko hehehe)

Just an opinion though! Peace!
