This is a much longer conversation than we can have here, but all of us participating in recreational mountain biking are part of the problem. Forget the truck, tally up the carbon cost of the materials, production, packaging, and transportation that goes into bringing a bike to market, and we're digging a very deep hole just to be able to play on bikes in the woods. By being here, we're all either complicit or very naïve abiut the impact mtb has on the planet. So you might as well tell us to turn the lights off up in here.  I appreciate the concern but if you look at from a wider perspective, the truck fades into the periphery. True, we could choose not to promote that kind of vehicle but I think Deniz makes good points about that, and anyway, we're not going to hide our heads in the sand.  We are, however, in the middle of several discussions about articles that take on the greater impact of mtb as a whole and I think we're all in for a bit of a shock.
