Ye that is not cool hey! I ride both on the road and the mtb. Road as it's less wear and tear on the bike and softer on the pocket but ride all the marathon and stage races I can on the mtb... This whole roadie vs mtb thing is rubbish. You should just reply and say, oh another mtb rider riding his bike on soft tar roads... In the end, we all cyclists trying to ride our bikes and enjoy the sport of cycling... Who cares what bike you on, at least you out there riding the bike! But, if you are going to ride, don't pass comments on the bike to other cyclists, especially if you only doing 5km/hour on a climb.
