For the most part I am sure they are gapers with backpacks.

Yeah I used to carry some granola bars and beef jerky in my cargo pockets, if I can't carry it in my pockets I don't need it on the hill!

I understand Donutz' issue of taking PT to the hill, but otherwise I don't see the need to have a backpack.

The only time I judge someone wearing a backpack is when it's a dude who thinks we'd all enjoy his shitty music blasting out of it.

I like to wear one. I like to carry my water, extra food, lock, and anything else I can think of in there. It's not necessary but it makes things easier for me.

It doesn't seem super prevalent, yet (fingers crossed), but I see/hear one at least once a weekend at Brighton. Damn you bluetooth/skullcandy/ipod/whatever these yokels are using.

A helmet isn't necessary either, but I wear one because it serves a purpose for me.

Same goes for a backpack. Of course it isn't necessary, but I feel there is a reasonable convenience/use that I get out of it.

Ha. You can't bring the Helmet thing into this. That doesn't make sense.

As mentioned here, safety equipment is different.

I just can't understand why people ride with all that unnecessary shit.

If you do, fine. I just don't get it. That's all
