Wanna win a sick titanium hardtail from Salsa? All ya gotta do is simple:

“When you join or renew your IMBA membership now through May 31, you will be entered for a chance to win a Titanium Salsa Timberjack. By supporting IMBA and joining with thousands of other mountain bikers we all stand up for the trails we love. Special thanks to Salsa, Industry Nine, Maxxis, and SRAM.”

Head to IMBA to read more. Thanks to all these rad companies for supporting IMBA, who is already supporting us all! Also check out more information on the new Salsa’s Ti Timberjack.

    LOLZ, FAST ON THE HEELS OF THESE SHENANIGANS:
    “Why Are Some Chapters Leaving IMBA?”

      Yet people will still see things like this and proceed with blinders on supporting IMBA because they feel they also are supporting the sponsoring company(s) Salsa, IndustryNine, Maxxis, and Sram. The movement is gaining steam. Doing like you did here says volumes. Let people know the reasons to openly oppose and remove support from IMBA and the industry will hopefully start to follow when they see they are facing repercussions and open opposition to the buying of their product because they support a bad deal.

    Would be nice if they had made good on the standard Timberjacks that are now not available until next year. Q really dropped the ball on that one…the Ti version is cool but that scenario really put a sour taste in my mouth.

    • Ultra_Orange

      Dude they can’t keep anything in stock. Great way to get me to not be interested is if I can’t find it in my size to try. Then again I’ll bet they are laughing all the way to the bank.

      Man that sucks. Makes me really glad I got one in February when it was still winter in WI. They’re really not producing any more this year?

      • Nick Meulemans

        As far as I know, they are not. I know this because I had to tell two of my customers that had them on order that they were not available…I don’t typically sell bikes and that was a tough phone call (and they had been waiting since January)

    I would suggest doing a bit more research into trail building and access politics before claiming that the IMBA “is already supporting us all” John

    • I guess I’m speaking from my personal experience with IMBA… and other’s in my community.

      • boomforeal

        gotcha. its natural to universalize one’s personal experience, or that of one’s community — and generally harmless — but not everyone is a fan of imba’s approach to mtb advocacy

    IMBA sucks. Don’t support this. Not that the companies sponsoring the bike aren’t awesome with awesome people, it’s that IMBA continues to burn riders as a whole under the guise of well thought out progress. Meanwhile our access is chipped away piece by piece and IMBA only has excuses.

    I have my issues with IMBA. I’ve been on the BOD of a large trail building organization for years that has chosen not to associate with them directly for a variety of reasons. But to say they “suck” and that they “burn riders as a whole” is little overboard. They trained a generation of trail builders and have done more to nurture the sport than any other organization I can think of. I’m happy to give them my support.

      You’re perfectly entitled to your opinion as to your experiences given what you note. I am not discussing the merits you pose. I mention what the current state of things is and what people are seeing and believing. That is all. Perhaps you need to look at things from the perspective of others to see the failures of IMBA?

      When IMBA steps up to the plate to address and remedy their failures then they may again deserve support.
