Not in the slightest. Read the thread. First, the guy that I offered the c-note to didn't even post a video. It was moose who posted a video. Secondly, the whole debate started over how "effortless" N8Star claimed a roof mounted rack is when I said that a hitch rack is much easier. The video that moose posted proves my point, like it or not.

Um...yeah

And where's HIS video? You know, the one I've been waiting for all this time?

I did, however, offer a wager to you. But you punked out and didn't respond. Time is up.

Re: Pics of Overland with roof bike rack

I would call that effortless as well, but of course, we have a sore loser. My shocked face:

Re: Pics of Overland with roof bike rack

Okay, lets recap:

I posted this message to N8Star:

Now lets notice this isn't a bet. So there are no "winners" or "losers". It was simply an offer to give N8Star a hundred bucks for posting the video of himself effortlessly mounting his bike to his roof rack.

Did he do it? Nope. Game over.

Oh, and BTW, I wouldn't call moose's video effortless at all. Mounting my mountain bike on my hitch rack takes no more effort then lifting the bike a couple of feet off the ground and placing it on the rack. THAT is much more effortless than these silly roof racks, which was the point from the very beginning. Like I said, game over.

I'm hardly ever wrong on judgement calls like these. MSCA punked out like I said he would. Big mouth no Balls to admit when he's wrong.

Effortless to moose may not be effortless to me, but like I said in my other post the effort is subjective to the individual person. It appears no problem for Moose so it was pretty much effortless.

Now myself at only 5'11" with two back surgeries and a heart condition it's a different story. For moose and N8STAR at over 6' and good health it's no problem.

I can't make them subjective to my limitations when they say something is effortless since they don't have my limitations. MSCA you can't do so either, the world can't conform to your abilities or decisions for all. The sooner you learn that in life the better off you'll be.

Quit trying to play a lawyers game of words and definitions for all to abide by. Put up or STFU. Nobody likes a bad looser or a smart a**.
