  1. I need a bike and a partner and I'm in...jits need not apply, unless you have an extra bike.

  2. what am I saying I'm a jit on a mtn bike

  3. The term jit is originally prison slang. It just means somebody younger than you. However, it is most often used to refer to young wannabe or other punky kids.
    If you leave your car there, those jits will steal your spinners.

  4. Or , in the cycling world it means someone who is either weak or a bad bike handler or a combination of both.
    For example..."Jeff Chow is a jit"...just an example.

  5. In my day it referred to a Junior In Training

  6. new term for Jeff, 'sit', senior in training.

  7. Nick D, you finally beat me by getting 10th ... I got 11th even though the results don't list me as having finished ... I'll train hard all year for next year's smackdown.
