When did the term "deadtail" start getting used?


Been Around the Block
So I've heard the term "hardtail" for ages, in fact wihtout the term hard tail we probably wouoldn't have bikes called softails. Anyway, a couple days ago I saw someone here refer to a bike as a deadtail. I had never heard of that before and now in te past couple of days I've seen it numerous times here.

Is that really a thing or did someone here just coin a new phrase???

Yep, I copied tune-a-fish on that one. I wouldn't look to deep into it, some kinda of new England/Tennessee hybrid slang from the deep recesses of his mind I would guess lol

And, we're trend setters round here. Lol
Some call it cold tail. Our family does a lot of bird hunting and it's known to be an issue through breeding of bird dogs. We had a lab that would have that issue. The base of her tail swelled when retrieving. It lasted a few days and made a great bird dog no bird dog anymore.
