when they leave the "alt bike" door open...

...what other forums do you visit/lurk/post on? i mean on this group of forums, not like going to freakbike or rat rod.

just a curiousity type thing. on the bike forums, alt bikes is kind of my home base, but i tend to wander to other sections depending on what i'm interested in and/or working on at the moment. because even though i guess what i tend to fool with would be considered alt bikes, i'm usually playing with an idea from something legitimate and just trying to cobble up one for myself.

so lately i've been in utility bikes, and led from there to the folders for a minute. lurking in tandems 'cause i'm trying to finish one, and recumbents 'cause i'm trying to start one. along with a few others.

so the door guard looks kinda sleepy. where you gonna sneak off to?

I read mostly Commuting, Southeast, and Utility... sometimes here, or C&V. Since my accident I've been reading the Adaptive Cycling forum, cool stuff there.

Framebuilders (obvious), Single speed/Fixed (also an obvious choice), but due to the majority of my bikes I spend most of my time in C&V which has nothing to do with alt bikes... I'm not surprised people hit utility/recumbent too... I'm shocked no one has said the e-bike forum yet!

Long distance/randonneuring because I've been doing that lately, 50+ is self-explanatory, commuter because I do. Sometimes I'll hit "new posts" just to live on the edge.
