Mountain Biking - Any interest in a new forum: Bike Forums>Bike Forums>Downhill
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.

I've been PMing Joe asking for his permission. Would anyone else besides me be interested in a Downhill forum?
I think they tried to start a hucking forum section. Problem is once you start to divide it up so much it gets confusing, and there are less posts/threads in each section, and therefore people lose interest easily.

I dunno. I just think its another major style of mountain biking. So I thought it should have its own forum.

I don't really think this forum has been overwhelmed with downhill posts to the point where it's become unmanageable. Until then, my vote is to maintain the status quo.

Really this subforum doesn't get enough posts to warrant splitting it. I don't see how it would help. I can leave for a week and come bac and there are usually not enough posts to hit page 2...
No need to fragment things more than they are.

I can understand your reasoning behind the forum but atm, its fine.
Really if we were to split this forum, it would make more sense to split it to-
Mechanics (oh wait there is already a bicycle mechanics sub forum)

Guys! I'm not talking about splitting the Mountain Bike forum. It's a whole other forum thats seprate from the MTB forum.
08-07-04, 09:42 PM
like a mountainbikeforums.net?
08-07-04, 10:01 PM
NO!!! LOL did anyone read the subject line?
IF I WERE TO SPLIT THIS FORUM IT WOULD BE:
Bike Forums> Bike Forums> Mountain Biking> Downhill
WHAT I SAID WAS:
Bike Forums> Bike Forums> Downhill
TOTALLY SEPRATE FROM THE MOUNTAIN BIKING FORUM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hmmm so far there's no support for the Downhill Forum at all so why are you stressing about it? You're the only person that seems to want anything do do with a Downhill only forum so perhaps it's time to drop it.
Just a thought

I only think theres no support because everyone thinks i'm trying to split the MTB forum. Which i'm not trying to do.

But you are still indirectly doing it. There isn't enough posts to warrant having a dh forum. To make one would really thin out the posts in mountainbiking...
and really...if you want to talk serious dh/fr...go to nsmb, pinkbike,hcor or ridemonkey. All 4 are heavily dedicated to the 'hardcore' ;)...

Wrong. There's no support because no one wants to have another subforum to create, maintain, and navigate to if there's no need (which there's not).
well if you want a DH forum, than we should make a freeride one, and a X-country one, and a trials one, and so on. so in the end we'll have a whole bunch of forums with like 3 people in each one... what a comunity that will be.
