General Cycling Discussion - Racing forum?
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.

so where's the right place to discuss Racing stuff? i mean races i do and tactics and gear and stuff, not talking about pros... the 'Racing' forum here is almost 95% about pro racing and stuff...
i posted a question in 'Training and Nutrition' about 'Race Warm-up' but it's really a question about racing - OK, it's kind of training but not really... also very few people seem to read/comment in the 'Training and Nutrition' forum.

I suspect that the Racing forum has been mostly about pro racing lately, since the local racing season hasn't quite started in most places in North America just yet. Post there and see what happens.

well the way i figure if its bike related, why not post it in here... it'll get more views.
i race!! i race others on the road. I did a little short stand still acceleration contest with a few other bikers. They never came close.
i did loose to a biker on a ROAD BIKE going at about 15mph and up. I have fishing gear with me and a tackle back pack. I ran out of gears with the second front star and i didn't want to shift it to the biggest front star because my gear is too heavy and i may loose control. The second guy with the one i race gave me the tumbs up.
BTW, i was sitting down and pedaling with he was standing up for more torque to the wheels.
The Racing sub-forum in the roadie forum is fine for talking about personal races. The General Discussion forum is more for questions that don't fit the other forums.
