What a great resource!

This bike forum is really a great resource. Coming from the days before computers, there were issues and problems where I had to continually re-invent the wheel to figure out problems or answer questions. The other day I was looking for the indicator chain for Strumey Archer 3 speed hub; there are 5 sizes. I punched it in the search engine, and there was a previous answer advising the length 5 lengths of the different models (Mark l-V). I measured my indicator chain and ordered the correct part. I can't imagine how I would have found this out 30 years ago..

Yay internet.

On one hand, it can be hard to remember to take advantage of the power, not to mention learning how to access it.

OTOH, we kind of automatically take such things for granted before long, and easily forget to appreciate it.

I agree, this forum has saved my bacon (or at lest time) on several occasions.
