    i dont think its worth it. the only time i look up parts is when I want to see what it will look like, then I just go search bikeguide and get onebillionkabizillion examples. I don't trust random people over the internet for reviews, so i stick to people I know that have used them if i am that concerned.

    odd. I heard Austin Powers say something similar to that once...

    and that would be super cool.

    Odyssey PACT Tensioner: Doesn't stay tight, Doesn't make set-up easy, can lick my balls. Definitely not worth my time or money.

    I don't feel like writing anything now.

    It'll be really hard to sort the reviews if a lot of them get posted with the blog format. It archives by month, and I'm not sure if you can set blogger up with categories like type of part, brand, etc.

    Might be time to break out an HTML and CSS, PHP, Javacsript, etc. book if you're serious about making a good review site. You'll have to decide if you want the reviews to be long articles, or just little personal anecdotes that people can write. Look at dpreview.com for an example of the long articles, or newegg.com's reviews of their products for the short summaries.

    Good luck with it... I can maybe write a review of the Jim C's or something if you want, in a day or two, or the Animal ASM or Edwin grips.

    Dude such a good idea, but madman should design the site so it's not a blog like that. Make it like how bmx-test was, then lots of people would use it. I'll contribute some reviews soon.

    Did you see the words "I volunteer" in there anywhere? I kind of left them out on purpose... lol

    Making sites, even small ones, is a lot of work, and something like this that was really usable and good would be a huge project. I don't like coding, but I have some experience with programming and some web design so I would be willing to help with the concept stuff a little..

    I was thinking the same thing. I can set up the Archive's weekly, daily or monthly. But if Premium really gets the site going and people start reading it i think i'll try and figure out how to make a better archive by brand or something. We'll see. Either way i really like all that html crap and website stuff so i don't mind working a bit. I figure we'll leave it like this now and if it takes off i'll start figuring out how to do a better archive.

    So i just realized that i made Premiums site look really close to mine. Oh well.

    Once i figure out how to re-download Photoshop again i'm going to make some backround images for mine.

    EDIT: Mude - come over and help me get it again.
