Yes, for the most part. I just reread the rules after seeing your question. Urr, some of the jokes posted may be questionable on the offensive part but the other rules are pretty much adhered to. anyway, I think these rules make Bikeforums an oasis in a desert of unrulely message boards.
Personally, I don't want to read people insulting others or hawking their wares. I don't think the rules are difficult to follow. Just act as if you were talking to everyone in person. The anonimity of the web tends to turn people into idiots. Just be civil.
Oh yeah, there's a great group of people here. Welcome to the Forums, Hope you stick around.
i'm looking around for a new forum. i am on the ridebmx forum, bt i think it might be shut down soon because of ppl posting porn. so i'm trying to find a new home if that happens. i didin't look too much but some of the topic here look a little..."kid on a wal mart bike posting" looking. how to ride a wheelie? do you guy talk about more advanced tech stuff? sorry if i sound harsh, just wondered.
Sorry to hear about the ridebmx forum. The problem with the BMX forum here seems to be not enough members using it. I don't ride BMX but i would be interested in knowing how some of these tricks are done.
