    Clydesdale Forum is Refreshing

    Fellow Clydesdales,

    I just wanted to let all of my fellow Clyde’s know that I really appreciate the Clydesdale forum! I’ve been a member of the BF for quite some time and used to spend most of my time on the road cycling forum. Over the last couple of years the road cycling forum seemed to gravitate towards people making snide remarks in response to many posts and just looking to wage war with other participants. I actually quit scanning the BF for quite a while and then the Clydesdale forum started.

    I just wanted to share with you that I find it very refreshing to see the comradely and support offered on this forum. You guys have regained my interest in the BF and I’m glad to be back.

    Just thought I would let you know….
    Uphill or downhill; headwind or tailwind; Pavement or Dirt ... it's all good.

    Thanks, Kid-Cycle! Much appreciated! Yep, we're trying to put together a tightly unified, but open and welcoming community here.

    Actually, the term comes from the triathlon world and represents a really STRONG athlete. We might be big, but we can pull the whole pack is what it really means.

    Aw heck, they're just jealous!

    Remember they are a bunch of skinny little stick figures that'd blow away in a light breeze!

    I dont know if IBM used the same marketing slogan over there

    "Slim might be in
    but
    Fats where its at"

    The only thing IBM has done that I have ever appreciated.

    Yeah, that is serously way too much cash to plunk down on a starter bike. Did you encounter that at the Road Cycling forums or something?

    Some of us may ride $3k plus bikes but that is not the point... my point is the people participating in the Clydesdale forum appear to be more interested in sharing experiences and knowledge as well as providing support for others and they have a place to brag about personal accomplishments. It seems to be more of a community and I like it that way

    Yep, and we work hard to keep it that way too! We work hard to keep the riff raff out (wonder why they haven't run me out yet! )
