    What other forums do you spend your time in?

    I spend my time in the Clydesdales/Athenas forum but I spend just as much time in the Commuting forum. After that its:

    Electronics, Lighting and Gagets
    Fifty Plus
    Road Cycling
    Touring
    Electric Bikes
    Long Distance / Randonneuring

    I'll occassionally hit the Regional Discussions (Pacific Northwest)

    I guess it gives a pretty good indication of where my cycling interests are.

    Anyone Else???

    I haven't joined in any conversations yet, but I've spent quite a bit of time here soaking up information since joining. The forums where I spend the most time, other than this one, are:

    Advocacy & Safety
    Commuting
    Fifty Plus
    Family & Recreation

    I like to work on, tweek and otherwise maintain my bikes myself - the mechanics forum is fantastic. If I don't know how to do something or need advice; there is a wealth of knowledge over there. I read most of the posts on a nightly basis, to pick up tips and info, and search them on occasion looking for info. I can't see spending a hundred bucks every time I drop my bike off at the bike shop...so instead, bought the tools and picked up some knowledge to service them myself.

    I also ride a hybrid at times, that forum is always interesting. The classic and vintage forum is also sweet, old steel is real. But I browse many of the forums off and on.

    Having been a heavy rider (270) and dropping below the Clyde weight to 198 lbs in 2010 and now having put 20 back on after a lack of effort last year, I have migrated back to the Clyde forum for inspiration to get back on track.

    I read through them all. Seriously, I prefer some of the ones that have nothing to do with my "interests" - I always find relevant insights. I have no interest in riding fixed, but the discussions over at ss/fg have helped me understand more about urban riding and bikes in general. The mountain biking people are really cool, and very free with their riding experience. The mechanics forum is just awesome whether you're a mechanic or not. A&S has taught me that no matter how safe you are, there's always someone ready to call you a sissy and someone else ready to criticize you for not being safe enough. And the road racing guys are competitive.

    The depth of knowledge and range of professional experience on all of the sub-forums is pretty much astonishing. Most of the time I'm happy to be able to sit back, read, and soak it in.

    I spend most of my time in the Clydes/Athenas forum. Sometimes I'll scour the General Discussion area but not often. I find there's much less attitude in the Clydes/Athenas forum than other various sections of the forum...

    I bow to the Mechanics forum. Knowledgeable, helpful, and extremely patient posters over there.

    Racing, mostly Masters racing but also the 33. Road, Touring, Training and Nutrition, A&S (mainly the interminable and unproductive helmet thread), general cycling, and occasional inputs elsewhere.

    One of the things I like about BF is the multiplicity of interest-specific forums. I've never really understood those who choose to spend all their time in one forum, but I guess there are those who come here mainly to talk to a bunch of posters they feel they have got to know, whereas I tend to prefer to focus on content and to go where the expertise is.
    There have been many days when I haven't felt like riding, but there has never been a day when I was sorry I rode.

    I learn a lot from the mechanics and try to offer any help that I can.
    I don't do vintage, I bought them new, rode them, kept them. Now they are just old bikes

    Commuting mostly, Touring too, and a little in the Mechanics Forum. Every now and then I'll take a look at General or Advocacy & Safety, but it seems a different and less pleasant crowd seems to hang out there and the threads usually aren't that interesting either.
    Everyone hates your lights. Throw them away & buy something civilized.

    Its not here, but I spend some time at Bonesmart, a website/forum for people who have knee or hip replacement. They have a "Cycling Club for us" thread, and I compare notes with other man-machine riders. A couple of them are former Bike Forums posters.

    Thanks for the site link. I'll use it to monitor my knees to see when it's time for another set.
    My preferred bicycle brand is.......WORKSMAN CYCLES
    I dislike clipless pedals on any city bike since I feel they are unsafe.

    I'm usually in Mechanics forum. Gear head! But Clydes otherwise. And I lurk on the Classic/Vintage.

    but because of this thread, I started to check out commuting, and Rec & Family.
    Yes, I can roll my own potsticker skins!

    This!

    Although I love the spats on A&S or the nerdiness of the Vintage forum. But I frequent many other forums not related to biking. But this forum, and the C&A subforum are my go to.
    Looking forward to my winter commuting adventure.....
