What forums do you visit in BF?

Just curious. When I log in, I come here first, then check Road Cycling, next Training & nutrition and finish with general cycling.

Here and general. I occasionally visit other forums, but only if a title catches my eye.

edit: Oops, here, recumbents and general. How could I forget that one?

I usually check the NorCal and Pac.NW regional forums (I spend my time in both regions), then look into A&S (especially if there is something from CBHI, Genec or RandyA) and finally get to 50+. If I still want more, I'll look into touring, road, car-free, tandem and commuting. Each forum seems to have its own personality and personalities. It even seems like people change their own tone depending on which forum they are posting in.

C&V mostly, then Fifty+, and for fun/dream potential Touring. Also Tandems occasionally because I rebuilt a C&V tandem but haven't had much chance to ride.

Currently bike mechanics, 50+, recumbents, tandems, general.

I used to visit road bikes and fixed gear a lot but I've lost interest in them. There are a couple of forums that I've wondered what they'd ever find to post about but I haven't been curious enough to go look.

Foo, jokes, 50+. Sometimes A&S. I used to like Lighting and gadgets, but the demographic seems awfully young. I'm a fixed gear rider, but I don't post in SS & fixed gear, Demographic Waaaayyy too young. It's a language I just don't speak, apparently. 50+ is the best.
