    Why this forum is good

    I have only been a member here for a couple months, but I have come to the realization that this is one of the best forums on the internet. On most other forums everyone thinks they know everything, everyone argues and talks sh*t and they all act like they are demi-gods in their own right(especially in music forums).

    But here most people are friendly and very helpfull, there is no BS. Almost everyone seems like they type things just as they would say to your face, its not so fake here. There are many different topics and even if you dont start a thread or reply to one, there is a lot to learn here. Im happy that this exists. Im not a hard core rider by any means, just an average rider and also a mechanic(thats why i joined). I dont know why I started this thread, I guess I just wanted to say thanks to all the cool and genuine people in here. Keep on keepin on.

    it was you that made me think about it, but it wasnt any particular thread that lead me to this conclusion. Just everything in general

    Oh! Two compliments in one thread! Thanks man!



    Seriously, though... it's all Joe. Great members with great advice, great debates, and a type of civil decorum help to make this place somewhere I'd like to spend my spare time (and not so spare time too!).

    This forum is way better than pinkbike; there ,they all brag about things they probably never did and they think they're pros. Cheers to Joe for a good job,

    Yeah, I like this forum.
    I try and say about what I would in person, online, and the way I talk in person doesn't go over well with some...

    Actually, it doesn't seem as bad here because I actually do know everything.

    This is a great place. Very few "online communities" are really very community-like.

    so far this thread would be a perfect advertisement....but that doesnt happen with online communities. Unless its MySpace, but that place is so ridiculous, everyone is so willing to write everything about their lives(most you cannot trust) and then they have there "friends" that are for the most part a bunch of fake individuals. No one can really take anything from that site, here if your heart is trully in any form of biking thenyou have a place, and you learn from it, and teach others. Whether its checking your rim strip to prevent flats or complete rebuilds using any number of various parts and tools, there is always something new and insightfull. Im starting to sound stupid so Im done..........................for now.

    When I first joined I was a little intimidated, because I didn't know squat about bicycling. Now I think I know everything!!

    But I do agree... best forum on the internet.

    Also, when I look at other forums there impossible to navigate. But it is super easy to go through this because its not all like blue and dark and all that crap. Thanks everyone, if it wasnt for you I'd have a life!

    Iím argentino (from Argentina), i live in a very little poor province, my english is horrible, and i have other idiosyncrasy (latino). That put me in some ďtroublesĒ. But the people here endure me and give me a hand all the times i need it. I enjoy reading what they post and learn a lot, not only about bikes, but about the people, how they feel and think. This site showed me that a lot of things others says about the first world people are prejudice without foundations. For me is a window to learn about people in the world (and learn more about me, of course).

    Haven't been here long myself but I feel Bikeforums taking over my life. At least untill I can get back out there Bikeforums keeps me on the right mindset. But lets not go hating on Myspace !!

    I find it a very useful tool and can vouch for over 75% of my friends to be real individuals that I can say I have spent quality time with of some sort or another. Maybe I met them before I found out they were myspacers or maybe I met them through myspace. Either way it is a great networking tool, especially if you travel often. It lets your friends know when you are going to be around and what you have been up to. I think I spend an equal amount of time on Bikeforums as I do on myspace.

    Check it out in its full intention and fully functioning http://www.myspace.com/pretzel
