Seems like it is fashionable right now for a few to complain about how bad bikeforums.net is right now. (Going on in MTB forum as well.) They are claiming that it is repetitive, non-informative, and so on. Having spent a lot of time on here for years I can assure everyone that things are no worse now than ever.
Aside from the fact that the server crashes almost daily, there is still a lot of great info being shared here. I still learn stuff every day, despite having been on here for years. The only real loss these forums have suffered is the loss of sydney in the mechanic's forum.
Aside from that, it is easy come and easy go. And why is everyone so suprised that there are repetitive posts? Do you expect to spend hundreds if not thousands of hours on an internet forum about bicycles and not have repetition? For cryin' out loud, they are freakin' bicycles. Bicycles themselves are repetitive. Just about every part on the bike does nothing but repeat itself all day long. So enough already about complaining it's repetitive.
