Forums with lots of active users

To be honest, when I first wanted to get into cycling & wanted to do a little research, I didn't think I'd find a place on the interwebz like this. I expected bits of info her, bits of info there...

But I never expected such a huge community. Just by eyeballing the BF front page, it must have over 300,000+ threads & millions of posts.

Question: What are other large forums that are out there? BF is the largest one that I am a part of. Are you part of other large forums or know of any other large forums?

When I'm not on bike forums, I'm on auto enthusiast websites called SVTPerformance.com or LS1Tech.com . Also I like to visit Digital Corvettes . com. They have a nice babes section!

Go there if you're looking to buy anything related to guitars, basses, or any other "normal" string instrument. I've backed off that site a bit though, since I no longer play in bands.
