What do you use to read bikeforums?

What do you use to read bikeforums? I tend to find that the website, itself is a bit slow, and just isn't the easiest to read. Putting the RSS feeds into a feed reader like Google Reader or Flock seems to just give you the headlines on threads, not the replies. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Google Chrome. I also get this crazy long email digest thing every once in awhile. That's fun to receive on my crackberry, not. I post in a ridiculous number of threads.

Google reader. I dont want to read all the posts and replys. I scan topics in the reader then pick the ones I want to read. If they have the words 'noob', 'newbie', 'stupid question', 'help me decide' I just skip them.

I just use firefox myself. I should have them on a menu so I can just check what XML content there is, but I'm just too lazy.
