    Ability to Search using some short terms (3 figures long)

    It can be frustrating when using the search tool to search using short terms.
    It seems to disallow terms 3 figures or shorter.
    I can understand not wanting to search for things like 'to' or 'an' etc

    But if I am search for a specific model number (e.g. TREK 830) it fails because '830' is too short. Then I search just under 'TREK' and I get WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY too many hits.

    If I search under 650B, I do get hits

    is there a way around this? I like to do research on model numbers, and it is nearly impossible to do that with this type of search filter

    Thanks!

    I think a reference to another thread would be good:

    Searching

    So, you might want to PM Joe or Brian about including that type of thing--still don't know if it will make it happen, though, and I don't know whether or not a specific term like could be feasible. But you could ask .

    Thanks
    I dropped a message for Wilbur

    it seems being able to search using numbers (e.g. 520 or 830 etc) would be useful.

    Well, yeah, that works too. But then I have to read ads.
