It could be set up as a general "Equipment" forum at the same level as the rest of the main forums, or as a sub-forum within forums like the Road Forum or Mtn Bike Forum or Touring Forum, etc.
That would be great. Here's how the first thread would go:
What bibs should I buy?
OP: I'm in the market for some bib shorts that are comfy for my bike rides. Any suggestions?
P1: Hincapie is great, so is Voler.
P2: Bibs? Why the heck do you need bibs? I ride 28 miles in cargo shorts. You don't need bibs. don't waste your money, unless you want to be like one of those Roadie goofs with more dollars than sense.
P1: "Roadie goofs?" Bibs and other technical clothing were designed with function in mind.
P2: And my cargo shorts *function* perfectly.
P3: Just find the tightest pair of jeans you can.
P4: You wouldn't need to spend big bucks on bibs if you didn't ride a DD.
