Seems like a lot of posts deal with people asking advice on buying a new/used bike. Is there a way we could set up a forum specifically for that? Maybe a sub-category under Buy-Sell-Trade or Introductions or General Discussion. Don't really know the best place for it!
How about a forum called "Advice for new cyclists" or "Advice on buying"...etc.?
I can't tell you how many times I've given the same advice over and over. I know RideMonkey has "Stickies", posts that always stay at the top of the lists. Perhaps you could create a Forum for "Advice on new bike purchases" and make it a sticky so it's read by everyone, (or at least seen by everyone). That way people can read all the advice w/o doing a search function!
