    Wait a minute, I don't recall seeing you over at C & V?

    Did I miss you? How could I have missed you?

    They had a forum for that, but BF had to shut it down cause there were too many complaints. Lots of nastiness and fights going on in there. Seemed like every one there needed to get the last word in.

    You already have a star.

    I agree, scanning multiple forums is what works for me... Over 50, vintage rider, does some organized road rides, hoping for long distance, mega-clydesdale with an eye toward commuting, and maybe some mountain biking again some day, who loves touring bikes and might some day actually do a tour. who should be training instead of gaining even more weight, and does most of his own wrenching. And likes the atmosphere in Foo.

    I scan through about 6 or 7 forums on the average day... and if the site is down, I go over to cyclingforums, which is a poor substitute... but I go over there sometimes even when this site is up.

    And I sometimes wonder what goes on in the Women's forum too.

    Wow! I'm an about 50, vintage rider, does some organized leisurely rides, hoping for long distance, somewhat-clydesdale with an eye mountain biking some day, who loves and owns touring bikes and will soon actually do a tour. who should be training instead of gaining even more weight, and does most of her own wrenching. And likes the atmosphere in Foo. But I know* what goes on in the Women's Forum.
