i usually "hang out" here and in general cycling. i've noticed a real difference between the attitude of the posters. for example...in general cycling, right now there is a post about a getting a full suspension bike with front and rear disk brakes, shimano everything, under 35 pounds, and the guy wants one for under $300. for his commute that has potholes, hence the need for full suspension. i tried to nicely explain this is entirely unreasonable, and people want to argue about it and say i'm putting them down. people ask some crazy questions, and when you try to explain they are not quite correct in their assumptions, they get all offended.
there are lots of good posters, lots of people with solid information who post there, lots of very cool people, but there are also a number of folks there who...i just don't get.
it's all really interesting. there are many facets of the diamond that is the "cycling world," lots of views and differences that make up the whole, which makes the "cycling world" so interesting and cool, but wow...i just don't understand some people.
i guess i assume if you ride a bicycle, you know certain things. but people are people, and even cyclists can be ignorant weirdos. (i'm not ignorant, but i am a weirdo)
