Mostly I'm just curious.
I don't think the road bike and road racing is a good parallel, because there's an awful lot of road riding that is specifically road riding but isn't racing. I commute on my cross bike, but if I want to talk about that I go to the commuting forum. If I want to talk about riding my cross bike on the local backroads, I go to the road bike forum. Etc.
It doesn't seem like either forum gets enough traffic to clog anything up.
Anyway, it's no big deal. Like I said, I was just curious. I see plenty of racing related posts here, and I wondered if there was some historical reason for the split.
