sorry, don't mean to bring up the separate thread issue again... BUT... i was poking around the chicago fixed gear site (http://chifg.com/) and it's pretty nice. i like the separate stickies for commonly posted topics and it would be cool if we could have the same e.g. faces, ebay/craigs, beer rides, times to go bug keith..etc. their site doesn't use v_bulletin but i think the functionality of the site is fine. uh, i guess what i'm trying to say is if someone wants to host something similar. hahaahaha, ok, that's what i thought. back to regularly scheduled rambling.
edit: on the flipside, i'm aware that having an exclusive thread sounds rather cliquey and if that's where it's heading then fahgeddaboutit.
