    CbadRider (and BillyD) are speaking English, it's weird people can't get what they are saying. What they are requesting isn't all that hard to follow.

    If you don't like the way someone's bike looks, you can say so, but saying a bike is ugly because it has a water bottle or a saddle bag is lame. Stop being lame.

    i agree with you, is about HOT or NOT HOT bike, not about you have a water bottle or a saddle bag.

    They are, but they're also trying to change what could arguably be the defining thread of the 41 simply because some folks got upset by the manner in which their bikes were critiqued. Almost as if they forgot that the internet is a snarky sarcastic cesspool.

    Oh, the horror if this is the defining thread of the 41. I think it is the "we're going to yell at you" thread.

    Here's some more. How someone can take these comments personally is beyond my understanding.

    It is debatable which is more lame... applying the staging "rules" harshly or getting so upset when you get a not for what ever reason that it warrants notifying a mod.

    I live in Dallas and Austin has the most severe climbing I see aside from vacation to New Mexico, so I decided it was time to man up and get the 53/39. I'm still slow and weak though.

    I'm surprised so many people are pleased with my embarrassingly cheap bicycle. It looks great for what it is, rides even better. I'd have a hard time convincing myself to spend more money on a respectable frame.

    What's the use of the crank? It's for transferring power to the rear wheel. Noob.

    Does that have anything to do with responsiveness?

    No, but I am getting the sense you have some serious crank envy.

    Since Ravenmore didn't post any Rules when he started the thread and he didn't nominate anyone to be Rule Enforcers, we decided to bring the thread back to its original intention of giving people a place to post photos of their bikes without getting ripped apart because they happened to have a water bottle in the cage. BillyD was given the fun job of trying to bring the thread back on track. He's been trying but we're still getting a bit of resistance and some of the Rule Enforcers are having trouble letting go.

    It's time to let the thread move forward and put an end to the drama. No one is forcing anyone to post in the thread, but if you do, you need to follow the original intent of the thread and play nice. Trollheim is available if you want to start a "Post photos of your bike my way or I'll rip it apart" thread.

    This is nuts. Things can evolve over time or should be allowed to. Here is my suggestion. Let this thread be what the admins wish it to be and let's start a new hot or not thread with suggested rules on how to properly present your bike for critique. And as long as feedback isn't over the top nasty people are free to express themselves. We will then see which thread survives and which one fades to the back pages. Let the members decide!
