    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!

    Go ahead and start a new thread with you own rules if you like. This thread will go back to what it was originally intended to be.

    So this thread doesn't get derailed any further, please take the moderation discussion to PMs. You can contact me, Siu Blue Wind, or the head administrator, Tom Stormcrowe. Thanks.

    Which is fine, Gus, I am a Social Scientist by training, after all. It becomes a comparative behavioral experiment that provides me with new data, so go for it.......seriously. I operate on scientific method and never get butthurt if new data tells me something is wrong with prior conclusions. Prove me right orprove me wrong, either way, I gain new knowledge, so it's a win/win scenario.
    on light duty due to illness; please contact my assistants for forum issues. They are Siu Blue Wind, or CbadRider or the other 3 star folk. I am currently at home recovering from a couple of strokes. I am making good progress, happily.

    It's hot. The only thing I would tweak would be to rotate the bar up just a little bit, so that the drops were parallel to the top tube or nearly so... I like how that looks and find in comfy as well.
