Alot of people here who consider themselves old-school are quick to jump on someone's thread and tell them to go look for it. If everyone is gonna snap at newbies about posting something without looking around first, then we might as well just make the whole forum a comprehensive locked FAQ and just have one sticky titled "b!tching"
I understand telling someone to search for things that don't change, "like which bag has a stash pocket for my kool-aid". But if its an actually bike part why don't you post on what you think about it or how you like to run yours instead of telling someone to look it up. How are we supposed to be a community when a new guy comes around and we just bark "use the search function"? That just makes us look like a bunch of arrogant a$$holes. Last time i checked, this wasn't the roadie forum (my apologies to all the roadies who aren't arrogant a$$holes).
Nobody here knows everything. If some guy is asking about clipless pedals, or bullhorns, or whats better and IRO or a Pista (IRO by the way) then tell him your insight or ignore the thread, because when you post "go search", the thread that annoyed you in the first place doesn't go away. It just gets moved to the top of list so you can see it the next time you log on.
