Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Vote: Minimum Number Of Posts to Start a Thread

The amount of ridiculous threads being started is, well, ridiculous.

How many posts should a newb make before being able to start a new thread?

Yeah even as a fairly new member myself I've only made the mistake of making one pointless thread. I've begane to notice the amount of pointless threads recently.

The current members have no problem making ridiculous posts... with that being said I'd say that newbs should post like crazy from the get go.

Yes lets encourage people to up their post counts as much as possible.

1 new thread/week for newbies. 1/day for everyone else.
