Maybe we should start prefixing all posts here with :
Fixed or SS Answers Only : <post title>
That way, when it inevitably gets moved, geared riders can be ridiculed for posting in the wrong thread.
The thing is, SS/Fix is really a sub-cult(ure) in biking. We ride differently than a lot of others. We may want to know the opinion of other people that ride the way that we do, not those of everyone that rides. That's why a lot of things are posted here, rather than the 'appropriate' forum. I kind of thought that was one of the reasons there was a SS/Fix section on this site.
Also, the sticky in buy-sell-trade for ebay fixies is a really good idea, but it should be moved here. Roadies on carbon fibers would probably care less about a 1920's track frame than they would about the color coordination between their socks, shoes and team jersey. MTBers would probably care even less. Unless they get their own thread, having one just for us really feels like discrimination. Keeping it here lets everyone know that it is a 'for sale' kind of thread, but still view new posts. And they would know that it's a SS/Fix/Track bike. Best of all worlds, IMHO.
I'm not saying that all of the threads that have been moved should have stayed here, just that some of them were asking specifically for the opinion of SS/Fix. I feel like if I post 'Best Album of 2004 to ride a Track Bike To' it's going to be moved to 'Books, Movies, Music and Entertainment' even though most people there won't have any idea how riding a track bike on the street is different...
Sorry, but it's been getting hard to follow where all these threads are now. I really like the 'View New Posts' button, and use it often. I try to stay on topic according to the board....
But would SS/Fix get the same treatment as Recumbant? If someone asked for the 'Best Album of 2004 to ride a Recumbant Bike To' would it be moved as quickly, or scrutinized as close?
I probably should have posted this in 'Suggestions and Community Assistance' - perhaps a mod can move it there?
If neccessary, blame the Jameson for this post.
