    What are they doing? Why do they come here? Some kind of instinct. Memory, of what they used to do. This was an important place in their lives.

    all threads 53-11 seem to have been purged from the database.

    he doesn't seem to exist in the road cycling forum either.
    may i take this opportunity to say "woot"?

    I think it simply got to the point were he was no longer an asset to the forum, and we were losing quality members because of his BS. It was good timing, the same day I decided to put 53-11 on global ignore, he decided to give up his username. His current signature reads "53-11.........Yes, I was the biggest troll on Bike Forums. But I learned a lot....Thank you. I appreciated all your good insight in matters regarding cycling.".

    His posts will be back, but not in the next week or so...

    I say let this rock rest on the bottom. No reason to bring the posts back. We'd be using up valuable MERTON space potential

    What is an accurate description of a troll? I know about 53-11 but I still don't quite get the true meaning of a troll?

    "The well-constructed troll is a post that induces lots of newbies
    and flamers to make themselves look even more clueless than they already
    do, while subtly conveying to the more savvy and experienced that it is
    in fact a deliberate troll."

    i liked this part.....makes you wonder which is worse?

    about the gears...the short version is that you want numbers that are relative primes.

    if you want to make it even easier, just aim for having a chainring that is either 43 or 47 teeth (both prime numbers) and you'll get the maximum of 'skid spots'
