We'll be moving existing threads that are more appropriate to this forum into here, and leaving a redirect that expires in a week. If anyone has issues with a thread being moved, please let the moderation team know. If you want a thread moved to this forum, you can link to it here for us, as Raiyn has done. This will make things easier for the lazy, burrito eating, beer drinking moderators.

I went through some of the more obscure forums and sent a list of candidate threads to Donna.

I would just like you guys to know that I'm moving as fast as I can. I worked a 12 hour day today, and it's looking like I'll be working another tomorrow. Bad timing for this lovely forum. Bear with me, please.

I went through all 2007 threads in LCF and of the relevant, I moved most and copied some. I also moved or copied the threads above with the exception of the Xtracycle as commuter thread. I left that in Commuting. Allen's threads from his PMs are next. Also, if you see threads I moved that you think could be merged together, this thread is a great way to communicate that.

It's a great help that you guys post these threads this way. Unfortunately, I've got big fish to fry at work right now, so I'm fitting this in when I can. Must crash for the night...

YES!!!! I'm VERY glad to see this forum that will help both the
racer boys and the common man find and fill their seperate
needs by keeping the types of cycling they love/need in an
easy to find place.

Cycling CAN be everything to all people. Try that with a car.

BRAVO!!!!!!!!!

No worries. I just figured that if I posted the link and title it would save you the searching and give you an idea of what the thread was. 3 pages of content is a good start Donna, if you add more (LATER ) after your evil lil' project is over I won't complain.

Bruiser is a Papillon. He was supposed to be a Fox Terrier/Jack Russell, but we got ripped off.

[edit] He's a tough little dog. That's the beach he used to surf at in Australia.

I'm very pleased with the new forum and I can see myself spending a lot of time here. A big thankyou to the mods for all their hard work in setting this up

Okay, I'm a little slow. This seems to have started up about a month ago. I guess I need to scroll down more. I'm not exactly car free, but more concerned with just commuting. So now I won't have to mooch off the other forums.
