Last summer I posted pictures on the new TT bike I built in Road forums and in here at the same time. the thread in RF only had like 10 views and a few negative comments. The thread in Foo was pages long with a lot of foosters replying etc.... it eventually morphed into soemthing off the cyclling topic anyway as most threads in foo do. So I don't see why the sudden need to "tighten things up". It's still a "bike" website even if a few things cycling related pop up in the lounge from time to time. Just my two cents. I guess we'll see how it goes.
Agreed, the other day I posted a ride report on my bike that I'm not going to ride much anymore in foo. I got all kinds of great responses in the first 20 minutes. It then got moved to mtbing where not a single person posted in it and it died.
