Post moved from another thread to its own thread. Sigh.

You can get 31.8 clamp BMX bars too.

I'd be reticent to put big ol' bars on that stem personally. In your other posts, it sure seemed like your steerer was 1", whereas this is 1-1/8" maybe I'll look again...

A-ha, looks like it is 1-1/8". I didn't realize how recessed the other bits were in that other pic when I looked at it before. Now I'm kinda worried about how much stem is showing above the top of the steerer tube, someone may have put a fork with too short a steerer on that bike.



Anyways, have you considered just getting cruiser bars? You'll be upright and won't have to get a new stem.

Yeah I saw that eventually, had to scroll down a ways. Not sure what all the numbers in the listing title mean.

Adjustable stems are a terrible way to get more height. The higher you need to go, the closer the bars come whether that is a good thing, or not. A (literally) more direct way to go up, is to get a threadless stem extender. You can get up to 4" of height extension and if still more is needed, riser bars can take things from there. Sitting more upright takes weight off your hands, yes, but more weight goes on your other end. The weight has to go somewhere.

OP you need to get a grip. The mods have been trying to help you. Try posting your question more concisely. 25% of your tl;dr should be enough to get the help you need.

They don't have a question. I understand the situation now. To your point though, quite unfortunately, people who need to be told to get a grip are usually not capable of taking that advice ...

First of all sir, let's calm down. Things work out better when everyone is calm and collected.

Secondly and most importantly, do NOT ever disparage the mod staff. We are an unpaid volunteer group of forum users trying to help and perhaps save you from needing to make a trip to the paid help at your local bicycle shop. Is that clear enough for you? The moderator was trying to help you. Do not insult the mod staff. Thank you!

Now, can you explain to me, without the hysterics, where you would like your problems to be addressed? What forum, what thread, and why?

I thought you'd recently complained about your post being removed from Adaptive Cycling. That's probably why a helpful mod put a post of yours back in Adaptive Cycling.

What part of this are you not understanding ?
Ok, letís discuss this issue via private messages. Why you had to wait for a holiday to iron this out is unfortunate, but letís give it a shot this morning. Iím sending you a PM right now.

Bill there is nothing to work out . One of the moderators took one of my replys from another thread and for some reason started this new thread, and put my reply in it . You don't need to talk to me or message me , you need to message the mod that did this and ask them why they did this . Like I said above just delete this thread that the other mod started . Its really as simple as that .

Ok, you choose a public hearing, so here goes:

1. In your haste to join and solve a problem you tried to subvert the 10 post rule with junk posts. We don't accept junk on these forums. You need 10 meaningful, substantive posts over two days to gain access.

2. Next, in your haste you replied to a post in a zombie thread. It's a dead thread where you will never get a response, so the moderator kindly moved it to start a new thread for you where you might get some answers.

3. Next, in your haste you started a thread in the Introductions forum where new people come to say hello and mostly state their general interests. Substantive, detailed cycling discussions are not allowed in the Introductions forum, so the moderator kindly moved it to the Adaptive forum for you.

We have rules and structure to keep the forum running smoothly, you cannot start posts and threads anywhere you want. If you had slowed your pace down a bit you would have seen the moderator explain these things to you, so he definitively didn't deserve the insults you directed at him. Your fault, not his.

Like I said above just delete this thread that the other mod started . It's really as simple as that .
We can delete the thread you don't like, no problem, and you can start another thread wherever you want, so long as it isn't in the Introductions forum.

Anything else?

OP: you might want to remember that forum moderators and administrators (identified by one and three stars, respectively, next to their usernames) can get you banned you from this site. Such a ban can be either temporary or permanent.

In the past, insulting forum moderators has in fact resulted in BF users getting banned.

The above is unsolicited advice, so give it whatever value you feel it deserves. But if you think you might want to stick around BF, you might want to take it to heart.

All I'm asking is for you to delete this post that I did not start . I wasn't asking a question , I was giving a answer in the other thread . Just because a post is a few months old doesn't mean people can't reply to it if it shows up during a search on a subject they are looking into . That thread has something to do with what I'm working on so I replied to a health problem . It was not in haste . I was looking for this type of thread and I found it . What part of my reply gave the mod the idea it was a question that needed to be answered ? If you don't want people to reply to what you call zombie post with answers to their questions then close it to new replys other wise people are going to try to answer or add things to the thread no matter when it was started . Its just not for the person that started it but for anyone looking into the Question or statement that was post . How much time has to pass before you title it a zombie thread ? 1 month 2 months ? 3 months ? Pick a number so everyone will know . If you don't want people to add to what you call a zombie post them don't let it show up in the search . Above all don't allow mods to take a answer from another thread and start a new thread . Again delete this entire thread that I did not start .
