Bike forums is banned in Russia

You can not login to this site from Russia, unless you use a VPN or Tor. Now let me say that this could be because of Putin and because of Trump. Meaning, it could be being blocked by US as well as by Russia. In fact it could be blocked by website host itself. When you type bikeforums.net site just doesn't come up. Using ping on bikeforums.net resolves IP address, but pings does not go through at all. However, as soon as VPN is used, everything is connecting fine.

This is FYI

Works behind the GFW as of today, it could suddenly change if someone starts posting about HK or that place in the NW of China.

Its a game of cat and mouse, and the cat is getting more aggressive.

Those disc brake vs. rim brake arguments were causing too much turmoil in Russia.

We do (or did) have a Saudi member. You'd think that they'd block any admission that people can move without a gas guzzler.
