Do what I do...


Build your own PC from used and often free parts and make it work. I also have dumb phones that plug into the wall/gateway and if I ever take my cordless handset with me I can be sure it won't work more than a block away.


These are the joys of spending money on food, clothes, rent, bike parts and occasional records.


Then again I really like using old, germy linen portraits of dead American statesmen and metal coins to buy stuff too. It's just like Christmas.

I should add that, as you can see, these are usually redirects, i.e. they try to take you off to another URL. Usually I just close the window and reopen a new one and nav back to BF. This is using the desktop interface, not the mobile site. I do not use the mobile site (I don't like the reduced usability), so I cannot comment on what happens there.

If it helps you any, those things pop up just about anywhere, I don't buy from Amazon, they just hope you do and will react to it, possibly taking the bait. They don't care who you are, or where you are, they possible know the site they are bothering and a script adds the right words and phrases...


Have you ever seen one of those scripts completely fall apart and give you all the options?


I HAVE...hee hee.

One of the most frustrating things can be that you block/blacklist something and they change it just enough or something so that it looks the same but it's not and if you go to block it again you get told you already did...at least in IE. Reporting the site and FULL URL can allow the ad provider (Google even) a chance to go whomever is trying to impersonate them, but most would rather block/delete the ads that let Google etc know, which is ironic and pretty sad as it would go unchecked.

Forum is barely useable for me on my iPhone & iPad. I’ve cleared history & cookies and it still comes back. Hopefully it gets taken care of soon. I’m lucky if I’ve got 5 minutes before it boots me off.

I am constantly getting the Amazon redirect, saying I won something, though my guess is that it is not from Amazon.

I only get it on my iPhone, not any computer. Only on BF.

BF this needs to stop. I like these forums but it stops me in my tracks and annoying enough that I am considering going elsewhere.

We're aware of the situation and working on it. In the meantime, if anyone encounters these problems, it's best to provide us with screenshots so we can get a better idea of what's happening to your experiences.

I think the problem is that we need to either teach some how to make a screenshot or the stupid ads won't allow you to do this and you'd have to use another phone to take a picture of the other phone.


The other thing is most likely ACTUALLY their own devices have a problem. Just because you 'only have a problem HERE' does not lead to the conclusion that the site is fully to blame, it can mean that you only experience the problem here because your usage is problematic and so far this is just the one place you perceive having this problem.


Honestly. I have to build stuff from leftovers. Ain't nothing perfect. You have to do as much as anybody else.

The other thing I've seen from most of these complaints is that you all are using Apple stuff and I have to wonder if you just assume it's bulletproof. NOTHING is bulletproof, only underexploited.

I can take a screenshot. My issue is posting it here since photobucket became useless.

If I get around to setting up another image sharingservice Iíll post a shot.

It appears the only way to avoid this crap is to avoid this website altogether. Really this is getting so annoying that I think its time to look for another cycling related forum that hasn't sold out to crap spam like this.

Something you can try if you are on CHROME:

  • Load chrome://flags/#enable-framebusting-needs-sameorigin-or-usergesture in the browser's address bar.
  • Switch the status of the "Framebusting requires same-origin or a user gesture" experimental flag from default to enabled.
  • Restart the Chrome browser.

I get this on my iPad as well but it is that stupid "You won $1000" and redirects to what "looks like an amazon page"

I am pretty much writing this forum off since I can not visit it on my iPad and that is the device I use most for forums. I suspect the issues are with the ad company they are using is not exactly a good one.

Thanks for the tip. Going to give this a try. FYI, Bike forums has been virtually un-viewable on my Android Moto 3g for the past few weeks - site usually redirects before I can even read the first post or two in a thread.

I was going to blame BikeForums, but reading up on the "framebusting", it appear the redirects are hidden in major ad suppliers like google. But for some reason, Bikeforums was the only site I go to that gets redirected.

The popup I was seeing looks like this:

[Update: You can turn it on now] Chrome 64 will block those pesky redirecting ads everyone hates

And then a warning it was caused by the last four adult websites you visited!

Sounds like Google is going to enable this feature in Chrome by default in January.
