That is the forum software number for the Road Cycling forum. Go to the index page of the forum and look at the address:
https://www.bikeforums.net/forumdisplay.php/41-Road-Cycling

General Cycling is 7.

And before you ask, The 33 = Road Racing And, No, the Clydes and Athena's are not The 248. Although, quite a few of us weigh right around that number.

I don't think you should have given it up easier than a Catholic school girl on prom night!

41 refers to the list of 41 reasons why everyone should ride carbon bikes with slammed stems and 700x23 tires. If you need to ask for the list, you are already disqualified.

Well everyone should. I'm pretty sure it's in the rules.

The 41...a wonderful mix of sarcasm, arrogance, pseudo-science, and cherry-picked data. Where a statement as innocuous as "I love bicycling" will get picked apart, spat on, debated, and mocked. I love it there.
