New member, needs 10 posts to post bike pics!

That sounds like a classified ad...

I tried to enter the classic and vintage clunker challenge and post pics to go along with the entry, but discovered I need ten posts before posting pictures. So hello, I'm David and I ride a 2012 Cannondale Synapse alloy and have a few vintage MTB projects, and now a vintage drop bar project. I have started the drop bar project so I'm no longer just a bike hoarder, lol. I really enjoy tinkering and have on cars for some time, so I thought I'd try my hand at bicycles. Who knew there were so many bike specific tools? Guess that's part of the fun.

Same as everyone else.

Seems like all of you I ran into the same 10 post problem. I tried to post on C&V only to find the 10 post rule. So here I am. I stopped riding years ago when I turned 16 and got my drivers license. Nine years ago when I turned 60 I started riding again on a Fuji Sun Tourer 10 speed. I had forgotten how much fun bike riding was. I since purchased a new 2011 Trek 2.3 and a used Trek 2011 Madone 5.9 frame. I have built the frame up and really enjoy riding it. The Fuji disappeared from my fathers garage much to my dismay. I have a nice Fuji Absolute that I rescued from the dump and just latched onto a Motobecane Super Touring the other day. The Moto needs a bit of work. Post 1 down 9 more to go.

I will say the 10 post requirement plus the 5 posts per 24 hours cap is a frustrating combination.

I too am abusing the inherent logic of the thread to get to the point I can post broken links or failed imgur uploads! I'm also a terrible photographer so the longer it takes the better it is for you guys.

My story is similar, once I got my drivers license I thought bike riding was gone forever. At 50, I am relearning the joys of riding.

I was a Supermod (did all the subforums) on one of the largest MMA/Fight forums on the interwebz... we had the same rule for the same reason. It's a pain, but it really does eliminate a lot of headache.

Welcome aboard
the rules and moderators keep this place pretty nice.
I haven’t seen near the amount of conflict as you might over at other forums like sherdog.
Hmm, shouldn’t it be fora?

Funny you should mention that specific fight forum, haha...

It was fun at first, but eventually all the conflict. Pretty much dropped forums all together for years, but since I started biking again, this seemed like a good place to try it again.
