It wouldn't be for topical discussions per se.

Is the General Mountain Bike thread an off-topic thread?

Or is it the other way around with this being the only on-topic thread and the rest of them being off-topic?

do you mean general like we can't get very specific about things? like we can talk about drivetrains, but not disclose how many speeds or the brand name?

or general like in this is where you can post boastful rants and challenges to all comers with no reprocussions?

I bet this thing gets deleted or locked in about 5 pages.

good idea though..

I think he means more like a MTB Spam thread, where we can talk about MTB's in general, without having to flood the boards with mucho threads that last 4 replies.

I think.

Yes. That way it never gets off topic. Then when some 13 yr old with all the answers stumbles in he will be scolded and challenged. Feelings will be hurt and races will never happen.

Races never happen on here all the time....will be nice to have them all not happen in one place. Can I change my vote from 'bacon' to 'yes'?

I would have voted bacon but I think what you guys call bacon is a poor imitation of Canadian bacon.

I do enjoy me some Canadian bacon, but our bacon is mighty fine as well.

We probably talk the same. Although I've heard that you talk funny from a certain bush-axe wielding individual.
