This has always been a pretty small forum but that helps keep the conversations civil. It never gets petty or tedious the way many other forums do. However that does mean it gets quiet in here from time to time, especially over winter when there is not much going on. Like madjak says I’m sure it will pick up again in a few weeks with the weather. I’ve always enjoyed the conversations on riding technique that go on here. Again, most other forums if not degenerating into name calling center on what farkles to get. Unless you are planning on shopping those conversations are pretty boring.
Ben had a post a few months back about his bike breaking down and how he would not be contributing any more to the forum as he was going to be bikeless for the foreseeable future. I don’t think that has made a huge difference as he was never very active in here, he would just do the occasional review on the main page.
