    There’s a healthy amount of organised group rides right now, and i’ve seen plenty of invites and offers to ride elsewhere with complete strangers.

    As for Advice…..if you don’t agree with the advice being given then there little point in asking, there is always good advice to be found on here, the difficult bit is sifting out the bad advice and pi$$ taking.

    I’ve met alot of riders from off here and other forums, etc and have never met a complete jerk, but maybe that’s me,(the jerk that is).
    Becouse STW is used by sooo many, there’s bound to be some that aren’t to everyones liking, that only normal.

    I’m getting a bit of a short fuse so I guess you can put me in the tosser camp. Must say though I’ve learned a lot about bikes and bits and bobs and maint from folk on here……also very much enjoy trading used parts on classified, feels like being part of a big club.

    Are though a bunch of guys ready to jump on you for the slightest reason. Ignore them, most folk are cool.

    On the whole it’s sound. Things that kick off generally get resolved, and the running rivalries are to be expected and tolerated.

    I have met tons of people from here, bought/sold and swapped stuff and got good quality free advice. What do you expect from a forum?

    Unless you are prepared to name these tossers…it’s a pretty spineless, feeble and pointless post.

    If you are prepared to name and shame…then it will be very interesting 😐

    Ima trail – a must??

    Only been using this forum for a while now. When I’m thinking of buying a something new, will usually ask for advice here first. Usually get loads of useful replies.

    Had a go at other forums, and they all seem rubbish compared to here – just seem to be a load of lycra hating fatties with all the gear and no idea in other places. This forum is much better then anything else I’ve seen.

    And that ima trail looked awsome – some of those bits looked way to narrow to get a bike through! Mustve been the camera angle?

    what he said above you get used to the sniping learn who the vocal minority are and filter out the cr@p. (just start a thread on the following helmets/consuker rights/ riding in paths/ superstar pads /God v Science /something moderately racist/right wing rant women/islam/thatcher and a topic on Clarkson…you have all the information you need now.
    I ride with a good few (or is that a few good) people from this parish and they are all perfectly reasonable in the real world (even the singlespeeders).
    Post during the day most of the work shirkers seem to be more helpful and sober so you get better advice.
    Dont EVER mention it again you just get flamed

    See Simon Ralli’s thread here for an example of how great this place still is.

    You forgot singlespeeders are idiots, full sus is for pansies and steel is a stupid material to build bikes with.

    Glad you liked it, that vids from another thread on here, found by someone else on here – the site working properly, so others can enjoy it, just ignore any tossers you come across! πŸ˜‰

    I agree there are some great people on here it’s just the prats spoil it and they must really put of new mountain bikers with there sarcastic answers

    Yeah agree with you on that, it can get a bit elitist at times, thats just peoples ego’s though, were all guilty of that from time to time!

    beerbelly

    This used to be a good place to get advice and meet other people to ride with now all i see is people being ridiculed when ever they ask advice always thought mountain bikers were a nice bunch but now im not so sure

    Its an internet forum, all life is here.

    Just ignore what you don’t need.

    sounds about right. I have learnt stuff on here, I have enjoyed a few debates. The only thing that really annoys me is the perving – Friday A&A – I thought that shit went out in the 70s

    Loads of interesting people here, very few jerks from what I see. More often than not its just simple pub-type banter mixed in with good advice. Rarely do newbies get picked on.

    TJ – out with the 70s? Such things have been “in” for as long as I’ve been alive, and I was not alive in the 70s! Are you mad or just getting old? πŸ˜† πŸ˜‰

    Little boys getting their kicks looking at pics of young women wearing few clothes is soooooooooooooooooo sad.

    Back in the 70s we knew no better – now we do.

    Its the one thing that really annoys me about this site. The right wing nutters I can argue with, the ignorant numpties put right or ignore, I can worship at the alter of bike geekness that sometimes one needs – but pin ups? get real, apparently there is a whole intenet full of porn out there. Friday A&A is in poor taste and indefensible. I think some sabotage might be in order

    Nothing perving about the Friday A&A thread – attractive fit people will always be popular. Now, if they were naked, then you might have a point, but as the sports persons aren’t then you’ve got nothing to get all New Puritan about.

    TJ – did you see the article about the 35,000 year old statuette of a naked woman? Naked woman
    WE’ve been perving, as you call it, for longer than history.
    Porn & pictures of naked people are a multi-billion industry. Please get over it.

    Only in your opinion. Other opionions are available.

    i miss the old days…….its still ok on here, but its still no 2003 – 2005 for me…….

    You could quickly get over a 100 rants about dogs on trails without a personal indictment thrown!! πŸ™‚

    OP’s right. Its been said a few times in the past. There used to be a time when you’d read a thread with tears of laughter/trying to stifle a laugh. Now, its bitterness and negativity. Go over to somewhere like Pistonheads (the welsh for Ambulance thread- basically a poster spotted an van in Hull with ‘Ambiwlans’ on and asked if we were dumbing down finally/society etc) and you are in hysterics πŸ˜€

    if you find it so report it to the mods. i think it’s harmless.
