    WHAT?! YOU”LL HAVE TO SPEAK UP LOVE. I USED TO COME HERE WHEN IT WAS ALL FIELDS!

    I’VE STILL GOT ALL MY OWN TEETH YOU KNOW

    About 6 years mostly under a different username.

    I tend to get a bit bored of the arguments and infighting and stop visiting the site about once a year but so far I keep coming back. Can’t see that pattern changing.

    Sheesh, posting inane stuff on here rather than reply to my email, get your priorities sorted!! πŸ˜›

    Since 2004 i think. No idea how long i’ll use it for, til i get bored/can’t access the internet from the ocean πŸ˜€

    I logged on in the early noughties to sell a mojo.

    Been taking it seriously since 2003 though, hope to keep it up long into retirement.

    Not sure when it started, or why, or how long it will last.

    I get bored of the whole thing periodically and then interested again. I do like being able ask just about any question and get an answer. It’s a querulous google lite type thing.

    Too long – since Issue One, when was that?

    2002, but I did go walkabout 2004-08.

    I remember the exodus of loads of Surrey Hills/ND riders to Chocolate Foot. Can’t say that was the most civilised of places to hang out though.

    Er, a long time. 10 years, I’d guess (under another name previously).

    You see that 10th Anniversary flash on the front of the mag?

    That’s a clue. πŸ™„

    I got a login in 2003 as I wanted to sell a bike. Not sure how long I’ll stay, I guess as long as I continue to be entertained…

    EDIT: I have all the magazines (1 to 66 with two copies of issue 17 for some strange reason) but I’ve just cancelled my subscription so I guess that’s going to end. (Went to Dirt for a change).

    And, how long do you think you’ll use it for?

    About 7 to 8 years.

    Since just before Issue 1. About the time it went from GoFar to Singletrack.

    probably since the same year the very first SITS was . . .

    there were 2 motley crew teams put together, basically people who were billy no mates, but who all came on here.

    Made a good friend out of it, anyone else still nocking about?

    11 years, didn’t need an account to post on the forum back then so I usually just logged-in manually and that’s the reason I stuck with such a short username.

    I think the correct answer is:

    ‘I was here first, with a single speeder before bikes were invented and before niche was anything but a term to describe a specific environmental setting.’

    I had to check my posting history in my profile to find out.
    45 pages in 2 years.

    Not long.
    Quite a while I imagine.

    A long time – since the Go-Far days.

    A long time ago.

    I don’t frequent the place much anymore, but do occasionally look in to check that some people are alive, and that the rest of you are still rehashing what’s been written here a hundred times before.

    Since about 80ish bikes ago πŸ˜† . Sheesh, this site has a lot to answer for 😈

    Actually I even remember my first post – asking whether it was OK to file down a cassette cog to make the teeth longer for singlespeed use 😳 – Brant replied iirc. Oh, and yes, it did work . . . sort of πŸ˜‰ (niche ratio or what πŸ˜† )

    asking whether it was OK to file down a cassette cog to make the teeth longer for singlespeed use

    you know you can also file a whole tooth off completely to increase the gear ratio too?

    I think I found gofar but never really returned and definitely didn’t post on it – wasn’t much into the internet then & hardly ever went on at home due to ded slow connection

    Found stw proper maybe 9yr ago I guess, when I got broadband
