Not a long term member but the thread got my forum memories going and recalled Richie McCoy/Mr Freeride UK and his legendary orange boiler suit (did he use to post on bikeradar?)
Not really funny in the end when it finally dawned on everyone he had AS. some posters over on BM went straight to hell.
42, on the other hand was hilarious.Posted 4 months agotomhowardSubscriber
I have the same Vandal tshirt that Elbry is wearing in that thread, iirc it was his own ‘brand’. Must be 15 years old now, still wear it…Posted 4 months agoChrisLSubscriber
I’ve been here (quietly) for 15 years. Not back as far as GoFar but it still feels like a fair old time.
The oldest memey thing I remember may be “you are a troll and I claim my five pounds”. Which may well have been said on:

The star nut stuck in my carbon steerer thread was a good ‘un too
That was dan or beer, wasn’t it? Back when you could just type in any username for each post so trolling was very simple indeed. One of them was quite funny, the other one mainly tried to get people to click on links to disgusting web sites. I can’t remember which one was which any more.Posted 4 months agoNZColSubscriber

Badger, surfmatt, mint sauce, being able to ask brant about your order, the hack, the hamsters, bullhearts first postings. Picolax of course. Mumsnet, hora, tj when he was overtly Arthur scargill. Ah, I am old.bikebouyMember
I’m a newb compared to you lot. 5 years and counting down the days.
Sadly the days of endless architecture threads have disappeared, post a theme and let it roll.
Some personalities have sadly left, some reset themselves yet return to type.
Some hilarious threads have lightened my day, don’t really know about the old days but understand to some they still instill wonderment.
But it’s all gone a bit shit since the Brexit vote, divided and secular personal traits have tainted and blur over the good time before the vote.Posted 4 months agoChunkyMTBMember

2003 vintage me.
Ah yes, the Cannock Chase permit, so many asking about it. LukeB’s many threads. Wasn’t it slackalice who was the 661 pyjama boy? So many others
Ahhhhh bricks and planks for ramps, isn’t it, wasn’t it , marveeellous
You still want your stem cap hounsy?…. 😆
15yrs vintage here……. Luke’s slightly used energy bar was one of the best…. The ‘other’ forum that produced so many cool rides and meets.Posted 4 months agojonbaMember
I think I joined at uni way back in 2002. Changed usernames in one of the great crashes. Was introduced to the place by Fruit who was a friend at uni – before he was the infamous bike components mogul he became.
Really came into its own around 2006 when I moved to Somerset and met up with Dibbs, Sharkie and Knottie off of here to get shown all the “secret” stuff.
I miss the brief fun where we were allowed to tag threads… I tihnk only special people can now.Posted 4 months ago
