Is it true this forum is going under?

If so, where are the Velonews expats going to next?

The main page hasn't been updated in a few days, was wondering what was up.

Berzin beat me to it. It the main page hadn't changed, I was going to ping Keith as it's been a week for that Darach McQuaid headline.

Then again...do I really want tri guy/girl giving me bike handling advice?

PS - If this forum group implodes today, I end up with the coveted #51 (post)!

I was wondering that myself. I kept refreshing the page to see if Chrome just wasn't updating the site. I so, so miss the VN forum. I thought that this was going to be a good landing for the old forumites but it never really got going. Been looking at Slowtwitch and Cyclingnews but there are a LOT of a-holes in those forums. Not that VN didn't have jerks (or rather, one big jerk with 6 usernames), but the posters in Cyclingnews are vicious.

He is going to keep the forum up for us.

He said to me cryptically, "long story on the rest..."

So...it ain't good.

I'll never forget the Sole of the Dark Night! Dude was nuts. A few other wild personalities over the years

Thank Steve for us KR

If this goes down it'll probably be it for me with forums and what not. Long live VN from back in the day. The other options all have a niche group I just don't want to deal with. Cyclingnews is a total wreck (one could write a book or a TV series with all its disfunction) , Slowtwitch is hard for me to even describe, Paceline - argumentative 50 year old hoarders, Velocipede Salon - a clever, clever club. The rest are kinda full of the unwashed. Hope this stays up

huck, and I am 60! So I guess I've moved on.

I do have 6 bikes, but the ones I don't ride much (hoarding) are a ~1980 LeTour set up as a commuter (and weighs a full 30 pounds before WBs, lights and bags) and Team Dumpster, a bike I have crashed with real injuries to myself twice. (Neither the fault of the bike but I am having association challenges. Besides its replacement is way too much fun.)

To get back to topic, didn't one of the LA fans who bravely stayed on at VN to save the fort predict we would destroy this place like we did Velonews?

My guess is the UCI is shutting this place down due to illegal discussions on jersey numbers.

Or some Specialized perceived copyright impingement. Those guys are mean!
