    Rotorburn MIA?

    Anyone else struggling to get onto RB, or is it just me?

    Rotorburn's down???

    How am I going to find out how these Fox 40's will go on my DJ bike? Or whether the visor on my full-face looks better up, or down?

    Personally I prefer all the biatching about MTBA and how they're really not looking after the interests of the riders. Or something.

    It's easy to laugh when you aren't trying to flog parts off on there. It's either farkin or feebay.

    I received a pm offer for an item I'm selling, and can't reply. I often have problems with RB late night/early morning.
    I see hills.

    I want to climb them.

    Trying to think of way around if for ya, but since uBB doesn't send email addresses with PM's, you're s**t outta luck until their tech-geek gets them back online.

    Sometimes I've found with uBB's that the problem exists with their main index page and other more deeply nested pages work fine. But trying to URL hack directly to my Rotorburn inbox gets me a Twitter 'page not found' page. No idea what's going on there...

    For those needing to sell, I've heard decent things about Gumtree. Beats dealing with 13y/o's and their "wanna split it up? liek them cranks!"

    Farkin/Rotorburn serves two purposes:

    1. a cheap option for flogging gear if you are willing to put up with the idiot PM offers from 12 year olds (ie- will you take $50 cash and a broken STP for that fork you're selling for $800?)

    2. a very good way to feel intellectually superior if you're feeling a bit down on yourself - the average IQ there is lower than room temperature (which allows the mods to feel both witty and intelligent when they get a chance to rip into yet another hapless kid for asking some dumb-ass question).
