    This was and is a great post. I think it's as or more important for people who've been riding for years and years to read this as it is for new riders, as more experience riders are more likely to be set in their ways and possibly have attitudes about some aspects of riding than new riders. It's an encouraging post though and the bottom line is great. Ride bikes and have fun.

    oh, and agreed, n00bs are probably the people who need this least. Everyone in the bike world needs to be reminded of these rules now and again

    I love my costco bought Northrock XC6. It looks good, it rides good and so far, it's holding up fine.

    I do like the points he makes though, other than the one that implies my precious XC6 aint no good.
    I would have to agree, though I bought my bike off Craigslist, it origionally came from WalMart and it has held up with few issues. And like the first few things imply, I like it so who cares, it works for me and thats all that counts. In addition, I ride it till something breaks, then I replace with a better quality part when money allows. So who cares where you bought it, if you like it and it works for you ride the hell out of it.

    Other than that, I got a kick out of how true most everything else is in the origional post.

    If posting pictures of your bike makes you feel better than riding it, then just do it.

    Is there anywhere to ask questions on specific bikes here? I can't make a thread because I just joined but I'm curious about a bike for sale right now on craigslist.org. It's a Cannondale CAD2 F400 with new brakes and tires for $250. Where would I go to ask?

    EVERY forum online, regardless of topic or hobby, needs a post like this. You should see the flamewars about cables over on the stereo forums.

    Hi. I'm after some opinions on 2 bikes that I'm looking at. I Haven't had a bike in about 12 years and was after some opinions from people in the know. Can I post the links on this thread? since I need 5 posts to start a new one and I created my account purely to ask for opinions!

    go post randomly 4 more times and start your own threads, dont derail this one with a non related topic.

    If you do it the right way, you will get more opinion than you can shake a stick at otherwise most will ignore you.

    26” wheels or 29” or 650b or 700c or 24” or 20” or whatever – yes, that wheel size is rad and you’ll probably get where you’re going
    That solves the 26" and 29" wheel debates!
