    What happened to the forum?

    This forum was once the most visited subforum on mtbr. Full of interesting characters, plenty of tech, and many a knowledgeable fellow. Maybe even a girl or two.

    Now there's nothing but crickets.

    What gives?

    The forum is what we make it. Characters(people) come and go, interests change. Plus it's tough for a handful of posters(characters) to maintain momentum for any period of time.

    Turner is behind the ball and interest has waned. No one cares about a 5 spot. It's cross country boredom.

    It is weird because Turner's are better than ever. I love Turner but the absence of a true all mountain frame has not been good--at least for this forum. I have to believe Dave Turner feels they are more of a hassle than a money maker. I'm guessing that he doesn't want to deal with broken frames. Who knows.

    I figure you can size up a real adrenaline junkie type mtbr member by the amount of travel and brand name on the bike...regardless if it sits in the garage most the time ! Meh , my Turner and my other bikes are just for the mere pleasure of riding ! Could careless about the past or present wannabe hardcore types that like to hear themselves boast of their skills !

    Granted more tech talk and stoke would be appreciated.....Tscheezy sure knew how to cover the Interbike stuff and stoke and yeah your right something just isn't the same !

    Oh contraire. I care very much about my 5 spot. There's very little cross country about it outside of the fact that I pedal it great distances to descend on it.

    I'm not sure what you mean by cross country but I enduro the shlt out of mine. I even had to buy a flourescent helmet.

    Pay attention to the rocks that you see but don't slow down the loco motion badass 5 spot choogah choogah.

    Of course bikes to me are tools, not roof rack jewelery where internet specs matter more than hauling ass down trails. So you know.......
