I don't know if you know but there has been a big shake up in the cycling magazine forum world.
cycling Plus, What Mountain Bike and MBUK used to have a seperate forum each. Now its all been put together in one big site called Bike Radar. I can see from the new Bike Radar forum that not alot of users like the forums.
A topic was posted on the Cycling Plus part of Bike Radar that users might like to try the Cycle Chat forum as it has a simular format to the old Cycling Plus forum that alot liked.
So hear I am a new user just trying this site along with a few other new users I am sure.
Yes, the cycling plus forum was merged with a couple of other forums at bike radar. It's upset some people - user names changed, post counts lost, beta version bugs.... so there's a campaign on in the cakestop (the equivalent of cafe here) to get people to move over.
The feel of this place seems much more like the old C+ forum, althought I am a bit worried that existing users of Cycle Chat feel a bit invaded.
I've moved over from Bike Radar in my ovine way. For me, it was just too big and cavernous.
It happened at acf too, after the last C+ debacle. Loads of C+ people moved en masse to acf and a few of the original posters there disappeared as they got overwhelmed.
But lots of them were also happy to have more people to talk to.
Then I left!
