    back to cycling after a 3 year lay off. What happened to the cycling plus website? I see its now bike radar, but doesnt seem too busy? This seems to be more like the old cycling plus site. Was there some sort of acrimonius split? Did i miss all the fun?

    Welcome! It's a long story, but basically Future decided to merge us with all their other cycling sites. We didn't enjoy the influx of kiddies from one of the MTB mags or the new clutch of moderators so we mostly all came here... we seem to have lost a lot of the racing boys along the way though.

    They almagamated all the forums from the different bike mags from Future. It was dropped on everyone with very little notice.

    There was a lot of jostling when it happened. Some tried it and stayed. Some tried it and couldn't put up with a couple of bolshy mods, so left. Some weren't happy with the way things were done.

    A lot of people came here as they found it the most comfortable, and possibly th most like the old C+. Shaun, the forum owner here, was very gracious in accommodating us all, and it's gone on from there really.

    And the second run of CycleChat jerseys is about to be ordered, so if you're interested then get in quick.

    If you liked C+ you'll like it here.

    Nothing as exciting...... moved up north and had two kids.
