    I was going to chime in the other day on this....

    CX is very knowledgeable. He knows more and probably forgot more then I'll ever hope to learn about bikes.

    That said.....

    No reason to be an ass about it to a person that posted for the first time. Maybe he didn't realize all the different forums. Maybe he thought this question fit under GENERAL CYCLING DISCUSSION.... Heaven forbid if someone talked pro cycling in here, or steroids, or anything that could fit in the 100 plus different categories this site has.

    It's nice to see someone new in here instead of the old crusty that scream get off my lawn to everyone.

    Please explain how he was being an ass. I don't get it.

    Was it this part? Seems to me he answered the OP's question. Nothing asinine there.

    Op...please post in the proper section of the forum, don't just drop everything in General.
    Was it this part? Seems to me he politely (please) instructed the OP to use the appropriate subforums.

    Gosh, if that wasn't nice enough, how exactly should he have worded it?

    Just so everyone knows, I didn't find cxwrench's reply offensive at all. He was very helpful answered all my questions and next time I'll look deeper into the forum before posting... nbd

    Fair, maybe ass is too strong in this example and thread... But it's the same thing all the time with CX *****ing about correct forums and usually it's on threads from new people.

    And tell me I'm in the wrong? Really think about. Some people are slackers and don't care. I'm not. I prefer order to no order. It's only because there no moderators on this forum, they'd be saying the same thing and moving threads if there were any. Deal w/ it.

    I love this.

    You can post how you want and expect others to "Deal w/ it" yet you can't handle others doing the same.

    You are too funny bro!

    Ok, I will post what I want in response to other posts, how bout that? I try very hard to make sure that every post I make (I rarely start threads) is in the proper section. Would you be bothered if every time you went to the store you found some carrots in the onion section?
    And don't call me bro, brah.
