    Your cinema reviews are absolutely spot on, but do the one on one titles. I had issues with the "mix" stuff. People LOVE your cinema reviews in general and ar pretty much amazing. You car reviews are unopinionated. They allow the flow to free contribution and are perhaps one of the best Lounge "chargers" in off season available for the internet.


    The Lounge and "RBR" is a stand up place for anyone with a good sense of humour, thick-skinned mentality and an ability to honour genious. Whom you possess.

    I don't use the 'New Posts' option. I have like 6 sub-fora that open in separate tabs and I mostly just read those. Those are General, Lounge, Specialized, Components and Wrenching, Regional, and Pro Cycling. If I need to read up or ask a question on something like Wheels, I go there from General. Works for me!

    I got my 1857 copy for $8 at an antique shop in Eureka Springs in 2004. That stays on the shelf though, most of the wear is on my paperback reprint.

    Had no idea they went for that much nowadays.

    That said, I think some of the sour grapes from OP come from the responses he got in this thread:
    https://forums.roadbikereview.com/sa...ht-368793.html

    At the end of the day, if you don't agree with a post that doesn't mean it's useless, and if you can't understand a decent point somebody might be making... well that might be your own fault.

    And you gotta let things go like water off a duck's back even when people are a little aggro in their responses. Hmm, maybe I should put up another post about how compact cranks are unnecessary so I can practice what I preach.
    I've said it dozens of times before: There's a very simple, one-line bit of code present in the VBulletin software (that RBR uses) that will exclude specific subforums from the "new posts" feed, both on a PC browser and on Tapatalk. Our sister site MTBR uses it, why don't we?

    There's nothing wrong with syphilitic goats. My motto is: Any port in a storm. (To extend the sailing metaphor.)

    Cervelo is a whole nother level of gross.

    I found out that if you are sailing a catamaran, you can easily flip it end over end if you do it just right! ALTHOUGH...I have managed to flip a mono-hull end over end when I caught a gust about 3 seconds before I was going sail it right onto the beach. Said beach (on Key Biscayne) was absolutely PACKED on that particular saturday afternoon and Rob and I got a standing ovation from easily a hundred people!
    Of course I'm sure...that doesn't mean I'm right.....

    I take it that while Trek makes good bikes, Cervelo doesn't.
