I use the catalogue side of it. Not used the user gallery. I love the old catalogues though. Could do with more though. Maybe some newer ones past 1997/1998 ish so I can have a daydream on that too :) Oh and some Scott catalogues too.

I always use it when I want to find out info about my latest bike build. I get an idea of spec that way.

Also when I want to get the right era g/set on a bike frame I've bought.

One reason might be that the contents don't show up in one's internet searches for information.
