I am undecided
I like it on here as everything is together and it does have that 'matey' feel like the MTB section, from comments on bikes, regardless whether its an old Raliegh through to a some of the rare one off's at the top end, through to people helping each other out with parts. I havnt found this on any other road site.
Then again this site is filled with lovely bikes, some real gems that should be seen by a wider audience. I think if it was a seperate site it would grow to rival the size of the MTB site. Retrobike is seen, and this is my opinion, as a MTB site and the road bikes section is seen as its poorer sibling. The majority seem to come here for the MTB and I see this with the Macretro section. We have a lot of rides for MTB but I am having a lot of trouble getting a road ride together, theres maybe only half a dozen or so who I can think have road bikes.
It is convenient the way it is as I veiw both sections each visit and 50/50 which section I look at first, depends what i am riding or into at the time, winter is mainly MTB and spring/summer I have a lot of Roadie stuff happening. There seems to be so much information, knowledge and bikes on here and it does sometimes feel a bit hidden away. Its own site, I am sure, would bring a lot more members and I am sure grow to be one of the best of its kind, if it kept the same feel. It would also bring a lot more work I imagine.
Just my views, and I would support it either way.
Carlsberg dont build Singlespeeds but if they did.......they would probably look just like mine.
I've spent half my life on bikes.........the other half I wasted
