Been using this forum for 10 years. The forum now is 99% useless. Nobody really posts good information in the actual bike related subforums. When anyone asks a question, they get useless/smartass responses which make them not want to post here anymore.

Only the politics subforum circlejerk gets new threads regularly, but wtf, on a cycling forum? Go on reddit or get a life.

I'm over on weight weenies mostly and replies are much more useful.

I thought I had breathed new life into this forum by asking for a new thread. Lots of useful tidbits in there....pizza, ladies who pass gas and deny it....good stuff, meaningful stuff. Kind of like Yahoo news but classy.

I have to admit I'm one of the people that also thinks something should be done to put cycling to the forefront of this place and not PO... like a way to easily hide PO in "new posts" list without having to get some 3rd party tool.

That said, I think some of the sour grapes from OP come from the responses he got in this thread:
https://forums.roadbikereview.com/save-some-weight/where-drop-weight-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.

PO isn’t the problem. The problem is that about 98% of RBR traffic are lurkers who seldom or never contribute anything. :(

Far as PO goes, it’s a madhouse, but at least ppl there post.

One of my first back pain radiating to abdomen came to me in student clinic. Lean athletic guy healthy as a horse in every respect except for occasional severe back/abdominal pain on left side. He had been to several MD’s and had full work up including X-ray with no conclusive diagnosis. We ordered MRI which was new tech (back in the late 80’s). No need for prior authorization then as insurance paid everything even with $hitty insurance!

MRI revealed 3rd residual kidney located adjacent to left psoas. Congenital anomaly that became symptomatic over time. He had surgery to remove kidney and 100% recovery.

You need proper imaging and a real Doc!
You wanna see some anatomic anomalies, check out PO. Tons of people there have their heads up their asses.

(Actually, it really is a cesspool, I can't recommend it...and I'm the moderator. }

Maybe OP doesn't like to search topics. When I started reading this forum, I almost always found helpful info on x, y, z just by searching.

I thought exercise was a great medium between folkes. Then you go to P.O. as it's the most active.
