It seems of late that the level of posting to forums has dropped.

Of course I might be totally wrong and the forums might be as busy as they always were but it does feel, at least to me, to be a little quieter than maybe it has been in the past.

Am I imagining this? (I do hope so!!!)

Hi. Maybe everyone has got it all worked out ! All questions asked and answered. Maybe newbies like me need to ask questions that have been asked before and therefore continue the cycle !?!

I agree Scott. Things seem a little slow. I still have plenty to learn though. I plan on asking plenty of questions and chiming in with responses to the questions of others as appropriate.

Cheers, Jeff

I think Sandra has got it right. It's the season to be out on the trail, not in front of your computer.

Also, most of the BPL staff is in SLC for ORSM right now. (I'll be joining them in a few hours.)

Perhaps you are right Mike. Trust me I would rather be on the trail. I am saving for the next six month vacation.

Yeah, we're stuck in SLC. But at least it's at the Candy Show!

Historically, July, and more so, August, see decreases in our forum traffic.

Hey Mike, where are you? You're supposed to be here ;)

You also might be seeing the pinch from people feeling they have less disposable income. Less to spend on diddlebugs and stuff, kinda of turning of the interest switch.
There is a perception in the bicycles industry around high end products that this might be the case.
