Sigh. Is there nothing better?

I no longer care whether or not the sub-forum exists, if I ever did. Just want an end to all the peripheral silliness.

This is doubly confusing. Is this asking whether we want it to be a subforum of this subforum ow whether we want it to exist at all.. Currently it is a subform of the forum, not a subforum.

Also, I agree that there should be an "I don't care" choice.

Eight speed and my next restoration project - Quintanna Roo and, to be honest, I really don't like the bike but after getting it back three times, I figure I better build it up once and for all...

I don't have any bikes with indexed shifting, much less integrated shifters/brake levers aka 'Brifters'... so... like rhm - my vote is to Abstain from voting...

Are you sure this doesn't have something to do with the engineering principals of the Rover P6 I went to see today?

I'm confused! I have a frame that predates brifters but has been built with them,10 speed. Does it qualify?
should all the threads on the topic be moved from all other threads?

A NO vote is to keep it all right here where it belongs so we can continue to make the secret sauce that makes this C+V forum the best.

Not sure of anything but a NO vote keeps everything here as it should be, IMO.
