COME BACK TO GLOBAL!?!
« on: October 04, 2018, 09:20:50 AM »
Just discovered this fairly active bike check group:-kinder annoys me with FB domination leaving great sites like Globla in the quiet.

Shame, we need to get people back...

Might ask flatmatters if he will give us a nudge...

It used to be pedalbnx then everyone migrated to global , now it’s mainly insta, and that’s nearly all adverts, we need to return to the original forums!

Pretty much!  I gotta admit Insta has got me, as far getting that instant Flat fix. Although it Is becoming so so bloated,  to the point of where can it possibly go from here..?

Agreed. Miss this site. Fb things/groups tend to blur. This site was/is very knowledgeable
I'm like the brown LL Cool J.

It's been 1-1.5 years since I've deleted my facebook and my only complaint is that my video intake is suffering! Let's upload more to the flatland media section! I'll bust out the old camera as well

You need to check out flatmattersonline.com, if you haven't already. Excellent video site run by Effraim Catlow.

Good to see so many names from a time when I was a little more active on this site.
Global-Flat is here to stay! O0 
Remember, grammar is the difference between "I helped my uncle Jack off a horse", and "I helped my uncle jack off a horse".

I just started getting into flatland stuff about 3 days ago and suck so far, I blame my sh*tty bike and lack of practice.

^Ditto.
Totally relevent still, and has it strengths - especially with the bike related Q&A's etc.

Agreed!
This place has everything you need (flatland-wise). Parts archive, rider hookup, marketplace, etc.. The problem with Facebook, Instagram etc. is that you just can't find the infos you're looking for the way you can find them on here.
You have to scroll and dig thru tons of unnecessary stuff only to realize that what you're looking for isn't there. Or at least can't be found easily.

Here we have different categories, which makes it way easier. Plus, you'll be able to get the info even in the future (as long as no one delete his post, and as long as Global stays online).
And if you can't find what you're looking for, just post your question. It won't go unnoticed.

Global is like a big archive/encyclopedia.

Yes, it's sad that it's currently a little quiet around here, but that's life. Times change, people change. You have to accept that and move on.
Those of us with the fire in their hearts won't abandon a place like Global.

Remember, grammar is the difference between "I helped my uncle Jack off a horse", and "I helped my uncle jack off a horse".
