    I'm so sick of posting something and no one responds to it, so rude. All these forums our like that i guess.

    This particular forum is not as well traveled as others of which I'm not allowed to mention here. But this forum is a nicer forum then the bigger ones, not so elitist or as rude. When you run with a crowd you're going to run into more problems. However since your not on one of the crowded forums answers can be a bit more delayed, so be patient, someone will answer you. Also a lot of the times the question you may have asked or are wanting to ask has already been answered so you can go to the search function and find the answer you seek. If you search the library and can't find the answer then you ask a question and it doesn't get answered simply wait about a week for an answer then re-post, otherwise the first post will get lost in a sea of new posts and get pushed out of sight. But there's no need to post 5 or 10 times the same post in one day, that will just piss off the regulars here and no one will respond to you because they'll think your a jerk.

    Sometimes by the way, maybe the question you seek doesn't have an answer due to the way it was asked or the nature of the question. And keep in mind too that most people work and getting on a forum and staying on it for 24 hours is not remotely possible, so people make time out of busy lives to be here and sometimes there just isn't enough time to answer a question right a way.

    Be patient.

    Sometimes no one has had experience with a particular bike or component or etc. and it is a slow time of year for cycling.

    The probability is high that the OP is jstrudman81. If you review his posts, they seem to follow the same, increasingly strident and trollish pattern. The screen names are laughably similar. Just like jstrudman81, he started a thread, and then about 2 hours later got pissy and responded to his own thread by whining about why no one had responded in those couple of hours.

    Now you're being rude, 4 articulate responses and you haven't even acknowledged them.

    Don't waste your time, Ambal. It's just a troll trying to stir things up.

    Actually it's not clever enough to be a troll, it's just a little junior troll wannabe trying to stir things up.
