    There are opinions and then there is going on and on and on over the same issue once the official comment has been made.

    I'd suggest the banning of a premium account without an explanation would be a legally grey area considering no actual rules have been breached.

    I'n regards to the threads you have posted , again no rules were breached just one person's opinion on the shady goings on by a number of ppl affiliated/ running the site .

    As for what the owners want , I'd think it was a professional outfit where customer service is relevant to a prosperous business model, surely as a businessman yourself you would see that?

    But again I have to thank you for at least contributing to this even though you can't do anything about it.

    Of course the simple resolution would be for Dave to respond privately or publicly to actually provide the issue behind the muting of the account , once that happened the matter would be resolved as that's all that has been requested

    No they haven't, started out like that on the RAAM but the team is classed as all diabetic so they have racers with type 2 as well. Still bloody impressive if you ask me though

    Actually on Team Novo Nordisk the Pro Men's, Development, Junior and Women's teams are all type 1. So technically it is an all Type-1 PRO team, as the Type 2 team is separate. No racers in the pro team racing the UCI races like the Tour of Turkey are type 2.

    It would be great to see Dymag-T1D take off though - to have two top-level all-diabetic teams would be amazing!

  • Police caution one cyclist and seek two others in connection with violent road rage attacks on drivers1 year 2 weeks agoI think that many of us agree

    I think that many of us agree that you shouldn't go round thumping people, most of the time the people doing the thumping are a**holes. It can get you a criminal record and generally the person doing the thumping looks like an idiot for doing it.

    But that doesn't mean that some people don't deserve a punch in the face, and we understand why someone did it in this case. Revenge is sweet as they say.

    Justice should:
    Compensate the victim.
    Punish the criminal.
    Teach the criminal the error of their ways.
    Act as a deterrent.

    Our justice system clearly isn't doing that for cyclists right now.

    My Specialized one used to stick to my glove / hand up until the point it cracked and broke (much like everything specialized I've ever owned.) However, I have a Genuine Innovations Airchuck and it doesn't seem to suffer from this problem quite as much.

    If the Hammerhead is as good as the Airchuck it'll be a great piece of kit.

    Dan, I'm sorry. I have wanted to get back on, but, obviously, haven't been able to. I, whether you believe it or not, never intended to rile you up.

I love bouncing ideas around, really, and try (try!) to reason all the time, research my answers, choose my words, etc...

    Sometimes I'll have spent a good 15 minutes mulling over what I want to say before I write it. I felt pretty bad when you called me a troll. But I felt awful when you thought my idea was awful. I know I was simplistic, but I put a little thought into it! I'm sorry. I apologize. I miss the game. And I miss the forum. I want to come back. And just play. Just be around. No offense taken, no resentments. I just feel out of place without being able to play the game. Can we talk?... July 23, 2013

    For the last two years enrique has gone through cycles of being friendly and laid back only to ramp it up and be an incessant pain in the arse, he makes solid suggestions for minor changes to the game which are implemented then takes this as his chance to suggest huge overhauls of the game mechanics constantly. When these are refused for valid reasons hen then keeps suggesting them time after time for months on end.

    Last July enrique was given a time out for his behaviour which seemed to improve things hugely, I even got a nice apology email, that all seems a long time ago now.

    That's all well and good but as I said you simply jumped on him in ur previous post for no reason , he wasn't banging on about anything just taking some pride in the fact that one of his major gripes with the game had been implemented , he even acknowledged the fact you had shown him some recognition.
    I can't see how his post managed to get you so wound up, after all to quote yourself , you have spent time out from the forum because you didn't like the atmosphere,

    I'n this instance it is you creating the atmosphere and nobody else so only yourself to blame, surely Confused

    Ref getting an email from him , at least he was man enough to do that and for that he should be credited because it seems that is a step further than road.cc admin are willing to go to to try to resolve any issues

    Of course this is just my 2p worth
