There have been women occasionally. They post rarely or just a few times.
A friend of mine was on here (she lives up in Berkeley, north of me) but was dissuaded because a few too many posts had sexist comments in them.

It is not sexist to say that the minds of men and women are very different. We think differently about the gear we use in cycling. Women just want good gear that works. They do not obsess that a certain crank is 75 grams less and generally considered to be stiffer. Years ago, I got into target shooting. I started to obsess about AR-15 bull barrels, match triggers, the works. My uncle, who had "been there, done that" gave me the best advice ever: "Just shoot it". I am still working on that lesson with cycling. I believe women in cycling are the best at "just shooting it".

There are likely more men here on behalf of women. :noidea:

Slowly but surely the sexism is starting to creep in. "It is not sexist to say that the minds of men and women are very different. We think differently about the gear we use in cycling. Women just want good gear that works" The minds of all of us are different, so it is sexist.

We are different. If that is sexist so be it.

Both my wife and particularly my daughter think the very act of going on a cyling forum is sad. I guess they've got a point.

A response to Arky. Yeah, but you are making clear cut judgements , and I can tell you that there are some woman out there who are just as techy as you and me, infact when I tuned my sram red I was in a womens shed using a womens dremel and tools and that the lady in question is very skilled and could give a few of us some tips.
It's to easy to put people in box. Like prendrefeu said, a few comments and the lady in question has left the sight and she could have been the one person to help someone out there solve an issue with there bike.
Thats how this sight works the best learning from the experiences of others and passing down that knowledge , be it man or women .
