Thank you for your reply, but we should not forget that a forum provides you a platform to discuss items. The spirit and original idea of the forum is different and we do not want it to drift from that.
It is for shure understood that people want to discuss such stuff but Weight Weenies is not the right place for it.
Everytime I look at the road forum is it full of non WW stuff. It is more of a "bike tech/equipment- how to with weight focused components or bike porn." Not sure how many of these thread fit the "spirit and original idea of the forum." If you take a very strict view of the content here, you might as just blow up the forum and delete all of the popular threads and most of the content of the forum.
Wheelbuilding thread? Some WW stuff, mostly a bunch of folks trying their hand at buidling wheels.
Tubular repair? Not much WW stuff there
3t White Limited Edition? Less WW content than anything in the Pro Equipment thread. fashionweenies.com?
Is the RD FD really that bad? Maybe something WW here as the Red FD is lightweight. Bike Tech.
26.0mm Roady stems? Maybe, but poster just doesn't like they way 31.8 stems look. Perhaps better posted in fashionweenies.com?
Aerohead 20 spoke front wheel? Less spokes is WW, Aerohead rim not so much. Bike tech.
Final Fixing of Bar tape? Really? Bike tech how to, not WW.
Giant TCR Advanced SL in a bike box? Not a WW topic. Bike How to.
Defintion of a WW bike? okay, therorethcial perhaps.
Clincher Open Tubulars and 20 vs 23 help? Bike Tech.
Bianichi 2011? Some WW bolts on the bike. But really just bike porn.
I seems to me that the mods have become focused on the Pro Equipment thread as their source of frustration and are missing that the entire forum is full of posts on bike tech/equipment forum with lots of how to.
If most of the forum content is related to bike tech/equipment why would you delete the thread with the best examples of bike equipment that the professional riders use???
Your decision to delete the Pro Equipment thread seems ego driven, and just plain silly, to me.
