Hi all WW's.

I'm looking at compiling a list on the first page of this thread for essential threads that should be made more easily locatable within WW's.

It's to stop a lot of duplicate threads, not because I have a perverse joy in merging threads but rather having a heap of great info in the one thread makes WW a much better resource for all.


Would be great to hear your suggestions on what I should pop on here. I've started below (to give you the idea)


Road forum index

- Shimano Dura Ace 9000 thread

- Shimano 11sp (Dura Ace 9000) wheel compatibility

- Running Campag 11sp cassette on Shimano 11sp

I think what would be fantastic would to be have one thread dedicated to 'Cheap Chinese Frames' because I think there are lots of people are doing this sort of thing and instead of people shooting others down and sending them on a witch hunt for other threads, I think it would be excellent to have it all in one place.
