Title: COME BACK TO GLOBAL!?!
Post by: Flatism® on October 04, 2018, 09:20:50 AM
Just discovered this fairly active bike check group:-kinder annoys me with FB domination leaving great sites like Globla in the quiet.

It used to be pedalbnx then everyone migrated to global , now it’s mainly insta, and that’s nearly all adverts, we need to return to the original forums!

The question is, would Effraim and Martin be willing to share the stage together...

Pretty much!  I gotta admit Insta has got me, as far getting that instant Flat fix. Although it Is becoming so so bloated,  to the point of where can it possibly go from here..?

Agreed. Miss this site. Fb things/groups tend to blur. This site was/is very knowledgeable

It's been 1-1.5 years since I've deleted my facebook and my only complaint is that my video intake is suffering! Let's upload more to the flatland media section! I'll bust out the old camera as well

You need to check out flatmattersonline.com, if you haven't already. Excellent video site run by Effraim Catlow.

Agreed!
This place has everything you need (flatland-wise). Parts archive, rider hookup, marketplace, etc.. The problem with Facebook, Instagram etc. is that you just can't find the infos you're looking for the way you can find them on here.
You have to scroll and dig thru tons of unnecessary stuff only to realize that what you're looking for isn't there. Or at least can't be found easily.

Here we have different categories, which makes it way easier. Plus, you'll be able to get the info even in the future (as long as no one delete his post, and as long as Global stays online).
And if you can't find what you're looking for, just post your question. It won't go unnoticed.

Global is like a big archive/encyclopedia.

Yes, it's sad that it's currently a little quiet around here, but that's life. Times change, people change. You have to accept that and move on.
Those of us with the fire in their hearts won't abandon a place like Global.

It is all cool in here now and hope it stays that way.
Flatmatters is one of my favs to see updated news,videos
etc and I have been putting up as much stuff too in photos,
videos and such on my FACEBOOK  page.


I am currently working like 40 plus hours a week because
I am part of the essential group that needs to stay open during
this times of the virus.So my hours to work,ride a few hours and
the rest is going online for a few hours and then sleep is basically
all in do now!The facts that I work 6 days a week is hard also..but
I come on here as much as I can and plus my facebook page and
art page on DeviantArt.com and of course riding when it is not raining
like right now! arggggh!
