As far as the "fake" thing, I have found, as I'm sure others have, that some forum members will quote you out of context from other forums, and/or change things you said. I have several different user names for different forums. I should have used a different name and location for every singe forum. But on the other hand,I don't have anything to hide, and while many do not like my opinions, I am at least honest about it. If someone wants to take something I posted somewhere else and twist it around to have some kind of sick fun, there really isn't much you can do about it. If someone accuses you of something, and their information comes from another forum, I automatically assume it is fake unless there is actual proof. And that can be hard to do on the internet.
I won't spend more on a bike than I think it's worth, but if it's a good deal, I don't seem to have a problem buying bikes I don't need.
