    I dont care what it looks like, as long as they sort out the fookin adverts !!!!
    Science adjusts it’s beliefs based on what’s observed.
    Faith is the denial of observation so that Belief can be preserved

    Maybe the forum will get a new lick of paint?

    I'm all for advertising and often give companies and offers a click, but BikeRadar and CyclingNews take it way too far.

    Full screen adverts that appear over the page you're trying to look at and click on, give me a break.

    This is why people use ad-blockers.

    Looks reasonable but seems alot more review focused now rather than the mix of reviews and pro cycling news that was there before? It was a good balance before

    I remember the last update found that plenty of people on the forum don't actually use the website.

    Let's hope this revision encourages more lurking around other areas of BR.

    rapidly changing my mind... the adverts are even more intrusive :(

    I think it looks poor, typographically it's a bit of a mess, not just down to the choice of fonts, the sizing/leading and space just isn't right at all, looks like it's been designed a bit naively really. It's just quite poor.

    Quite like it... Although the forums haven't been updated

    No ads here ... Tum te tum

    I am hoping that both the forum (as it seems to be breaking a lot) and Bikely are next to get the upgraded treatment.

    I bet Jeff Jones doesn't looked as chilled sat at his desk right now as in that photo on the bottom of the new homepage!! :)

    Hope its all fixed before the forum traffic raises during Le Tour.

    BUMP

    There is still no login feature on the homepage.

    On another pc I was logged out of my BR account and when I clicked login on the forum page it took me back to the new homepage with no means of access.

    Clearing cache and cookies got me back to the old layout to get in.

    Anyone else had this?

    It's working well for me, and I quite like the layout. I'm all for simplistic, basic websites.
