    Pointer #1 - do not write in colour, it is hard to read.

    Pointer #2 - I, is only ever written as a capital letter.

    Pointer #3 - It is best to do research before buying the product. You might find it's rubbish and now you already have it.

    Pointer #4 - Expect answers to be directly proportionate the the level of the question.

    Pointer #5 - Don't be so silly again.

    PS: Welcome to the forum. Feel free to ask questions, but only after checking the search function to make sure you are not asking a repeat question. (e.g What wheels, Is my average seed OK, Anything about Mavic). :lol:

    If that were the case then the most popular forums (usually COD ones) would be virtually dead. Its not only inevitable, but perfectly acceptable IMO for there to be several posts involving similar topics. Its only a problem when theres *****ing millions asking the same question over and over. Bottom line is that forums are for discussing things regardless of repetition. Im actually a moderator on another forum so I have a good idea of what is considered acceptable and what isnt. Just stop being so pedantic mate.

    As for the topic I know nothing about treks so cant advise.

    If the above is the quality of your average seed best you sow your best seed. Or speed off and let those with constructive advice or pointers contribute without the unnecessary bullying. :oops:

    @CMH15 - If you consider my post bullying I suggest you stop visiting now. I was giving constructive advice. The fact you do not think so or do not like the advice is entirely another matter.

    If you spend a little more time here you will see hundreds of posts where I offer very good advice. Perhaps when you have more than 2 posts we can judge your level. Until then I reserve judgement.

    Op - I have a Trek 1400 which I should of gotten rid of but I really love it - it will have basically the same frame as the 1000 but with a better groupset - mine has 105, the 1000 - Tiagra/Sora.

    Pain hurts much less if its topped off with beating your mates to top of a climb.

    Maybe so but your advice in this thread has just been sarcastic and not relevant to the questions asked. Why criticize his font colour ffs! I didnt find it hard to read so I could advise you get glasses or something, what goes around comes around mate. Next time just answer the questions properly even if you feel the questions are a load of censored . With that being said you likely wont.

    This colour would be hard to read

    Just type in Black ffs!

    And yes yellow is particularly unsuitable (although quite easy to read if you highlight it with the mouse).

    And I did answer his query I told him it is better to get advice before spending the money. Very relevant I think.

    So you told him to do something he is already doing? (or trying to by making this thread). That advice is of little to no use for anyone. So on that basis rather than tell him "it is better to get advice before spending the money", why not simply provide that advice yourself? I suppose your gonna be advising people to use bigger font next!
