In my experience, good bicycles are a very active niche market akin to headphones and keyboards. People try out new components, accessories, apparel and even new bikes constantly. And it's a market where tons of new innovations come out every year. There are a lot of competitor shopping websites but Massdrop should consider its edge.
Post your bike if you'd like to support the idea.

I personally would love to see a community based on furniture. Modern, country, diy, esc. Love modern furniture myself and always seem to be looking for pieces to buy like a desk for my computer or a dresser or a nice t.v. stand and so on. Wondering if anyone else would like that.
This would include items like; Compound bows, and their accessories such as sights, strings, arrow rests, arrows and arrow tips (Rifles and their accessories?). But other items such as knives , bags, binoculars and rangefinders to name a few!
I donno about the rest of you guys, but I really liked the vaping community.

I nominate the folks on DROP for helping me to keep sane during the chinese corona virus captivity...
Drop people deserve a peace prize! Enforced solitude doesn't bother me as much now that I'm getting (ahem) a little older. I still would be climbing the walls if it weren't for having correspondents, with friends and family yes, but I still get to talk to strangers here on the forum. Like-minded people who, while I haven't met them, I feel like I've made a few friends here. I've been to other places that weren't so friendly to newcomers (Head-Fi). I've been here for eleven months now, right when I got the HD-6XX. So I get to learn about photography, watches and of course, audiophile equipment. Oh yeah, zombiepocalypse preparedness too.
This leads me to say thanks, DROP'ers. Civility still matters! Everyone stay united though we're apart, ok?
Ever since Drop moved to the new layout, there's been some issues with community feedback and how it's reported to the parties involved -- and the primary theme among these issues are that community members aren't seeing all the likes and saves and replies that their content is actually generating from other users within the forum. The email notices we get that someone's liked or replied to a post, the likes and replies we see if we click on the alarm bell icon, and the likes and replies we see if we actually go to the page and bring them up -- more often than not, these numbers are at odds.
For example, if I click the bell I see this:
And yet when I go to that post I see six endorsements:
None of these are in my email, even though I've got all that checked in Settings for email:
I understand that you guys are going to work to do certain things in this forum, like help posts trend when they feature something bought from Drop, and to hide spam, and...
