Is this because of the lack of MTBers? Or are we just not interested in this kind of stuff? VitalBMX & VitalMX is VERY alive. I think the vitalmtb community should be more alive imo.

VitalMX is the best forum.

Valid question.

There isn't a lack of MTBers on Vital MTB. It's actually the largest of all the Vital sites. Priorities are just a bit different for our users. We really do appreciate guys like yourself being active in the forum, however, so thank you!

Like bikes? Hit Vital up on Instagram, Facebook, and YouTube.

Because Pinkbike.


Seriously though I think it's just down to demographics. The guys who use Vital are probably a bit older and have less spare time than your average PB user. Personally I would rather be out riding than posting on forums. I come to Vital for the latest news, reviews and frankly awesome race coverage/photography. I kind of know my stuff and can read/make my own decisions so I rarely feel the need to ask for advice on the forums.

Certain threads get a lot of traffic, like racing rumours so it proves the community is there.

It's odd, I come to VitalMTB because I generally like the content of the site, and sometimes contribute to the forum.

I go to VitalMX almost entirely for the forum, and not for the content. Although, GuyB and the gang do an excellent job with content.

Vital is a great site prob my favourite for content but yeah the forum is a bit quiet.

At least its not full of noobs like the ones you get on Pinkbike and Ridemonkey which I find the worst forum on the net, I always have to question myself to why I even bother to go there and waste vital seconds of my life trying to find some decent posts amongst all the shit people post thinking that they're ate actually being funny by taking every forum post off topic.

If you guys have never used to http://www.rotorburn.com/forums/ here in Australia is a great forum most of the time depending on what your looking for.
