Yeah... It's growin' on me a little. I put my first bike up in the Hybrids section.
I have two bikes that don't, in my view, fit into any of the categories. They are similar to spfldsuburban's Schwinn Suburban. In my case, I have a 1973 Schwinn Varsity that I made into a Tourist-style (upright bars, sprung seat) bike, and I also have a 1966 Raleigh DL-1 Tourist. Maybe the the comment thread here is "Tourist" (which is decidedly different than "Touring"). But even that is kind of too specific maybe. Perhaps a "Cruiser" section, a "Retro" section or a "Classic/Vintage" section might be a better spot for those than any current category.
I'm sorry you paid to post in there. I was already a bit disgusted with where they were going when they came up with that option. Asking members to pay for something that's free on other sites is just wrong. They could have given it free to members when they met a certain post count, or had been with the site for a length of time - reward those that stick around. Instead, they want to squeeze more money out of the very people that drive their ad revenue. And it failed terribly.
