Naw dude..... SBN wasn't owned by cycle world. SBN was owned by Fred. It was hosted by TrickTape's hoster (I don't remember if Rez said who that was).

Anyway..... for some reason (two sides to the story) Fred and Trick Tapes Boss' had a falling out.... so SBN was removed from that server. People think that it's a Fred vs Rez thing.... but from reading both accounts, it's Fred vs a business, just one that Rez is a part of. It got ugly for a week or so.

So that's the skinny. Welcome to Cycle Forums :twofinger

Jump.......he didn't mean that it was owned by Cycle World....he meant that he heard while he was on Cycle World, that the owner of SBN, shut down the site, not like a hacked site or any other type of issue.

Basically he is right, but the reasons are not that important any longer, it's gone.

I noticed it was up this morning when I got an email notifying me of an post to a subscribed thread. I poked around a bit, but screw Fred and SB.N. The only way I'd be a patron to that site again is if Fred was 100% out of the picture. So long his name comes up when I WHOIS the domain, I won't be going there.


Besides, this place is WAY better than SB.N. This is mosdef my new home. :D

It's back up and running now...
Yes, but I doubt anyone really cares if SBN is up or down.

Between this new site and .ws, everyone has basically everything they want/need and more...

a gave that jackass Fred 100 bucks.
then he shuts site down, then up, then down, now it is back up, but w/o avatars.


FRED CAN GARGLE MY BALLS. fuck SBN

it is run by a schizophrenic

and I know the thread will be deleted because we don't want any Fred bashing in here, but I have been scrambling to post up race information on other sites due to the lack of SBN where we had a good information and tech pool for the bikes we race....

sorry...Fred is a tad to mental and cannot be relied upon

He posted som

Still up as far as I am concerned. Could you mean SBW for Robert stated (almost a week in advance) it would be down for the week-end while he upgraded it?

Good points...I don't remember anyone complaining while the site was up...I also didn't here anyone complain about how the site was FREE ...

I think all sites offer something positive and this site is no different...Which is why I choose to browse here...

We all gained something from SBN...Whether it be knowedge on bikes or where to hang out, or which bike to buy, etc, etc, etc...

Ironic to hear people bash something that was free...

I'll keep posting on all the boards because they're all pretty friggin cool and have some cool members...
