My favorite threads are the long running ones where smart people do their best to wrangle, still unanswered, questions about training methodologies; interval length, rest length, periodization, pro training, etc.
I like when someone goes against the grain and dares to question the herd. Right or wrong we learn better from those people than we do from nodding agreeable seals barking their approval of what everyone else already said 50 fucking times already.
I like the threads where people share their struggles in cycling and real life, makes me feel less alone and not dread life quite so much.
