No doubt this bike stack exchange is extremely useful for many types of questions and answers.
But I think it is also heavily skewed in perspective against many people who are interested in "quality", casual, rural bike riding and touring remote from metropolitan areas. I put "quality" in quotes because many people think that means expensive, and that is not what I mean. Maybe "intelligent" would be a better word in place of "quality".
Anyway, metropolitan areas very definitely have their own special problems about bike riding, and, moreover, I would guess that most bike riders are denizens of metropolitan areas. So it seems very likely that those facts tend strongly to do an awful lot of skewing on this stack exchange away from the above-described casual, rural bike riding.
I am new to this site, but I have gotten the impression that the highly specialized fanaticism of professional bike riding may also be a factor in the skewing.
So I am wondering if there can be a stack exchange for casual, rural bike riding and remote, perhaps solitary, touring free of the fanaticism of professional bike riders.
That describes the intent. Of course, users of each type of stack exchange may find the other type of stack exchange to be useful. And maybe there are some professional bike riders who don't think that every human interaction has to be a zero-sum game devoid of win-win outcomes. So I don't mean to denigrate professional bike riders generally or even specifically.
But I am wondering it is possible to avoid being steamrolled by hard-nosed city slickers and professional bike riders who generally have very different interests.
It is my impression that voting is likely based on whether a person likes the question or does not like the question, and such things are extremely subjective. Voting may also be based on what the voter thinks his/her buddies and associates will like or not like and what the current "buzz" is among biking enthusiasts, especially those in metropolitan areas. So based on sociological network theory about friends and associates in metropolitan areas, this seems to be an extremely strong reason for creating a separate stack exchange for rural, casual bike riding.
But try telling that to a lion who thinks you are a delicious-looking snack.
I tried "alternate-stack-exchange" "rural" and "casual" for tags, but the system does not like them.
