how many of us there are. I know that I have looked several times and that would pad the total, but I now can't help but wonder how many of us there are.
Gregg if you read this how about giving us a number?
well, don't have the exact number .....gregg

...but we have, of course, a ton of stats throughout the site.

According to the latest figures I have, there were about 25,000 page views for all of our message boards yesterday. Unfortunately, it doesn't break down by individual board, but I know that General is the most popular board (followed by Components, Cyclo-cross, Racing, and Non-cycling Discussions).

So to answer your question, and something that we've always known; there is a large silent majority on our boards.

(I must admit that before I came to work for RoadbikeREVIEW and MtbREVIEW, I was one of those lurkers, too!)
Actually there is just you and gregg and Icritmass

I have what you would call multiple personalities and lots of email accounts. And way too much time on my hands.
I've suspected it's about four people with 50 names each...(nm).cory

well, let's say there's n of usET

and, as each posts his bio (one click), the other n-1 click to read it. Then there are n x n = 8444 of us. Solving for n gives around 92 people, not really so much. Of course, things are more complicated in real life: some people roll out of bed to find 50 bios already up, there are additional responses, some want to look at all those photos again, and, of course (the most rational explanation) Gregg's job is to sit there all day re-clicking on posts to pad the numbers for the advertisers. :-)
whoa, my head hurts. I was never good at math (nm)gregg
