Default Mobile version

With the new website design coming today, I hope we finally get a mobile-friendly version of the site. As it is, CN is sadly one of the slowest to load and hardest to navigate on a mobile phone. Cycling Weekly and Velonews cater specifically for mobile users. It's not too late to catch up!

+1 to that. I often look up CN on my phone and it's very frustrating!

The current page works almost perfectly on my n97. But I would prefer a mobile version as well.

I rarely post on the forum anymore (somewhat of a lurker), but I check the website daily, often from my phone. While it currently works fine, I would like to see a cleaner mobile version that allows us to read articles and follow the live coverage of races without all the clutter of links, you know? Maybe the changes will be more mobile friendly without launching a new mobile version.

couldn't agree more. i for one definitely need a mobile version. CN is the best cycling site for me and my N95 gags when it comes to loading the full version...

Where is the link to the Forums on the mobile phone version of the website? I can't find it. "Sections" doesn't have it. It's a real pain as I have to click back to the Classic version to find the Forums.

Would it not have been simpler to just host a ForumRunner or Tapatalk version of the site, complete with forum link??

I emailed CyclingNews last week about the mobile website version having no link to the forum and have had no reply.

Tapatalk has been suggested a few times. You are as well going to the fridge and talking to cheese.
