campyguy said:terrible changes. too hard to find the latest overall news summary. results pages are long with lots of wastful space. live updates are in huge type and poorly presented.
a bloated version of USA Today when it used to be the New York Times for cycling.
Suggest you up the dosage until the knot in your brain relaxes a bit - it's just a web site.TreeFiddy said:it's horrible...it is very delayed loading and moving around to the horrible new layout. Nobody layed it out there like the old site. This site makes me sad, but I don't know where else to go. Nothing is good. The old site was perfect. I will continue to look for other sites until you mother f.u.ckers die...there, I said it.
hayleyy said:i havnt seen the old site but the navigation is shocking, and the home page isnt that good looking either... and when you scroll it looks like things are put there because they can be put there. no order at all. I'd have liked to see the old site to compare it....

manolo said:I can imagine a couple of scenarios. I have to admit the first time I visited the old site, many, many years ago, 2003, maybe? I was overwhelmed by it. I thought "How can they cram so much information on one page?" But I grew to love it. Man. it was cool!
Anyways, here's a reader who never saw the old site! Wow! It makes me wonder how they'll like the old site. I'd be happy to hear feedback about the old site! : ) Heh heh! myabe it's far worse than I thought to someone who never saw it before! By the way, out of curiousity I'd ask how long you (hayleyy) have been visiting this site and where you've been getting your cycling news before this...
hayleyy said:i find the website pretty good... informative.. [but] the layout and navigation [are] horrible
manolo said:I still don't like the new site half as much as I ever did the old. There is nothing - nothing at all - I prefer from the new site than the old. Not one single thing... Well, I guess I'll just have to live with it and remember the old site fondly.
manolo said:""Back, by popular demand, we give you, the old website!". [But] I'm delusional... I'm bitter, I know... But, yeah, I wish this "purple" madness, all the Flash ads, all the small photos, all the crazy navigation, all the crammed pages with all the "crunched-up-to-one-side" text, the carrousel and the pages with "News Headlines" next to "News Editions" would stop.(
