I used to use newsgroups all the time. Now they are very hard to find. Does anyone know of any active newsgroups regarding e-bikes?

Thanks in advance... Bob

I was hoping for a dedicated group but I'll try there.

Usenet has declined enough and ebikes new enough that it's doubtful that
you'll find anything. New newsgroups are very rare, and on the occasion
that there's something compelling (such as with what happened with
Mozilla support groups a couple of years ago) are generally going to end
up in the alt.* hierarchy, because of the relative ease of creating
newsgroups there.

There's a measure of ebike in rec.bicycles.tech, but may not be what
you're looking for.

The reality is that you'll need to look elsewhere, and browser-based.
That would include things like reddit (where I think a lot of Usenet
people have migrated to), or of course, groups in Facebook and other
social media.

Yes, you sure are right. I miss the old newsgroups as there was always one to get a specific question answered.

I do, too.

With a newsreader, it's not difficult to filter out a lot of traffic
(even in a busy newsgroup) find traffic you're interested in, and ignore
the rest, without spending a lot of time doing it.

When I first got to Usenet was in the era when there was just one
rec.bicycles newsgroup, and that covered several hundred messages in a
day. I remember a lot of traffic of people appealing for "please split
the news group", and it seemed obvious that a lot of the appeals were
coming from people who were reviewing one message at a time. The
standard responses were either "learn to use your newsreader" and "there
is an established procedure for new newsgroups -- if you want to do a
split, make the necessary proposals in the proper place".

Ultimately, I think the decline of Usenet began with the advent of the
web, and then when ubiquity of broadband made graphical browsing much
easier to the masses, and where there wasn't as much learning curve
needed, even if the venues changed. And all of that long before
Facebook showed up.
