Sears Bike

When I spotted this Sears Bike, it wasn’t exactly the one, but close to what I rode as a kid. My parents ordered it for me from the catalog, it had 3 speeds, was brown, and I rode it everywhere during my Evel Knievel phase.

Too Drunk to Shift

“Too drunk to shift” was recently heard as an excuse for not winning a sprint, which was hilarious at the time, and rather accurate. That excuse is right up there with “my clothes were still wet” for missing a team ride, “being boxed in” for getting pipped in the sprint, and “air pressure was low” for not taking a big, fast pull or the classic

“Eamon adjusted my brakes into my tire”

I admit one time to having my girlfriend at the time (later my wife) call the team leader to say I wasn’t going to be there (that resulted in weeks of ridicule) … what’s your best ride excuse? Either that you’ve heard or used.

I Can’t Make this Stuff Up: Patrick McHenry and the Energy Bill

Since every other blog in the universe has posted on it, I thought I should as well. Maybe I’ll take a different tack than others.

Anything pertaining to cycling lifestyle is of interest around here and we, like other cyclists, took umbrage last week as this video circulated. McHenry’s speech is ugly and insulting, but it’s also incredibly lame and that’s what offended me most deeply. When a motorist runs down a cyclist because “bikes are stupid,” he may be using violence in place of argument, but at least there’s violence. McHenry’s got nothing. Bear with me while I expound.

First, let us take note of Rep. McHenry’s intellectual method of critiquing the Democrats’ provision in the energy bill.

Ti Commuter

A Ti commuter by Von Nicholas – a brown fork that matches the decals and the bracket to mount the tail light to the rack also attaches the fender so there is no need for the stays to hold the fender in place.
