Versus: F-bomb, El Dope Penis, and more

Vaughters dropping the F-Bomb on Vs. live tour coverage today reminded of some other inappropriate things we’ve seen. Including

  • Various racers peeing off the bike – that’s a given, watch for it (or don’t)
  • El Dope Penis graffiti - In the Lance days, you could always spot a large, dripping phallic/syringe symbol on the mountain stages
  • Punching fans – I can’t remember who, but did see a racer stiff-arm a fan that got too close.

My all-time fav besides the Longhorn dude, is Borat from last year.

Honorable mention is “nervous Sheryl Crow,” while not really shocking, just the camera lingering on her was not something you see in every tour. Also, while I’ve tried, I still haven’t seen any girls flashing the peloton. I’m sure that has to happen at some point.

What’s the craziest thing you’ve seen or heard in the Tour coverage?

Pedal Powered Phone Calls

The modest success of our first Bike Blender Mobile Social, got DL and I thinking… What other pedal powered businesses could be out there? With a little web searching, and some help from our friends over at Surly, we found the following Nicaragua based pedal powered phone booth. Using an old computer, car battery, and common 3 wheeled cargo bike, this entrepreneur can charge the battery while pedaling to his prospective customers. Check out the video for a demonstration of this mobile call shop.

Have you run into any unique bike businesses here or abroad?

Mavic Shoes

More video from the Mavic Soft Goods Debut, including a discussion of their super-light shoes and new logo.

Red Rocket

This bike was like bluegrass music to me – I’d never buy it, not my thing, but certainly appreciated the artistry, craftsmanship, and style.


Spotted at the bike races this weekend.
