Wired on Bikes

With an articled titled, Bike Hackers, Wired shows some “whimsical” bikes including a cart bike. No mention of Bike Mowers.

Dahon Meets Bike Hugger

The dudes from Dahon (duh-hawn, not DAY-hawn) just before our ride.

Does Your Messenger Bag Ever get the “Not so Fresh” feeling?

A package of Stride will freshen your bag for an entire trip overseas. Not only is the flavor long lasting, but so is the wintergreen scent.

Critical Man-nerds ride report

Man_NerdAs promised four intrepid BikeHuggers rode last Friday evening. Objectives: Ride for fun, Promote urban cycling awareness for all vehicles – cars and cyclists, demonstrate automobile/bicycle co-existence, and engage in the consumption of nutritious fermented beverages.

Good news: Objectives MET. Even more amazing, it was more than just two dudes who showed up! This is positively stunning given the 8 hour notice. Check the Bike Hugger Urban Bikes group on Flickr for more photos.

We’ll keep the experiment up, check back for scheduling of future rides. But before we go too far, we’ll need a better name. Hugger input requested!

This is not Starbucks

From 15 feet away and more this looked like Starbucks, but no, it wasn’t. Not even close. I travel with my own coffee, and Senor Muggy, but when needed I’ve found that Starbucks works. Zeldman told me that once. He said Starbucks was a trusted, known source, of mediocre coffee – consistently mediocre. I was like whatever, but that’s totally true in Taiwan. While the Taiwanese do buffets right, corporate coffee is bad just like everywhere else.

In Taipei, they also have a thing for outlets with funny names.

Update

A comment and revised sentence above clarifying that Taipei’s corporate-chain coffee was bad, just like anywhere else (v. Starbucks that’s mediocre everywhere).

We did have good coffee in a stand during our ride.
