Monkey See, Monkey Do

My girlfriend spotted this on Boingboing. It’s 1967 bicycle safety film called One Got Fat.

It has that weirdness that every Sixties-era public service film had and then some. You see, the kids who demonstrate every thing not to do on a bike are all wearing the freakiest monkey masks I have ever seen. It’s kinda effed up. I mean, I don’t like monkeys to begin with, and now they’re riding bikes on public streets. After watching this, I had this twisted dream involving Planet of the Apes and getting scolded by my elementary school principal.

Another Typical Seattle Commute

I ride 2 commute routes during a week, pretty much the same roads and the same times every day. I’m amazed at the daily differences. Take today for example: 1st real ride on the new gear ratio, nearly crushed by a bus, got smoked by a single-speeder on the Burke, witnessed seattle’s finest patrolling the path down near the U, and got to talk to a Paris-Brest-Paris veteran on the Bus on the way home. This list doesn’t include the amazing, fantastic sunset this evening. Ho-hum, just another wildly varied daily ride.

Hotspur and Oversize Titanium Tubing

For the Hotspur frame, Bill Davidson decided that to use the Feather Tech oversize titanium tubing. The key feature is the custom milling that Feather Tech employs to create external butting on very large diameter (for titanium) tubing.

Builders at the Handmade Bike Show

In our 3rd video from the Handmade Bike Show, we stop at the Dean booth, check a Roark S&S frame, see the JK special, and the BME C-Thru. We also talk with Bike Friday about the Tikit, custom carbon frames from RR Velo, and wondered what the robots were all about at the SRAM booth.
