As a kid I imagined riding an ostrich like the “Swiss Family Robinson.” However, this isn’t exactly what I had in mind. Selle Anotomica has developed a saddle made of ostrich leather in some really wild colors. I don’t know how this material choice is meant to benefit the rider, other than looking really cool parked outside your favorite watering hole.
Anyone ride this saddle, or have thoughts on Selle Anotomica?
There’s something deeply satisfying about having just the right tool for a job. I know people who rejoice in fixing a bike with a visegrip, but that usually means mangling the parts. Disgusting. I mean, would you go to a doctor who said he would diagnose your brain tumor with a thermometer and operate on your frontal lobe with the Leatherman he always keeps in his back pocket? I didn’t think so…
From the Stick Figures in Peril pool on Flickr, comes this subset of photos, including this one that I think says
- “don’t ride eyeballs across crosswalks”
- “make sure your quick releases are attached”
- “no wheelies!”
If you look hard enough, the sign also sort of resembles monopoly man.
