Linky love...

Stevil Knevil over at How to Avoid the Bummer Life (HTATBL) recently listed the Bike Snob NYC as a must read and I have to admit that he was absolutely right! There are a lot of fixed gear posseurs who will read this stuff and wince in pain (I hope at least), but Bike Snob is some of the funniest bike-centric satire/ criticism I've ever read. Seriously, I laugh 'til I cry on a regular basis.

Speaking of funny-ass sh*t... HTATBL has tons of it too, so go give it a read.

Both of these two sites are well worth the read and I certainly hope you'll go do that... right now!

I do intend to finally update my blog roll links in the coming days/ weeks/ months. I probably read 50-60 different bike and marketing related blogs a day. Many of them have become like members of my family and I simply can't wait to go sniff around their kitchens and smell what's cookin'. So stay tuned.

reading bike snob NYC [i'm so f'n cool] gives me a headache, i hope when i grow up i am never as cool as he is.

at this point i am glad i see more people on the road riding bikes.

Masibestfriend,

If you think you have a headache from reading my site, just be thankful you're not me. I'd give anything to silence the voices in my head.

Anyway, it's all in good fun and I'm glad you took the time to visit. More bikes is always good--though I'm not sure how many are actually being ridden.

The link is much appreciated, Masiguy.

BSNYC
let me explain it a bit better, many years ago i was caught up in the righteous endeavor of trying to keep a 'scene pure, pure to it's roots. in the end all i got for my years of effort, was a headache, nothing really changed and i missed out on a lot of fun. there are those that do something for the love of it, and others that do it cause it is the latest cool thing. in the end, those doing it for the cool factor will come and go, wether we try or not. so love your 'scene and in a year open a beer and have a good laugh...
oh and go ride.

best advice I've taken all day -

You should also check out some of Steve's artwork. The guy is insane, his artwork is twisted, maybe that's why I like it...

Tim,

Although I long since stopped riding 150 miles a week, I still love the memories. Your posts help me relive the past.
