I’m looking over bike related sites and one that I was visiting mentions the above blog. So, I hopped over to it to see what it was all about. Well, it’s brutaly honest and funny as hell. It’s a well written, slightly cynical, look at the absurdities in the cycling world. You should go in with a sense of humor and not take it too seriously.
Even the author says so:“While I love cycling and embrace it in all its forms, I’m also extremely critical. So I present to you my venting for your amusement and betterment. No offense meant to the critiqued. Always keep riding!”
Below is an excerpt from the blog entry:
“I’m already seeing plenty of 20-somethings riding 20-inch-wheeled BMXs around the trendier neighborhoods, spun out at 7 miles per hour and kneeing themselves in the chins with each pedal stroke. But is this the new black?”
Pros: Relatively inexpensive, single-speed, complements the skater/urban aesthetic, completely ill-suited for commuting and urban transportation outside of a two-mile radius
Cons: The embarassment when some 16-year old shows you up in front of your girlfriend
