  • Replied in Heavy customer
    I had a customer who weighed 380 and decided he was going to lose the weight by commuting to work. He lived in San Francisco and worked in Palo Alto, a 42 mile trip via Skyline. He did it for four ...
  • What's your favorite Asian beer? I love Japanese beer, especially Kirin. So good on a hot day after a long bicycle ride!
  • Give the guy some credit for trying to lose a few lbs. Cycling is a fun and healthy way to do it.
  • Replied in Specialized
    Mike Sinyard, the founder and still the owner of Specialized, used to sleep in the back of my shop when he'd make trips to San Francisco in the beginning. Back before he could afford hotels.  I ...
  • I've never been there but at the dawn of human civilization half of my ancestors were in Scotland. The rest were in southern Germany.
  • I have a lot of really nice Assos clothing but these days I don't wear it much. The main reason is mosquitos are a real problem in Alaska in the summer. So I cover up. In theory the bugs can't ...
  • Replied in Too many bikes
    I owned a bike shop in the 80s. Four of the bikes come from that time. All four are Ritchey mountain bikes, which I love. I've never been a fan of modern stuff. A good friend of mine was the main ...
  • Replied in Prisoners
    The issue of the large prison population is a tough one. Innocent people are seldom locked up. So the question is why do we have so many people incarcerated? The drug problem is one reason but I ...

  • Replied in Very cool
    Hope the excavator operators are sober!
  • The reason to ride a bike is because it's fun and healthy. All the political leanings are the product of mindless journalism. I got 14 bikes in the garageā€¦.way too many. But they accumulate over time.
  • I know that number is what certain elements of the governing junta are planning, but I doubt we'll ever see it. I suspect the disadvantaged minorities will start migrating to Canada, since it's ...
  • Keep in mind that of the welfare dollar 78% goes to overheadā€¦.the recipient like this woman gets 22 cents. America is full of people like this. I think a slow repatriation to Africa would be a ...
  • Replied in Give me a break
    I lived in serious gang territory in California and never heard anything so goofy
  • Spring is about five months away. You can ask any moose
  • I know petroleum engineers in their 20s working on Alaska's North Slope who make $150,000 a year. And they work 2 weeks on and 2 weeks off. A laborer on the slope makes more money than an English ...
  • Replied in Thanks!
    Fighting in Gornji Vakuf, Bosnia. I'm the photographer in the shorts. Not sure why this video popped up. I don't even remember somebody shooting video at the time. Croats vs Bosnian Muslims. The ...
  • It's called not acting white. Learning to read is acting white.
  • I got all sorts of possible solutions, hoping somebody knows a simple way.
