CRAP WIPE Vol. 1

Here’s some footage from our first WIPE, sponsored by CRAP and the Extreme Picnicking Society. We rode to McDowell Mountain Park on a Friday evening, ate a giant picnic and slept under the stars. The next WIPE is planned for the evening of Saturday October 18th, we’ll ride to Usery Mountain Park in East Mesa. It’s 23 miles one way.

The rest of the photos are here:

This will be my first post on the new trip we’re taking on this blog. Future posts will be mission reports from the exploits of the Extreme Picnicking Club. But this post is about bike porn from my day of laying around. The Japanese arm of Bianchi makes an entire line of small wheel road bikes. Maybe there are enough short Japanese people that they need to make tiny bikes? But take a look at this beauty:

Craziness. Some sort of victorian midget bike. And it has a big brother:

I have a crush on this bike. Found here.

Some highschool classmates made these stickers:

Give hipsters a brake.

And finally, I suffered in silence from the scourge of a numb package on long rides. Although I now know it can also be caused from stinging insects stinging you in your crotch while you ride, I figured it had something to do with my saddle. Two weeks ago I bought and installed a selle anatomica saddle. The thing rocks. I might have solved my problems with a cheaper saddle with a cutout, but the bike nerd factor wouldn’t have been there. You can even watch someone’s ass making one of saddles flex here.

Sturmey Archer, you weenies. All I can do is hope you listen to me and bring a 3-speed fixed rear hub for me this christmas. It would be so wonderfully uneccessary, underappreciated, and amazing. I’d buy five!

but NOOOOOOOO, you are going to bring out a high end road groupset that looks like carbon Dura Ace. Ever here of the Modolo Morphos shifters? No? Well no one buys them. And unless you’ve got the marketing dollars of SRAM behind you, we’ll see where your road group gets you. Assholes!

Fuck you, I’ll be busy doing wheelies on my fixie.

oh, its on brotha.

The moustache ride is a week from today. Come one, come all. Come sober, come intoxicated. Get worse. Get awesome.

…because this might happen:

…uh, yeah. Ok, maybe not exactly that. Yeah, um, nevermind.

Fixed and geared

Fun fact : A long long time ago, before we were born, Sturmey Archer produced a 3 speed fixed gear hub called the ASC. With the recent onslaught of “fixed gear fever” Sturmey and their parent company, Sunrace, are thinking of resurrecting and producing a new version! And I think that’s fucking awesome. I’d buy it. Bikes don’t need to be any more elegant. Gimme as many cables as possible.

And while were at it, I present you with the first sketches for the gang colors Los Bicicletas de Muerte!
