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:

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.

3. “It was one of those slow motion crashes, I thought more people were going to run me over.”

4. “I could probably do this better if I wasn’t drunk already.”

5. “Get over to the side, you guys are breaking the law”

6. “That derailleur is definitely FUCKED”

7. “I reached down and poked him to see if he was alive”

8. “Find a rock that we can use as a hammer”

9. Various comments about 1980s toys, especially Ninja Turtles

Found while organizing my Flickr account

oh my god
I found this guy’s Flickr photostream while organizing my photos online. It is pages and pages of collected erotic fantasy art of dragons and fairies. I can’t tell what is his art and what is just collected from other sources. Does it matter?  Get your D&D hard on here.
