City Bike on an old C’dale racing frame

I slapped this together for my daughter… it’s a small frame, but super maneuverable in traffic. And FAST.

105 derailleur, Suntour thumb shifter, RD100 brakes and crank, CrossTop levers, Weinmann rims on generic sealed bearing freewhell hubs, and a Brooks B17 saddle. Jamis moustache bars, wrapped with thick and springy black bar tape.

Bottom to top: 

  • Conspiracy Bryan Pennington with Indy IX 149’s & Kreper kingpins, Shitbird Grimeballs 57’s and RocknRon’s Rockets
  • Powell RoseBones with Orion 150s & Kreper kingpins, Powell Dragon 90a 56’s and Swiss Sixers
  • Comet Voodoo with Bigass Bennetts, wedged front with a SC Cruise Missile riser, Alligator 70mm 78a and Builtins
  • Arbor Pintail with Tracker Fulltrax, Alligator 62mm 79a and RocknRon’s Nuclear Rockets

Comments:

Conspiracy gets cruised around skateparks mostly. I love this thing, if you have one and want to let it go, please PM.

RoseBones is a fun sidewalk cruiser and ditch board. I just set it up last week, so not much mileage… but Orions are WAY better than Indys due to shorter wheelbase: gives it more pop and maneuverability.

Comet just got set up tonight.. but seems like it’ll be awesome. I live at the top of a 200′ drop gravel drive, so no where to test it.

Pintail with Trackers obviously does not turn… but that’s OK, because it is low and stable, great for the half-mile cruise from the parking spot to the office.

Time Keeps on Slippin’

Can we have Bender Burgers again? Ooh, name it after me! Shut up and get to the point! Oh yeah, good luck with that.

A Head in the Polls

What are their names? I usually try to keep my sadness pent up inside where it can fester quietly as a mental illness. Well, then good news! It’s a suppository.

  • Bender, this is Fry’s decision… and he made it wrong. So it’s time for us to interfere in his life.
  • You guys go on without me! I’m going to go… look for more stuff to steal!
  • Actually, that’s still true.

Bend Her

You’re going to do his laundry? I had more, but you go ahead. I wish! It’s a nickel. We’ll need to have a look inside you with this camera.

A Flight to Remember

How much did you make me? Man, I’m sore all over. I feel like I just went ten rounds with mighty Thor. What are you hacking off? Is it my torso?! ‘It is!’ My precious torso! Fatal. I haven’t felt much of anything since my guinea pig died.

  1. Man, I’m sore all over. I feel like I just went ten rounds with mighty Thor.
  2. I haven’t felt much of anything since my guinea pig died.
  3. Dear God, they’ll be killed on our doorstep! And there’s no trash pickup until January 3rd.
  4. What are their names?
The Deep South

Yes. You gave me a dollar and some candy. Are you crazy? I can’t swallow that. And remember, don’t do anything that affects anything, unless it turns out you were supposed to, in which case, for the love of God, don’t not do it!

this is why we fight

I’m not dead!

Well, what do you want? What do you mean? On second thoughts, let’s not go there. It is a silly place. Why do you think that she is a witch? The Lady of the Lake, her arm clad in the purest shimmering samite, held aloft Excalibur from the bosom of the water, signifying by divine providence that I, Arthur, was to carry Excalibur. That is why I am your king.

How do you know she is a witch?

The Lady of the Lake, her arm clad in the purest shimmering samite, held aloft Excalibur from the bosom of the water, signifying by divine providence that I, Arthur, was to carry Excalibur. That is why I am your king. What a strange person. On second thoughts, let’s not go there. It is a silly place. But you are dressed as one…

  • We shall say ‘Ni’ again to you, if you do not appease us.
  • Bring her forward!
  • Well, we did do the nose.
  • Knights of Ni, we are but simple travelers who seek the enchanter who lives beyond these woods.

Sets The Cinema Back 900 Years!

Why? Well, what do you want? Burn her! What a strange person. Well, she turned me into a newt.

Help, help, I’m being repressed!

We found them. Well, I got better. A newt?

  1. Well, we did do the nose.
  2. Bloody Peasant!
  3. Well, we did do the nose.
Bridgekeeper

Shut up! Bloody Peasant! And this isn’t my nose. This is a false one. Shh! Knights, I bid you welcome to your new home. Let us ride to Camelot! The swallow may fly south with the sun, and the house martin or the plover may seek warmer climes in winter, yet these are not strangers to our land.
