BSNYC Thursday Fun Quiz #3! (Special Self-Promotional Edition)

Don't worry, it's only one question, and it's an easy one. Think carefully and click on your answer. If you're wrong, you'll see Pee Wee Herman dancing with Grace Jones. If you're right, you'll see the maillot jaune saluting his adoring fans:

The December issue of "Bicycling" features an interview with which acrononymous entity?

--NYPD

--BSNYC

--BLT

--NAMBLA

Yes, awhile back I mentioned that I have always dreamed of being published in "Bicycling." Well, that dream has finally come true, proving that the best way to get people's attention is to taunt and mock them. And not only am I interviewed in that esteemed publication, but there are also obfuscated photos of me and a bicycle belonging to me. This should provide a good opportunity for anybody I have mocked here to mock me back.

The December issue will be on the stands on October 30th, but subscribers should be getting theirs any day now, so if you're curious keep an eye out for it. Thanks everybody for reading, and thanks to "Bicycling" for the fun opportunity.

Good on you!

Into the lions' den. Did you taunt them. I hoped you taunted them.

Danimal said...

Are you serious? Why not just sell your name to oscar meyer and peddle that big hot dog around. You can't be serious. Are you serious? I'm confused. It's pure brilliance if this is farce. There I think I covered all my bases.

Polygraf said...

uh oh will celebrity ruin you? Damn 1988!

BikeSnobNYC said...

Danimal,

Yep, I'm serious. I'm confused, too. How is being interviewed in a magazine like selling my name to a hot dog company?

Really? Total bummer. But I'm not too cool to subscribe like polygraf, so I'll look forward to mocking the article when it gets to my apt.

Can it be long before Velocity begins running ads for their new metal flake Deep Vee stickers on your website, and you start running a contest to "Win this Ten Thousand Dollar Bike?"

For my part, I'll simply note your blogging was *much* better before you were famous. I hope you enjoy your celebrity hell with the likes of REM. After that, of course, drug rehab and a VH-1 Behind the Scenes special await, followed by your Comeback Blog, which the critics will love but which won't sell as well...

Don't forget the much-publicized crash on one of those Colnago Ferraris in the Hollywood Hills.

the only way this isn't terrible news is... no this is terrible news.

what breaks your heart more, knowing that you're walking down a path that can only end in a full time job reviewing carbon bottle cages, or knowing that so far like 60% of your blog's readership subscribes to Bicycling?

When you end up in rehab will you give Lindsay Lohan my number? I really do think she is cute.

I hope they ask you how to "Get fit in 40 days" or tips for "Killer Abs" or maybe "Nutrition Advice for Soma Valley Bike Tours"


Either way, I'm sure your interview will be "more insightful than Robert McNamara in a smoky room"

Anonymous said...

Congrats man! Sell-out or not it's an exciting opportunity and great to be recognized for your contribution to cycling (and helping me get through the day at work).

My only concern is that now it won't be as special to read your blog everyday and feel somehow elitist.

Now your readership is going to go through the roof, you'll get offers for sponsorship, end up selling purple anodized chains in banner adds. Microsoft will buy out your page, fire you, get some FG'er to take over the blog. Then I'll have to go back to working through the day. See, it is horrible afterall.

a picture? of you? what if people start to recognize you on the street as you commute to work? you might have to keep an eye out for aerospokes and top-tube pads, not to write about, but to run from. take some self-defense classes or, maybe, you could camouflage yourself with a large florescent messenger bag and a funny hat.

either way, they're going to be out to get you. your loyal and devoted fans that understand its all just in good fun will be there for you, but man, you crossed the line out of anonymity.

congrats, though, from me.

SeattleM&M said...

Doing a magazine interview is "selling out"? If so, I think the Snob is severely undervalued. Now, when BSNYC becomes a regular feature, that might be selling out (even if bike mag columnists really don't get Beverly Hills homes and party with "Hilton" and "Lohan"). But, it would also make me enjoy my subscription to Bicycling a lot more. Ironic that the Snob has aparently become a hipster icon -- and more ironic still that he shall now lose that status by becoming popular. Sweet, delicious irony.

I contend that your writing is enhanced by your use of substances banned from the blogosphere. When your B sample comes back positive, you'll need to write a book in order to raise the funds to support yourself until your blogging suspension ends.

We are all going to see your face during your book tour. Maybe you can "out" Style Man during a book signing. Do it in DC; it will be more scandelous that way.

Congrats BSNYC! Ingore the sellout comments. Selling Out? I didn't know props through a few lines and an obscured photo in the mainstream media came with a six-figure contract, ghost writers, a McD's Happy Meal toy deal, a special "BSNYC" edition Huffy on sale at Wal-Mart (exclusively), and a percentage of the front-end on Bicycling mag sales.

I remember Ginsberg defending NAMBLA, but was he a member? I don't think so. Can somebody check with the NSA on this? I think by now they've collected membership lists on every group in the country.

And PeeWee? He was polishing his handlebar in an adult theater, not playing with kids. I'd be more worried about people going into a porn theater who aren't there to beat off.

Just took a look at Drunkcyclist vs. storm grate. Lost in a revery, I emerge with this: storm grate = popularity/Bicycling magazine; bloody nuts = the once pristine, now sullied innocence of the hipster faithful; damaged wheel = broken, disposable hipster icon status. Etc.

So, do straight guys over thirty really "trim the brush"? In my humble estimation, you youngsters can be forgiven -- you're growing up in a different, weirdly sanitized world. Maybe I'll jump on the bandwagon, start lining my chamois with sandpaper, make things reeealll smooooth as I ride.

I have zero time for the next days and have a small window and little cash- has anyone come across Swift wheels? I was thinking about getting a set this weekend @ nycbikes bklyn for 240.00 w/ formula hubs, i thought I would have to spend just that on a rear but came across this set which no one seems to know about. I weigh 205 and I ride my fix like a mountain bike, don't yet have the finesse, if any one has some input on these I'd love to hear a few words.
Thanks

SeattleM&M said...

Clayton:

Well, at least joining "in defense of free speech" is arguably less nutty than joining for the usual reason. Course, now that "free speech" means two or three companies can make the mass media say anything they want, maybe the first is now nuttier.

Hope it's not true re: Pee Wee, or that there's more to the story.

Oh yeah, this is a bike blog. Did I mention that I own a set of Deep V's?

Clayton said...

steering the comment section of a bike blog into the direction of child porn and NAMBLA is an exercise in free speech.

but on the subject of bicycles, do you think gisnberg would ride aero's or deep v's? hmm? he was maybe one of the original brooklyn hipsters, after all.

Whatever Ginsberg would have ridden he most definitely would have used canti brakes. Because they "Howl."

Enhancement Smoker said...

"Reubens was arrested again in 2002 in connection with an investigation involving child pornography. Public news stories concerning his case cast doubt upon the suggestion that Reubens intentionally acquired child pornography, as he stated that he was a collector of "erotic artwork" and that he had a sizable collection of vintage erotica with samples dating back to the 18th century. On March 19, 2004, child pornography charges against him were dropped by Los Angeles City Attorney Rocky Delgadillo after Reubens pleaded guilty to a separate "misdemeanor obscenity" charge.

"The DA waited 364 days (one day before the statute of limitations would have run out) and then alleged that some of it was 'child pornography' -- decades-old physique poses, old art photos, and yellowed nudist magazines. Some of the nude photos were of minors -- when the pictures were taken, but most of the models would have been dead of old age before Reubens was born. All of the photos, Reubens maintained, were legal when they were first published. The charges were reduced to 'obscenity', and Reubens pleaded guilty and paid a US$100 fine in exchange for probation."[5]

That joke deserves to be the last word today! oops...

Well, since I'm here again, I'll speculate: Ginsberg would have ridden a Dutch bo.. I mean bike.

Last, a gem from today's Seattle craigslist: "I've got a great white Velocity Deep V wheel w/black formula hub and black spokes (front only). I am hoping to trade it to somebody who has a black front wheel (with black hub and black spokes). Maybe you want to add a cool front wheel to your fixed gear? I only want white in the back. Maybe you only want white up front? Lets trade!"

I have incontrovertible evidence that BSNYC is actually Bill Strickland of Emmaus, PA. BS = Bill Strickland. And Emmaus is only a few hours drive from Brooklyn. Who besides a magazine editor in the middle of Amish country would spend hours at fixedgeargallery to match those bikes up with random photos of celebrities? A magazine editor has the financial incentive to discourage urban hipsters buying low-priced used bikes -- if that ever truly takes off, there goes his advertising revenue. There's more, but men in suits and dark glasses are coming my way to...... #$#^cxcc CARRIER LOST

"like paparazzi on a princess."

Exactly. Welcome to the human race.


" gonna cause him to swerve into an oncomming recumbent at speed "

I hope not. Really.

Why did I say "likely married"? Because your left hand is partially obscured. If it is entirely random, that's one thing. But it is purposeful, it is because you are hiding your wedding ring. So I have a 50-50 chance with that one.

In any event; the photo of the brownstone lined street containing the dumpster and the double parked car is probably a good clue. You said that you are "well into" your commute at that point, but it is likely a diversionry tactic.

As is the "you lost the scent" comment. Clearly, that is a diversionary tactic.

Can someone deduce Snob's height based upon his body geometry relative to the bike he is on in the Bicycling mag photo?

Looking at the junction of his downtube, top tube, and head tube, I'd say he rides a frame size in the high 50's.

Come on, all you docs, med school students, phys therapists and medical examiners; how tall is the Snob?

And Snob?: welcome to celebrity.

leroy said...

Oh dear.

I have a lot in common profile-wise with Bike Snob.

While I'm happy to draft among the comments on BSNYC's blog, I shuddder to think of paparazzi photographing me climbing the Brooklyn Bridge in bike shorts as part of a mistaken effort to identify BSNYC.

Paparazzi stalkers awaiting BSNYC on the Broolyn Bridge: You have been warned.

Not every guy who fits Bike Snob's profile is Bike Snob and pictures of me in lycra almost certainly violate
some community's standards of decency.

Bike Snob -- Pssst... most of the construction on the Manhattan side of the Manhattan Bridge bike path was cleared up as of last night.

But now that I think of it....

You might be able to cash in on your new found celebrity by marketing jerseys reading "I am BSNYC."

It'd be an "I am Spartacus" kind of thing.

Just a thought.

meep said...

Rest assured - I'll be purchasing my copy from the generic used bookstore for ¢50.

Anonymous said...

Dear Encyclopedia Brown,

So you've figured out that BSNYC rides the same frame size as the majority of cycle racers. Brilliant! But what size person could possibly fit a 57ish cm frame? If only we had a scientist.

While the 'cleverly lying about his route' theory is probably accurate, you know what else would be a good diversionary tactic? Not documenting the start and end points of the commute.

Good call about the obscured hand implying a 50% chance of him being married. Also since you can't see his face, I'm going to assume that he's blind in one eye.

So everybody keep an eye out for an average height male rider on the Brooklyn Bridge who is prone to deception and sports an eye patch. And who definitely has a front brake.

Of course, someone as prone to deception as myself might not even have used his own bike for the photo. The bike--or indeed the person--could be a ringer. The mind boggles, then grows bored.

Anonymous said...

This is just a general comment after reading a generous sampling of your last couple of months worth of writings.

I think you are a damn good writer, and I sometimes catch myself laughing out loud at some of your thoughts.

Also, I certainly understand and agree with your obvious distaste for the posers of the bicycle world (or of any world, really).

But something else also comes through that I find disquieting and ultimately repelling. That is, by making yourself the arbiter of what is proper bicycle style (the kind of bike, the kind of clothes, the kind of event to partake in, etc.), you come across as just as much a poser as those you disdain.

So, goodbye and good luck.

Ben istanbuldan selda 22 yaşında konfeksiyon içşisiyim Amatör Porno sizleri bekletmeden hemen hikayeme geçiyorum.. Biz 5 katlı bir binanın en üst katında yaşıyorduk ve bir öğlen paydosunda sevgilim beni Anal Sikiş aradı evdeydim çünkü evle iş yerim arasında 2 dakika bile yoktu.. Bende Asyalı Porno sevgilime benden telefon beklemesini söyledikten sonra evin durumuna baktım evde kardeşlerim ve annemin Esmer Porno birkaçtane arkadaşı vardı bu iş imkansızdı tekrardan düşündüm ve çatı katı aklıma geldi sevgilime telefon açıp çatıya çıkmasını ve Fantazi Porno beni beklemesini söyledikten sonra telefonu bir süre elime almadım anneme işe gidiyorum dedikten sonra Gay Porno hemen üst kata çatıya çıkıp sevgilimin
dudaklarına yumuldum az bir süremiz Götten Sikiş vardı ve çok istiyordum onu hemen önünde diz çöküp sikini çıkardım kocaman olmuştu bile... Özlemişti beni HD Porno bitanem başladım sikini yalamaya kafasını öpüyor onu çıldırtıyordum sevgilim saçlarımdan tutmuş ağzımı keyifle sikerken çatı katının kapısı açıldı toparlanamadan Lezbiyen Porno komşunun şişman oğlu efecan gelmişti ben dizlerimin üzerinde sevgilimin Liseli Porno siki ağzımda yakalanmıştım hemen bu halimizi gören komşu oğlu Sarışın Sikiş kaçarcasına gitti.. Sevgilim bir süre güldükten Türbanlı Porno sonra bu şişko neden kaçtı korktu herhalde onu sikicem sandı galiba dedikten sonra bir kahkaha daha attı ben sevgilimin Türk Porno sikine deli gibi saldırıyor yalıyor emiyordum boşalmasını istiyor Zenci Porno sütünü içmek istiyordum sevgilim ağzımı sike sike boşaldı hepsini yuttum bir damlasını ziyan Porno etmedim ve sevgilimle vedalaşıp ayrıldık... Ben her defasında sikiş yapmadan önce yazporno diye olan türkçe siteden Porno izle bölümüne girip seyrediyorum azdıktan sonra şahane sikiş ile gözleri kamaştırıyorum.
