BSNYC Friday Fun Quiz!

Ah yes--what better way to spoil the Friday before a holiday weekend than with a pop quiz? As always, study the pictures as carefully as you can without gagging, read the choices, and click on your answer. If you're right, you'll be transported via the relevant link. If you're wrong, you'll find out what it's like to be eternally pursued by Michael J. Fox.

Good luck, and ride safe this weekend. See you Tuesday.






This picture depicts:

--Angelo Moore of Fishbone circa “Truth and Soul” and Phoebe Cates circa “Fast Times At Ridgemont High”

--The proprietors of LA's newest track bike boutique, "Fixatude," in Silverlake

--The "alleycats" look according to an online "one-stop lifestyle boutique"

--The "hipster bike" look according to an upscale department store


(Thanks to Joey of Venice, CA for the link)





The owner of this fixed-gear freestyler is selling his Hed 3s because:


--He's having financial problems


--He keeps rolling tubulars while skidding


--He's upgrading to Zipp discs


--He thinks purple Deep Vs would look "more tighter"






BMC has dropped its Team Elite 01 carbon hardtail from its range. What reason did they give?

--"Unfortunately BMC failed to convert exactly the claimed quality level of the prototypes into the serial production."

--"Despite our best efforts the Team Elite 01 hardtail did not deliver the performance and durability that customers should reasonably expect from a top-notch performance bicycle."

--"Our Taiwanese contrators were unable to realize the designs of our Swiss engineers in a manner that was cost-effective."

--"They kept breaking."




The good people at Fyxomatosis claim (incorrectly) that the rider on the right:

--Is attempting to convince the rider on the left to adopt brakes, bar tape, and a beard

--Is one of the fastest guys on two wheels in NYC

--Is discussing the finer points of jean-cuffing with the rider on the left

--Is in fact reclusive blogger Bike Snob NYC



What is the most likely inspiration for this bicycle?

--Craig Calfee's famous bamboo bikes

--Pandas

--Mr. Garrison's personal transport device

--A homemade bong project gone horribly awry

(Thanks to Jimmy of Brooklyn for the link)

gttim said...

Hey, be glad for the hipster style trend, otherwise the guy in the Mohawk isn't getting any modeling gigs.

Your picture appeared in Bicycling Magazine. It was pretty clear that you did not have long hair or a beard, if I remember correctly. You could have a 70's porn star 'stache, but I don't think you had long hair or a beard.

Anonymous said...

The person fyxomatosis claims to be the elusive BikeSnob may not be the man. A while back BikeSnob felt that Shimano made better components than Campy and this guy is riding Campy.

leroy said...

I only got one right. I didn't think BSNYC would be riding in NYC without a helmet.

Other than than, I wasn't even close on any of the others.

That may be a good thing.

Have a good weekend all.

Looks like generic aero levers to me, on a ss/fixed. No real sign of derailleurs or a low hanging chain. We need another identifying tool.

openyoureyes said...

I don't believe this to be the Christ. Jim, as the ecumenical authority on the blog please let us know if Jesus would:

1. need sunglasses?
2. wear sunglasses as a fashion statement?
3. ride one of those girls bikes with the sloping top tube that roadies like so much?
4. not be in his "wheels of thunder" team gear?

As I think Jim will verify, this picture is, in fact, not Jesus. It is then safe to assume it is Snobby.

I don't think riding with or without a helmet would define BikeSnob. My guess is he would be just as confident without a helmet as he would be with a helmet. BikeSnob grew up in the era of riding BMX catching Big Air, doing wild 2 foot high bunnyhops, and high speed kickouts to knock hubcaps off cars. All this was done without helmets

It didn't say, it showed a picture! With his face down. He did not appear to have long hair or a beard. Again, that is from the picture. Bicycling Magazine didn't say anything about him rocking long hair, a beard or a 70's porn 'stache.

Anytime you can reference Mr. Garrison is pure delight.

I like people who do creative and original things. The plywood bike the other day was cool. The Calfee copy, neither original or cool. If they had shredded a copy of the I CHING then made a bike from the resin soaked paper, that would've been cool. See, I out created them in my head w/o even trying, HA!

And I know who the mystery rider is...

wwjensd said...

Probably not snobby.... His pic in Bicycling had him on stache bars, so either it is a geared campy\sram bike, or a fixed gear\single speed with levers and drop bars. Since we all obsess over all clues to his identity, we know that bsnyc has a fixed gear, a cross bike, a mountain bike and a racing bike.

not to get all hero-worshippy here or anything, but the BM spread didn't make any claims as to the identity of the person in the pics. If it were me I would have ridden the wave--done the whole thing by email and have them dress a staffer randomly for the photos. It's just more fun that way.

Next time you see me rolling by slowly, sweaty and out of breath, stop and say hey. I'd love to meet you.

Jim said...

OpenYourEyes - Jesus is Just Alright With Me, as the wise man once said. I assume that isn't Him, because I believe He rides Colnago. I have to assume this is so because pretty much everybody I know who rides a C-50 thinks he's God, and I figure that one of them is probably right, kinda like how all the crazy people thought they were Napoleon, and sure as shit, one guy was Napoleon and wreaked havoc all over Europe. I'm telling you, Wellington should have believed him at the outset.

Anyhow, I sure hope that my coach isn't God, in spite of riding a C-50, 'cuz if he is he'll know I skipped a couple intervals last night to go drinking, and I'll probably get sent to hell for that, or at least have to do 'decreasing rest' VO2 intervals next week, which is pretty much the same thing in a lot of respects, except I'm betting that nobody makes you vomit at 6:00 AM on a lonely road in hell.

anonymous 1:54 said...

that's right prolly, when you give up bikes in a year or so in favor of the next hot trend you can show off your bareknuckle or whatever to your nieces and nephews and you'll be just the coolest uncle ever. and then, with the superiority that is your trademark, you can explain how uncle john rides a segway now because "my boy told me that shit was dope, yo." and then they will laugh at you and you won't get why and you'll nearly be thirty, and your young girlfriend will leave you alone, crumbs in your half-assed beard, crying into your light beer. "oh," you will say, "oh, where are my boys? who will buy me a celebratory pbr when i foolishly buy a component i have no real use for?" so make the most of it, john prolly, for your time is short.

Hey stalker, I used to ride Mountain Bikes and road bikes before moving here close to 4 years ago. I also surf and skateboard. I'll always ride a bike, whether or not it's a Concept or a BMW Gangsta, or a roadie, I'll always have a nice hard saddle between my legs and I've always been like that.

BikeSnobNYC said...

Gator Joe,

I realize this will make me sound extremely self-conscious, but I don't have any gray hair. So that means one of the following:

--It's the lighting in the "Bicycling" photograph (the same lighting that makes those silver rims look white and from which I'm averting my eyes);

--It's some other distinguished-looking gentleman in the photo and not me;

or

--I've since started using "Just For Men" hair dye (even in my flaxen beard, if you subscribe to the theory that the Cycling Jesus above is me).

Wow, now even I'm confused...

Things to do in a comment section of a blog.

1. Say random things like 'woogie, woogie'.

2. Tell people to vote for certain candidates.

3. Take over peoples nicknames and post using them (my personal favorite)

4 write a comment that will fire up certain bloggers just for the fun of it.

ltc tim said...

1:54 Anon Stalker (although to call you a real stalker gives you too much credit).

I know giving an insecure person such as yourself any attention is like giving candy to a child, but I feel compelled to say it. WTF is your problem? Are you really that much of a "man" that you harass people in the comments section of a blog? I mean how pathetic is that?

Projecting your own phobias and insecurities on another, especially as an "anonymous" identity speaks more to your own failures and shortcomings than your so-called target. You will never come out in public because deep in your darkest nights, lying in home in bed alone, you know that you are a weak and hateful little person.

Lashing out with your false machismo is much akin to standing behind your big brother, nyah, nyah! So why don't you crawl back under whatever rock you came from.

And no, I don't know Prolly and he does'nt need my help. You're just annoying gutter trash.

You really need psychological help.

Chiming in late... I enjoy being teased by BSNY and his identity, I echo the theory that the photo in Bicycle was a stand in rider and bike and the bearded fellow was a bad lead that he's helping propagate.

Props to Prolly, having recently jumped on the fix craze to speed up my commute, I learned how to skid watching him and his "boys" under The Brooklyn Bridge early fall, since i have no friends and ride solo the experience was enlightening, seriously.

sprider said...

And so it goes and so it goes, the real reason we read is because we ride. WTF is up with all the extraneous BS? I don't care if Prolly is fat, although I was Prollied, so he 'prolly' is. Get out and get on your bike, and stop posting every hour. Mr. King, (Rodney), asked, "Can't we all just get along?" Fixed, road, cross, or MTB, ride what the weather dictates. BSNYC, keep your finger on the pulse. Myself, I'm fixin' to get ready for a recreational, sub-zero breakfast ride in the morning. Layers, layers, and more layers, and I'm not talking chickens.

Hey guys. The bamboo bike was mine, and I'm honored to be made fun of on this blog. A couple things:
The bike has a seat and the steerer cut now. The bike is left side drive because after we built the bike, we realized that the left side was a bit thicker than the right, and according to our analysis the drive side needs to be a bit stronger.....and it looks cool.

As far as originality, we know it has been done before, but I don't think that necessarily makes it bad. Plenty of people use the same methods to build bikes, but I wouldn't say that makes them uncreative.

We think it's cool and it's definitely a fun and responsive bike. In the end, its a smooth, stiff, good looking (in our opinion), sub 3lb frame. It makes riding more fun, and isn't that what matters anyway.

StickyHands said...

First post, and I may be wrong, but I do remember a photo series done by The Snob, and in it he mentions a certain GREEN reflection on a car in the foreground, I would assume that he was referring to himself and his commuter.

To actually make my point, I think Snob's bike is green and therefore the bearded fellow on the bike is not him.

He also seems like the type of person who would only replace a frame if it was mangled in some ugly wreck. So he'd still be riding that same green bike.

Again, I could very well be wrong.

dennis said...

Snob, great blog as always! The comment side of this is over the top funny. Reading later after most "regulars" have posted makes my day. I suck at the quiz, but I did get the photo question right, no helmet and pants rolled up, that was easy... just saying.

ummm... "man" was in quotation marks. try reading instead of formulating a reply in your angry little head first. knowing that you are a "woman" (see quotation marks) is TMI. BTW, you may be a female, but you certainly are no woman.

Am I obsessive? You bet, its kept me alive with all my important parts these many years. Obsessed with you? Not likely. You hilighted yourself immediately with your venom and hatred. It must be an awful way to go through life. Sad...

Now I'm going to drag my "middle aged (another assumption)ass out to ride along the beaches of the north shore of Oahu. After that I'm going surfing. These are my obsessions.

...the superman thing is scary cuz the snobster has managed to do a great job so far, w/out getting a swelled head or a big 'S' on his chest...but like drugs, you don't wanna encourage him to start...
...plus that cape thingy could get caught in his spokes & we don't wanna see the bikesnob take a tumble...

...ride & post safely & freely...

I coulda sworn the "alleycat look" picture was taken from Manequin 3: The Messengers.

The male model looks a lot like Meshach Taylor and I'm pretty sure the female model scalped Kim Cattrall.

Would be a great movie, a gay guy befriends a female manequin brought to life. Just think of the hijinks that would ensue when the manequin takes a job as a messenger in NYC.

Boring? Boring!?

Hmmmph, we were going to invite you to watch the Congressional Page Yahtze tournament with us on C-SPAN, but you just trash talked your way out of that, Missy.

And if you want to pretend to be a woman, that's cool.

Who are we to judge?

What in the name of all that is holy and good in the world could possibly inspire the creation of such an attack on my senses and on good taste? That's not just horrible, not just wrong, it's completely unnatural. It's like looking at infinity and trying to wrap your mind around it. Mommy, it hurts... make it stop!

been refreshing my screen for 4 hours straight, need the win today but nothing.

Would make sense cause today is MLK day and only a city or state worker would be able to get away a second job like this and still be a top performer in both.

Yeah. Snob, c'mon. You've got a degree in English. But to pay the bills you've got some admin. job at the NYC DOT? Thought about a MFA? Did writing workshops and just checked out the girls? I'm building a mental image here.

"bucket list" is the new "to do list"

will we see a resurgence of "Anon 1:54"? Fodder makes easy writing you know. Bring it and don't bring it weak dude ...errrr...whatever.

Leroy, I couldn't make it, as as cataloging and sorting my spoke collection.

Set your RSS feed which judging from the comments, seems like tracking Santa on NORAD.

G'nite! Please, try the veal. You've been great.

Is it OK for Americans to use the word "wanker"? I saw that someone using "cheers" to sign off was vilified quite harshly and I'm wondering if I should hate this guy? I feel sorry for Prolly especially as he's being beaten up by a girl. Try and touch her breasts, that usually stops them.
