BSNYC Friday Fun Quiz: Special Palate-Cleansing Edition



Wow, what a week! There was excitement, there was controversy, there was anger, and then, yesterday, there was treacle. I actually feel hung over from it all. (And it has nothing to do with all the drinks I had last night either.) Well, one of the best ways to shake a hangover is to go for a hard ride, and one of the best ways to clear your head is with a little mental exercise. So I've prepared a quiz. Read the question, think, and click on your answer. If you're right, you'll see the item. If you're wrong, you'll get hit with a blast from the Slayer siren. Thanks, good luck, and have a good weekend.

--RTMS


Whose autograph did BSNYC/RTMS get in Harlem this past Sunday?

--Tyler Hamilton's

--Michael Ball's

--Bill Clinton's

--Kool Moe Dee's


Which is NOT an actual reason given by Campagnolo press manager Francesco Zenere for his company's move to 11 speed?

--"Why not?"

--"Cyclists are never truly happy whether they are professionals or amateurs."

--"The extra cog offers smoother transitions between gears, allowing competitive riders to maintain optimal cadence in a variety of terrain."

--"The 11th speed is in fact the icing, while the cake is the remarkable makeover of the three groupsets dedicated to competition use."


Clem LueYat earned the title "Master HairWeaver of the World" by:

--Pioneering both the "Unique Interlocking Hair Weave System" and the "Wrap Net Weaving System"

--Consulting with Tom Boonen on his male pattern baldness

--Installing Johan Museeuw's hair implants

--Weaving Johan Museeuw's flax bicycle frames



Which is NOT an actual quote from Aaron Edge, editor of the new book Rain City Fix:

--"The customization of all of these bikes and the different people who ride them is fascinating to me."

--"If this inspires someone else to not only ride a fixed-gear bike or check it out...just have a community at all of anybody hanging out and doing stuff and have a collection of ideas...the momentum of this book that's what I hope starts."

--"I gave him a call at like two in the morning and was like, 'We're doing a book,' and the normal response from either of us when someone says something like that is, 'OK. Tell me about it. When do we do it?'"

--"I gave him a call at like two in the morning and was like, 'We're doing a book,' and he was like, 'Dude. It's two in the morning. I have a job. You don't. Call me in the morning.'"




The above is:



When does the film "The Love Guru" open?





This bike, photographed by a reader in Boston, is:


--A phlegmatic tea bike


--Fabulous!!!

As a former bike mechanic, and former New York resident, I love this site.

Making fun of people's goofy bike setups and corny looking outfits is great, but I think you need to explore critiqueing goony riding techniques. You know, the "chickenheads" that bob their head and torsos. People that ride really bowlegged. "Woodchoppers". "Gerbils spinning off the wheel" Locked elbow riders.

Anonymous said...

If you knew the dude who owns that last bike you would understand that it doesn't need to be locked

Of course the bike's not locked, can't you read the sign? Feeling all warm and fuzzy from yesterday, I can only compliment the machine and especially the matched bungee cord.

I was really hoping that I had over looked the Kool Moe Dee event in the past week, I was hoping that he was "rollin" with Ball and company and he had signed a hat.

At least the slayer siren is cool.

If Snobby's latest sexual conquest is reading these comments, please break up with him, immediately, and in the meanest way possible. While we do not mind a softie post every now and then to appeal to the ladies out there, it's been going on for almost a week now. It's not that we don't want the best for the snob, because we do, just not at the blog's expense. If you think a full break up is a little too much, at least piss him off real good.
Thanks for helping us out,

Hey, lay off, bitter fans: sometimes the truth hurts, and sometimes it's soft and fuzzy. Don't blame the messenger.

Kudos on the first quiz in memory based (almost) entirely on the blog's content, resulting in a near perfect score for me as it's the only media I seem to be paying full attention to...

In fact, while riding this morning, I thought about something BSNYC wrote yesterday and had an epiphany.

BSNYC observed that if you just ride, the fitness will happen by accident.

Now I understand why folks say I'm an accident waiting to happen.

Boy am I glad I got that one straightened out.

Commiecanuk said...

"Jumping the shark" was discussed on a recent episode of CSI, and thus has jumped the shark. But I agree with Smartypants, arguing about BSNYC jumping the shark has jumped the shark. Enough already, move on with your lives.

I think the bigger fear is doing a Letterman: be funny for a couple of years, then re-hash the same tired shit over and over again until you get a quadruple heart bypass, which, in the case of BSNYC, could take >40 years.

Thank god we're back to bitter, yesterday's, "...come on everybody, come together and love your brother, right now" shite was making me want to rent an Escalade and drive in bike lanes ($54 fine) while blasting Lemmy Kilmeister's "Ace of Spades". True story: Lemmy and I have the same dentist.

Pushing up the ante, I know you've got to see me,
Read 'em and weep, the dead man's hand again,
I see it in your eyes, take one look and die,


Look, if a loyal reader is going to spot a clown bike like that springer with a disc wheel, then the photo should include a well applied "seal of disapproval" sticker.

ant1 said...

Commentor from Whenever-
Why don't you start a blog about how dumb the commentors on this blog are? You can take our comments and make fun of them. You can also take some of Snobby's quotes and make fun of them. It seems that we've created a little blog subculture here, and that you don't like it one bit. It's like we've taken the art of blogging and turned it into some kind of joke, and that irritates you to no end, since you have seen the light and know the righteous way. So stop being such a fucking amateur and take us on like you were born with a pair: start a blog. No wait, that sounds familiar. Oh, I remember now, it's what Snob did. He had hatred, he had balls, and he had a vision. But instead of getting on pro-fixter blogs and talking anonymous shit, he got off his ass and started a movement. You, on the other hand, are just a lazy hater, you'll never make a difference, you'll just be an annoyance.

Anonymous said...

That quiz was awesome...the last one took a little evaluation but the only logical answer was "Fabulous" because that bike embodies the spirit of a true cyclist. Comfort, gearing, low rolling resistance, self sufficient, room for cargo, and plenty of lighting to ride safely during the other half of the day...the only thing it needs now is some fenders

short hair said...

so we already have a fake prolly, is there now a fake erik k to deal with?

Commiecanuk said...

...and while we're back to bitter, let's do something about Richard Sachs, my nomination for 2008 "Bike Twat of the Year".

His self-financed documentary "Imperfection is Perfection" took nine months to film, during which time Sachs brazed one fork tube while wearing red Wayfarers, and waxed ON and ON and ON about his life philosophy. If Nietzsche and Plato were alive today, they would likely be brazing overpriced custom steel frames in shack in Seattle.

"..my customers don't really want steel, they want ME."

Only $39.99

It feels like getting dropped on the mid-week ride, I can't read fast enough to keep up, I want to save a little for the weekend hammerfest, but I end up burning the midnight oil to stay in mid-pack.

Hey, its me, the guy you love to hate.

The guy that doesnt live in the city, doesnt ride his bike for a living, (which would ruin it for me), and at the age of 33, up and decides to build and ride fixie.

Im not new to 1 gear cycling, been ridding single speed ATB for 10yrs, just got my first 29er because lets face it, I live in Florida, and anything more than a ridgid 29er is overkill here.

I actually have ALOT of bikes, all single speed, the ATB, a fixed cruiser that I ride the 'hood w/ my kids, a small frame mountain bike w/ bmx parts that is now essentialy a 26" bmx that I ride on the track w/ my son, and the lugged, beat to shit, 1980 Nishiki I just built up. And of course, 3 or 4 frames that are not built up.

So why fixie now?
To piss you rude smelly "cant get a real job" bike messengers off!

Im kidding, I think its totally cool you guys do something you love, but you guys shouldnt assume that everytime someone wants to try fixie, that they are trying to take something away from you.

Dont be so self absorbed to think anyone that wants to ride fixie is trying to be like you.

Most of us are NOT.

Me, I just love to build and ride bikes, and enjoy having choices when I go out to the garage.

I dont wear long pants rolled up, or sleeveless shirts, or a funky hat. I dont do skid stops or bar spins, (although I am NOT running brakes).

In short, Im not trying to steal your culture, honestly, I could give a fuck about your culture, I built a fixie cause I wanted to, and guess what, when I rode it, I liked it.

Something tells me you all can relate to that.

So hate if you wish, but I cant understand you even giving a shit. Do your thing, Ill do mine, the sun will come up tomorrow and the better half of the poulation will be on bikes, any kind bike, any kind of person.

Or maybe you would prefer us posers just drive cars?


P.S.
If you are younger than 33, I was riding fixed before you were....its called a tricycle bitches!

KevinFtMyers said...

Maybe I need to clarify, at 2 or 3 years old we all ride a tricycle.......its a fixed setup.

So I, as did most, had / rode my first "fixie" as a very young child, so its not really something you guys have the vip, "insiders" hookup to.

But hey if it makes you feel elite in some way....

Anyway, I think fixed is great because its more like playing a sport or playing an instrument. You have to make everything happen, you have to play chess with everyone else, anticipating the movement of every car, bike, and person within 100 feet of you. Its just fun.

Some bikes now a days with auto shifting and shit like that is like playing a video game.
Its just very out of touch with the whole experience.

Well, Im preaching to the choir now, and I bet you are all ready for me to STFU. So..........

KevinFtMyers said...

One last post,

a list of things Im having trouble understanding why they end up on fixies.

anything carbon
Chris King
Velocity
Brooks
Thompson
anything gold
quick release anything

I use mine for errands and its left locked up in front of places.... wouldnt all the stuff I mentioned make someone want to fuck with your bike?

To the untrained eye, my bike looks like a p.o.s. locked up next to a new walmart bike.

Meanwhile, my rear hub cost as much as that bike.

Just seems like "ride like heaven, look like hell" is the way to go with a bike you leave out in public.

Any of you guys got a tricksy fixie?

Or do you go with the "ride like heaven, look like hell" philosophy?

I guess being a sarcastic prick makes you hard? You guys think you are hard, but read all of posts on these blogs, you are all the same guy, sharing one attitude and one frame of mind. So I guess that makes you all very hard sheep.

No room for someone whos not another sheep, cause it takes you out of your comfort zone.

This is why you guys are such a joke, pissed of when posers want to be like you, pricks to guys that arent like you. Its like you are all perpetual teenagers in your clique skipping school and hanging out behind the LBS, too cool for anyone else.

Well, I get the idea, its become obvious that Im not missing a thing if I dont read or post here.

Keep em turning......

Jeez, Kevin, it doesn't cost anything to start your own blog. You clearly have far too much wisdom to fit in the comments section of someone else's blog. Surely you have better things to do than hang around here making fun of all us dull posers! You are making some of us feel bad just because we pay good money for Brooks saddles and put them on our fixed gear bikes. I was thinking of getting some Velocity rims for my next wheel building session, but now that I know you would not approve, I think I'll just get some mavics or something. Killjoy. I hope you are happy.

"I know him pretty well and he's a solid dude and has been riding trikes for a long, long time for whatever thats worth...AND his asshole has been that way for a long, long time for whatever thats worth."

Anonymous,

The fact tat you have access to a photo like that speaks volumes about the person posting that.

Im sure shit like that is only available through
A: a paysite (pathetic)

or

B: its you (or your boyfriend)

By the way, people who post on blogs anonymously, are basically the lowest form of internet troll, who get off on being someone they dont have the balls to be in real life.

Get a pair, make an intelligent point (if your capable).

Im not afraid to take a ration of shit for being who I am, if I was, I wold probably post anonymously some picture I jerk of to, and try to pass it off as intelligent commentary.

Get a vocabulary, everyone (even the posters you think are cool, will appreciate it, and people in your real life might not think you are such a moron either.

Swatting trolls like you is like taking candy from a baby.

KevinFtMyers said...

Brooks,

No malice intended, all that stuff is good stuff, I have some of it on my other bikes.

It wasnt meant to be a review of whats appropriate for FG bikes.
Im certainly not qualified to say what is or isnt.

Just saying it doesnt seem to make sense for a bike that gets left out for anyone to see / swipe / trash.

And whats with the sarcasm schtick? (and thats what it is, SCHTICK). Are they issuing it with every track cog and lockring? Or do you guys think that somehow you cant be a "real"
fixed gear cyclist without it?
Most of you guys are probably regular joes, but turn up the sarcasm when youre on this blog or around othe cyclysts. Talk about being a poser.

Its soooo lame.

KevinFtMyers said...

I guess Im going about this the wrong way, maybe I should have been a total poser, and come on here trying to talk like you and act like you and basically been a weasally little fraud.

But I came on, told you who I was, and busted your balls a bit to show you Im no pansy, candy ass, spandex wearin, yuppie wanna be on a pista.

Guess it was a little too real cuz I didnt fit into the only 2 catagories you have chosen to recognize.

I thought some bike talk may take place or god forbid, a friendly tip or two about building / riding.

Whatever, just remember, you are always representing your community.......how are you doing so far?

SD said...

Kevin,
Take a breath, you are fighting in a paper bag. I'm not sure what blog you have this confused with, maybe Tightpantserringsouchebag or something.

Read. The. Archives.

You are amusing me though.

That new Super Record will work with the Super Record I've been running for 20 years, right? Becuase I'd like to go from 12 speeds to 22 just by getting a new freewheel and brake levers. The new Super Record come in non-aero, right? I don't want to have to re-tape my bars.

kevinfartmeyers,

I did a google search for "gay gaped asshole" no money involved. Me AND my boyfriend will take off our S&M masks when we cum down to fart myers and fuck you face to face.

blogger said...

Does posting 1 copy of a comment you posted on another blog count as "hardening up" and starting your own blog? Let's see some material on your own "blog" that is independent of your feelings towards this blog. THAT makes YOU a POSER. You thought you were gonna hit a fucking grand slam with that one didn't ya? Set the world on fire? You only fanned the flames on a fire that has been burning for far longer than your contribution to the blog world. Why don't you take in a softball game with the kid, bring a donut to sit on and ride your fixed gear experiment. Leave the sarcasm to those who appreciate it.

KevinFtMyers said...

LOL!

You guys are great, if nothing else I lmao everytime I read these comments. Its like being in a locker room or at a card game where eneryone is just unmercifully busting each others balls. Good stuff.

Still think your fixster NYC sarcastic attitudes are a SCHTICK though. Something you saw guys you looked up to doing and now you do it like a good little boy.
Like kids in school. Trying to be like the cool older kids were.

But hey, I guess we all do that in whatever walk of life we find ourselves in.

Anyway, not really trying to fight with you jackies, I find some of BSNY's threads interesting, and thought I would make a comment or two.

You guys have been stereotypical to say the least, but you probably are so wrapped up in the schtick that you think thats a good thing, just like dumbass college kids think doing stupid shit in front of other dumbass college kids is a good thing.

Ill close in saying, you guys ride bikes, that deserves respect, so Ill never run my mouth about that, its just the schtick thats so rediculous.

Im sure you are all stand up guys, once you get past it, just like Im a standup guy once you get past that Im a pansy, candy ass, spandex wearin, yuppie wanna be on a pista. LOL

I could be wrong, but if that's Bikesnob in the picture, I have to stop saying "BSNYC is my Hero" - looks like he's a she, and therefore my heroine...

术+术:可能是唯一有可能冲上2300的同职业组合,天赋一般选用双恶魔法+贼:控制+爆发型,法师的爆发力略胜术士,不过容错性非常小,游戏相似组合还有法+野D,法+暗牧法+法:双冰法控制,综合来说还不错,续战力也存活能力也很强。双奥法的秒杀流一经提出就被喷的面目全非,我本人其实尝试过这个组合,可惜装备只有S2,法伤最多也只能撑到102X(现在能高不少),魔兽队友情况也差不多。这样的组合容错性低的离谱,虽然有10000+HP 400+韧性,但是感觉一被打就瞬间死,而且跑还跑不掉,所以这个打法还是更适合高端副本装,反正一样死很快。组合上还是克死战士队,别和我提盾反,网络游戏那么明显的动画效果能吸到个火冲不错了。网游基本上能够硬顶过我们5秒的职业只有骑士,冰法,盗贼和恶魔SS了。打盗贼队伍,如果是盗贼+看的见,一律先把看的见的OOXX了,双盗贼很难打,2斗篷我们免费网络游戏直接去一人。最后被一个队恶魔SS+骑士卡住了,因为奥法的后续爆发几乎没有,开局秒恶魔SS和骑士都不成功。感觉装备足够猛的话,2000是没问题的,2000以后看能否连好沉默来秒SS了。法伤最好是NOBUFF 1200+以上,最新网游保证秒杀的成功率,可以不用考虑血和韧性,建议装备牛B的法师们平时娱乐使用,非常畅快的战斗贼+暗牧:爆发力非常强的组合,而且他们的视频里很不厚道的最新免费网络游戏吃了金童3场贼+野D:第一赛季闷+盲+消失补闷+飓风的完美控制秒杀型队伍,不过在徽章能解所有控制技能之后容错性大大降低了。
