BSNYC Thursday Fun Quiz! (with announcement)

First of all, while I've got your attention, I'd like to take the opportunity to inform you that I have been mercifully called away from New York City for a few days.  As such, after today I will be gone through Tuesday of next week, and will resume regular updates on Wednesday the 27th.  However, this should not stop you from stopping by on Friday, Monday, and Tuesday, because I've arranged for some material from a special guest contributor.  So stay tuned.

In the meantime, on the eve of my departure, I've decided to leave you on a sour note by hitting you with a quiz.  As usual, study the question, think, and click on your answer.  If you're right you'll know it.  If you're wrong, you'll see this video of Critical Mass riders making a difference, as forwarded by a reader.

Thanks for reading, and good luck.  See you on the 27th, and be sure to stop by in the meantime.

--RTMS


"It was over before I even knew what happened."

Who said the above, and to what does it refer?




Are these things for real?

--Yes
--No


Thanks to sponsor Levi's, fans of BMX pro Morgan Wade can vote online to determine:





The above, spotted by a reader in Charlottesville, VA, is:







The above, seen in Prospect Park, depicts:




(It's the Marlboro douche!)

Ah yes, bikes and cigarettes--so cool, and even cooler together.  Which company is selling their clothing with carcinogens?


Who said, "That's just pure ignorancy" with regard to the Riccardo Ricco affair?






Special sepia-toned bonus question--the owner of the leg above is:

First top ten..how exciting

Top ten. Yippee.

Flatman said...

What do I win???

Anonymous said...

sorry I'm late, i was out breaking in my new yakkay bicycle helmet on my staircycle. what did i miss?

Brendan said...

Flatman - I think you win a pack of Twin Six cancer sticks if you place in the top ten. I could be wrong though, maybe it's a pair of used R&R skinny girl jeans and a slightly used Cannondale (with free lock!).

ant1st said...

First!

Anonymous said...

About a million FatCyclist readers are going bonkers when they see Fatty jerseys being advertised with cancer sticks...

Lord Batu said...

Ahhh Charlottville...How quaint.
I probably wouldn't steal that piece of shit, but I might throw it in the dumpster and then post up and watch the panic.
Heavy on the Stupid Dildos, way to go!
US Women Beat Brazil!!!!
Go USA!
Top 20?

Only one wrong.

But yes, I saw the stair cycle late Sunday afternoon in the Park. Ain't New York amazing? (I wonder if it can be used on Saturdays because it doesn't count as riding.)

And I recognized the Twin Six jersey. Honestly, how can you play bike polo while smoking? On second thought, how could consider playing bike polo if you hadn't been smoking something?

Have a good long weekend, BSNYC. I'm out next week.

You didn't give your keys to Opinionated Cyclist, did you? I'm not sure I'd name him the designated driver.

Jim said...

Kierin Cut Jeans? Tremendous idea.

But I'd only want them if they smelled like two-stroke engine smoke, or alternately, like fat, cigarette-smoking derny drivers.

AH said...

A special guest contributor? So I assume you and Opinionated Cyclist hammered out your differences then. OC's YouTube jihad obviously had you quaking in your boots.

Anonymous said...

Is this Beth the Keirin Cut Woman winning a miss and out at Hellyer Velodrome?

Bikeslob 80220 said...

Hell yeah, break out the half gallon of Tropicana orange juice and the green grease paint. The OC is coming!

Commiecanuk said...

The helmet hat has tremendous potential. They could make then out of kelvar for riding in dodgy areas. They could resurrect the urban sombrero for cyclists. I'm waiting for one with a Louis XIV white wig, for that air of sophistication while pedaling with the masses.Of course, the hat band would be useful for securing a pack of smokes, 'nam style.

I was expecting snobbie to be on about the Cervelo fork recall on carbon fiber steerer forks. Seems that the 90g I saved will be offset with the weight of inevitable pins and plates after my bars snap off in my hands.

Bikeslob 80220 said...

Beth,

Track bikes aren't for racing around in a circle, silly. No wonder your thighs got so huge. If Michael Ball doesn't respond, then I have an alternate solution. Buy your jeans at Lane Bryant and wear a belt.

tps12 said...

Yes! I totally forgot until I saw this post, the StairCycle guy went by my house the other day. He was going like 6 mph down the Clinton St bike lane.

AH said...

Commie--
It's not often you get to see product recalls in real-time:

This occurred on Sunday.

Then this was announced today.

AskReamer said...

I've noticed the fixsters appropriating the scraper bike, as they do everything else. Appearently, nothing is sacred anymore,not even bikes with aluminum foil and spraypaint. apologies for the shameless self-promo, but check here for photos of the real deal - www.matthewreamer.com.

-d said...

I predict that Erik K will take the helm while RTMS is galavanting.

I hope to see angry geese, alpacas, and other varmints of class destruction.

If not, I'll be terribly dissapointed. Unless, of course, there is a 3 day Sepia-thon...

Commiecanuk said...

ah,
Much talking about that photo. The instructions from TrueTemper say you cannot exceed 8cm from the top bearing, but that genius decided to have 20mm on top of his stem for no good reason (hang plastic grocery bags?) Incorrect cut stems are the pie plates of the road racing world.
I have a 0.02% chance of my steerer breaking before it gets replaced. I live with this everyday now, yet, I live on.

MAXED ART said...

'A free Cannondale' or if you live an a more happy city, just a locked up bike.

El Guapo [TC] said...

I think more girls should blog about their thighs and underwear...with many gratuitous pics of their naughty regions.

Nice sepia add!

Anonymous said...

top 40!

AH said...

Commie-
Ah yes, the 20mm of steerer above the top of the stem...

That is so guys who get "team deals" can sell their bikes at the end of the season to recreational riders who can't tolerate such low bar positions.

Fungineer said...

I own an identical Cannondale, which I've never had to lock up. However, if I had to, I'd certainly choose the gas meter within view of the short pole that this individual decided would be suitable. At least that way, the potential thief may engulf himself and his Twin Six gear in a ball of fire when he stops for a cigarette break midway through defeating the bike lock.

leroy said...

Wait a second, BSNYC, are you turning the site over to Beth Bikes for a few days?

That would be awesome.

I just read some of her stuff. She's good!

erik k said...

I bet he's got some sort of deal with fat cyclist

Anonymous said...

Not sure if this has made it on this blog, but I kind of felt embarrassed and weird watching it.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BoLKvWf4Fd0&feature=related

Then, I found this about the video:
New Nada Surf Video - "Whose Authority" (Stereogum Premiere)

Nada Surf's new Jonathan Krisel-directed video for "Whose Authority," from the forthcoming Lucky, stars Michael C. Maronna, who you should all remember as the elder Pete from The Adventures Of Pete and Pete. Classic. Here, instead of dealing with his pain-in-the-ass kid brother or doing those sensitive wise-beyond-his-teenage-years voice overs, he's working as a bad-ass bicycle messenger delivering packages around Manhattan after leaving his Brooklyn crib. En route he disrupts pigeons, chats with other two-wheeled friends, kicks over traffic cones, knocks on buses, and narrowly escapes collisions with taxi doors before heading back over the Wiliamsburg bridge and calling it a day. Yes, home to that cool place MTV told us about. Gosh we hope Kyp says hi this time.

leroy said...

Fat Cyclist guest host? That would be pretty good too.

But why not you, erik k?

Have a good weekend Snobby.

I'll try to be on my best behavior. Any comments resulting from my pent up roadie lust will only be directed to Andy Pandy.

Unless your guest is the OC -- game on.

Anon 2:11 said...

Hmm, Twin Six selling Fat Cyclist Jerseys with Cigarettes!

More marketing gone mad. Pretty soon kids will be smoking like the tires of a fat fixter riding brakeless! And wearing jerseys.

Oh the horror.

totalchaud said...

Anyone seen this shit!!??

Don't worry, its bikey related....

Pack Phil said...

Re: ah's link to cyclingnews.com. I like the way it says "Believe it or not, but this rider did not crash after breaking the steerer tube". Sounds like that rider didn't try to throw the bars away (a la Hincapie '06 paris-roubaix) only to have the cables swing it right back into the spokes...

AnnaZed said...

I really do fear that it might be the insane OC, though of course fascinated and freaked out I will return to find out.

brettok said...

If 'all of the above' is a correct answer, how can the other answers be wrong?

Anonymous said...

brettok, just lime elementary school ... the BEST answer is correct. so if all are true then all of the above is the best answer because it encompasses the most.

... just helpin'

Anonymous said...

apparently I didn't pass elementary school

lime = like

bikesgonewild said...

...if it's the "oc" i will contribute nothing but derisive antagonism...that way i won't have to stretch my imagination...

...& an "oc" appearance would be the equivalent of going from drinking champagne to having gutter swill poured down yer throat...

...gag reflex...

tex said...

I'm bettin' it's OC. He could do a really killer Dr. Gene spoof if he had a little less dain bramage. But then he'd have to start smoking cigars. Never mind.

Boz said...

I thought Earnest P Worrel died, but now he shows up smokin' heaters and playing bike polo. Who knew?

leroy said...

Boz --

Earnest died??!!!

Why am I always the last to know what I mean, Vern?

Anonymous said...

mmmmm, gutter swill... bgw did we go to the same college?

Russ said...

I'm glad that someone is pointing to the steerer in that Cervelo photo or else I probably would have never figured out what I was supposed to be looking at.

Bikeslob 80220 said...

Apparently, the OC has a business proposal for BSNYC. I think the collabo is about to drop!

Bikeslob 80220 said...

OK, I finished watching the video and it's almost 10 minutes long. So if you have 10 minutes to kill, go ahead and suffer through it. If not, here is a written transcript:

10 LET A=1
20 PRINT "Bikesnob, blah, blah, blah, um, Bikesnob, blah, blah, um, um, blah, blah, Bikesnob, um, Bikesnob, blah, blah, blah, $250,blah, Bikesnob, um, um, um, uh, Bikesnob, blah, blah, blah..."
30 LET A=A+1
40 IF A<20 THEN GOTO 20
50 END

Don't forget to pack your "Collapsible Fixed-Gear Bike" (only $2475)

pompom said...

From totalchaud's link

Mr. Anderson disagrees. Cars always will vastly outnumber bikes, he reasons, so allotting more street space to cyclists could cause more traffic jams, more idling and more pollution.

I'm not sure I'd call that reasoning. I think it might be called "making unwarranted assumptions". Mainly the guy just hates Critical Mass, though. And all those bike messengers on his lawn.

People were wandering around the tour of utah punching team doctors? Why did I waste my time watching dorky, skinny guys ride in a circle when I could have been watching dorky, skinny guys brawl? I want my money back. Shit. It was free.

Andy Pandy said...

Frills, If the OC floats ya boat then stroke away. Trust your instincts and know that I will be watching ( secretly from the hedge outside..... ooops you are not meant to read that) as your online chaperone.

I can only hope that it is the OC next week,as after watching syncronised swimming for a week I am all twitchy for some blood'n guts train wreck action that only the OC could cook up

frilly said...

AP, the OC does not float my boat, I was merely thinking about the cat and mouse aspect.

I'm looking for a playmate not a chaperone.

Andy Pandy said...

Frills, Grandma Mamby Pandy always told me to look for the good in everyone... so with the OC I would imagine that his best point would be you would never be bored in his company, ....always a guessin

frilly said...

Indeed!

frilly said...

Not that this would have a snowball's chance in hell cuz 1. I usually like to be the one wearing the make-up and 2. he seems to be a little egotistical which is kind of odd for a crazy person. Hence the Opinionated I suppose.

His last movie was back in 2000 "Ernest Takes A Dirt Nap". Varney actually died from lung cancer. Ironic?

adelen said...

A whole array of anti-smoking therapies are available in the market that you can get hold of for the purpose of triggering off smoking cessation. Some of the procedures to treat smoking addiction, namely, quit smoking medicines such as chantix (champix), Zyban and nicotine replacement therapies(nicotine gum, patches and lozenges) can help you to quit smoking at the earliest. To get hold of detailed information on these anti-smoking treatment procedures, visit the website http://www.chantixmagic.com.
