BSNYC Friday Fun Quiz!

Firstly, I have news of great importance for any haters out there.  Please note that you have been granted a temporary reprieve from ball-sucking, as the beloved "All You Haters Suck My Balls" wheel has officially been unlaced:



While the haters may be relieved, the rest of you are surely as distressed as this wheel is de-stressed.  I've been a great fan of this wheel ever since I first laid eyes on it, and it pains me deeply to see the heart quite literally cut out of this once-great rolling statement.  However, I've been assured the owner has future plans for the AYHSMB rim, and I am comforted to know that it will one day roll again.  So we can all breathe easy--though if you're a hater, your days of unobsructed breathing are surely numbered.

And with that said, it is my sadistic pleasure to beset you with a quiz.  As always, read the question, think carefully, and click on your answer.  If you're right, you'll see the item.  If you're wrong, you'll see definitive proof of the presta valve's superiority.

Good luck, and as always thanks for reading.

Wow, bike producers and porn producers apparently both look for the same thing - giant ones which demonstrate both lateral and tortional stiffness.

Relace the AYHSMB wheel and send it with Hincapie to Roubaix next year instead of the HED.

ant1,

Hey, it's a quiz--gotta keep people on their toes.

Andrew,

I scrutinized the photo and I'm pretty sure it does have a quick release, though it certainly wouldn't hurt to bring the multi-tool just in case.

If the Specialized is indeed filled with killer bees (nice), they'll still lose the bike, but it will go to caller #2

"If you're buying a bike to ride with a group of friends, pick the same type of bike they have."

What kind of vague bullshit is that? I would have had a perfect score if it weren't for that gem of journalistic pablum.

To the person who wants to send that wheel to Hincapie for Roubaix--BRILLIANT!!!

Thats the best laugh I've had on here in awhile. Sorry, snobby, but hey good to have you back. I missed you.

A Shabes-Goy Pit-Parrot for Saturday Cyclocross Races! That's one way to get the pressure dialed on your Dugasts ...

Is that the parrot that let all but 30 psi of air out of the metal race tires?

Sorry streepo, I'm last. As usual.

kale said...

Cyclocross bikes are the new singlespeed which were the new fixed gear.

Gnarles Darwin said...

I did very very poorly on todays quiz. I will hang my head in shame until I get chance to redeem myself on next weeks quiz. Judging by the quote on CNBC it think its safe to say that BSNYC is not Jewish but Some sort of Lord, Count, or Baron.

Commiecanuk said...

The last photo is obviously taken of a Jehova's Witness' Specialized. They are forbidden to use pad locks, but instead rely on the faith of Jehova and the brutal beatings of bike thieves with stacks of Watchtower brochures.

All you non-believers can suck Jehova's balls.

Cyclocross WAS the new singlespeed, but it was usurped by singlespeed cyclocross bikes. I was into singlespeeds in the SEVENTIES, three-wheeled singlespeeds to be exact, and back then like now, brakes were for pussies, ..or girls, who, of course, ...had cooties.

kale said...

Nice bike commie. Did you just trail bags of ketchup flavored Lays behind you to stop?

AH said...

You need you eyes checked, people -- that is most certainly a QR seat binder.

John said...

Q) What's the worst part of being the only person to notice that the holder of the AYHCSMB wheel has it strategically positioned to perfectly frame his formerly frequently-sucked balls?

A) telling my wife I'm gay.

John said...

not that there's anything wrong with that, of course.

The "killer bees" conjured up quite an image.

here is a question for you... who did Lance Armstrong recently ride with? A) Dave Chappelle B) MASH Crew C) Team Dentist/Serrotta or D) BSNYC?

Good luck!

ant1 said...

333 - D?

A said...

333 - The answer is B, the Mash crew.
If anybody is interested, the video is on their newly remodeled site. Along with the video, they added links to their favorite sites, and I found it interesting the They include BSNYC as one of their links.

that's because unlike BSNYC's readers, the MASH guys are actually pretty open minded.

No offense BSNYC, but these comments are almost as funny as your posts these days. Watch out.

The banner across the top of the last issue of Velonews is "Lance shoots for eight tour win". when I first pulled it out of my mailbox and looked at it quickly I thought it said "Lance shoots up for eight tour win". Dyslexia can be fun sometimes.

That's actually the corect way to lock a Specialized, once you realise just what a POS you just bought and how much you have it insured for...

Philip Williamson said...

After you deduct the podiumists, the knuckle-tat suggestions, the inane repeaters and the insane, BSNYC has like eight actual comments.

I can't believe how NICE No Impact Man was to his congersman! I guess you catch more flies with honey than with U-locks.

Critical Ass said...

Last time I checked, the market value on aluminum drops that have been cut up with a hacksaw was $0.00 Pretty impressed by the amount of detail, though.

Hmmm. And those metalheads on that Inquisition site make disparaging comments about attempted irony. I was a bit surprised at the competently used punctuation and evidence of the use of several shift keys on that blog and in the comments. I suppose that's encouraging. I dunno, maybe it's just ironic.

rmckittr said...

Notice that all of the cut spokes on the AOYHCSMB wheel are pointing to the proposed area of suckage.

Where did you see that specialized bike locked up?

I have a bee keeper's outfit and would love a new mountain bike...
