Fitment Issues: K.O.P.S. vs. C.O.P.S.

No sooner did I announce The Great BSNYC/RTMS Fyxomatosis Photo Parody Contest (presented by the Gourmet Cheese of the Month Club) than the submissions began to roll in. You'll note that I didn't put forth much in the way of rules, since mixing "rules" and "art" is like mixing Shimano and Campy and I didn't want to inhibit anyone's creativity. Unfortunately though, I should have at least specified "no testicles," because one of the first photographs I received was this:

After burning my monitor and purchasing a new one I sent the contestant a sternly-worded email, though I did offer him a second chance and I'm pleased to say he redeemed himself:


This is infinitely more tasteful and a solid effort. The singlespeed mountain bike is the track bike's dirtier, uglier second cousin (just as the clear chainring guard is the pie plate's chunkier and only slightly less dorky half-brother), and the Foster's can represents Fyxomatosis. Note also the placement of the Foster's (or, as they call it in Australia, "breakfast), which as you can see has been "kicked to the curb" (or, as they call it in Australia, the "kerb"). He's even managed to slip in an Obama spoke card and a Pentabike sock. But perhaps most importantly, no testicles are in evidence. (Or, as they call them in Australia, "pants yabbies.")

Here's another salacious submission:



It's becoming increasingly clear to me that I've opened a Pandora's can of worms with this contest. I refuse to make any cheap comments about the track ends and "rear entry," though I do reserve the right to gloat about my refusal, and I maintain that alluding to a tasteless comment is different from actually making it. (Saying you haven't done something even when you just did it is called an "Australian denial.") I also think it's worth pointing out that any spouse or significant other walking in on this photo shoot would very quickly get the wrong idea, so I want to state unequivocally that this site shall not be responsible for any domestic disputes resulting in putting underpants on bicycles. (Or, as they call putting underpants on bicycles in Australia, "Saturday night.")

Finally, speaking of mountain bikes, pie plates, and extreme naughtiness, it just so happens that even before I announced the Fyxomatosis contest a reader sent me this photo involving a pie-plated mountain bike:

Because the original photo is highly unsafe for work, notice I have dressed the model in colors that match her bicycle. (She already had the gloves and shoes.) Notice also that I have not made any tasteless jokes about "exposed pie plates." (That's another "Australian denial.") If you want to see the original and you are either not at work or you work in the sort of place where it's perfectly acceptable to look at explicit pornography (like Starbucks corporate headquarters, or the Parliament of Australia, or any company in France), it's (here). If you can't look but you're still curious, I'll just tell you she's pretty much doing what most fixed-gear freestylers do, which is climbing all over the bike without actually riding it.

Yes, fixed-gear freestyling can sometimes be a fashion show. Literally. Just take a look at this video:

Naturally I immediately performed the BSNYC/RTMS Fixed-Gear Video Test on this. While the Celine Dion music didn't match up too well, this did. In fact, I think in Smash Mouth's "All Star" I may very well have found the perfect fixed-gear video soundtrack. It works with absolutely everything. I'm not sure why this is, but I suppose it has something to do with the fact that it's cartoonish, irritating, and massively overplayed, with just a hint of contrived "edginess." Celine's great for the videos with high production values, but she's just a little too schmaltzy for the "grittier" stuff.

In addition to discovering the perfect fixed-gear video soundtrack, I think I may also have discovered the missing link between the fixed-gear trend and the p-far trend. And that link is the elephant trunk skid:

I don't know why I didn't notice this sooner, but it's obvious to me now that the elephant trunk skid is simply a subconscious attempt to mimic the penny-farthing riding style:


(Fixters look up to p-fars. Way up.)

I can only surmise that there must be something in the DNA of certain riders that compels them to clamber up atop the front wheel in this matter, and I also suspect that many of them will never be satisfied until they own actual p-fars. Until they do, they will continue to compulsively straddle their Aerospokes and Hed tri-spokes and Spinergy Rev-Xes in the same way that Richard Dreyfuss couldn't stop himself from sculpting that mountain in "Close Encounters of the Third Kind."

But while K.O.P.S. isn't for everyone, neither is C.O.P.S. ("Crotch Over Pedal Spindle," the p-far fitting rule of thumb). I was thumbing through the New York Times Style Magazine (don't ask me how these awful things find their way into my bathroom) when I noticed this:

Yes, it's an essential bit of journalism about some sockless rich guy and all his expensive crap. Notice that like many sockless rich guys with expensive crap, he has a relatively inexpensive and useless bicycle:

“He describes his Electra Townie 21-speed (around $500) as a beach cruiser on steroids. ‘The pedals are positioned slightly forward, so you can ride forever and not get tired.’”

Wow, that's not just misinformation--it's misinformation on steroids. If positioning your feet slightly forward on a bicycle meant you could ride forever without getting tired then recumbents would be perpetual motion machines. (As it is, they're just perpetual embarrassment machines.) Granted, I have no recumbent riding experience, but I'm fairly certain they tire you out eventually. Then again, I could be wrong. Maybe some of these guys have been riding around for years, stopping only to feed themselves at drive-thru fast food restaurants. (That could explain while they all have beards and ample midriffs.)

Lastly, I'd like to announce that I'm about to "drop" a "collabo." Many of you probably saw this coming, and I can now confirm that the rumors are true and I'm finally about to release my own line of paper towels:

As you can see, I've been test-marketing them in Brazil, where they've been a smashing success. Not only are they highly absorbent, but in a pinch you can use them to make yarmulkes. I'm also looking for the perfect pitch person, preferably a pro rider famous for crashing a lot. I'm currently in talks with Cadel Evans. "When I take a spill on the bike, I drop back to the team car. But when I spill my Foster's, I reach for a roll of Snob." Cadel will tell you he's not considering it, but that's just an Australian denial.

The twelve vibes vid is like, total killer... I'm with Pop Richmond.

Jeezus, those guys are the lamest lame-o's in lameville. Watching the kid 'huck' a drop-in on a 3ft high by 30 degree ramp was a definate highlight. runner up goes to the last guy trying (and failing) at one of the easiest flatland tricks out there.

Snobby said: "I think I may also have discovered the missing link between the fixed-gear trend and the p-far trend. And that link is the elephant trunk skid."

One time I was riding part of the Philadelphia Freedom Valley Ride, with old-timey style guy Curtis, who owns Via Bicycle. (Curtis used to ride a hotdog vending bicycle to Lemon Hill during the US Pro races. And, he has an old-timey handlebar moustache.) Anyhoo, while we were riding the Freedom Valley Ride, he told me that one year, he did the whole ride on a p-far. I was astounded how he did this one particular steep and fast descent. He said that on a p-far, you put your legs up over the handlebars, so that your legs stay out of the way of the spokes and pedals, until the bike gets to the bottom and finally slows down.

So, based on this important information about p-far technique, I have come to the conclusion that it's not so much the elephant trunk skid that links the fixties and p-fars, its that they like to hang legs over the handlebars.

Draw your own conclusions about teabagging the handlebar...

brett said...

I realize a properly adjusted der shouldn't drop a chain into the spokes, but it can be a fairly costly mistake when it happens. It seems you appreciate the value of clutter like brakes and bar tape, so why are pie plates such a no-no?

Note: earnest question, no criticism or irony intended.

bikesgonewild said...

...brett...earnest answer...

...honestly, how many times have you ever dropped yer chain into the spokes...
...think i've done it twice in 40 years of riding (yep, that long) & not once in the last 30 years...

...just sayin'...

frilly said...

Genghis--I agree. That elephant trunk skid guy is like a car accident. I can't help but stare & wonder--Why does he have his head thrown to the side like that? Is he wearing lycra with a button up? Are those women's sunglasses?

I don't understand how something so senseless like this happens.

wishiwasmerckx said...

Brett, a properly- adjusted derailleur will not throw the chain ABSENT PILOT ERROR. This is why the pieplate is such a no-no. Learn to properly operate your equipment and the pieplate becomes extraneous weight and clutter. Pieplates are the training wheels of the multi-geared.

"I AM BIKE SNOB!" I said...

At least one of the Supra-Schills was using BMX bars.

And now I understand why small riser bars became so popular all of a sudden.

Boys-to-men had outgrown their BMX frames but swapped some of the parts, or were at least more comfortable with them.

I liked hi-rise bars, northroad bars and drop bars for the same reason of familiarity and it took a while for me to appreciate MTB straight bars.

No one speaks about it, but the victimization of the bicycles in these "art" pictures is the real tragedy. When BikeSnob had to burn his monitor, was he thinking of the degradation that the bicycle had to endure? Oh sure, "Hey, they're just making a living," or, "no one is forcing them to do it," you might be thinking. But do these bicycles really have a choice? They grow up in degrading circumstances. Sometimes being passed from persom to person along the way to be used in any way the "owner" see fit. Come on people! You can get your jollies some other way, can't you? As Susan Powter would say: "Stop the insanity!!!"

What is a Fleshlight?

The Fleshlight contains an interchangeable masturbation sleeve which is encased in a container that resembles a large flashlight, allowing for simple and discreet storage. The masturbation sleeve portion is made from a patented material called Real Feel Superskin™, which is famous for its ability to replicate the sensation of penetrative sex through various orifices such as the vagina, mouth or anus. The sleeves themselves come in a variety of inner textures to enhance your sexual experience.

The biggest difference between the Fleshlight and all other masturbation toys, is its incredibly realistic feel, attention to quality, and ease of use. The Fleshlight is a high-quality product which is made in the USA, and, with proper care, will give you a lifetime of enjoyment.

Get over the fixed gear bashing. There's twice as many Mountain bike riders on the streets of SF than roadies and fixed combined. Don't hear you talking shit about these goof balls with their $600 front shox to absorb the occasional MUNI track.

SF Riding,
The reason the Freds riding high buck dual-sqishies on city streets are relatively ridicule-free is that they perform the necessary service of keeping nice sleds in good condition so they can be sold to real riders on the cheap after they loose their luster.
Just try to think of your beloved streets as an open-air, no-kill shelter for wayward bikes, and their riders as foster owners.
It's trickle-down economics at its best!

SF Riding:

Having lived in both places I can attest to the superior ability of the mtb in SF/BA. That aside, it's been pretty much impossible until the recent SSMTB trend to get a new mtb without 100mm or more squish stock, and if you want to put a (Surly/Kona) aftermarket or recycled solid, that's way above most people's ability (not to mention fixing a flat). However, the few, if any, mtbs in NYC are ridden by the hardest working Thai delivery people in the world. Those Schwinns, Iron Horses, and Pacifics are the only fully squish you'll see, they're definitely goof balls, and they outnumber roadies and fixters by at least 3 orders of magnitude.

Also, BSNYC vs. BSSFO. BS means something else in SF, as I recall.

What stuns me about the elephant trunk skid is the willingness to lay one's real genitals over a pair of handle bars, potentially sacrificing them, for the display of a purely metaphorical phallus, the "elephant trunk." Not always clear on this irony thing, but I think it might apply here.

And, now that I think about it, perhaps this strange elephant trunk display doesn't, in fact, indicate such a high level of stupidity -- performers, sans pants, probably sport the flat asexual look of a Ken doll -- this is all a desperate cry for the lords of science to bequeath them with a functioning elephant-like dangle between the legs. The "elephant" is "I NEED a phallus."
