BSNYC Friday Fun Quiz!

(Columbo recovers the goods--image by Hjulcompaniet)


As the riders in the Tour of California prepare to test their legs in the time trial, I invite you to test your mental acuity by taking a quiz. This quiz consists almost entirely of items forwarded by readers. As always, study the item, think carefully, and click on your answer. If you're right you'll know it, and if you're wrong you'll see this video, which not only takes used bike salesmanship to a new level but also has a soundtrack that implies the bicycle might have a "surprise" in store for the purchaser.

Good luck, thanks for reading, and ride safe this weekend.

Questions 3,4,5,and 6 belong In the Bike Snob Hall of Fame. Gotta go . I have to stop by the dry cleaners and pick up my cycling tuxedo for the weekend.

that guy said...

If only I could ride my bike as well as I place on the BSNYC comment page, I'd be a Cat. 4 by now.

WHAT THE HELL? what did we do to deserve the YES dance? wow, that was hilarious/terrifying.

ripster the hipster said...

god i just hate it when my hair gets all messed up because of my lack of brakes. that and when my jeans get all dirty from my chain. oh, and when i get grease on my bare leg and i don't even have a sock to wipe it off on. ew, that's the worst.

dopester the jokester said...

why don't hipsters wear socks?

because they've all been thrown away because of excessive pearl jam stains.

CommieCanuck said...

I luv my snuggie blanket.

It's best to get the whole house wearing them, with new sneakers, then invite people over and offer then some grape koolaid, but don't drink it yourself.

Good times.

leroy said...

If you are attending the snuggie pub crawl this weekend, ride safely and use really, really big pant clips.

Tony Bullard said...

Question 2 is a trick. No one in their right mind could ever consider the sound that comes out of Duffy's mouth "singing."

kale said...

Shane really needs to be stopped.

Pretty soon he's gonna invent the best/worst invention ever for hipsterdom - a prefab coasterbrake bike that will be sold at Urban Outfitters for under $250.

American Apparel will offer ones of higher quality , but made in Los...er... Queens for 20% more.

Shane will retire on his ranch-style 4 bedroom home in Texas a happy man.

So it was said, and so it shall be...

Neil said...

Q. 8 seems like a great idea, until it comes loose, gets jammed between the wheel and seattube and EXPODES! Then your "contrail" becomes some kind of Care Bears inspired James Bond-esque defensive countermeasure. Actually, that's an even better idea....never mind.

jolene said...

red you done seen my cans like evertime i win at keno boy howdy but you keep pushin ricky hes done near fed up with the sneakin around hes lible to upn clock you in the beerhole you need to get the astro workin agin by the way or i have to get the blue tarp for the viper snuggly crawl

Pack Phil said...

Sad to say that I saw Claud's bike a few times too many in this quiz. I'm stunned that this Majestic bike is lacking a pie plate.

red neckerson said...

i hears you hot mama im fixin on seein yor hole butterfly later on tonite

Anonymous said...

I prefer the slap-chop to the snuggie.

NO MORE BORING TUNA!!!!
NO MORE BORING LIFE!!!

You're gonna luv my nuts.

Nice hooters, Jolene

Somebody please make that chalk dispenser available commercially.

Can someone tell me the difference between the Claude Butler and a Raleigh Super Grand Prix?

RM said...

That quiz was tough, but I did guess correctly on the audio bonus. I guess it was pretty obvious it was 'all of the above' but I still feel better about myself.

Peace out motha lickas!

Tim said...

Fork in the garbage disposal is the funniest thing I've seen this week.

bikesgonewild said...

..."some a ya all don't remember shit" or you'd know we revisit the 'yes dance' periodically here...

...& the "let's do the fork in the garbage disposal" ???...that ain't nothin' but an uptempo 'grateful dead' "seaweed dance"...

...just sayin'...

bikesgonewild said...

...re: #8...

...that was kim kirchen of team columbia's problem the other day...got his "snuggy" (told ya it was cold out here) caught in his rear wheel...out a the race & into the hospital...

...only in california ???...now it looks like w/burg, brooklyn, nyc, as well...

Fierce Panties said...

Is there anyway that the Bike Remora could fail to release from the car with the safety leash wrapped around the wrist?

No? Too bad.

I can almost imagine the feeling I would have to see a fixster being dragged by an Escalade. One canvas shoe still in the clip dragging the whip along, one Urban Outfitter cycling cap gently bouncing off the pavement, the driver finally looking in his side mirror smiling along with me.

bikesgonewild said...

...fierce panties...

...that's sick !!!...but i definitely love it 'cuz i kinda had the same imagery goin' on...(actually, that & more)...

...talk about totally major dumb ideas...can you say "huge lawsuits"...

Not funny

dr2chase said...

I like the contrail. Add an on-off button, stick it on a P-far, and we could write sekrit messages in morse code.

bikesgonewild said...

...anon 4:46pm...

...whoa !!!...& i thought fierce panties & i were sick...

...but i'm sure ant1 will find solace in this little "inspirational" video...

Wes said...

Don't bite Ant1, it's a trap.

Slight techno problem here but this really is the mutts nuts.

red neckerson said...

jolene what ever you done to me last night done trashed my right ankule and that bumms me out because i was going to go out riding today and now i cants

that buffy clip made me want to go out and drink myself silly i mean crap you fellers make fun of us hilljacks for liking dolly p and carrie and martina but damm at least none of them is butt ugly and they can all carry a tune that buffy cant carry no tune in a slop bucket and i knows what im talking about

but it did makes me think of them stores in bigger cities in Kentucky like pikeville and paintsville where you can drive yor car rite into the store and by beer

i rides my bike right on in and pick up a sixpak of keystone or bushbeer and stick it in my backpak ond ether go to my trailer or the pubic libary or if im lucky i goes to jolenes house if her parents aint there

if you wants to get gooder at climing hills try doing it with a sixpack of keystone or bushbeer on yor back

then drink the damm things and you go reel fast

im thinking lance could learn a thing or two from me

i think thats it but i wouldnt be wasting so much time at the computer if jolene hadnt trashed my ankule and kept me from riding

i aint no troll i likes them bikes it helps to be tuffer than the peeple who makes fun of you because i jest beet the shit out of them and they dont do it agin

i thinks thats all i gots to say for now

bgw-

since when has a FFQ ever gotten over 100 comments?

kale said...

There's finally something that will work better than helmets. Still need to work on the breaks though...

Anonymous said...

of which bgw was 10% of posts

ant1 said...

BGW - I found that video, like everything the onion does, to be hilarious. Does that stretch my ignorance from boundless to uncountable boundless?

Wes- sorry, had to bite, if anything, it'll help on the comment count.

bikesgonewild said...

...ant 1...straight up ???...no...

...i've got a pretty twisted sense of humor myself at times...

...but our original 'affrontement' had nothing to do w/ parody...n'est-ce pas vrai ???...

Anonymous said...

Late Sunday night you should be fast asleep in your Snuggie.

kale said...

Do you sleep in a Snuggie, or does it demand a new word, like "snug"?

Anonymous said...

Snuggie? That's what happens to me if I accidently buy regular condoms instead of magnums.

ant1 said...

BGW - not parody, but it did involve the use of the cancer concept to make a point, or whatever you want to call kimmage's usage. I wasn't sure if using cancer to make a joke was acceptable or would fit into the same insensitive category.
