BSNYC Friday Fun Quiz!

Well, another week is over, and so is Fat Cyclist's contest. While I've already been in touch with the smock winners to coordinate the distribution of smocks (via carrier pigeon--I refuse to support the evil shipping industry), it seems that the person who actually "gets" to meet me has yet to reply to the contest organizers. Hopefully he's OK, though I suspect he's probably just underwhelmed by the prospect of meeting me to the point of either complete apathy or sleep.

Speaking of apathy and things that are soporific, I'm pleased to present you with a quiz. As always, study the item, think, and click on your answer. If you're right you'll know it, and if you're wrong, you'll see another skinny hipster on a colorful bike.

Thanks for reading, commenting, and emailing. And remember: pigeon power! I'm even returning that Look via pigeon(s), so if 20-ish pounds of crabon falls on you sometime in the next few days, don't blame me. Blame the evil shipping industry and/or mother nature.

Ride safe this weekend,


--BSNYC/RTMS






You rode past me on your pretty white and purple bike and turned back to say something. I couldn't hear you because the music from my helmet was too loud. I was spacing out a bit, and probably made a weird face at you. I'm pretty curious about what you had to say (I hope it was positive.) I saw you again under the bridge on Jay Street, but you were gone in a flash, opposite my direction. See you out there.

1) What might cause you to hear music in your helmet?

--You're wearing headphones
--You're listening to the band Helmet
--You're insane and suffering from auditory hallucinations
--All of the above



2) There is currently a "duech bag crack head" with a taste for Campagnolo componentry on the loose in New York City.

--True
--False



3) The fender debate is the new helmet debate.


--True
--False



4) The slogan for the "Peacemaker" by Cycles for Heroes is:

--"Fixie über alles"
--"White Makes Might"
--"White State of the Art"
--"Peacemaker: Because Dutch Bikes Suck"



5) Cycles for Heroes also makes a cyclocross bike called the "Pure Blood," and the slogan is "The Rebirth of Race."

--True
--False



6) What is this?

--A "steampunk recumbent"
--A failed Victorian era attempt at a submarine
--A prop from the upcoming live-action movie of "The Simpsons" which will be ridden by C. Montgomery Burns (to be played by Christopher Lloyd)
--Jules Verne's hour record attempt trike




7) The author of this article on how to "straighten" a bicycle wheel lists a number of tools you will need. Which tool is not among them?

--A rubber hammer
--A regular hammer
--A nipple wrench
--A barbecue grill






8) What is this rider demonstrating?

--"how to ride a bike w/o bending your knees"
--"how you stop on a bike w/o brakes"
--"how you skid on a sidewalk w/o hitting somebody"
--"a new fitting technique to determine proper stem and crank arm length"





9) According to a reader more knowledgeable than me, the trick I dubbed a "taint grinder" is actually called:

--a "sack scraper"
--a "roid buffer"
--an "ass jam"
--"Australian hygiene"



***Special cycling zeitgeist bonus question!***


Which newspaper has decided that fixed-gears are over?

--The New York Times
--The Times of London
--The Chicago Tribune
--The International Herald Tribune

hells yeah, i would like to thank everyone who made this moment possible, all the people i annoyed, it's all worth it to earn a spot in the quiz.

Will Handsfield said...

Didn't get lapped.

mikeweb said...

From the wheel straightening article:

"A few good smacks usually bends the rim of the wheel back to close enough. Be a bit careful here as the wheel acts like it is spring loaded, and that it will bounce. A hard smack can result in a hefty bounce, which if you are not aware of the result, could come back and slap you in the face"

This has obviously happened to the author at least 10 times.

I considered getting every answer wrong just to watch that video 10 times. Unfortunately, this is my best quiz result yet.

I only missed one. I don't know why I find these tests so satisfying. I guess its becuase in school no one does a slam dunk when you're right.

i was so happy to see the dalmation that i thought i had gotten the answers right. how could that be the vid for the wrong answer?!

Welcome back Commie, and in with a bang. I'd just popped out back to polish my fenders and then, well you see what happened.

I like the horn on the Steampunk Trike. Anybody know if those are available online?

Matt Boulanger said...

Once in awhile a Google search leads me to something posted on Associated Content (where the wheel straightening advice was posted). Information hosted on that site is almost always categorically wrong. I remember one article about resume writing urging people to use the right homonym, and to NOT get caught saying they pored over a document when they clearly meant poured.

ringcycles said...

Snobbie: of course you're correct. I guess I was blinded by the glare from the horn-figure head-(over)headlight combo. This machine really needs full coverage brass plated fenders to match the other "up grades". That would be "tight".

Surly Bastard said...

Nice quiz ... the Globe Trotter Dunk and the Evel jump were masterpieces. Great week of writing Snob, thanks for all the laughs as well as the Earth Day guilt trip.

Also: just finished reading your Bicycling article and immediately fired all my multi-discipline cycling coaches, ate a 16" pizza, drank a six pack of beer, and put fenders on my TT bike.

I feel better already.

wishiwasmerckx said...

At least on the stolen bike parts, "the post was solid." Wish we could say the same.

Why would a Deuch bag crackhead steal a seatpost anyways? Doesn't he already have a Deuch city bike?

Min said...

The stopping w/o brakes kid had this to say:

"I rarely let people ride the pegs, as flip flop hubs aren't quite as beefy as BMX hubs. I usually just stand on them on downhills. Plus I run brakeless, add another 140 pounds in the mix, not fun, its usually relegated to 8mph on the sidewalk lol. I also just like the look of them"

Then he says "I just love the control that you have.", which I guess is important at 8 mph on the sidewalk.

Matt Boulanger said...

More awesome Associated Content. This is from "How to Restore a Bicycle"

"To begin to restore your bicycle you will need to find replacement parts. Try looking in bicycle magazines, both on and off the net, and bicycle shops in the city where you live. You may even try auction sites like Ebay to find some of the parts you’ll need to completely restore your project."


True, but relatively useless advice.

Vegas Kid said...

In Vegas, it only rains 4" a year. When it rains, we just don't ride. I still rock fenders, though, because we are constantly running over rattlesnakes, lizards, desert tortises, and so on. It makes cleaning the guts off of the bike so much easier.

I, too, enjoyed seeing the Evil Kenevil flashback. When my kids were in elementary school, I used to go to PTA meetings with Robbie Kenevil and his stripper wife.

CommieCanuck said...

After a rough year that saw him making headlines for all the wrong reasons, CommieCanuck just wants to hit the news when he wins a bike race.

Last year saw Canada’s prince of the cobblestones fall back to earth after failing an out-of-competition control for cocaine in late May and then being forced out of the Tour de France.

Commie never faced a racing sanction because cocaine is only considered a banned stimulant if detected during competition. Because he still faces possible charges in a Canadian court, Commie doesn’t want to talk about anything except bike racing.

The new Commie makes his season debut at the Tour of Qatar next week and then returns to the Tour of California in February before another assault on the northern classics.

VeloNews' European correspondent Andrew Hood sat down with commie to talk about BSNYC comments, his growing rivalry with Mark Cavendish and why he’ll never try to win the Tour de France. Here are excerpts from the interview:


VN: You’ve won two Roubaixs and two BSNYCs, do the races ever become routine for you?

TB: They’re hard enough that they’re always interesting. That’s not a problem. They’re the biggest races in the world. Sure, I’ve already won them, but it’s always a new challenge, new rivals. I don’t need anything extra to keep me motivated. I like racing, I like the sport. I try to be focused on the races that I am good at. I still haven’t won San Remo. I’d like to win that at least once and a few more classics.




VN: You’ve achieved most of your major goals already, but no San Remo, are you starting to feel more pressure to win?

TB: I tell you, it’s easier to win Paris-Roubaix than it is to win BSNYC. BSNYC is more like a casino. It’s a big mess in the sprint. It’s possible I'll never win it. I have maybe four or five more possibilities. That’s BSNYC. If it was just a question of legs, I would have won it already three or four times.

(BSNYC -- As a Veteran Observer of the Cycling Scene ("VOCS") and respected source of news, you really should post a little more responsibly.

Surely you didn't mean to sow widespread panic by suggesting that Flying Pigeon bicycles are about to drop from the sky.

I'm not naming names, but some of us don't need additional reasons to spend perfectly good weekends cowering under our beds in the fetal position.)

"Commie's dancing on his pedals in a most immodest way!"

"And that is a big surprise, I really thought his legs had left him behind a few kilometers back, but you see: He's Canadian, the beer store is open, and all of a sudden, they're 1000 meters from the finish."

"Though he's bald, Commie's only 23 years old!"

"Commie is riding like the halcyon days of Eddy Merckx."

"Commie’s added another page to this fairy tale that just keeps going on."

Canuck the Next Casualty in War on Doping
Commie Canuck of Suanier Duval has reportedly tested positive for EPO use during the rest day of the Tour de France. Canuck is but another casualty in the war on doping proclaimed by the UCI and the ASO.

Canuck's B-sample was also confirmed as positive for a homologous blood transfusion, and he was sacked from his Astana team.

How Canuck thought he could get away with such infractions escapes the editor of Cycling Commentary.

Luck E. Seven said...

Renders Fenders Moot-

We realize that you are all excited with yourself from yesterday's gloating, but palping yourself as The Cheese? Don't make this mistake.

The Cheese is a highly coveted title, especially considering its importance in the world of cycling. After your big day yesterday whipping the comment board into a roadbikereview-like bee's nest over the fender issue, I can see that you have some skills.

However, like its yellow jersey of a cousin, The Cheese must be bestowed after grueling numbers of refreshes, hours of punishing comment drafting, and a unilateral acceptance of your cheesiness by certain cheese-granting and governing bodies.

To date, you have not prepared an application for consideration nor have you demonstrated the necessary credentials for such enlistment. Hell, you only came up with a sweet screen name YESTERDAY, fer chrissakes.

I digress. The Cheese cannot, nay SHOULD NOT be merely claimed as you have so carelessly done. That would be as contrived as rubbing a blog for the NYT on buying your way into cycling and training for a climb on the TDF or something.

Don't want to be that guy/girl/anon/whatever, do you?

The True Cheese is better than that.

its about time fixie inc. ("cycles for heroes") got noticed and highlighted a bit more here. i believe their "car scratcher" bar ends were mentioned before but ignored. i recommend you root a bit more around their site, and follow eg. the links to the Karlsruhe fixie "crew".
a staged photo shooting that explores a whole new domain in the regime of the "anticlimatic".

i don't think those racist slogans are serious, though, they're just utterly clueless.
there was a mp3-player company in germany once that made a model in the ibeat series with a black colorway called "ibeat blaxx"

Luck E. Seven said...

I too am disappointed not to have won the contest or even a lounging smock. I suppose that making multiple donations as Anon didn't really increase my chances of winning, tho.

I do hope Red, Ricky, and Jolene have a stunning time on their trip! Doh! Oh well, the chinese-made dutch fender is out of the bag now.

Wow Frank. First you upload your photo to an open-source site, then get upset when some "jagoff" doesn't ask if they can use it on their open-source site, which drove over 1000 views? So much for gratitude.

As the creator of the image, it's actually up to you to mark the image with a copyright notification if you don't wish to have it reproduced without permission. Otherwise, maybe you don't want to post your *wonderful* pictures for all to see on teh intarwebs.

Also, you may want to actually read the fine print called "Terms and Conditions for Use" for Flickr instead of taking one of your commenter's word for what constitutes fair use.

Just sayin'.

Ah, Associated Content. Where else can you find quality bicycle "repairman" tips from fellows like Ralston Heath, who lists his own education/experience as "Been there, Done that and in most cases have a t-shirt to prove it" and whose interests include "esoteric" and "occult."

Gotta love that gold pentagram for an avatar, though. Wonder if he could build a wheel with a pentagram spoke pattern using a "rubber hammer" and a "block of wood."

Nope, if I need socks or sans-a-belt slacks, I'm riding to the Nordstrom's at the mall in White Plains.

which one is a circle and which is a square? and is sausage real?

ant1 said...

I'd say bacon is a cirle. Sausage is tougher to define. Some types are real, while other not.

BACON is a zen thing.

Snob has completely sold out. The posts are later and lamer since he signed on with Bicycling. Even his Red Neckerson posts aren't as good. It's a shame.

hillbilly said...

bummed - "posts are later" is a)wrong, and b)not proof of selling out, but really, thanks for stopping by, you little ray of sunshine, you

Ham salami bacon, my brothas.

Hillbilly,

We used to get posts about 12:45 to 1PM. I pay good non-money for his crap.

All my love from Sunshine

hillbilly said...

sometimes, and often we would at 2...hey, this could be even dumber than the great fender debate!

Bummed,

Can you please supply your data to confirm Snob's dawdling as of late. I'm sure that we can correlate it to either his floor manager at IKEA catching on to Snob's fecklessness during the afternoon, or the increasing quality of his Lounging Herbs with his Lance Armstrong connect.

Oh, and everyone knows that Red is ghostwritten by Lance.

alls i know is i always go out for a smoke at 130, for years now, and just as often as not, snob had not posted yet by then. hardcore data.
