Coming Apart at the Hems: Excessive Panting

Even though I throw together (I tend to "throw things together" instead of "curate" them) a cycling-themed blog, very few companies take the time to notify me of their new products. Still, once in awhile somebody does take the time to copy me on a press release, and for one glorious moment I feel special and legitimate because I know I'm reading something only a select few people are important enough to receive. For example, I recently learned of a "miracle increasing solution" that will "make your pecker glorious." I also just found out about a "CUSTOM KEYCHAIN FOR FIXED RIDERS :-)" that can be "customised as you like:"

This keychain comes all the way from Lyon, which is in France--a country in which Greg LeMond is a "rock star" and the roadies consume pâté like it's Gu. Not only does this fixed-gear-specific keychain allow you to express your derision for precipitation, but it also allows you to share your gear ratio with other riders:

This is actually something that could come in handy, since each group of cyclists has its own customary salutation, and for fixed-gear and singlespeed riders that salutation is "What gear are you running?" This way, you can just point to your keychain instead of squandering costly syllables. Incidentally, other common cycling salutations include:

"What pressure are you running?" (Cyclocross)
[Scowl and avoid eye contact] (Road riding)
"Where did you buy your mankini?" (Triathlon)

Unfortunately for cyclocrossers, roadies, and triathletes, none of these greetings are available. Then again, cyclocrossers, roadies, and triathletes don't carry their keys on the outside like fixed-gear riders do. Instead, they simply leave them in their race bags, or they keep them in their jersey pockets, or they secret them in an orifice so as not to spoil the lines of their skinsuits. (This partially explains the scowling and avoiding eye contact.) Consequently, any message emblazoned on a keychain would remain unseen. In any case, besides sharing your feelings about rain and your gear ratio, you can also broadcast the following:

Apparently in France, fixed-gear riders like to have sex with cars, which is something they share in common with American tourists:

Yes, the "myth" of the "ugly American" is not a myth at all; we really do travel to Europe and hump police cars.

Just keep in mind that if you do buy one of these keychains and you want people to actually read the message on it, you should make sure it does not get lost among the vibrant print of your pants, the enormous logo on the waistband of your underpants, and the inviting shape and positioning of your posterior:

Actually, given the fact that fixed-gear riders almost always expose their underpants while riding, this company probably would have been better off selling customized elastic waistbands. That way, "hipsters" could coordinate their underwear with their gear ratios, which would not only be clever, but would also provide for ready-made excuses at alleycats. ("I'd ride faster, but my bigger gear is in the wash.") As it is, the model is wearing a pair of "Insane" underpants. I had never heard of Insane underpants, though I found their website using a popular search engine and they are active in cycling sponsorship:

("All You Haters Supplement My Income")

By the way, I'm not sure "Insane" is a great name for a brand of underpants. I can understand trying to be playfully seductive, but implying that what's going on in the wearer's crotchal region is downright "Insane" just seems off-putting. If you go home with someone whose genitals are "insane" you can probably expect to find dreadlocked pubic hair, an inordinate amount of piercings, and at least one STD. Getting to "third base" with someone who has an insane genitalway could be like sticking your hand into a sweatsock full of broken glass. These underpants are a warning, not an invitation. Then again, that may be some people's idea of "Physical Culture:"

I was disappointed to see that the Times omitted Insane from the test, though I guess it's possible Insane don't do seamless. (They probably do crotchless, but the Times would doubtless shy away from that kind of testing.) I was also disappointed to find that, in the recent bicycling pants gear test (forwarded to me by a reader), there was not one pair that featured a pink zebra print:


Yes, more and more companies are making bicycle-specific casual pants, and here is the "origin story" of this hot retail segment:

UNTIL recently, any pants could be considered biking pants: all you had to do was roll up the cuffs or wrap some Velcro bands around your calves. But for people who commute by bicycle, those were not ideal solutions. Spending too long on a bike in regular trousers can wear out the seat of the pants. The rear pockets may rip from too many miles carrying a U-lock and the cuffs may get scarred with grease or shredded from encounters with the chain.

I have nothing against bicycle pants, though I do worry that their proliferation indicates that the lines of defense are retreating from the bike to the body. Why is the fact a U-lock can rip your pockets a reason to buy a new wardrobe? Why not just keep the lock in your bag or carry it on your bike? If you're having a problem with greasy and shredded cuffs, why not install a chainguard of some kind? If your pants are getting filthy from road spray, why not just use fenders? If the seat of your pants is wearing out, why use a saddle with a worn leather cover, or with rivets, or with embroidery?

Of course, the answer to all of these things is obvious--"vintage" racing saddles are cool, and U-lock brackets, chainguards, and fenders are not. It's much cooler apparently to migrate everything to your body by using special clothes and various holsters so people think you've come to read the meter until they notice the little logos which show that your work clothes have an extra zero on the price tag. The other thing to consider is that you only need to purchase one set of commuter accessories for your bike, but even the most dedicated schlub (and I consider myself a dedicated schlub) can't wear the same pants every single day. It's much more cost-effective to set up one commuting-specific bike than it is to purchase a week's worth of new commuting-specific clothing.

That said, as a schlub, I don't "curate" my cycling wardrobe; instead, I "throw it together," and as such I'm probably not qualified to comment on bicycling pants. If they work well and you like the way they look, by all means throw a pair of bicycling pants over your seamless and/or crotchless Insane underwear. You might find yourself so exuberantly comfortable that you totally slay a backwards wheelie, as you can see in this new video which has sent the entire fixed-gear freestyle world into a collective flat-brimmed tizzy:

Joel Weston from MACAFRAMA on Vimeo.

Apparently this is some kind of breakthrough, but to me something boring is no more interesting when it's performed in reverse. I know this to be true because I tried. As a test, I actually listened to that 30 Seconds to Mars song backwards, but it still sucked--though I did discover subliminal messages that alternately implored me to conform and to add the movie "Prefontaine" to my Netflix queue.

If the fixed-gear freestyle community is wondering what to name this trick, I would suggest calling it the "Hem," which, like this wheelie, is simply "Meh" backwards.

I live along a parade route that hosts THE 4th of July parade. Every year since he was able to ride a bike, my nephew has participated. Each year he has rides a more elaborate bike--no, that's not quite right each year he rides more elaborately. One year he rode the mile and half from his house past mine in full wheelie, the next backwards, and so forth. I mention this because the Macaframa vid put me in mind of what I say to his Dad each year as he rides past-->that's a valuable skill.

i think i might start schluffing, since eddy merckx does it:

"The cheerful and chatty Merckx also didn't seem too keen on actually leading the trip. As guides from Central Park Bike Tours shouted for the group to walk their bikes on the sidewalk, Merckx jumped up onto his left pedal and weaved through the crowd, prompting most of his fellow riders to do the same, much to the guides' exasperation."

Thanks Snobby but I manage to solve the commuting to the office in pants vs. bicycle drivetrain conflict with either a $5 reflecto/velcro cuff retaining thing when it's cold and dark, or by tucking my pant cuff into my sock if it's just cold.
However, if you autograph the Scattante chainguard I'd happily "curate" it on my shelf of used cylcling celebrity, next to Marthy Nothstein's stem, Fred Rodriguez's water bottle and Bobby Julich's fork.

I was surprised by the title of that New York mag article on Merckx- "Greatest Cyclist of All Time (and a Hundred of His Fans) Take In Central Park Loop". Not that I disagree, but that seems, 'ya know, kinda 'un-LA' (being un-LA is like being un-PC in that they both can result in legal action).

But then in the article I noticed that they mention that LA himself calls Merckx the greatest of all time, so they made sure that they got immunity from 'un-LA-ness'.

People should stop trying to get cycle clothes that look normal, instead they should recognise that "normal" is what society chooses: running shoes, sweatshirts, all now mainstream.

If people stopped trying to get "normal" clothes to work and instead start wearing waterproof trousers cut down to 3/4 with a hi-viz top when they go out as well as to work, it will become mainstream, and those people who spend $200 on a pair of Rapha trousers will recognise that it was a daft thing to do.

Frankly I'm surprised that you let the fact that the key chain is being utilized to hold a single key pass you unmentioned. I generally think of key chains of serving the purpose of keeping multiple keys together and the reason why a janitor's keys migrate to his belt loop is because he has too many to fit in his pocket comfortably. The advertisement fits the practical use by hipsters perfectly since they have adopted something from the working class unnecessarily as per usual. Most of them don't even have the two keys that come with having an automobile and a residence. As they probably work from home doing freelance graphic design they also don't have an office key they need to keep track of. While rappers often brag about how many "keys" they hold (often in comparison to janitors in fact,) the hipster key chain flaunts their status in almost the exact opposite way but to the same effect. Truly remarkable.

Here's why I commute in cycling gear and change at the office (depending on the day, I have either a 6 or a 15 mile commute each way, sometimes a 11... whatever).
1) I'm a klutz, and prone to getting dirty from falling stupidly, getting schmutz sprayed on my butt, and chest (as happened today).
2) My work clothes are very nice. And not comfy to ride in. They bunch up in the wrong places, and I'd be worried about things getting messed up.
3) I don't want to smell at the office. If I work up a sweat on en route to the office(I have some serious climbs on the way in) and then stink for the rest of the day.
4) Have you ever ridden 10 miles+ in an underwire bra with D-cups? Yeah. Didn't think so. So, at the very least, I'm wearing a sports bra.

For women, Sheila Moon does have some nice options for ride/work wear. I just have to resolve the being broke part before I can invest in it. ;)

Mr. Mugshot:

The reason I did not palp grime-brows in NYC is because I came out of the office one night to find that someone had needed my rack more than I did -- 4 bolts to remove it, vs. the one for the seat. Another time, I came out to find that someone had cut almost all the way through the chain locking the seat to the frame. In short, I am not independently wealthy, nor have I connections in the accessory world who will send me limitless grime-brows as I spread the gospel of fenders to the riders of NYC. My solution was to wear a kilt for riding, thereby protecting my shorts from grime and assuring that I would always have a changing room for donning my corporate uniform.

Now I have left NYC for a paradise where cyclists leave Lefty-adorned bikes unlocked while they sit down for a slice and beer, so I don't have an excuse for being browless. Unless i can convince myself that the fenders will clog up with all the snow.
