BSNYC Friday Fun Quiz!

Remember how like there was an article and a video on the New York Times website about stealing bicycles and how on Tuesday I posted a blog post about the article and video that was on the New York Times website?  Remember that?  Well, a reader tells me that one person in Chicago is finally Doing Something About It and will help you find your stolen bicycle cycle for the exchangement of monies:




I locate and repossess stolen bikes. Email today to get your bike back - $99 (In Thieves Faces)
Date: 2012-03-15, 8:50AM CDT
Reply to: [deleted]


Hi, I am sorry to hear that your baby has been stolen and I'm willing to help you find and repossess your bike for a fee. The more information you can provide me with will increase the chances of getting your bike back. How fast you respond is crucial as well. If your bike was stolen over a weekend then don't wait until Monday morning to report it to me.


Most locks have protection plans and if you keep the receipt for for bike you can get reimbursed. If you have a highly customized bike it is much more difficult to get reimbursed. 


My service is like a personal investigator for bike theft. We know the city can't do much because there are much more serious crimes being committed. In response I am willing to help find the thief that stole your bike. I conduct and interview and gather any information I can about the bike and try to establish a timeline in order to figure out where the bike is and how to get it back. This can be a process that can be easy if thieves are not crafty, but can be more difficult if the criminals work in teams . Either way I can find out where it is or how you can get it back and only ask that you buy me a coffee during our interview. There are no guarantees that I can get it back, but if I an determine who is stealing bikes in an area than the crime will stop. Most importantly we'll be sending a message to the thieves that we are not taking it lying down. The more often people are nonchalant about bike theft, the more it will occur with out slowing.


Thanks for your time. I hope to help you locate and get your bike back. Namaste. 



Also, this self-styled bike-specific private investigator was thoughtful enough to include a picture of himself:


It's life imitating art imitating life imitating art.

In any case, I contacted him immediately because I've been looking all over for my own stolen bike:

(Forwarded by a reader.)

It's laterally inverted and vertically castrating, and the thief should be easy to identify since his crotch will look like he tried to do some "manscaping" with a lawn edger.

Meanwhile, recently I also mentioned militaristic cycling as an alternative to vehicular cycling:


As it turns out, this approach isn't just for the Lycra set, and another reader informs me that militaristic cycling is compatible with "cycle chic" as well:



I strongly believe that it's images like these of people riding happily with weapons that will finally result in mainstream acceptance for cycling in America.  This is because when we're introduced to any new activity we're naturally skeptical, and our first question is always, "Yeah, but can I do it with guns?".  After all, our right to bear arms was handed down to us by God, and if He didn't want us to carry guns then He wouldn't have drafted the Second Amendment.  He also wouldn't have invented the handlebar-mounted gun rack:

Now that's a cockpit.

And now, 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, and if you're wrong you'll see a typical day in France.

Thanks very much for reading, ride safe, and ride happy.

(Mark Cavendish smirking as "Li'l Cav" gets an audience with the Queen.)

1) According to Mark Cavendish, why is Milan-San Remo like an opera?

--"There's a beginning part, a middle part, and an end."
--"It ain't over until the fat lady sings."
--"It's really long and really boring and I don't understand any of it."
--"Mario Cipollini likes to watch it naked while eating prosciutto."







(Fore!  Unleash your inner golfer with Rapha's new Fred flippers.)

2) Rapha's new $450 shoe is made of:

--Goat leather
--Yak leather
--Buffalo scranus
--A proprietary upper called "Raphite" that smells of crotch and hibiscus




3) Rapha is also introducing this smart new $250 cycling hat.

--True






(Vehicular Fredboarding)

4) Technically, the correct name for Fredboarding is:

--StickBoarding
--SpikeBoarding
--StaffBoarding
--Vehicular SpearFishing







5) What is this rider doing?

--Farting money
--Launching his twin "butt rockets"
--Giving the humble people of a small African nation a much-needed lesson in douchery
--All of the above






6) Why is is this goat nonplussed?

--It is riding a computrainer
--It just ate a Diet Coke can instead of a regular Coke can
--It is being forced to live in urban San Francisco like a common hipster
--It is about to become a Rapha shoe





("Git back here with them feet!")


7) Yak leather contains residual pheromones that can cause bovines to attempt to mate with your feet.

--True
--False



***Special Vehicular Cycling-Themed Bonus Question***


(Vehicular squatting: because benches are a conspiracy designed to make us forfeit our right to the sidewalks.)

If you want to be a vehicular cyclist, the first thing you should probably do is get yourself:

--A full-face helment
--A pair of rear-view mirrors
--A DayGlo jumpsuit
--A recumbent trike

That's a hell of a vehicular cyclist.

I don't know why the idea of a goat being nonplussed by eating a *diet* coke can is hilarious, but I was gasping for air like a goat with its head stuck in a fence.

I totally "nailed" the yak leather-related questions. Not sure what that says about me.

Seeing the photos of people riding with guns makes me wonder why there have been no post apocalyptic movies made that feature bikes. Wouldn't bikes be more practical than cars and motorcycles in Mad Max? Wouldn't The Road have been better if he was hauling his stuff with an Xtracycle rather than pushing a shopping cart?

Billy said...

Oh, and thanks for letting me know carrying my assault rifle on a Dutch-style city bike isn't a major fashion faux-pas!

I'm planning to get one of those city bikes soon. Opus up in America's plaid tam-o-shanter makes some nice ones.

@Anon @ 1:41 PM:

Stephen King's "The Stand" features quite a bit of bicycle riding. Unfortunately it's the big man-child idiot that does most of it, whereas the cool kids use Mad Max style trucks or motorcycles.

There's also a series of post-apocalyptic books by S.M. Stirling that feature a lot of bicycles.

A couple years back I participated in huge a rec ride and found myself behind someone with a handgun on their hip. With each pedalstroke that thing would point right at me. I quickly pulled off. Who knows if that idiot even had the safety on? Why did they feel the need to carry on a ride with 10,000 other cyclists?

"It was 2002. Just after Gent-Wevelgem. While relaxing in a Flanders Hotel I was entertaining Flemish Siamese Triplet sisters when I noted that two were blond and one had an afro. Very curious. They begged Cipo for more but after the exertions of Gent-Wevelgem 2002 I had only the energies to satisfy them twice each. They begged for more. And why not?"

Panty investigator said...

If anyone stole your panties, I can help you find them. Please send me a picture of your panties as soon as possible, preferably a picture of you wearing them, and the sooner the better. We know the police can't spend time looking for stolen panties because they're too busy tracking down bike thieves. Many panties come with anti-theft warranties, so if you kept the recepit, you can get a refund, but if your panties are highly customized, this is more difficult. I will conduct an extensive panty investigation to see if I canlocate your stolen panties and have them returned to you. If I am successful, all I ask is to be allowed to wear the panties once myself. We will still be sending a message to the panty thieves that they can't get away with it forever. Thanks for wearing panties. Namaste.

I don't know about Mad Max--I'm sure Mel Gibson thinks bicycles are for pussies and Jews, both of which he hates, but Mark Twain used bicycles in the nineteenth century's version of the post- (or pre-?) apocalyptic novel A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court, where knights ride to the rescue on bicycles.

@CommieCanuck:

What the heck kind of stapler are you referring to? As far as I know, my red swingline would still be allowed across the border, even if I had it in a concealed holster.

crosspalms said...

If I had highly customized panties and somebody stole them, I think instead of calling the police or the Craigslist guy I'd just go out west and sit in the rain. Hope it brightens up for you, BGW, it's sunny and 79 in Chicago.

I would say don't go giving Rapha any ideas, but then they're English and don't have any idea about guns.

Now that's a cockpit.

@bgw - snow on Mt Tam, eh? Last time that happened I rode up to have a look, but it got rather slippery above the amphitheatre.
I have been getting my fixed gear out, just like the East Coast hilpsters, but that's only because I just cleaned the road bike and can't be arsed to clean it again.
I'm up for four or five hours on fixed on Sunday if you want. I will be crossing the bridge a little before eight with my red rain jacket and English spelling.

..."...It's bad enough I yell at drivers, it'd be way more uncivil to plug them."...not necessarily...
