BSUSA Friday Fun Quiz!

Pro bicycle racing is pretty easy to ignore here in North America, but it's especially easy to ignore the Tour Down Under, which happens in the middle of the winter in the middle of the night.  However, every so often some news bubbles up this way in the form of a delightful little info-burp, such as this one about The Fred Who Saved The Day by lending Tyler Farrar his bike:


With no team car anywhere near him and the neutral service vehicle already passed, Tooman wheeled his AU$6,000 ($3,000) De Rosa Protos over to the American to see if he wanted to borrow a wheel.

“He said ‘na, a wheel is not going to cut it’,” Tooman told the Adelaide Advertiser.

“Then it went to ‘well, what pedals are you running?’ He was on Speedplay and I was on Shimano, and as soon as that was decided it was just ‘well you might as well just take everything’.

“Then the next question was ‘what size shoe are you?’

“He was a size 43 and I’m a 44, so we swapped shoes, he jumped on my bike, we gave him some water and seeya later.”

What Tooman's story omits is that Farrar's kit was also badly torn in the crash, and in addition to the bike and the shoes he had to borrow Tooman's wardrobe as well.  "What size shorts are those?  What kind of chamois cream do you use?"  And so forth.

“I think if anything, he’s a very approachable, humble guy and the whole team are I’d say.”

No offense to Farrar and his team, but why shouldn't they be approachable and humble?  They're pro bike racers.  On the celebrity scale that's a notch below local TV news meteorologist.


Speaking of meteorology, apparently there's a blizzard heading this way and we're all going to die.


(Shoulda wore a hat.)

Therefore, after taking my seventeen (17) children to the school bus stop I hopped on the ol' WorkCycles to get the proverbial "bread and milk:"


Only to find that the shifter was frozen in the lowest gear:


This is the second time this has happened in the past couple of weeks, and it's only manifest itself recently since until now it's been unseasonably warm all winter.  (You know, global warming we're all gonna die yadda yadda.)  Clearly at some point I need to conduct a thorough examination and figure out exactly what's freezing where, but much more likely what I'll do is spray the shit out of it with WD-40 or similar and hope for the best.

In the meantime though I had to Get The Bread And Milk before the White Death started to fall from the sky, and so I rode to and from the grocery store in my lowest gear, which made riding to and from the mountain bike trails on my artisanal singlespeed as I've been doing all week feel like pushing a 53x11 in comparison.

Still, better to be iced into the lowest gear than the highest, since I live on a pretty steep hill and climbing up it with a saddlebag full of groceries really would have sucked.

In other news, Bicycling are into long-reach (or medium-reach) road brakes all of a sudden:


The most common styles of rim-brake road bike in shops today, and the bikes most often reviewed by Bicycling, use short-reach brake calipers. Short-reach calipers are smaller, so they can be lighter and stiffer, and they look minimalist and sleek.

But short-reach calipers limit tire clearance to about 28mm without fenders; with full-coverage fenders, you've got about 23mm—and that's if you can squeeze those fenders in. Even mainstream Classics/endurance-style bikes like the Cannondale Synapse, Trek Domane, and Specialized Roubaix are designed for short-reach brakes.

I positively adore the medium-reach brakes on my Milwaukee:


Indeed, in a logical universe this is how every road bike would be sold.  So why is Bicycling only talking them up now?  Well, according to them it's because they're "rare:"

The bikes are rare, and so are the brakes. Here are most of the options that exist. In approximately 47 to 57mm reach: Shimano’s BR-650 ($140/pair) and BR-451 ($70/pair), the beautiful Velo-Orange Grand Cru Long Reach Brakeset ($180/pair), TRP’s RG957 ($180/pair), Tektro’s R539($70/pair) and R737($80/pair), and IRD’s B57 ($100/pair).

In 57-plus millimeter reach, there is the IRD B67 ($80/pair), and Tektro R559 ($80/pair). The old school Dia Compe DC810 (61 to 79mm) is around, too, but does not provide the performance of a more modern design. Crazy as it seems, Nashbar has a 40 to 60mm-reach caliper for $40 per set.

Really?  A style of brake sold by multiple companies and in a wide range of prices is rare?

No, the real reason is that now that disc brakes have officially taken over and everyone's already bought in, Bicycling no longer have to hide the existence of these simple and inexpensive brakes from their Fredly audience.  In fact, they're so audacious that they're even admitting that this whole "gravel bike" thing is basically a marketing gimmick:

Honestly, I feel that we’ve done a poor job of highlighting bikes with longer-reach brakes. They're very practical, versatile, and completely in step with the trend towards comfort and exploration that's shown in the recent proliferation of endurance bikes and gravel bikes. A bike with long-reach brakes is simple, light, easy to maintain; it handles and feels like a “normal” road bike. Modern rim brake performance is very good, so I’m not ready to sweep longer reach brakes into the dustbin of history just yet.

Maybe next they'll actually admit in print that press-fit bottom brackets suck.

Lastly, meet the AIRSUPPLY™:


Which is endorsed by none other than the guy who put on Woodstock:


So what is it?  Well, it turns your saddle into a pump or something:


Or else it's a pneumatically-activated dropper post that only works when you're trackstanding, I'm not quite sure:


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 that's positively fantastic, and if you're wrong you'll see reason #1,406 to not bother riding indoors.

Thanks very much for reading, ride safe, and be sure to hop in an SUV and engage in last-minute panic shopping before snow brings the earth to its knees.

there are two valid answers to question 4.

Freddy Murcks said...

The only thing "rare" at Bicycling magazine is originality. They have been shamelessly recycling articles since just about forever. Here's a typical conversation at Bicycling headquarters: "Oh, look at the time. The editorial deadline is in ten minutes? I guess we had better re-run those 'Ride Your First Century' and 'How to Fix a Flat by the Roadside' articles. But Mr. Editor, we ran those articles last month. Don't worry Cub Reporter, Freds are stupid. They won't notice."

Snob, your column was/is the ONLY thing approximately good in that whole magazine.

Captain Obvious said...

Snob - Pass CJ's identity on to Ted K. so that he can send him a love letter. Please.

I just had to say I'm sad "analogous" uses the root word "analogy" instead of "analog".

Vernal Magina said...

I remember that time I stopped into R&A Cycles in the market for a new bike, and knowing bikes, I knew what I was looking for. (I know the shop, and its reputation, really quite well; figured it was enough to guard myself against their rampant douchebaggery just to browse...)

Yet for some reason, the douchebag that felt inclined to show me their selection was *really* compelled to sell a De Rosa for some reason. Not my type of bike or brand I balked, reasonably, keen to move on...

But this guy just wouldn't let his need to sell a De Rosa that day go, like actually saying to one of his colleagues while laughing in my face: "Get a load of this guy, he doesn't want a De Rosa!"

I guess the joke really is on me...

Or maybe I should just buy a De Rosa and move to Australia.

Grump said...

Gimmie a break.
There should be rules.
If you race, short reach brakes are the way to go.
If you don't race, medium or long reach breaks are the way to go.
If you want to pretend that you are a racer, go with those new fangled "dick" brakes.

DB said...

Runner's World has the same deal as Bicycling.
How to run in the winter! Your first 5K! Run your best 10K! Half Marathon Special! How to run your first marathon!
Repeat sequence every year.

Good luck this weekend to all Mid-Atlantic and North Easters. Make sure to heavily tip the pizza delivery guys.

Matt said...

Larger tires, fenders and long reach brakes? Has Grant Peterson taken over Bicycling? It all sounds so....sensible.

Freddy Murcks said...

Vernal - Why don't you want a DeRosa? They're so practical and reasonably priced.

Anyway, there is a shop like that in my town (Contender Bicycles in SLC). I wouldn't buy a tube from those douchebags.

Vernal Magina-

In 1996 I went in to R&A seeking a Derosa. (They were beautiful back then).

Hanging over the counter, I saw a blue-metal-flaked-with-chromed-fork-and-rear triangle Casati . That was it for me. I'm still riding it 19 years later.

$6,000 Australian is not the same as $3,000 American.

At the current exchange rate, Aus6k will get you about $4,200 Americans.

Just a couple of years it would've gotten you $6,300 Americans.

But because 29 is the same thing as 700c and 27.5 is the same thing as 650b they're actually exactly the same amount, just the currency looks different for marketing purposes...

dop said...

That highlight on the after picture didn't show well. Please admire how I touched up the chipped paint with nail polish.

leroy said...

Not to be a contrarian, but Bicycling has been moving away from the "how to change a flat" and "how to lose weight" articles and has improved quite a bit. Fat Cyclist did an interesting interview with editor Bill Strickland recently.

Ride safe all!

And if my dog assures you that you can hop the drawbridge at the Newtown Creek on your morning commute by using a Citibike and a special cape he fashioned from the living room curtains, take it with grain of salt. And a towel.

Don't ask me how I know.

Lieutenant Oblivious said...

Can I get that Air Supply post pump with an integrated Di2 battery and a hidden motor that drives a gear inside my bottom bracket?

I have a question on the quiz. I thought All of the above is the correct answer but clicking that leaves me wanting to know what I missed about Top Gun.

2) 27.5 is to 650b as*:

--29 is to 700c
--12 is to a dozen
--Taint is to scranus
--All of the above

Oh jeez Snobz, that's just too much! Those partial revelations. That is gonna torment me now, in that certain way.

I guess I won't bother asking who CJ is. Actually I'm more curious how you found out such a thing. Tracing IP addresses? You probably know who I am too then. You probably know when I'm naughty and when I'm nice and when I'm sleeping and when I'm awake. It's comforting knowing you're there.

I think Snob's wife works for the NSA and she did some intel for Wildcat.

CommieCanuck said...

He said ‘na, a wheel is not going to cut it’,” Tooman told the Adelaide Advertiser.

“Then it went to ‘well, what pedals are you running?’ He was on Speedplay and I was on Shimano, and as soon as that was decided it was just ‘well you might as well just take everything’.

“Then the next question was ‘what size shoe are you?’, and then, 'How many CCs of EPO do you have left?' and finally, 'send your wife to my hotel room tonight.'"

BikeSnobNYC said...

DB,

CJ provided a lot of personal details making it fairly easy for anybody so inclined (maybe me, maybe a tipster as the case may be) to triangulate him.

--Wildcat Rock Machine

BikeSnobNYC said...

...though as I say I have no plans to "out" him, it's just nice to put a name to a face.

Hey janinedm,

You may have started a new BikeSNOB meme (Wildcat, I'm using BikeSNOB in the collective sense meaning you and the commentariat) . First step, getting others to repeat it, then Happy Unicorn too. Next up is Mr. Snob himself, and quite frankly "Great, who's this asshole?" is at least as good as AYHSMB.

Hey Snob do you, like Ted K and Happy Unicorn, also use scripting on this blog? It just seems to me that there are so many repeated jokes about seventeen (17) kids and scranular conditions I'd think that if if you havent macro scripted that shit you really are wasting a lot of your (my) time.

Anonymous said...

I'm guessing a tipster signed up for Tinder/Grindr and used some sort of match/search function for "Infantile, Drooling, Vain, Seattle Super-Bike-Spazz" and swiped thru the pictures, thus explaining "name to a face". When the tipster came across CJ they didn't swipe left or right, they just wiped.......
