Over The Bars and Through the Woods...

As you may have gathered from last Friday's post, I took advantage of the spring-tastic weather by slipping out for a bicycle ride.  It was still overcast in the morning when we rolled out, but by the time we reached WASP base camp the sun had begun to disperse the clouds like protesters at a Trump rally:


(WASPs tend to assemble at country clubs.)

I mention all this by way of a public service announcement.  See, owing to the slight dampness I had opted for a bike with fenders, pictured here on a different and far wetter day:


These particular fenders, as it happens, do not have those plastic breakaway mounting thingies at the eyelets:


Unlike, say, the fenders on my old Scattante, which are sitting in a corner now because they wouldn't fit on the Milwaukee:


In case you don't know, the purpose of these brackets is so if something gets stuck in your fender it pops out instead of jamming up your front wheel and sending you flying over the bars.

Well, guess what happened on Friday?

Fortunately I was nearly home when the incident occurred and I've only got a busted digit to show for it, which means I got off very easy when you consider all the other injuries I might have incurred.

And most importantly, my middle finger remains intact, so I can still flip people off.

So what I'm saying is make sure your front fender has those breakaway brackets so you don't wind up having to change baby diapers with one hand.

This has been a BSNYC/RTMS Pubic Service Announcement:


Speaking of rules, while you should make sure your fenders have safety brackets, you can pretty much ignore every single one of these:


In fact I'd go so far as to argue that the more of these rules you're breaking the better a cyclist you are, since there's a direct correlation between adhering to "The Rules" and being a terminal Fred.

In particular, this rule strikes me as being particularly foolish:

Rule #31 // Spare tubes, multi-tools and repair kits should be stored in jersey pockets.

Why?  From a practical standpoint, following this rule takes up jersey real estate that might better be used for carrying fuel, stowing shucked arm warmers, and so forth.  And from an aesthetic standpoint since when is having bulging, saggy jersey pockets sartorially appealing?  Indeed, I'd go so far as to say that overloaded jersey pockets are second only to chainring tattoos when it comes to "charity ride chic:"


No offense, of course:


("None taken.")

And let's not forget that, when you go flying over your bars because something got stuck in your non-breakaway fender, the last thing you need is to land on a jersey pocket with a multitool in it.  (Unless you want a "tramp stamp" in the shape of an Allen key.)

Nevertheless, here's a new Kickstarter project based entirely on this "Rule #31:"



Yeah, because this is cooler than using a saddlebag somehow:


It's like a pencil case for Freds:



And everyone knows only the nerds used pencil cases.  If you were cool you grubbed a writing implement from the dork next to you at the beginning of class, assuming you even bothered to write in school.  Sure, you're a giant loser now, but it's worth it for the air of insouciance you projected in sixth grade.

In other product news, meet the "HexLox:"



No, HexLox is not some sort of accursed salmon that tastes great on a bagel:


(HëxLöx)

It's actually a new component theftproofing kit that lets you use your existing bolts:


And it seems like a pretty good idea, too...just as long as you're the sort of person who's good at holding onto keys.

Indeed, if only Femke had used the HexLox then maybe the UCI wouldn't have been able to open her bottom bracket and find the motor in her bike--though now she's just saying "screw it" and quitting the sport altogether:


"After consulting with my lawyers and my family, I have decided to discontinue my defence at the hearing in Aigle," she said, according to Sporza.be.

"I have decided for myself to stop cyclo-cross," she said, adding that the public had already decided her case anyhow. "The costs of the meeting in Switzerland will be too high for me. An acquittal is impossible, the bike was in my pit zone."

This is tremendously disappointing since it deprives us of the potentially humorous spectacle of a hearing, though at the same time I suppose nobody should be surprised that someone lazy enough to use a motorized bicycle would also be too lazy to mount a defense.

Lastly, here's Andy White of Fyxomatosis on how to trackstand:




Egads!  No brakes, no helmet, hands off the bars?  In Australia!?!  That's like $2,000 in fines!!!

He's probably in prison even as you read this.

We may have to do a Kickstarter to bail him out.

Note 21. (Paragraph 128) Since many people may find paradoxical the notion that a large number of good things can add up to a bad thing, we illustrate with an analogy. Suppose Mr. A is playing chess with Mr. B. Mr. C, a Grand Master, is looking over Mr. A’s shoulder. Mr. A of course wants to win his game, so if Mr. C points out a good move for him to make, he is doing Mr. A a favor. But suppose now that Mr. C tells Mr. A how to make ALL of his moves. In each particular instance he does Mr. A a favor by showing him his best move, but by making ALL of his moves for him he spoils his game, since there is not point in Mr. A’s playing the game at all if someone else makes all his moves.

Ted K. said...

The situation of modern man is analogous to that of Mr. A. The system makes an individual’s life easier for him in innumerable ways, but in doing so it deprives him of control over his own fate.

Ah yes, the bike/fender junction. Thanks for your enlightening anecdote and analysis. Here in God's temperate Wolkendschungel, the biggest problem is getting them to not rattle to bits and fall on the side of the road in pieces after thousands of winter Kms. I had always assumed that industry made them flimsy just to keep up business. Now I will have to find new reasons to hate them as it is clear they are actually looking out for me....

janinedm said...

John L, it's how dopers think, right? Them and salmon. "Of course x is bad, but I'm an exception because reasons.

Also, I rode over to a baby shower in New Jersey on Saturday and got to experience the pageantry of the GWB on a 60 degree day. Those Velominati might be onto something with the prohibition against shorts being any color but black. There was a guy with white shorts and a fenders bike and his shorts were gross. I was trying to take it easy because I wanted to arrive fresh for the shower, but I had to pass him and his baked in butt dirt.

Finally, and this is almost too stupid top even air in public, but I think one of my regular Cat 6 competitors has taken to motor doping. He used to be laughably slow on his road bike (mind you, I did not care that he was slow, but he was so slow and joylessly focused. shoot, you're riding a bike, enjoy yo'self). Anyway, he's been dropping me like a stone lately despite continuing to have Kat Moss's calves and I smell a rat.

Very Slim Pickins said...

Sorry to hear about the injury. I suppose a good outcome would be a massive swelling of the finger, then you can give people a Big Bird.

In cycling news, Saturday saw the "Grant's Tomb Criterium". Over 500 Fred's roaring round and round where Grant is trying to get some rest and Riverside Church. Ulysses must have rolled over in his grave.

While I'd agree that almost all of "the Rules" are pure entertainment, Rule #5 (HTFU) is most certainly anti-Fred. Fred would never expose his crabon Specialized to a drop of rain or a temperature below 72F.

WCRM, I hope the finger heals soon. I badly jammed my middle finger once (hey, I was playin' American football!); my buddies still chide me on that perpetual FU the splint had me give everyone. This, too, shall pass.

A few years ago, I thought I was so clever to leave a few locks at strategic bike racks here and there. They're still there, rusting forlornly, and I've no idea where the keys are!

Thanks to autocorrect, I have to amend my earlier post. Senior white shorts had a fenderless bike, hence the mud butt. And maybe-motor guy has calves like Kate Moss or 2005-era Nicole Richie.

Dayglo cycling jersies, lycra pants and clown cycling shoes don't make us look dorky enough. It's much better to jam tools, food, tubes and other flotsam into the rear pockets of a jersey. I'm starting a kickstart for a narrow backpack sort of thing, with some pockets for tools and food, and who knows, maybe a water bladder for drinking. It may catch on.

Near the end of the Imabummer Manifesto, Ted summarizes why he deserves a serious prison beatdown:

231. Throughout this article we’ve made imprecise statements and statements that ought to have had all sorts of qualifications and reservations attached to them; and some of our statements may be flatly false. Lack of sufficient information and the need for brevity made it impossible for us to formulate our assertions more precisely or add all the necessary qualifications.

Seriously Fuckhead Ted??! You mean you admit that your tedious wishy-washy bullshit is a pantload of wishy-washy bullshit, and you think it suffers from brevity? Well Fuck you. Fortunately Big Louie, the 3rd shift prison guard on cell block D was agreed to administer a combination waterboarding with a batch of particularly pungent Pruno, and your standard splintered broom handle job for a mere $40, cuz he's basically in agreement anyway. So pledge what you can for the satisfaction of knowing a sadistic moron is getting what he deserves.

The Rules are 99% Pure Fredness - we will never be fast or be good or even enjoy what we do but by god we are going to pretend to ourselves that we look awesome like a bunch of old dopers that we idolize for being better at cheating than their contemporaries.

I think they have their No Saddlebags rule because they believe that 100% of life must be spent in imitation of pro cyclists, who of course never get groceries and always have a neutral support car. Presumably these imitation pros just call a cab when they get a flat because they're too cool to carry a spare tube.

Lieutenant Oblivious said...

I've often thought that all of us bike-cyclists except maybe the real pro's should be required to obtain a cycling attire license. This license number would be required for any kit purchase. To get a license you'll need to provide age, height, weight, sex and pictures. Go into a bike shop, want to buy those shorts or jersey, show your license. Buying online, enter your license number. Buying a gift for someone, you'll need to provide their license number, or no purchase. The license number would prevent people from buying inappropriate cycling kit. Shop sales person would just say "I'm sorry, but you're not approved for that kit, I can't sell it to you. Online, you get a message that your order cannot be approve, please try again.

A bit totalitarian perhaps, but it will eliminate white shorts on guys, seeing 20 pounds of shit in a 10 pound sack, primal wear anything, Pink Floyd and Three Stooges jerseys. I would gladly submit to a license for the greater good of the cycling community.

Fenders are for "woosies". "Real" men don't mind cleaning their bike after a rain ride. Same goes for the "Stripe of manlyhood" that goes all the way up their back.



Roille Figners said...

Rule #1: Your silly site about frivolous unnecessary rules should load within 5 seconds. But at least they put all the rules on one page instead of trying to generate clicks.

Rule #2: Do not make frivolous rules. Avoid those who make frivolous rules. Rule-makers attract rule-followers, and you know how they are.

Some people just aren't comfortable with an environment that has no rules to follow. The door to the cage is wide open but they close it, locking themselves inside. It's like a Ted K wet dream/nightmare!

Those silver fenders are Planet Bike baybee. Best cheap accessories for the People, and apparently they thought of your safety too! (I didn't know what the plastic deal was for until now.)

Frickus Rungus said...

Wildcat,

I can empathize... Many moons ago I dislocated a finger and tore one of the tendons from the bone whilst crashing on my biekcicle. I was in a group ride on a windy day and the guy in front of me decided that he had had enough and sat up without warning. My front wheel overlapped his back wheel, then slid up and over when the tires made contact and I landed on my finger. No fender criminality was suspected. I remember that I could ride with my finger in a cast, but the bumps hurt a lot...

Hope you heal fast so you can get back to two finger typing, instead of just the one!

Dave said...

On the W&OD (where no motorized vehicles of any kind are allowed) I recently saw, on the same day, an electric unicycle, probably a "Mobbo", and later I was passed by a full-on electric bike not even pretending to be a normal cyclist. And when I caught him briefly at a light, he had the nerve to turn and look at me with the Lance Dominator stare.

President Trump no doubt will convert all bike trails and lanes into no-rules, motorized Rollerball-style highways, with prizes for high mayhem scores. Can't wait.

I kind of dig the HexLox, actually seems like a practical kinda thing. Who would've thunk something practical would ever show up on a site like Kickstarter...

But I prefer these two alternate definitions for the name --

Vis a vis BSNYC's salmon extrapolation, how's about it's the curse that fells a bike salmon whereupon they get hit by a car a block after they pass you.

Or, if you like, the Seattle version: the curse a bike salmon puts on you as they pass you with an upraised middle finger extended for your perusal.

Fenderstop? I was thinking about the over the bar / rear wheel lockup action on the Fondon't with my cobbled together Randanoouah. 650b Lefol fenders are meant to stay put! I have old Bluemels on some of my others. They're so brittle and taped together that they'd just shatter with no resistance.

Yikes, I actually took a screwdriver/hammer to those stupid break-away things on the last set of fenders I bought because I couldn't stand the tiny amount of rattle/play that they added. There's a normal fender mount under there if you break all the plastic off. I almost broke a finger during this process, so I'm figuring I have already suffered their wrath and won't have any more issues. I always figured the fender itself would break long before it would be able to chuck me over the bars. Have you lost some weight or is my grasp of physics not what I thought it was?

Trevor said...

I've been just using hot glue in my Allen bolt heads as a deterrent. Thief will hopefully see something in the bolt and move on to another easier to steal pieces off of bike. The hot glue is easy enough to pick out should you have to adjust something mid ride and no worries about a key.

I see that WCRM is a Gigantic Pussy Weenie Hypocrite. He has, on multiple occasions, insisted on following Velominati Rule #37. A rule I steadfastly break every time I don any sort of headgear that include chin straps.

I also followed rule #40 this morning as I swapped my studded tires for tires more suitable for the early spring weather we've been subjected to. Usually I pay no attention to that, but something deep down inside me, or someplace else, told me to align the tire labels to the valve stem holes.

I actually like the teeny tiny socket cap screw lock.

Dick Breaks said...

I have read the Velominati rules and even in the deepest throes of nuevo Fredism I realized that most of them were nothing more than a bunch of silly fashion rules formulated by douchey douchebags who care more about the way that they look than they care about riding their bikes. If I wanted to be offensive, I would surely describe the rules as being 'faggoty.'

Serial Retrogrouch said...

The key to safety when it comes to fenders is size. size does matter. and more important than size is space between it and tire. basically, you want a really loose fit... but tight at the eyelets.

A tight fit should only be reserved for when a filth prophylactic is not needed. Just remember to lube.

WIZ !! JAY said...

Sorry about your accident Snob. Ironically, I should have seen the foreshadowing all over the road, written as close to the right side curb as safely possible, and warned you of impending doom in the comments on Friday. I was hit by a car Thursday night - idiot admitted he was 'not paying attention at all' after literally turning left directly into me, crushing my left foot and toes between the bumper and my pedal, to the extent my pedal broke, pierced through the sole of my shoe, sock, and absurd amount of lint. Flew about 10 feet after putting a dent in the fender and breaking off the driver mirror (didn't need it anyway). A splint, 10 stitches, potential tendon repair, and a weekend of Candy Crush later, I'm doing ok. Driver seemed drunk, but was still talking to the po po when I left in the meat wagon. I'm mostly pissed because I had to cancel my normal Friday pedicure and may need therapy to cope with the fact I'll never be a foot model. :-(

Nuts to the Velominati, and specifically to Rule #82:


Close the gap.

Whilst riding in cold and/or Rule #9 conditions replete with arm warmers, under no circumstances is there to be any exposed skin between the hems of your kit and the hems of your arm warmers. If this occurs, you either need to wear a kit that fits you properly or increase the size of your guns. Arm warmers may, however, be shoved to the wrists in Five and Dime scenarios, particularly those involving Rule #9 conditions. The No-Gap Principle also applies to knee and leg warmers
