It's a Snob-a-Palooza, or maybe a plethora of Snobbies, today.
Enjoyed, all these posts and still with the parenting duties!

Glad I saved my Wednesday weed to dull the disappointment.

Hmmmph, so this was why my dog was singing "Flat bottom peds you make the rocking world go round."

He's just so weird sometimes.

Ride safe all.

Bunny-hopping on flat pedals isn't really that hard. Just rotate the pedals so your toes are pointed down-- to lock your body against the handlebars-- and hop.

Lieutenant Oblivious said...

If I watch that safety video a few more times I'll be able to speak FRED in Korean (?). That video is prime for a Fred makeover a la the many takes on the Hitler Downfall Bunker scene with different subtitles that are on YouTube.

lanternrouge said...

Way back near the broom wagon cuz I actually watched the safety video.


Yes, I have no life.

Lindsay Buckingham sings that song? He sure liked his makeup back then.

I use MKS BM-7 BMX pedals with olde fashionedy toe clips. They gimme everything I need, and you can get them in red anodized too, which is most important.

I got some 1/2 inch red anodized KKT pedals to put on my 3 speed Schwinn Corvette. Maybe next year's FonDon't rig. [\\insert Snobby's >>Just Kidding .jpg>>]

Joe McNamara said...

Flat pedals and toe clips. Any shoes you want.

bieks said...

I only have one bike with clipless pedals right now. Wow, that just blew my mind.

Now if I go through my parts box, that's a completely different story.

Groucho Marx said...

I asked the woman in the boathouse for a flat bottom, but she didn't have one.

Anonymous said...

Lol, bikesnob can't bunnyhop. Prolly can't olly, either.
There is no such thing is a skater Fred. They are called posers.

Chazu said...

Flat bottom girls make the rowboat world go round.

I want to ride my bicycle. I want to ride my bike. I want to ride.... etc.

Every day is Wednesday at Floyd's of Leadville.

Now I need to return to living the theme of that Lindsey Buckingham music video.

Oh, and, reCAPTCHA just asked me identify all the cars.

I wood, too.

Anon 4:08pm,

Why would you think I can't bunnyhop? I was bunnyhopping bikes before you were born.

I can ollie too, but I really suck at it.

dancesonpedals said...

No matter how stupid we may feel while riding (falling down clipped in, soaked crotch at work, trigeek pratfalls etc), there will always be riders who look even more stupid. God loves them and looks after them.

You tell him, Snob. "I was in Bagdad when you were in dad's bag."

Spokey said...

dop

i represent that.

except for the trigeek and at work stuff. mostly the stupid part although i'd have bow to those in your links.

The King of Park Slope's Alberta bound cousin Lenny said...

Did Outside hire you just to antagonize mindless consumers?

If so, good on both of you.

Personally, I went from bear trap pedals to bmx style flats and skipped the whole clipless thing altogether.

I would have passed but I was on "vacation".

Lance Priebus said...

I've been thrown under the bus, but now that I'm outside I start a gig at Outside on Monday.

PS: Everyone in that place has a sharp knife and has their eyes on someone else's throat, sure hope nothing important ever happens in the world.

Dooth said...

I use a flat MKS pedal, which I bought from those rough necks at Rivendell, on my commuter bike. Flat bottom pedals make the cycling world go round.

Combover Guy Photo, would the babe on the right be available for a menage a board ride?

For those wishing to bunny hop without clipless pedals, my dog recommends this instructional video.

Shimano A530s too fancy for you?

Bonezone, try bolting spd's to your deck and rock clippy shoes when you skate. You'll be "ollying" curbs with the same proficiency as you "bunnyhop" them.

Thanks for your post! Through your pen I found the problem up interesting! I believe there are many other people who are interested in them just like me! How long does it take to complete this article? I have read through other blogs, but they are cumbersome and confusing.
happy wheels
