The fact that prolly continues to try and make himself out to be more than some hipster that sat on a fixie and spun bars is funny

As I am apparently a glutton for punishment, I sometimes pay penance to my Jew gods by suffering first through his bullshit posts on the old board, and currently occasionally scanning his blog, so I've noticed and commented on this before. To the surprise of no one, he is clearly working hard to distance himself from the already-fading fixed gear freestyle scene. I guess that the 30-something unemployed architect isn't drumming himself up any work being associated with a sport practiced almost exclusively by pre-pubescent boys in Southern California, though I imagine he's making a decent income from the blog, dragging the rest of the aging fixterati with him on his journey to some nether region between Rivendell-loving fuddy-duddyness, and recent "vintage" (see 1990s) pro cycling fashions.

urite. I love me some 1990s pro cycling fashions, but prolly is a pretty lame arbiter of taste when it comes to that shit.

Randodork is the next logical step for the aging cycling dandy, but I think he'll have to cut down on clubbin'. Well the staying up all night is a valuable skill I guess.

i mean, he may be world champion of posting 12 blog posts a day, but im sure some other jerk does that

that is essentially what he "jokingly" posted. world wide web champ stripes.

Mirror pond isn't that bad.

Also, note the grip shifter on the steerer tube.

It's on the 22.2mm shaft of a quill -> threadless adapter

there has to be some kind of "handle" or lever attached to that rohloff shifter, right? cuz just grip-shifting your steerer tube/adapter seems ridiculous

Ain't no rohloff shifter, looks like it's the stock one from a dept-store-level Shimano 3-speed hub. Does not rotate more than 90° total.

I love how J&B constantly vacillates between making quality knockoffs for cheap and overpriced weird assed parts.
