I've been hit more driving than I have on a bike.
Kinda scary to think about someone driving who hasn't taken any kind of tests or been certified in any way since they were a teenager.

My bar for "acceptable Pinarello behavior" was pretty low, but..

That's sad. Was he always like that? I really loved some of his videos like Road Sage.

Lucas is a pain to ride with honestly. He's fast and he's competent but he causes problems with drivers and is is pretty aggressive. Even with a bunch of messengers who consistently take lights and take risks there are times where we just kinda roll our eyes. I can absolutely see a group of roadies refusing to ride with him.

After watching that video I'd tell him to fuck off too. Like, how you gonna chase them down to bitch at them after they already told him they don't want to be associated with him? What a jerk.

Funny JA moment today

Riding across campus with my light on. It's a pretty bright light, but I have it mounted for easy tilting, and I have it pointed like five feet in front of me so I don't blind anyone.

I'm riding through the main thoroughfare of campus at 6:30pm or so, pretty dark out, and there's nobody else around. The path is 30 feet wide, paved, and I'm going 10 miles an hour tops.

No exaggeration, 200 feet in front of me, like a quarter of a city block, there's two students riding towards me with no lights. As soon as I'm in view, Goofus cuts right around Gallant and sweeps her front wheel, and just takes her the fuck out. His girlfriend, she's riding right next to him, and he just sweeps her! I assume because he saw my light.

Goofus gets so scared by the fact that he just literally crashed his girlfriend that he immediately rides off the path, and crashes his own bike into the ground. Just lays it down in the grass.

I watched this all play out from a pretty significant distance - I was not even remotely close. I rode over, of course, made sure she was ok (she was fine) and checked the bike (she did a barspin and tied up the front brake). I made sure she took a minute to breathe and all. I didn't want to be like "YO dude, you just took her the fuck out because you're an idiot" but I was thinking it. He kept saying "I saw your light and tried to move" and I was thinking "Move from what?! I'm fifteen car lengths away from you on a 30 foot path..."

I ended up just apologizing so that he could say "it wasn't your fault" which he did, and then I left. Really funny.

There is a buttload of trust that needs to happen to allow Googlegroup & Tarck marketplace transactions.

Sounds like two different people sent money to him (month ago?) to purchase something and he not only didn't send the item but ignored all their emails. Then some people went after him on instagram so he made his profile private & swore at users that called him out in the comments.
Towards the end of the thread one purchaser seems to have finally broken through:

Quote:
I got an email from Austin yesterday saying the fenders shipped. No date or tracking number, so we'll see what happens.

FYI this is the same guy with the cracked rear dropout on his new Crust that Tarck was recently talking about.
