i would love to have a rigid singlespeed for the trails here.

I sold my rigid disk SS MTB to mr pubes. Kind of wish I hadn't. :(

Such a fun bike but alas it was a little small for me.

So I guess I'm supposed to post something here before using the bathroom or anything. That's cool. I just discovered this place while poking around in Google for something else. I had no idea the comments section at BSNYC had spun off an actual forum. Should be fun.

I'll get a picture of somebody's commuter bike and post it here like it's mine, for y'all to obsess about. Probably not real soon, though. It's still really nice outside.

Why are you here?

Mostly I signed up in the hope I'd get to see more of the images posted here. There is also the possibility I might post something funny, or even relevant. I guess you'll have to wait and see. This moniker is from an old account at MTBR, where I was generally helpful on the technical side of things, but there are just too many people there who are deeply frightened by independent thought. Makes it a real drag, so I stopped paying any attention to that place.

Y'all got a fridge or something? I brought my lunch, and warm beer isn't much fun.

This is a tight little group, isn't it? Did you scare off Leroy's dog? I like Leroy's dog.

If you don't like strangers, you might make it like Classic Rendezvous where you have to apply for membership. I didn't make the cut there, so if you had that level of protection, you'd not have to tolerate my presence.

If I have any bike pictures with their own urls, they are held captive by the idiots at Photobucket. So it will be a bit before that happens. I have lots of bikes. I presume the fixie would be the most appropriate to post here. It has an interesting feature, so it should be fun.

Anyway, off to work.

Hey y'all, stop being mean. Dude's (only assuming dude based on the name) got us pretty well figured out. Though I'm a little worried that we scared away someone's dog. Most of us like dogs. I don't think we'd scare one away on purpose.

2/10 trolling attempt, the patronizing tone is forced, unamusing, and totally missing the mark. Prediction: you will post a few more times over the next day or two and then disappear forever when you get bored.

Leroy is a regular poster on Bike Snob's blog. His dog is pretty cool. Keeps Leroy in line. I figured Leroy and his dog would be here, but they probably have better things to do.

To no one in particular: I suspected a bit of a hazing, but only after I posted a photo of a bike to be picked apart. Didn't count on the infantile hostility. Am I suspected of being someone who has been here before and caused trouble? I'm not. I know you are not all assholes, so I'll keep looking around here. Maybe I'll find the adult section.

In no particular order: First-gen Fargo, Jamis Komodo, Nishiki International fixie, Trek tandem, Pony Rustler, Fargo SS hardtail, old Fuji touring bike, GT LTS 1x11 with slicks and Albatross bars (my dog's bike), steel Schwinn Moab townie. There are a few others in various states of disrepair. Not a drop bar on any of 'em. Gave them up long ago because of back and neck issues. No giraffe stems for me, thank you very much.

I'm afraid that will have to do until I get a Flickr account going. Sorry, I have a life so it might be a few days. I won't post until you see a bike or two, since it seems to make a lot of you crazy. Really, I'm just another hopeless bike dork, one of the "old entitled white men" that screwball Evan was railing at a few months ago. One of the people his whack-job girlfriend wants to see dead. Believe it or not.

Imgur works, Google photos does not. Dropbox may work. Facebook works too, but maybe not from your phone. Your isp may also give you a /~username public directory you may use, too.

Why is it that every fucking asshole on the Internet drops in on a well-established community and says some shit like, "I have a life...."

Yeah, we recognize that. In fact, I support you in being successful in that life. I'll give you a little pro tip. If you want to join a community, don't start by shitting on them first. If you don't want to join a community, why bother? You have a life to attend to, right?

Ah yes, Leroy, legendary BSNYC comment leaver, I'll never forget his scathing takedown of fixies in response to a TDF article that was really a Brooks advertisement back in 2014. Still chuckle about that one.

I have a lot of thoughts about this new guy. Maybe you’ll even hear some of them sometime, only time will tell. Perhaps I can be bothered to catalogue them when i’m not so busy with my job. Lots of important things to attend to in the meantime, and if I somehow finish all those, I’ll see about checking back into this thread.

For now, I’ve got to go live my life. Perhaps I can park my bike on the community rack here in the meantime? Anyone have a spare key I can borrow? I’ve forgotten mine. Thanks. Bye for now.

Exactly, Heath. Add in the insufferable “adult section” comments and refusal to post photos and you have to wonder why he even bothered.
