    I'm not the asshole disobeying the cops and bragging about it online. Critical Mass is for boring, semi-mongoloids with a warped sense of reality. Way to protest, guys, way to protest.
  3.  
    Wait... that they disobey the police is your issue?

    Here I thought we might be on the same page for once...

    Not to rain on anyone's parade but I've long held a grudge against CM in Boston, from my messenger days. At the time it seemed like a bunch of (largely yuppie) hooligans making trouble when all I wanted to do was to survive to ride another day. I'm not saying that's an accurate reading of the situation, simply my own (admittedly uninformed) opinion.

    I'm not sure I understand the point of riding on Storrow?

    It doesn't make IV any less of an asshole that he's proud of his dissidence and bragging about his and others behavior during CM. Hooligans is not the word. Braindead 20-somethings with just as much personal entitlement as those they claim to be subverting is why they ride on Storrow.

    Additionally, CM is for boring people.

    i agree that bike people on cm do irritate car and leg people on that day. and for that reason i do not like it. im not sure its bringing awareness to the existence of bikers so much as pissing people off. shrug.YO NOT EVERYBODY GOES TO EAR SCHOOL OK

    I just think it's really fun to ride with a big group of cyclists. The "awareness" tag people put on it might be a bit lofty and the practice of riding in the middle of the road and blocking traffic might be anti-productive but it's super fun to ride with 200+ goofy rowdy bike riders and that's why I liked it.

    well, maybe one day while sitting there watching a bunch of smiling bikers ride by, they will realize that their anger is pointless, that its easier to just calm down and smile back...i guess thats just another "perfect world" situation though, boston IS filled with a good amount of assholes in cars.RIDE METAL

    I have a long-standing beef with CM because of the few that talked mad shit and, by all appearances, were just using the crowd as an excuse to get away with pompous assholery. I do realize that applying that logic could condemn any group, but still- they were dicks to my valets, so fuck 'em.We'll get you a cat, don't worry -t-honks

    Yeah even though I love CM, it really bugs me when ordinary douchebags just use it as an outlet for their douchebaggery. It's supposed to be an expression of civil disobedience. Extra emphasis on the "civil" part.
  7.  
    As not just the President of, but an official member of Douches for America, I understand that only special Douche Bags are permitted to exhibit levels of douche-baggery that exemplify the nature of the mass that we, as bikers, are trying to achieve. Those "ordinary" douches should stick to quasi-douche level chicanery until they are ready to advance via official state-regulated testing. I hope this clarifies things.

    anyone else kinda annoyed that bu biolab protesters were hijacking critical mass? kinda annoying. dude at the start made a speech about the bu biolab...isn't critical mass just supposed to be a bike ride? sure, it can have indirect political/social implications, but it's just people riding bikes. we're not protesting the bu biolab because we're riding bikes.
  8.  
    i wish they had critical mass every friday and every hour because i love bicycles and everyone should ride a bicycles and there should be no cars ever because they cause all the pollution in the world and i'm a big gay baby and i need my diaper changedBut the fact of the matter is: Bones heal. Chicks dig scars. And the United States of America has the best doctor-to-daredevil ratio in the world!

    has anyone seen an instance where an ambulance or other vehicle in emergency response and the mass had some sort of altercation? How did it pan out?

    Usually I've seen them be pretty good about pulling over for emergency vehicles. On friday an ambulance came thru central sq. as the mass was going through there and everyone pulled over. I'm relatively new to it though so I bet other shit has happened in the past.

    As I'm reading through all this I'm thinking that 1/4 of you are just computer geeks that love causing internet controversy, never actually going out and riding for fun. Stop complaining about how you feel and ride critical mass, block traffic, be an asshole and have fun. Or just delete your BostonFixed account and be happy on your multi speed bike.

    The old German/quasi-Darth Vadar helmets are really cool. If Bell, Bern Pro-tec, Triple 8, Giro, etc. made a bike helmet in that style I'd rock one in a second.All you white kids look alike when you're still covered in baby fat, so I was getting bored with the non-stop WASP parade.

    I have a really nice black IRO fixed speed that is meant for someone 6'4". It's too big for me, so I'd sell it really cheap. Here it is:

    End of the month bump! Unless some sort of utter disaster strikes, or they don't let me on the train with it, I should be there on my newly built chopper. Be sure to show up so you can watch as my seat comes loose and I eat shit or hit a pot-hole and wreck my fork!
