    Really? Because I think Nat looks like an idiot today and made me ride a brompton too so we can take a train later instead of waiting until tomorrow. They're also short on people at Bread, so now he's working extra hard on a foldy toy bike. I'm whining all day.

    ^ if you spot someone who looks like they like bikes a lot, make a post to see if they're on here! You'll slowly start to recognize people and we'll see each other all over town. I still don't know what some people look like."life is hard, cats are soft." - surprisefries

    I know you guys are joking but it seems like a significant amount of the bike commuters I see have empty child seats. Perhaps to fool drivers into being more careful?

    I think it's just that they use them for carrying tiny people sometimes and they're probably a pain to take off, but I have heard of some people using them because drivers do generally give them more space."life is hard, cats are soft." - surprisefries

    so much privilege

    Also some people bike their kiddo to daycare, then continue on to work sans offspring. Not that I am one of those people, but I probably would be if daycare were farther from our house.DFL and DTF :D:D:D:D

    was riding behind some dude last night down mass ave on a shitty bike ghost riding an even more shitty bike with no front wheel, and i was wondering which shop would have the misfortune of his visitMust be awful, being so fluffy.
  27.  
    hmmm.. my thoughts are they either stole the frame and left the locked-up front wheel behind, or they're recovering their frame which had their unlocked front wheel stolensomebody turn the lights off on this place already.

    it occurred to me yesterday as I was commuting to work on my full carbon cx bike in my skin suit and leg warmers that It only took me like 6 years to become everything I hated when i was in college. No one ever sees me because no one can even recognize me anymore, haha.'Cause i always say i love you when i mean turn out the lights.

    It's rare that anyone passes me on the way to school but this morning I was doing 18-20mph on the minuteman and this guy on a Tarmac passes me but then slows down to the same pace I was holding before.

    ^i want to blow up the SWC every time that happens. And most days I don't even go that fast, its not hard to maintain a faster pace than me most mornings.'Cause i always say i love you when i mean turn out the lights.
