A random collection of thoughts associated with the sport of cycling, as relayed by one hopelessly devoid of too many competing interests. It's a one track blog I'm afraid. But hey, if you like bikes you might enjoy it. So keep reading and the worst that'll happen is it might rot your brain..

RI Bicycles Craigslist Post of the Year

I know April just ended (happy May Day comrades!), but this one takes the cake. Read it, I dare you. I know it's devoid of punctuation and all, but it's completely worth it. You can really feel the despair of the seller. Poor guy pours his heart into his ads and folks just jerk him around. People please stop wasting his time and buy the bike. While he may not answer your calls, or text messages, he's pretty much guaranteeing you will enjoy this bike. He wouldn't even be selling it if he didn't need the cash, what with it being so good for excersize (a form of eczema treatment perhaps?) and all. That right there should tell you it's an awesome bike! Scarier still is that this is a follow up to his earlier ad about a cursing bike. A bike that swears?? Hell, where do I sign up?!

Without any further snarkiness here's the ad:

TREK

That's two bike ads in a row...
If I wanted to read bustedspoke.com's for sale page I would be there.

Maybe you can call him and work out a trade for you SS? I mean... it's not like any other bike, EVER.
And you NEED that.

Well, I could've written a little blurb about the Foxboro ride with Steve M but he covered that ground on his bloggy blog.

Let it be known that "This is my favorite trail!" is going into the hall of fame as far as quotes prior to disaster is concerned.
