Always hard to decide whether or not a pic is win or fail. But I guess this could be win, as the furry fella is getting better (at least I think it is getting better):

Here's a gratuitous haggard man of indeterminate age, ravaged by hipness (or GHMOIARBH):


GHMOIARBHs are frequently spotted in Brooklyn neighborhoods such as Red Hook, which is where aging "hipsters" tend to move when they can no longer handle the "grind" of Williamburg. (In the days of pubic deodorant, they were simply called "burnouts.") My guess is that the director intends to "parlay" this film into a feature, which will probably be sort of a "hipster" version of "Castaway." In it, the GHMOIARBH will find himself stranded in an uncool town when his vintage Peugeot breaks down. He will be forced to come to terms with his existence (and to perform his own dentistry, like Tom Hanks did with the ice skate), and his only companion will be a broken squash racket he purchased at a yard sale and to which he will sing LCD Soundsystem songs. (James Murphy is the patron saint of GHMOIARBHes.)

LOL. {strokes greying hipster beard}

after a very busy couple of weeks it was time for some retail therapy. todays win was going to brixton cycles to treat myself to a pair of sidi disco slippers, chatting to Nhatt and seeing 140 in big letters on the box instead of the 180 i expected them to be.

Did they have any megas in their SIDI collection? I went to a few shops looking today, and most places seem to avoid carrying megas. Dicks.

Not exactly epic but whatever



I saw someone getting a backy once, as in sitting on the saddle while someone else pedaled. He fell off the back and onto the back wheel whenceupon his croch got mangled in the wheel/frame. It was especially funny as the pedeller got a bit confused and tried to pedal hard through the sudden resistance it caused.

A Win of Truly Pangaean Dimensions

(Sorry for the long post - I'm pretty happy right now)

Over the last three months I've been building up an old 70s KHS road path, nice relaxed gentlemanly geometry, my first build as it happens. The day before yesterday I got my Major Taylors in the post, clamped them in and trotted round to my not-so-L BS, Sydney Street Cycles in Brighton.

Accommodating as ever, Harvey sorted out a few final tweaks here and there, some rim tape, new tyres, that kind of thing. And then it was ready to go. I wanted to go for a spin along the seafront but obligations to a friend in need meant I found myself headed firstly to a bar 50 yards up the road called The Office. I lock the KHS up out the front, Kryptonite and cabled. Go in for a pint. Half an hour tops. Come out: bike gone. Kryptonite gone. Cable cut and left on the floor.

It starts to rain. Never has anyone had a bike for such a short amount of time. I call the OB. Usual bullshit. I'm devastated.

Anyway, I was staying over in Brighton, so duly go and kip on a sofa and drink m'self into an all-forgetting oblivion.

Next day I'm mincing about town with a hangover and a friend, in a pretty bad mood. We get on a bus to go back to her house for some tea. I'm grimacing at having to get on public transport. And after ten minutes, who should I see riding along Ditchling Road? That's right dear readers, two little fucktools riding bikes, one on a black Specialized, the other on a distinctive KHS road path frame.

I barrel downstairs and demand the driver opens the doors and give chase up Ditchling Road on the phone to the OB again trying to get a car out to stop them. "Sorry Sir, we don't have a car in the area, we'll be with you as soon as we can." These kids didn't even know I was behind them.

And I lost them. Somewhere they turned off Ditchling and I lost them, out of breath, asking passers-by desperately if they'd seen them. No chance. OB finally turn up 25 minutes later. To be fair, the officers were nice as pie and we drove the usual estates and backroads on the off chance of finding them. No way. Lost bike.

Back to the station for a statement and some photo IDs, the usual useless stuff. Mobile rings with an 01273 number I don't recognise.

"Hello?"
"Alright. Is that Rory?"
"Yeah, who's this?'
"Well I really like Bulmers, so if you want your bike back you better bring some to Sydney Street."

What the fuck? The officers are flabbergasted. They've never heard of a bike being seen twice on the same day - never mind recovered.

Head over there in the patrol car - there's Harvey with a big grin and my bike.

What happened:

Harvey had to nip out of work to test ride a customer's whip. He's pulled up at a junction and he looks over at the bike next to him. 'Hmm, nice deep sections, nice bars, nice... hang on a fucking minute - that's Rory's bike!'

Harvey walks over, grabs the stem, says "I'll be having that" to the bewildered scally, rips my bike out from under him and walks back to the shop with two bikes and calls me.

As a final footnote, me and Harvey are leaving the shop to go for a spin and a beer and as we pull up at a junction, who should walk over, bold as brass?

"That's my bike" says one of the recently robbed robbers, walking towards me.

"No it fucking isn't" I say, give him the gentlemanly finger, and spin off into the sunset on my newly finished KHS.

So with eternal gratitude to the forum's own Bike Vigilante: Cheesecake International (also known as Harvey from Sydney Street) I suggest you all head over to Current Projects where you can rip it to shreds for its slack geometry, no brakes, no bartape etc etc etc.

WIN

Literally two people in Brighton knew what that bike looked like. One was me. The other was Harvey. I still can't believe the chances of us both seeing it on the same day.

Massive props to Harvey. Bought him champagne. Bigged him up to random women in the street. Legend.

Thanks gents!

We probably should have reported their location to the OB but I dunno if it would've done any good. TBH I was so damned happy to get it back I just wanted to peddle off in this distance and forget all about the little thieving fuckjars.

Ironically, I'm moving to Brighton in a few weeks. After all this I'm going to have to be pretty careful riding about on it. Unless I employ Harvey 24/7 as a personal vigilante.
