while I was riding into campus today a car ran a stop sign in front of me and they were so close that they hit my foot and broke their taillight :3
cyclists know what I’m talking about
if you’re gonna have components it’s sram all the way
So you guys might not find this as funny as I do, but this is a fucking bike chain
they’re not supposed to hold their shape
also when the guy brought the bike in he was like “the chain’s a little bit rusty”
but I mean if you do that’s totally fine by me
my foot might just crash into your taillight
My amazing friend Krys was hit by a car 2 weeks ago on her bike and is in serious need of help. Please help her out and donate.
On March 15th, Krys was hit by a car here in Brooklyn. After major surgery, she is unable to walk, work or ride her bike. Her rehab period will be extensive, but a full recovery is planned.
Krys was 718 Cyclery’s first employee, and is the kind of person who would help others at a moment’s notice. She is also the kind of person who would never dream of asking for help…
I am not that kind of person…please donate what you can to help offset the costs of her not being able to work.

So what do you do when those 4” tires on your Surly Pugsley just don’t seem wide enough anymore? You have no choice but to build your own monster bike like the one shown here (found via Marcus Santiago on Google +). If those tires don’t seem wide enough, you can always use a dragster tire in the rear; just make sure you have the legs and the gearing to start it rotating. And of course, there is always the tractor tire option for those who think that car tires are a bit too wimpy.

Hey guys, it would mean a lot to me if you would sign this petition to save the Casselberry Trails
Brief History about the house and jumps:
The Trails are located at 71 N Winter Park DriveCasselberry, FL 32707
My family and I (Paul Sarkisian, Mary Sarkisian, and Aaron Sarkisian) moved to the property in 1991. As early as I can remember I have been riding my bike to and from school and to get around town. I got my first BMX bike when I was eight years old. I met Rickey Bates and started racing BMX when I was ten. Soon after we started to meet more BMXers in Casselberry and the surrounding cities. After two or three years of racing we all started to only be into the jumping and tricks side of BMX. We built our own jumps day after day at more than ten different spots in the area. After being kicked out of countless patches of woods all over the central Florida area, my father offered to let us dig in the front yard. This was in the summer of 1998. For 13 years the trails have expanded and grown into what it is today. Every year people from all over the county and world come to ride and hang out at the jumps. The jumps have been in countless main stream videos (The Welcome to pittsburgh series, Transit, The banned series, Shadow - Into the Void, Youtube, Fox News) and magazines (Case, The Albion, Dig, Cover of Ride BMX). A couple of months ago the city gave us citations for bringing in dirt to the property and for having the jumps on our property. We are now working with the city and looking for a solution to keep the jumps. The city has basically said there is no solution and if nothing is done to correct the problem then they will hire a company to come plow the jumps. Right now we are working on finishing the partial survey we have and trying to raise money for the $500 permit fee that the city is requiring.
We need to show the City of Casselberry that a lot of people care about what we have going on. They need to see that their unwillingness to work with us will not go unnoticed. If you believe that the Casselberry Trails should remain and that the City of Casselberry should start working with us towards a more positive solution then please sign our petition.
