The Poor Man’s Disc Wheel

Sometimes you just gotta laugh out loud at the emails that show up around here.

I hope this guy beats a few douchebags out there in New York State who roll up with their $4,000 wheelsets. I hope he makes them cry.

The man, the legend. The guy who started it all back in the Year of Our Lord Beer, 2000, with a couple of pages worth of idiotic ranting hardcoded on some random porn site that would host anything you uploaded, a book called HTML for Dummies (which was completely appropriate), a bad attitude (which hasn’t much changed), and a Dell desktop running Win95 with 64 mgs of ram and a six gig hard drive. Those were the days. Then he went to law school. Go figure. Flagstaff, Arizona, USA

  1. $60 for a pair of covers from Excel sports is too pricey?

    one thing laminate flooring is not: Light.

    all it needs now is a smattering of Mavic or Zipp stickers and people will be really confused…

  2. Great fodder for Bike Snob NYC… I can remember lining up for a local charity “ride”, and having been forewarned by some shop folk to keep an eye on the “pseudosupercyclists”, happened to notice the incredible feat of engineering next to me. Road bike with cardboard and duct tape “aerofairing” all over the frame and rear wheel. Had a chuckle and a good ride
