About big jonny

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. ahh sweet beautiful steel…those mono-cock modern bikes can’t hold a candle to the elegance and class of a lugged steel frame. The best bike I ever owned a Serotta Nova Special X.

  2. The Lemond is a sweet looking bike. Gimmie.

    The Ciocc would pass muster as well.

    The Moser should only be ridden by a poofter in San Fran.

    Just saying…..

  3. Na. The Moser is a Moser. Tall. Long. Pink. That’s the way jonny likes em. Gotta respect that regardless of what the cool kids are doing these days. Dude stays true to the DC code.

    Update: WTF with the Koi fish pond Jonny? Is that required by the HOA?

  4. PS- I put about nine hundred miles on the steel ‘cross bike in 2008 and it’s a great ride, but it can’t hold a candle to the ride quality or raw speed of the full carbon Trophy Bike.

  5. Today I picked up my first full-suspension mtb…Titus Racer X. Unfortunately, due to lack of daylight and ice on the trails, all I could do was take pictures of it in my basement. Next to my steel singlespeed.

    Sweet rides bj…I’d need a freakin’ step ladder to even get on one of those…frames look huge!

  6. With the Moser: something about the classic Italian steel and 10-sp Shimano just don’t seem right. I hate campy, but I think you jumped the shark on this one.

    That chooch is a sweet looking ride. I bet it’s as smooth and broken in as last place in a gang bang. Too bad it weighs a ton with those f*k*n deep dish wheels.

    The Lemond is ugly as hell but classy representation of when 8sp was hot.

    I’d show you pix of my bikes but they’re ALL filthy like whores in a brothel.

    They ain’t pretty to look at but they’ll make the Kessel run in 7 parsecs…

  7. Oh yeah, today I rode my bike all over NYC: Manhattan, Queens and Brooklyn. I’m hoping the rubber lasts another week or two with the Mr Tuffy tire liner. It’s a blast riding tires from brand new to giant holes in the tread without getting a flat.

  8. …nice quiver, juan grande…

    …& i checked on-line w/ all three companies…they all said their bikes could be safely ridden further than just around the block…

    …have at it…

  9. I’d rather see a picture of the actual Greg Lemond dangling from a tree by his seat over an algae coated pond. I think I’ve stated my distaste for the man here before.

    I’m sure you followed the proper cleansing procedures to thoroughly remove the heavy wretched stench of bitter douchiness that may have contaminated this frame at the Lemond facility.

    Very nice steel collection – the Moser and Ciocc are beauts – DA was rebellious but a good call for a big guy – Campy brifters are better left for folks with little hands. I can’t get my thumbs contorted to the right spot with Campy. Thanks for sharing the pics.

  10. Was gonna let the big man slide on the fish pond but it’s too good of an opportunity…let me guess, your house looks suspiciously like your neighbors?

  11. A fool day since the Birds handed the Vikings an ass-kicking bonanza and you’re talking bikes. What kind of a bike/porn blog is this? Eagles vs Steelers 09…

  12. Damn, those big frames make the wheels look like 650s.
    Dig the Moser. Its got gears and I am pretty sure you aren’t rockin girlie jeans when riding it.

    Today…I rode my dirty cx bike through the slop between rain showers, got home, noted how dirty it was/how badly it needs cleaning, went inside and cracked a cold one. No love for the bikes sometimes…how sad.
    At least the rain is keeping the mud coating thickness down.

  13. The scale on the Ciocc certainly gives the illusion of 650s. The only steel road bike left in our house is my wife’s 650c Slingshot – that’s a spry little machine.

    I’ve been patiently waiting for the Eagles hype to start. I’m pulling for them hard this Sunday assuming the Panthers get past the Cards Saturday night. An Eagles win is the ticket to another Panthers home game!

  14. Nice mobile scaffolding! Stack’em and climb’em to clean-out those gutters or pick some dates! I to suffer from too much obsolete steel, but they sure look good and re-kindle a memory or two.

  15. A truly fine showcase of bikes. Way to keep true to tradition, craftsmanship, and quality. But WTF – an outdoor pond in PHX? Ridiculous.

  16. I just wanted to drop a line to say “Thank You” for adding me to your blogroll. I just found out yesterday when I was checking refferrals. Anywho I put a link in my blog back here as thanks, so people who don’t know about DC can find you.

  17. I’ve actually considered converting my old Fuji League (cheap steel POS) to 650b for better (some) tire and fender clearance. Only problem-the frame is 64 cm. Jeeze, tell me it wouldn’t look like a Moulton or some shit.
