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. You have a garage? How many bike do you own? Can you ride them all at once? I think I might try law school too.

  2. You are my salvation! I’m keeping that shot so I can show my wife next time she yells at me for having too many bikes!

  3. Enjoy it while you can. In a few short years, DC Jonny will replace that Lemond with JD Jonny’s brand new Serotta and Campy 12. And then he’ll look down on all of us for having dirty bikes. Giant will be right behind him with a custom Sachs with Lightweight wheels. Or maybe that $22k bike from the cover of Bicycling were almost $10k of it was just custom copper anodizing. That’s the future of this blog. “Esquire Cyclist”

  4. That’s only one side of the garage… There are at least six more you can’t see in that pic.

    Three fixed, four singles, one three speed, one five speed, one seven speed, two eight speeds, four nines & two with 10.


    I’m insane.

    Steel is real.

  5. 94 gears if my math is right, damn. When I need my next meth fix, I know wheres to getz me my next one.

    You are insane.

  6. At least 6 more? I’ve ONLY got 6. Plus the kids bikes. I continually hear about the “excessive” number of bikes in my own stable. Of course Im hearing it from those who have the sleds, quads, motos, travel trailers and the 4x4s to accomodate thier habits. Nothing wrong with that… I just choose to spend the small “disposable income” that I have, on toys that won’t cost me mo’ money to insure, license and finance.

    Bikes are like golf clubs… One for every occasion and for some, taylor made for the user. The perfect number of bikes needed? One more than you already have…

  7. Well BJ I am down to 11 bikes in my garage. I sold 3 of them. 2 mth bikes and a cross bike. I am dow to just one mtn bike and I might just sell it. for some reason I just ride my road bike(s) and I love riding my 29er more than any of them when I can it is just too time cumbersome to get a ride in on a mnt bike. more prep before and after and drive to and from. now days if I gots to put my bike on the car to get a ride in Im not gonn ride. I know I suck it

    one of which I ride. 10 of which I dust and look at a lot; take shit on and off etc. you know the deal.

    now if each could cover the mortgage month to month my wife wouldnt be so pissed

    hows that stem look on the Fond?

  9. ya, meanwhile Greg himself is weighing a ton too, more like the Cookie Lemonster. Good Eddy Merckx quote: “It’s not the cakes that are bad for you, it’s the climbs.”

  10. That head tube looks to be about as big as my top tube…damn.

    I miss having a garage. Decided to “consolidate” recently and now realize I just own too much shit, bikes topping the list. This has lead to some serious domestic aggravation for sure.

  11. Jeeze, I thought I had it bad. Six-no, seven-but only two are intact. My Crosscheck, the go-to bike is set up fixed. 62 cm with an uncut steerer. Best old man bike ever. And my ninety-something HooKoo, Singlated and rigid.

    The Monocog ain’t been ridden in awhile, and there’s my 78 Raleigh Supercourse needing built back up after distinguished service as a fixie. Plus an Allez Sport I snagged for $20 at a thrift shop, my Fuji League to be finished and a crappy lugged Schwinn frame in the basement that’ll probably get some parts if I can find something else to use as a doorstop.

    Oh, almost forgot-The wife’s old tenspeed. Might put that together for the kid.

    Come to think of it, they’re all steel. And no, I’ve never particularly felt any weight penalty.

    From the bike, that is…
