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. Cucina grande, you’re doin’ better than me. And I ain’t complainin’. Keep on keepin’ on, hear?

  2. That’s what a good happy fixed gear bike will do for you.
    More riding = more mental clarity = better study = more efficient and therefore, my best maxim stays true:

    Time on a bicycle is never time wasted.

  3. What he said. That’s why I have three distinctly different fixed gears, any one of which could be reconfigured to fill in for the other two in a matter of minutes. You gotta take care of yourself, Jonny. If you don’t, how can you take care of anything else?

  4. I am jealous!!! Stuck in front of the computer studying for 10+ hours a day!! Just getting cabin fever and missing the fact that I can’t just roll out of the house and hit the roads, this area is a nightmare for cycling.
    That’s what I get for moving to Jersey City. Can’t figure out what is worse, the dumb ignorant drivers or the terrible roads and lack of challenging riding!!! (I know, it’s the a hole drivers!!)
    Did manage two spin classes this weekend!! Here’s hoping I find some decent riding in the coming months!!!

  5. fucker. if the ice melts before june, I’ll be playing catch up. No way Im buying ice tires at 50 a pop.

  6. x2 bp. Was gonna make my own, but decided to just slip’n’slide instead. Keep it up BJ…you might find you actually LIKE this whole bicycling thing…

  7. i went to a phx coyotes hockey game the other weekend. vs minnesota wild. coyotes won 6-4. wild player scored a hat trick. two phx goals later, on the 6th phx goal of the game, everybody threw their hats on the ice. ‘cept only one coyote had 2 goals, and he wasn’t even on the ice when the final goal was scored.

    lack of hockey knowledge? waste of good hats? or a phx hat trick?

    phx hat trick: 6 in a row, by anybody. so if 6 peeps assoc with DC ride 6 days in a row, cumulatively, it’s a phx hat trick.

  8. I could look at that beautiful piece of minxy chromo all day.
    I know you’re old and slow because all yer bike stories are measured in time, not distance. Keep inspiring us with your time laden bike stories Juan Grande. Good on ya.

  9. the top cap says “single speed, all you need”

    thats right fucking slow. Your never going to amount to shit Jon as long as you keep riding. Get off my grass, your killing my grass. Your a waste of oxygen. Get the fuck off my grass.

    Dont think so much Jon, just ride and enjoy it.


  10. Snake,
    The fixed gear is primitive. But there is genius in that design – just pedal.

    It matters not if you are going uphill or downhill, headwind or tailwind, rollers or false flat. Just pedal.

    And that is about all I can handle these days.

    There will be no fourth day. Three is plenty. I’ll be doing school work for the next few days. I hope to get back out on Friday.

    We’ll see how it goes.

  11. I’ve been riding fixed for five or six years now. And I’ve been alot of things, riding fixed. But I’ve never been bored. Not even for a second.
