We all encountered this version a few years back:
I encountered this version today:
There’s just something about seeing a banana hammock when you’re buying a breakfast sandwich that just makes you want to never eat breakfast again.
Now, just so I don’t end up writing an entire post dedicated to thin pieces of material designed to suspend male genitalia precariously at the beach, here’s a little something I came across today:
These are awesome brakes. I assure you this is true. It boggles the mind how mountain biking ‘evolved’ from these guys to cantilever brakes. Cantis suck. I don’t care what you say, they suck. They’re hard to adjust, they’re even harder to adjust well enough so that the stopping power actually matters, and they are a staple of crap bikes nowadays…as a mechanic, I am bitter and angry when I have to work on them.
But cam brakes…well damn. A work of art right there. And they work…for the most part. Now if only we could design ’em so the posts are threaded…
These guys were attached to a Schwinn from back in the day when Schwinn didn’t translate into ‘Wal Mart Special,’ which aptly describes the way I feel about my ‘professional career’ right about now. I was a teacher. If you ever want to feel like a single sock in the ‘special’ bin at Wal Mart, try teaching. It makes whiskey taste better.
Hammock up, kids. And be careful out there.by
