Just a quick note before work:

I’ve sold out of the SHIFT, HIPSTER t-shirts twice, but I’ve got more in. If you’re interested in buying one, go here:

  1. a lot of people dig them
    but they are clunkers
    when a sports car is not a sports car
    or when cool is not cool
    but has a cool paint job

  2. Mr Electrician, given your highly advertised “patriotic” tendencies, I find it odd that you would even ask what is wrong with a bicycle frame made in Taiwan. Surely you have a million answers for that question that have nothing to do with the quality of the ride.

  3. @nick:

    XL is not a problem. What color do you want? I’m all out of orange at the moment, but I can get red and yellow pretty easily.

  4. I got me a couple Surlys and dig em. No, they ain’t gonna win nothin, but neither am I. If you’re gonna pull the America card…well, you might as well not own a drivetrain to go with your American frame.

  5. I’m on board with Loren on that one. You can’t pedal two feet without tripping over a component made overseas. And everything made in the U.S. is generally more expensive.

    I have no grudge with Surly. I just thought Littlejar’s comment was funny.

  6. Barry (Soetoro, is it?) is an obvious troll. I doubt he would even know what to do with a bicycle.

    Loren, my Crosscheck is a fixed gear. If I tried hard enough I could probably come up with enough all-American parts to justify the country of origin requirements for a new car. Hell, I could put the parts on my American-made Schwinn Traveler frame. It’s thirty years old and I bought it used, but oh well. Like I said, Barry (Hussein?) is a straight up troll. If he walked the walk like hen talks the talk he’d put up some pictures of HIS all-American fleet.

  7. Jellyjar’s a hard boy to figure. Didn’t he put up a phone number awhile back? It wasn’t one a them 1-900 dealies, was it? Might give him a call and see what fer axe he’s a-grindin’.

  8. Cool. If you go to Etsy and order one, just make a note in the order that you want an XL and I’ll get one out to you ASAP.

  9. I liked LJ’s comment. I love me some surly’s. I have been trying for 4 years now to convince my girly to own a surly….longhaul. But when I worked in a shop, Surly’s seem to be the bike of choice for the hipsters/scencters that don’t want to ride a fixie cuz they are too trendy.
