A little drunkcyclist product placement from when I was in Mexico…
Speaking of stickers…
If you would like a few stickers to put in random places, send us a SASE and we will hook it up while supplies last.
P.O. Box 23620
This is old school style and I like it that way. It was the best we could come up with to get some stickers in your greasy little hands. Personally I can’t wait to see all of the places these stickers end up. I know you won’t let me down.by
Tits up. DC down.
Dammit Gnome, that’s what I was thinking.
…“tits are nice but this is what yer lookin’ for”…
WTF does that sign mean real world ? Dip in the road kinda thing ?
FFF, coming into every little town in MX are the topes. They are axle-breaker speed bumps. Small and steep. You learn to slow down very quickly, even though they’ve been broken out of about half of the roads. Not worth the risk.
yea man, fear the Topas!
motorboating presented by DC.
Ah. OK. Just Googled topes.
“If you do not slow down to a snail’s pace before hitting a tope, you can expect to launch your vehicle into flight, potentially damage your suspension, and possibly bite half-way through your tongue.”
I’ve seen monster speed bumps like that in condo/townhouse areas but never on the road.
That’s fucked up.
That’s funny- here’s what I got upon the googling:
tr. & intr.v. toped, top·ing, topes
To drink (liquor) habitually and excessively or engage in such drinking.
[Possibly from obsolete tope, interjection used in proposing a toast.]
I like that even better. Y’all are a bunch of topers.
So now we call this place TC ?
Yeah, once you see the sign you should be on the brakes. Whatever distance they give (100m?) is a rough estimate at very best. I gotta say, they perform remarkably well at slowing cars down. They ought to use them in the US…
Tope is spainish for “knock your panniers off and spill your beer if you go to fast”
Lie back and think of DC..
Michael Jordan didn’t do ‘Lie’ ups his whole career, the man did ‘Lay’ ups…
What were we talking about?
I’m pretty sure those topes are fake.
Just look at how perky they are!
Must have been mid 80′ Rosarita Beach to Ensenada bike race(ride) a group of us were sprinting into town when one of the guys veered off quickly and pancaked after snapping off a pedal on his Colnago on one of the metal Topa’s right by the fishing boat harbor. What a way to destroy an Italian beauty.
3 topes and your tits will be on DC.
I sent my envelopes out.
I gots plans.
I’ve never had Interpol involved before…
i just got the new DC stickers and they are RAD.
“the path of life: first you get the perkies, then you get drunk, thinking of the perkies…. then you die” Or “that is the kind of transformer I can dig..”
male camel toes

i wonder if swiss jails serve swiss cheese?
