Bike Snob NYC

Hands down my new favorite site is Bike Snob NYC. I’ve no idea who this cat is, I’ve never met him or heard anything about him. I don’t even know if it’s one guy or twelve. But god damn is he one dead on funny ass mother fucker.

He’s killing it with lines like:

Freaking. Hate. Top tube pads. Pointless, stupid accessorizing.

Cursed as I am with such a keen bicycle sense, there is no more nauseatingly offensive classifieds list as the NYC bikes for sale section of Craigslist. This could be a great resource for us NYC cyclists, like it is in other cities. (Check the Denver Craigslist if you don’t believe me.) Instead, it’s a bicycle cesspool.

Yes–you should absolutely be ashamed to ride around on a fixie with tattoos when you don’t even know how your bottom bracket works, much less how to tighten it.

If you found your frame in the trash, put it back.

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. I was kinda partial to:

    “Mechanic, eh? I can tell by the mixmatched crank/spindle. Your poor bike hates its life. “Look away, I’m hideous!,” it says. Why did you do this to a perfectly nice Steamroller?!? There needs to be an Angelina Jolie of bicycles to rescue these poor things…”

  2. You’re right! this cat is brilliant… I dug the “retarded wheelset hall of fame”
