"now entering period of maximum constraint, doors to my right"

April 13, 2018

as founder and president of the profile design cup holders club the addition of this bottle cage to the work bike makes it more functional and personal and versatile. as you know these bottle cages cover any situation no matter where you find yourself on the coffee-beer continuum.

 

what would John Forester do?

blurring the line between vehicular cycling and jimmy johns 

John Forester never rode a souped-up electric assist purple haze cargo bike with an 8' long wheel base around a college campus full of winding roads, slick bricks, dirt trails, side paths and loading docks sprinkled with 40,000 undergrads looking at their phones.  while the jimmy johns tear it up I smile and continue on in a safe and predictable manner monday through friday.

word. John Forester did some good things bringing attention to cyclists and cycling. However I believe cities and towns and counties all over the USA are digging themselves out of the holes they dug with John Forester's inspiration. Vehicular cycling is necessary sometimes and makes sense but not all the time in a rigid systematic approach. The reason we ride bikes is to hop that curb and take the sidewalk or path or dirt trail or dedicated bike lane or amazing bike path all the fucking way around Lake Washington. go with the flow and when it clogs up change your approach. If John Forester rode his bike to work in Seattle tomorrow he'd be so fucking pissed because traffic sucks and he'd be sitting in it in South Lake Union waiting through 5 light cycles to get across one intersection just like all the other single occupant vehicle chuffers. Horseshit.

please take a moment to find the glow-in-the-dark green "pildewasser" bracelet on the water bottle via Bill Brady. These make great additions to any water bottle. in the dark in the middle of the night dehydrated you can find your water and wet your whistle and go back to sleep and you wont give a shit that the first r in pilderwasser is missing. I have a bag of these dohickys and I bet Bill Brady still has 6 bags of them. let me know if you want 10 or 12 of them.
