Not a fag-o-cycle

Post by asthmatic camel » Sun Jun 10, 2018 9:32 am

Not even an electro-fag-o-cycle.

It's an old-man-o-cycle.

With an aluminium frame.

And 21 speed Shimano gears.

And mud guards and pannier rack fitted as standard.

(I did have to fit the swept back handlebars and old man tractor seat from my old bike to make it comfortable for my poor old bones.)

Shit happens. The older you get, the more often shit happens. So you have to try not to give a shit even when you do. Because, if you give too many shits, you've created your own shit creek and there's no way out other than swimming through the shit. Oh, and fuck.

Quiet elegance is so much more truly gay than vulgar ostentation.

As a horrid old poove, I approve. :clap:

They're disk brakes. He only breaks a disk if he falls off.
"It is not I who is mad! It is I who is crazy!" -- Ren Hoek

"[... it seems most strange that... ] the Creator of Heaven and Earth resorted to the womb of a certain Jewish lady, grew there for nine months and was born as an infant, and afterwards grew up and was betrayed into the hands of his enemies who sentenced him to death and executed him, and that afterwards... he came to life and returned to his original place. The mind of a Jew, or any other person, simply cannot tolerate these assertions. If you have listened all your life to the priests who have filled your brain and the marrow of your bones with this doctrine, and it has settled into you because of that accustomed habit. [I would argue that if you were hearing these ideas for the first time, now, as a grown adult], you would never have accepted them." -- Rabbi Moses ben Nahman, defending the Talmud at the Disputation of Barcelona, July 1263.

"God is the supreme excuse for human adults to absolve themselves of any obligation to preserve natural resources for their own children during their lifetime." -- Gene Ray

I thought a disk break was when something good finally happened for the disk

I don't, Witness. Any thief wanting to get through the several pounds of ironmongery I routinely carry with me would need a heavy duty angle grinder! Even my panniers and saddle are securely locked to the frame.

[quote="asthmatic camel" a heavy duty angle grinder[/quote]

Are those still legal over there? I heard someone dropped one on their foot and they were subsequently banned.
