Joke too horrible not to share...

A road walks into a bar. They're a few other roads there... a couple of massive freeways hanging out near the bar, a one-way street over at the jukebox, a couple of nice clean suburban lanes sharing laughs over a pitcher. In the corner is a really, skinny, wiry guy. He's talking to himself and twitching violently.

The road walks up to the bartender, orders a drink and asks, "Hey, what's the twitchy guy's problem?"

The bartender says, "Stay away from that guy. He's a cycle path."


Energy Return Bicycle

During my quest to find a profitable way to get into bike industry... I ran into yet another odd bicycle design concept. Join the Erbolution. FYI... I pulled the pic off an ebay add.

Looking for Feedback...

I'm really thinking about going for a new Specialized rig. I have been looking at 29er's for a few months now, and I really had my heart set on a Gary Fisher. But the local bike shop up the street is running a special 12 months same as cash. Now being a divorced Dad and paying my ex more than I care to say plus a portion of my left testicle, I have to find creative ways to be able to afford this not-so-cheap hobby. I did look at a really nice Pivot 429. Hahahaha. A little out of my price range at $4,599. But they had some Specialized bikes rolling out in a couple months. They're also willing to do a deal for a military dude. So what do you all think of the new Specialized line coming out? I already asked Chino what he thought. What's everyone else have to say? The StumpJumper and the Epic were the two mains ones I'm looking at. Exact specs are kind of scarce, so if you find any other info to sway me, let me know.

Here's an excerpt of one of the models I'm leaning towards...

"The other 29er Specialized debuted was the new Epic 29er, which was designed to be a fun ride both on and off the racecourse, and follows the company's classic long toptube/short chainstay/low bottom bracket fomula. Like all of Specialized's rear shocks now, the new Mini Brain shock on the Epic is designed by Specialized, but manufactured by Fox Racing Shox—a departure for Specialized which for a spell oversaw all its own rear shock production, with mixed success. The Epic 29er sees the same S29 fork that the S-Works Carbon 29er, but gets 100 millimeters of travel. The SRAM XX equipped cross-country whip is quite lean too, weighing in at just 25 pounds."
