Brian o biku in štriku:
Why not give them an e-recumbent and shave a bald spot into their heads to complete the look?

John o blogih:
Have your own site, people! Run a blog! Get an RSS feeder! Relive 2008!

Gbyrne o Schrödingerjevih rezervnih delih:
Invariably, I’ll hold onto these things for years, decades even, across moves to multiple addresses, and yet always find myself absolutely requiring one a within a month of discarding it.

Robot o beli barvi na kolesih:
Let me ask you this: What do you think when you walk into someone’s home for the first time and see that they’ve got white leather couches? Right! Cocaine dealer!

(osnutek iz leta 2011)

Spet nimam časa, pa si bom sposodil mnenje iz mtrbr, ki skoraj povzame moj pogled na problematiko kadar se počutim še posebej hipijevsko:

The best thing you can do is take pride in your work and not worry about the people who ride and never help. I struggled with this for a few years as a trail steward. Guilting people does not work. Incentives like free lunch, beer, and T-shirts only go so far.

Some have the feeling that they pay taxes to support the parks and shouldn’t have to work. Some have a limited amount of time and would rather ride than work on trail. Some have other reasons.

I smile at the people who ride (or walk or run) by me when I’m doing trail work knowing that I made a positive impact. Yeah, it’s kind of touchy-feely, but I wish them no ill will. I choose to do trail work; they choose to ride.

Kadar sem pa slabe volje, se moje mnenje malo spremeni:

Recimo tradicionalna kramp turca se je letos odvijala po eni “redkih dobro ohranjenih mulatjer”. Pravzaprav “bi se morala imenovati grablje turca”, ker so samo grabili listje in drobno kamenje ki je malo zasulo pot. Pa kaj hudiča zapravljate dragocen čas, energijo in moč v številu, ter popravljate pot ki ne rabi popravljanja, oz. jo lahko popravita lokalec in prišlek po kapljicah.

moj komentar iz leta 2022: savage :)

MTB capital of the universe

Pred kratkim sem bral o Bentonvillu1, in njih vedno bolj razširjeni mreži kolesarskih potk. Kot pravijo o lastni hvali, se njihovo samo-poimenovanje pod mizo vala (najbrž pijano od brezalkoholnega piva) – ampak mi je dalo misliti – kaj ni mtb ena taka dejavnost, ne samo šport, kjer lokacija ne šteje veliko, najbolj važna je infrastruktura, no, saj razgledi tudi, ampak najprej, v tem primeru potke, potem pa še vse ostalo.

Very fine example of trolling

Pisalo se je leto 2013, in organizatorji gira del Lazio so se odločili svojo dirko finančno, tekmovalno in medijsko ojačat, no saj gre pa vse troje itak skupaj z roko v roki. Preimenovali so se v Roma Maxima (takrat so se Strade Bianche imenovale Eroica neki neki) in cilj postavili pred rimski amfiteater. Ka-ching! No, tak je bil pogled na prihodnost dirke takrat.

One of the best, few filmmakers, not the “oh I know the tech of how to make movies” bros, but actal storytellers, praised by none other than the Robot himself, made this video: https://vimeo.com/134348011 or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o240EZKhIt0

Then a bunch of stuff happened and then this: https://bikerumor.com/2021/10/11/cervelo-santa-cruz-cannondale-gt-schwinn-acquisition/ and now charge bikes website: http://www.chargebikes.com

I guess they bought it for the name alone.

Sarah o pomembnih ljudeh:
I used to think I thought the right way, like, who cares if everyone does bad things, because bad things are just what important people have to do. Who cares if Barack Obama bombs people and doesn’t even try to prosecute bankers, because that’s all just his job, and he loves gay people and yells at bigots and his wife is smart and has great arms. Who cares if Hillary Clinton is best friends with Henry Kissinger, because she is a woman and so am I, and she stands up to men, and isn’t that what feminism is all about, finally getting into the rooms, finally getting to be the one to kill the people who don’t matter?

3T ne more da ne bi občudoval profesionalizma:
Sad day in our office in Bergamo. This morning at 6.00am 6-8 thieves entered our office and robbed all bikes. The thieves drilled a hole through a 1 meter thick wall to enter our warehouse. After that they moved quickly to break the warehouse door, cut the fence surrounding our office and move more than 20 bikes into their van. The police arrived within 10 minutes, but they already had left. Everyone at 3T is in shock that this happened, and the level of professionalism of the thieves.

David Graeber o dnevnih nalogah:
Does Oxford really need to employ a dozen-plus PR specialists to convince the public it’s a top-notch university? I’d imagine it would take at least that many PR agents quite a number of years to convince the public Oxford was not a top-notch university, and even then, I suspect the task would prove impossible. Obviously, I am being slightly facetious here: this is not the only thing a PR department does. I’m sure in the case of Oxford much of its day-to-day concerns involve more practical matters such as attracting to the university the children of oil magnates or corrupt politicians from foreign lands who might otherwise have gone to Cambridge.

David Roberts o peer review verziji:
The authors conclude that “in all individual cases and across the aggregated evidence, the case for feasibility [of 100 percent renewable energy] is inadequate for the formation of responsible policy directed at responding to climate change.”
That is the peer-reviewed version of a sick burn.

Mark Alker o hashtagih:
So according to Specialized the word ‘Wu’ is a noun that is used to describe the tilt of your seatpost. For example..
I say old chap, the nose of your saddle is tipped back at some considerable angle beyond the natural horizontal.
..is more commonly translated on the trail as..
Yo bro, you are rockin some serious wu on that saddle, dude. Yeah!#doyouevenwubro

Vinko in Jazst o pogruntacijah:
vinko:
Pozdravljeni!
Po načrtih iz neta sem naredil napravico,ki ti s pomočjo indukcijske plošče naredi več elektrike kot jo porabi. Za 200 watov porabljene elektrike ven dobiš cca 500 watov.In tako je tudi pri višji porabi ,za 1000 watov dobiš ven cca 3000 watov elektrike,…
Zadevo sem že stestiral in deluje,,…
Hvala in lep dan vsem želim! Lp

Jazst:
@ Vinko To tvojo stvar sem videl in sprobal tudi sam in deluje fantasično. Meni je bolj všeč moja druga pogruntacija drugače, in sicer – avto sem obrnil na glavo in z elektro motorjem poganjam gumo. Ker ima bencinski motor izkoristek 1:3 ko izgoreva bencin dobim ven 3x več bencina kot dam notri elektrike. Nikoli več mi ni treba tankati.
