Yet again...

I have nothing to do with this...I just really like Xtracycles



I also have nothing to do with this...see above...



According to the guys at Surly, stop action Big Dummy builds are the new black. Personally? I'd say Xtracycles are the new automobile, just one that won't destroy the planet. The word automobile means 'something capable of moving on its own'. A bike won't move on its own. Neither will a car, you fill it with petroleum by-product for that. A person is automobile, and a person on a bike is far more automobile than a person without a bike. Logic follows. I win.

That's exactly the problem. Our entire concept of transportation in this country is fcuked. We should have cars that get 75 mpg, but an enormous 'hybrid' suv that gets 20 mpg is considered a worthwhile enterprise for GM's R and D dept. Let's hear it for excessive conspicuous consumption, never mind that our economy is in the toilet because it's based on a system of credit that doesn't really exist.

I heard you were pedaling some kind of big bike! Went on two rides with your Y-chromosome donor in the past weeks. Heard you were going to be back in town...stop in and see me at the Coo! Later...
