Man Jailed After Arguing w/ Bike

August 26th, 2010 [print] No comments

 Richard BialonA soused Stuart man was jailed after deputies say he was engaged in an "obscene argument" with his bicycle, a recently released arrest affidavit states.

County Sheriff’s deputies spied Richard Bialon, 68, around 4 a.m. Tuesday "yelling at his bicycle" in the parking lot of a Mobil gas station in the 3900 block of South Kanner Highway.

"Customers were coming to the Mobil and were very disturbed as to the yelling and obscene argument the defendant was having with his bicycle," the affidavit states.

The affidavit didn’t specify what the argument was about [probably a pesky derailer; God knows I’ve yelled at mine a time or two] or whether Bialon had accused the pedal-powered vehicle of wrongdoing.

Bialon, of the 5500 block of South Kanner Highway, had been imbibing all day and was described as "very intoxicated."

He was arrested on a misdemeanor disorderly intoxication charge and taken to jail.

Mario Kart Bike Lane

August 24th, 2010 [print] No comments

Some clever person has turned the Williams Avenue bike lane in Portland, OR, into a Mario Kart race track.  If the City is as cool as they pretend to be, hopefully they’ll just leave it alone and let everyone enjoy the upgrade.

I don’t know how many bike wrecks would have been avoided if people didn’t treat them like airplanes.  Anyway, enjoy the carnage…

Bike Security Fail

August 14th, 2010 [print] No comments

I want to make fun of this, but I can’t.  Back in ’98, after shelling out over $1,000 for a Gary Fisher Joshua, I did something just as stupid.  I was headed to a bike shop downtown, and all I could find to lock it to was a parking meter, so I locked it up and went inside without putting much thought into it.

It wasn’t until I came out and saw that I’d just locked my new bike to a post that was no more than 4" high, that I realized how dumb I was.  I was just lucky no one took it.

There’s really not a whole lot to say about this, but the owner sure wins points for originality/lack of ergonomics.  Seen in NYC.

Bad Idea of the Day: Spin Scooter

July 22nd, 2010 [print] No comments

Whatever you do, don’t build this thing:

http://www.instructables.com/id/Build-the-SpinScooter/

I think the builder sums it up best with this:

"…and sometimes these creations fail, either in a huge flop, or a blaze of glory where the crash test pilot becomes acquainted with the pavement."

On second thought, build it and send me a link to your initial test drive.
