If You're Not A Kid And You Ride A Bike, Youz On Drugs

This is the best thing on the internet today.

And it's not exactly the second best thing on the internet today, but I'll share this:

Big Bikes is now a mobile bicycle repair service in addition to being a languishing-in-limbo blog. It's wicked legit dude, I have a Craiglist Ad. You know how legit it is? I use "we" instead of "I" to make it sound like I...I mean we, are actually a shop, rather than one guy in a badly lit basement, drinking too much coffee, and listening to NPR until someone with a "wet voice" comes on and he has to switch over to a college radio station for a while.

At Big Bikes we don't just repair your bike, we BLOG about repairing your bike (and sometimes maybe we blog when we should be repairing your bike).

As you may have noticed, I have spent the past few days freaking out and whining about not having a "real" job, both here and on Twitter:

For some reason that didn't work.

Then I realized that I had dormant real world skills: I am a fucking bike mechanic. So send me your business, send me your friends' business, send me your family's business, and then maybe I'll get back to what's really important — stuff like gluing chest hair to my face, threatening to drink Chelada, and writing about it.

Thanks for your support.

"That's probably the most ignorant blog I ever had in my life besides the other ones I ever did so... I'm just being real."


You might be able to steal that quote from his rant and insert it into your "About Big Bikes" section. Not that that's a bad thing, it's what keeps us coming back - "i'm peacin out on that man. holla at yo BOY"

Classic! I don't know how you find it, but that is a true skill you have.

Go watch today's installment of Das Pro ( over at and listen to all the pretty noises that Chandler's bike makes. He could have used your help over here. Watching him put his bike together before his race was a lot like watching a three-year-old play with Legos.
