and finally, we have the most recent installment of the mixte lovin', a lil piece i like to call...
ENGLISH BEATS MEET THE FRENCH PRESS...
friend to the blog, eric, upon seeing the above picture jokingly asked,"is there a law in sf that says all mixtes must have wire front baskets? just wonderin'... "
the three of us SF CYLRAB members of course had to respond to that..separately of course:
yes, it is codified...."upon whence you procure a vintage mixte, which was found by various means, but never through a bike store, thee shall place upon the front wheel a large basket. after basket is attached to aforementioned predetermined location, a back rack is optional, but a bungee cord and a ringing apparatus of some fashion is not."
it is actually the 11th Commandment.
Thou shalt adorn thy mixte with those things that make it pleasing to the Lord and practical for carrying the Holy Beer.
and, finally, meli's response:
Mixtes and the lady owners must stay hydrated from either barley or caffeine beverages. Repeat daily from either one.
For further reference please consult the HH handbook, beer:30 ext. happy hour.
now, i hereby call a very friendly and totally benign mixte competition. how many english beats (bicis of english heritage) do you see compared to french presses (velos of the french make)?
on another note, do you notice the people you like/like to ride with tend to have the same bikes as you? road bikes, vintage, fixies, MTB, touring, steel, trikes? i feel like the answer may not be as easy as it could be at first glance. this may be because the people you know may have more than one bike. maybe not.
have a happy monday Y'ALL.
