I think I just threw up a little bit in the back of my mouth


So, I often ruthlessly mock the fixie fad. Not as cleverly as Bike Snob, of course, but I'm right in there with him on the anti-bandwagon bandwagon.

But I built a fixie for my pal Scott. Glittery blue sparkle fixie, no less.

But then he sent me a picture of his handlebars, and it became clear that Waltworks has jumped the shark. Where's the Obama spoke card?

I think it's pretty.

only a guy thats very secure in his manhood (and his ability to throw a punch) can ride a glittery bike.

and you are well known for your style Walt???

AMarburg said...

I think you're OK, mate.

You're in trouble when he shows up with matching, custom painted Deep-V (sparkle bass boat!) rims.

kw said...

will you be building another Michael Jackson tribute bike soon?

Walt said...

Bastards. You're all bastards.

Why is it that I get the most comments when I mock myself?

The front brake, Luis, is because Scott's a dad these days...nice to be able to stop quick.

Jumped the shark indeed. And how 'bout the fact that you'd *never* make a road fork, eh? Though I agree that you're not really in trouble 'till the Deep V's materialize. At that point it's repo time lest you loose what little street cred you've got left.

Scott said...

There will never be Deep V's on this one. That's just too far...

Thanks again for the sweet ride Walt.

Later...
