Weekly Roundup January 30

It’s been a bit of a slow week, not much in the news, people seem to be taking a bit of a break from their blogs, it’s cold & snowy, it’s 106 miles to Chicago, I’ve got a full tank of gas, a half a pack of cigarettes, it’s dark outside and I’m wearing sunglasses. Sorry, random Elwood possession. With that I give you, The Weekly Roundup!

Fat Cyclist: The Fat man cometh, and he come with a quiver full of brilliant ideas. Upgrades is a brilliant look at what Fatty would upgrade (on his body) if he were able to. Ever want super human powers? Well, were not talking x-ray vision, but he has some really cool ideas like transitions eyeballs, laser eyes… You just need to read it for yourself.

Bunny Hop Rockstar: John posted a pretty good one last week about his training and intricacies (if you will). Deep Cycle is a post about John’s training habits, and how they mimic his life.

50K Loop NS: I laughed, I cried, ok so I didn’t really cry but I laughed my butt off! Why Two Wheels? is Bluenosers dilemma to understand the seemingly overlapping differences between Trials Riders and Unicyclists. He points out how they seem to know what they are looking for but don’t realize they’re missing the obvious answer.

Bike Snob NYC: Bike Snob had a funny as hell two-parter this week. Par one: Fixedgallery… Of Unbridled Exuberance is BSNYs usual thrashing of all things Fixedgallery. Part two: Worst Of NYC Craigslist Bike Ads #42-#45 ties in the, likewise, wretched trash people are passing off as quality bikes for sale on Craigslist.

Sadly, or if you’re happy that this is over luckily, that’s about it for the week. As usual, I’m the Phun Cyclist, you stay classy Cleveland.
