150

LinkHey, it's my 150th post! Never thought this day would come. Thanks to all the companies out there for keeping me entertained and all of y'all for continuing to read this crap. Hopefully the next 150 posts will be considerably better.

Not today, unfortunately.

Things are slow in this post-Interbike time. Fly has been having a "new products week" that has been nothing but new colors. Ooooh, a flat-black Pantera kit! Never would have thought of that. (If it's true innovation you're looking for, try the brown Campillo. Or better yet, the Karl Poynter Sunday.)

There's also a semi-new custom Standard cruiser over on the Standard blog (October 3). And in other news, RIDE says to drill holes in your bike.

When's spring?

first comment? Whuh, I thought that someone'd beat me to the punch given the momentous nature here.

Oh well. But in all seriousness I want to thank Russ for the hard work and for all the crap he puts up with from us out here in the blogoshpere. Speaking from the point of view of someone who's been riding bikes off and on for the last 15 years I've seen some trends come and go and I like to think that I have a decent enough idea of what might have staying power. But Russ blows me out of the water when it comes to giving his take on the state of affairs in the realm of BMX. Plus his engineering 6th sense is pretty well tuned, and the engineer in me can't help but admire that.

Anyway, I don't mean to sound totally sycophantic. So I'll shut up now and just say, "thanks Russ. Keep it up! We got your back."

Should've celebrated your 138th post, not your 150th, Russ.

It's pretty weird that some people can just fall in love with a stranger who's been typing on an internet blog for less than a year what most have been thinking forever.

Really though, I'm dead serious, you've made my life complete, and I will forever be indebted to you. You've really opened a lot of minds...

I can't even fake this stuff, you people make me sick.

Is anyone gay here?

I'll go gay for a set of 170mm GT Power Series cranks that take 1/2" pedals.

And I'm not as old as that makes me sound, so get on that shit.

Thanks Russ. In all seriousness (and with a little bit of embarassment) I have to admit that this is the first site I check each day. Despite the subject matter, it is still almost always upbeat and positive in the comments and truly reflects a more intelligent side of riding. On todays post: I like that Sunday is just putting out different colorways. They aren't dropping 10 different near identical "signature frames" and marketing them as something brand new. They have a great product that speaks for itself and if you favor a given rider and want to rock his (or her) colorway then you're given that chance. It's all good.

what's the geo on that "semi-custom" standard cruiser. it looks ok for trails, actually.

RE: Karl Poynter Sunday. Isn't that how bikes get painted after you chop off the brake posts and seat clamp?

I still refuse to buy anything flat black, I have cans of that in my garage.

Why would anyone give Karl Pointless a signature frame?
