Well the day kinda got away from me there, but before we tear off another page on the calendar I figured I’d pop into the office.
Remember how I was talking about bells a couple days ago? Well look what I found on my doormat today:
I haven’t even taken it out of the box yet, but it’s this one:
It looks like a little metal mushroom, or some kind of gothic pixie umbrella.
Since it’s black, I plan to put it on the Jones.
Also, Business Insider asked me to do a “best bikes” roundup, and I present it to you herewith so you can have fun picking it apart:
A few things to note:
- This has been heavily edited, so much so I don’t even recognize much of it. (That’s not a complaint, I just feel like I should mention it in the same way that if I lived in a pre-furnished apartment I’d point out to visitors I didn’t choose the couch.)
- “Best Bikes” should have an asterisk next to it as, for the most part, this is more a rundown of solid deals from certain retailers. (For example, if I were really walking someone through the process of buying a road bike on a one-on-one basis I’d recommend a Milwaukee over the Cannondale, but the hand-holding that would require is beyond the purview of a simple buyer’s guide like this. Plus, let’s be honest, the unseasoned bike buyer is going to go for the Cannondale over the Milwaukee anyway.) But they’re all good bikes, and I’d also go so far as to say Brompton really does make the best folding bikes. And I did work the Jones in there for what it’s worth.

That’s right, it’s a profit deal:
Takes the pressure off.
But sure, feel free to quibble or deride as you see fit. It’s a cheesy article, but I daresay you’d be pretty happy to have all those bikes in your garage. (As for me, I’d just be happy to have a garage.)
Finally, John Forester has died:
That’s a rough headline.
I hope one day to be remembered just as fondly.
