heres some great footage of what it looks like to be in a road race! of course these guys are semi-pro/pro riders, so the speeds and intensity are a bit more than what i’m used to…I’d consider watching this if you have some time to kill :)

The built in chain tensioners on @hoang69’s signature Villicus Prime II are so awesome!

These bad boys make it super easy to dial in your rear wheel and chain, and also give you extra confidence that your wheel won’t shift at all!

Best of all, they’re included with the frame! #bmx #subrosa #subrosabrand #subrosasaves #hoangtran

these are one of the main reasons I picked the Prime. best shit ever. I don’t think I’ll ever get another frame without them

yepyep they removed the overdraft charge so I’m all set. I really like TD Bank. now to take care of orpington

as if I needed any more stress today fucking orpington cashed an old utilities check that I completely forgot about it was so old and I’d already moved the money from that account to my other one so it overdrafted. as long as the person on the phone at TD bank wasn’t fucking me around and they actually remove the overdraft fee then I’ll be keeping my account there, otherwise I’m pulling out the money from my other account and closing them both and they can keep their overdraft fee plus the ~-30 bucks that caused it. my favorite thing about overdraft fees is that they’re trying to collect money that doesn’t exist, so like have fun with getting it if I close my accounts.

Via Lisa Ferguson. This happened about an hour from where I lived in one of the biggest cycling hubs in Canada.

Today, my bike was stolen. 
Or at least I thought it was stolen. After a 90-minute client meeting at Yonge/Bloor, my bike had disappeared from this pole outside the Hudson’s Bay Centre. I walked up and down the sidewalk for several minutes, not accepting that this was really happening. I was about to head home and have a good bawl — I can’t afford a new bike — when I noticed a security camera on the RBC that would have captured the bike thief. So I approached a security guard standing outside the Centre and explained my situation. “Yeah, I cut some bikes in the last hour and a half,” he said. “That’s private property,” he said, and told me that the building owner — Brookfield Office Properties — orders their security staff to remove bikes from the pole. Since when is the SIDEWALK private property? I told him he needed to give me my bike back right now or I’d call the police to report a bike theft. While waiting in the lobby for my bike, the security guard on duty there commiserated with me, saying, “Yeah, we get several angry cyclists in here a day.” And those are just the ones who figured out what really happened! I wonder how many people have just assumed their bike was stolen by some run-of-the-mill bike thief and gone home and cried like I was about to? I mean, who would guess that a company worth $18.7 billion steals bikes from low-income people? What does this $18.7 billion company do with all the bikes they steal — do they actually sell them? Sickening.
I was treated like dirt by their RSSI Security staff (including the rude, condescending, sarcastic jerk pictured here). In fact, one of them threatened to cuff me when I stood in front of two more bikes they were about to cut off the pole. “This is public property, and what am I doing that’s illegal?” I kept asking her. 
I want my $134 (+ tax) lock paid for. They will rue the day otherwise. Any ideas are appreciated on how I can kick up a good, public stink if I don’t get reimbursed for my lock. My social media campaign starts tomorrow 
Please share this post! If anything it may prevent someone from actually going home without their bike thanks to these crooks. 
Absolutely LIVID.

Alternatively you could do $134 (+tax) x 2 in vandalism on their building. The x 2 is for interest and inconvenience.

Holy shit

This is Kim Perfetto, an NYC messenger…and a Brittney Spears impersonator. (Or so I’ve been told?!) At any rate she is bad ass. She even had a cameo in that ridiculous bike messenger movie with Joshua what’s his face.

Pay Attention to Ferguson

itchycats:

Please pay attention to what is happening in Ferguson right now.

The people of Ferguson are staging a peaceful protest regarding the unlawful, tragic murder of Mike Brown, and the police are responding with rubber bullets (one man has been injured so far) and tear gas, calling the protesters “fucking animals.”

The police are wearing full military gear. They are responding with absolute violence.

The police are trying to cover up their vicious, unconstitutional actions, telling the news crews/journalists to leave the scene of the protests so they can “clean up.” They’ve completely sealed off Ferguson. THEY’VE TRAPPED THE PROTESTERS (and regular people who would like to go home) INSIDE AND ARE TRYING TO FORCE THE MEDIA OUT. They are harming and threatening to arrest journalists who do not comply.

The Ferguson PD have created an illegal police state. This is, by all means, unconstitutional. BUT IT IS NOT A NEW OCCURRENCE. If you are shocked by this display of police brutality, then you must have missed the last 50 years of anti-black history. And the saddest part? This is not the worst case of it by any means. I beg you, please, pay attention to what is happening and commit it to memory.

Here is a petition to change the current laws and stop the police from abusing their power. I urge you to sign it. And I urge to you share your outrage over what is happening. Tell your legislators, your communities, your social media cohorts. SHARE IT BEFORE THE POLICE AND MEDIA COVER IT UP.

The officer who murdered Mike Brown, the disgusting pig who shot this boy 9 times, is on PAID LEAVE right now. THAT SHOULDN’T EVEN BE AN OPTION. 

The peaceful protesters of Ferguson are being gassed and shot at for seeking justice. PLEASE DON’T IGNORE THEIR STRUGGLE. 

PAY ATTENTION.

(Most links are tweets, as twitter was the fastest and most up-to-date source for information re: Ferguson.)

EDIT: 
Here’s a link to an LA Times article, summarizing the events of the evening protest.

The Trouble With Too Much T

In my interview on TCU I mentioned the cis female athletes that were forced to have their testosterone levels altered before they were allowed to compete. This article dives deeper into what happened because it was much more and worse than just that and it’s still happening. I highly recommend reading this and sending it to anyone that disagrees with trans women’s presence in sports as well as anyone that believes that men are inherently stronger than women. Female Strength is intentionally subjugated.
