It seems I've been tagged- or maybe not

It seems I've been tagged by Bike snob, well he linked to me in a post where he tagged some people, so just to be on the safe side. Like a guy ridding a recumbent in a chicken suit, I'm going to roll with it.

So these question were created by fat cyclist and like snob said, he's like the patron saint of bike blogging or something. So since fatty tagged snob and snob seemed to tag me (maybe) here my best efforts to avoid a blogging life of ruin, just to be safe.

If you could have any one — and only one — bike in the world, what would it be?

the Hoffmann bike

Do you already have that coveted dream bike? If so, is it everything you hoped it would be? If not, are you working toward getting it? If you’re not working toward getting it, why not?

yes, no, maybe, sure, there's always a better bike out there and money doesn't grow on trees ya know.

If you had to choose one — and only one — bike route to do every day for the rest of your life, what would it be, and why?

the one I ride to work, because I'll be doing it either way.

What kind of sick person would force another person to ride one and only one bike ride to to do for the rest of her / his life?

Chris Carmichael?

Do you ride both road and mountain bikes? If both, which do you prefer and why? If only one or the other, why are you so narrowminded?


Have you ever ridden a recumbent? If so, why? If not, describe the circumstances under which you would ride a recumbent.

No, maybe in a chicken suit.

Have you ever raced a triathlon? If so, have you also ever tried strangling yourself with dental floss?

no, I have a fear of drop nose saddles

Suppose you were forced to either give up ice cream or bicycles for the rest of your life. Which would you give up, and why?

ice cream, but then when would I get to ride the ironic orange julius bike

What is a question you think this questionnaire should have asked, but has not? Also, answer it.

why did I have a flat tire this morning? because my tube had a hole in it

You’re riding your bike in the wilderness (if you’re a roadie, you’re on a road, but otherwise the surroundings are quite wilderness-like) and you see a bear. The bear sees you. What do you do?

stop and ask it if it would like a cup of tea.

ok now for the tagging part,

bicycles & icicles

pinch flat news

copenhagen cycle chic

bike blog

bicycle design

or maybe I haven't been tagged. Damn this blogging thing is confusing sometimes, so he linked to me does that count?

Oh crap, I have to answer those. Well alright, but it feels like homework.

hey James, it was fatty that started it all so you can blame him for the homework aspect (come to think of it, the whole process was tedious), but I had to pass it along to you, as I check your blog daily
