After ten years of bike shop laboring, there's certain things that just really crush my spirit these days; fixing Wal-mart bikes, boxing bikes for shipping, f-ing with BMX style cranks, to name a few. Today was special, as most of those special soul destroying bike shop tasks seemed to roll in, one after another.
I was thinking Danny or I must have done something horrible to destroy our bike karma, but then I realized that today is Friday the 13th, so I'm going to go ahead and blame it on that
I shouldn't complain, but I'm still going to.
It's a good thing we have Tony, because if he was not around Bikeworks would be also known as "Two sourpuss crusty mechanics named Dan, who are probably going to give you dirty looks if you ask them to do anything less than their favorite thing in the world."
Speaking of Tony, he is off racing this weekend in Boulder City NV again. Don't even remember what the race was called, and I most likely won't have any awesome pictures to share with you because they won't bring me any back, so we'll just stop talking about that now.
My favorite new thing this week?
I'm linking it below, but consider this fair warning, it has lots of naurghty language. I was going to put in the edited version, as I try to keep things PG since this is a business site, and not truly my personal blog of nonsense, but it is just so much funnier with all the cussing, and quite honestly, if you are the type to be really offended by foul language then you probably aren't the type of person who thinks Bikeworks is the raddest bike shop ever.
It's incredibly stupid, just the way I like it.
It has been a long week.
