Bike, Not A Bike

24 Sep

When is a bike not a bike?

When Brent says it’s not, that’s when.

All of the following contraptions, er, bikes have been in the shop recently but only one of them elicited the response, “that’s not a bike” from Brent.

Since Brent has worked around bikes and bike shops longer than anyone I know I am going to defer to him as the authority on bikes. If I were a trial lawyer and needed an expert witness on bikes I’d call Brent.

Which is not a bike?

The first person to guess correctly gets a free can of CarboRocket.

    it’s the fourth picture from the top (the gut in the jeans in front of the counter). I think so because a spark plug doesn’t belong on a bike!

    Yea, the motor cycle, fourth one down! Not human powered, so give up the Rocket to the humans that power!

    Anything with a motor is not a bicycle. That’s why we have the words moped, motorcycle, electric bike, etc.

    the dude in the skirt/kilt has a rig (not to be confused with a gf rig) with one wheel. hence, it’s a unicycle. a bicycle has two wheels. bi=2, get it?

    Those are all bikes silly, even the electric one and ESPECIALLY Cory’s tall bike. What I should be saying is none of them are unless they are GOLD bling bling. so sad.

  19. brkeyes7 October 7, 2008 at 7:25 pm #

    zed-I dig the tall bike and can’t wait to see you get knocked off the bike in a joust. Make sure and wear the kilt.

    Chelsea-and real cyclists wear gold pumps on. I gotta get me some.
