The King of Stolen Bicycles and Bike Parts, San Francisco, the West Coast Capital of Stolen Bikes – Building FrankenbikesFriday, December 16th, 2016
The story so far, and now this:
Frisco’s Most Aggressive Driver is, and I’m Srsly, a “Tiffin Walla” Delivering Vegetarian Fare for “Green Tiffen”Friday, November 18th, 2016
Let’s see if I can pay off on the headline.
This ‘splains tings:
I’ll tell you I’m not a cop, so I couldn’t name you the numerous CVC violations I witnessed Fast and Furious over the course of about 20 seconds going from Market Sutter Sansome and then across Bush and then she lost me. Everybody has different standards for what’s appropriate driving, but geez, man. (It’s the electric assist what encourages this, IMO.)
Adrian founded Green Tiffin in fall of 2013 in San Francisco, although the idea seed was planted early in his childhood.
Now where was I? Oh:
– Guaranteed base hourly pay + delivery incentive
– Zip through San Francisco hills with Green Tiffin electric bicycles
– Look sharp in our delivery coat
– FREE healthy and sustainable lunch on workdays
– A pathway for development
– A fun and fast-paced working environment
I’ll tell you, a cab company in Frisco used to have a “racing” system of dispatch where the closest driver would be assigned a fare but others were free to swoop in to get there first – this was to prevent cabbies from lying too much about how close they were to the customer. Anyway, one time two cabbies working for the same outfit crashed into each other trying to win this game so that ended the racing system of dispatch.
And now Green Tiffen.
I’ll tell you Green Tiffen, I don’t think you’re on a “sustainable journey.”
They said it couldn’t be done:
Hollywood is Back, Now Filming in Golden Gate Park – But Double Parked Mercedes-Benzes Block Area Cyclists – A Yuuuge ProductionThursday, November 10th, 2016
I’ll tell you, Hollywood just doesn’t get our local parking rules:
Anyway, this is a large production, with many people and vehicles on site today near our Rose Garden
Of course, RPD has Rangers on site, but they’re sitting around far away near Stow Lake. And really, the requirement to have them is more of a jobs program than anything else. (So as long as Hollywood pays RPD’s high fees I don’t think a Park Ranger cares what they do – nobody’s likely to try to enforce rules on our paying guests.)
So the “creatives” from Los Angeles County feel put upon because they have to pay big bucks to work in a very expensive place* and then our locals resent the Angelenoses’ general cluelessness.
And it’s like, “We’d be better off in Vancouver,” and I’m like yes! Maybe you all would be…
*NBC’s Trauma was like this. Filming on location was an attempt to make it special but that meant that it couldn’t survive with anything less than yuge ratings
Someday I’ll ride one of these big heavy bikes, definitely for 30 minutes or less though…
(BABS / Ford doesn’t care what you think about BABS, not really. It will give you half your money back if you get confused by its marketing and end up getting charged ten times more than you thought you would, IF you contact them about your experience, so there’s that…)
