OMG, the BIggest Mountain Bike I’ve Ever Seen – It’s the “DirtySixer” with Wheels One Yard Tall – “Lebron: Call Us”

Wednesday, May 8th, 2013

Have you seen Lebron James on a Cannondale? It’s not pretty.

So, to solve that kind of problem, here comes The DirtySixer MTB with 36 inch tires.

There it is, parked at Erin Sherbert’s favorite bike rack - it’s next to the very same rack but look how different the bikes’ tires are:

Looking at this thing freaked, me, out.

Now myself, I’m 6 foot 1 and a ton of fun so you’d figure one of these rigs would be great for me. But no, I’m not even close to qualifying for the DirtySixer club. You gotta be like 6 foot 5 or taller to fit proper.

Perhaps District Eight Supervisor Scott Wiener could use one of these rides for Bike To Work Day 2013 tomorrow?  Why not?

Oh, the expense, what must be the crushing expense. I can only imagine what the MSRP is. That’s real titanium for the frame, BTW.

Now myself, I’ll have to make do with the MTBs sold for $200-something at the Marin Bikes Warehouse at 7th and Folsom in SoMA. (Fulton Street in 1st gear: Fuck, why can’t 1st gear be  lower? Broadway Tunnel eastbound (scary scary): Fuck, why can’t 21st gear be higher? It’s like I’m being punished by Shimano for not spending enough or something.)

Anyway, contact Dave French if you’re interested.

All the deets.

The Lincoln Lawyer: Know Your Tall, Bearded, Republican Pols – Supervisor Scott Wiener and President Abraham Lincoln

Monday, December 3rd, 2012

Have you seen the Sunday NYT? It features San Francisco’s very own Supervisor Scott Wiener.

Check it and note the closeted Republican theme.

All right, babe, try to pose like Abraham Lincoln – that’s it, sober, sober, c’mon give me a lot more sober, that’s it, hold it, hold it, CLICK:

Oh what’s that, Gentle Reader? You’ve been to City Hall and you know for a fact that the wood inside the big chambers up on the second floor doesn’t actually glow IRL.? All right, well let’s tone that down, thusly:

How about a Lincoln hat? Here you go:

Now we’re going to lose the hat but go full desaturated. I think we’ve reached endgame:

Scott Wiener Uses YouTube to Announce He’s Running for District 8 Supervisor

Wednesday, July 8th, 2009

Via SF FYI Net, we discover San Francisco Deputy City Attorney Scott Wiener (the preferred spelling of “weiner” is w-I-E-n-e-r, as in “Vienna“) just officially announced his candidacy today for District 8 Supervisor on the YouTube.

It looked a little like this, complete with elevator dings – listen for them:

Scott  joins Rafael Mandelman, Laura Spanjian and Rebecca Prozan as the putative frontrunners in the replace-Bevan Dufty-race, which is just a “short” 16 months away.

PRINCIPAL SKINNER: Whoever did this is in very deep trouble.

MARTIN: And a sloppy speller, too! The preferred spelling of “weiner” is w-I-E-n-e-r, though E-I is an acceptable ethnic variant.

PRINCIPAL SKINNER: Good point.
