IDK, man, I’d prolly put the period inside of the quote mark, you know, “thusly,” as opposed to “thusly”, but that’s just how I (and about half a billion American English talkers) roll.

(Man, that narrow 10-speed chain is doing a lot of work.)
With electric assist, prices start at $5900. If you want a garage to park this hefty rig at night, prices start at … [pinkie bite] $1 million dollars.
Later on, all can join in on the fun, as here:

HOW WEIRD IN OUTER SPACE – The 15th annual How Weird Street Faire
Sunday May 4, 2014, Noon to 8pm
Howard and 2nd Streets, Downtown San Francisco, Earth, Sol, Milky Way
$10 requested donation
All the deets:
“On May the Fourth, the How Weird Street Faire will fill the streets of San Francisco with a celebration unlike anything you’ve experienced before… HOW WEIRD IN OUTER SPACE! An epic journey to a place of weirdness and creativity and peace. How Weird features galactic-class music and art, dancing, performances, technology exhibits, unique vendors from across the planet, and thousands of people in colorful costumes.
You are invited to participate in the greatest street faire in the galaxy, and the start of the San Francisco festival season. Explore the furtile breeding ground for unexpected inspiration and cutting-edge innovation. Be creative at the expanding Art Alley, a vortex of varied expressions. Make new connections, and reconnect with old ones. Together, we will boldly go where no street faire has gone before.
The How Weird Street Faire showcases the full spectrum of electronic dance music styles, using advanced sound technology to fill the streets of San Francisco with the vibrations of peace and the frequencies of fun. There will be 10 stages of some of the best music, art, and sound systems in the galaxy, produced by some of the best sound collectives in the universe.
How Weird 2014 will feature dance music stages by Enchanted Forest, Muti Music, Symbiosis Gathering, Northern Nights, Opel, Opulent Temple, Pink Mammoth, SF House Music, Temple Nightclub, Space Monkeys, Pulse SF, Global Village, the boombox affair, Party Babas, Red Marines Festival, Happy Camp, Think You Can DJ Game Show, World Famous Productions, and more.
For 2014, How Weird Street Faire introduces the first National Dance Week stage, featuring dancers of every kind from every place, showcasing the diversity of terrestrial bodies in motion. There will be free dance lessons throughout the day, and a special flash mob that you can participate in. The National Dance Week stage will be next to the center intersection, and dancing will be found throughout the faire. All existence is in a complex dance of energy and vibrations, continuously moving and evolving. Dance is perhaps the best way of describing and understanding life, the cosmos, and ourselves.
Art has a way of reaching the farthest places. This year, How Weird will expand Art Alley and move it to Tehama Street. Come create at the new location, and enjoy the live and exhibited artwork and interactive Art Alley mural. Art Alley is curated by ArtIsMobilUs, a non-profit mobile public art gallery and roving arts incubator bringing art to humans everywhere.
There is a $10 requested donation at the entrances to the faire, for which you will receive a Magic Sticker. The Magic Stickers are worth hundreds of dollars in savings, and come with many free things. There will be discounts and specials at all of the vendors at the faire, and all of the faire bars. The Magic Stickers are how people can support the faire, while getting something great back in return. Check the website for all of the Magic Sticker specials.
The How Weird vendors offer many unique and creative goods for sale, including designer clothing, jewelry, art, decorations, games, and more. And there will be plenty of tasty food and drinks. This year will also feature local arts and crafts vending on Art Alley.
Costumes are required at How Weird. Come as yourself. Come as someone else. Come as something weird. Be the you you’ve always wanted to be. Space-related costumes are big this year.
The faire is open to all ages, and is handicapped accessible. The main entrance is at Howard and New Montgomery Streets, a short walk to MUNI, BART, the Transbay Terminal, and Caltrain Station. For those arriving from above, the coordinates are 37°47’12.4″ N, 122°23’53.7″ W. Join us as we journey through the cosmos in search of new and exciting experiences, expanding our perspective to the universal scale.
The How Weird Street Faire is a project of the non-profit World Peace Through Technology Organization, showing that in spite of our differences, we all dance to the same beat.

OMG, It’s Britney in Frisco, Bitches! Lovely Ms. Spears is in San Fran Today – Sipping Wine on a Marina District RooftopSunday, September 15th, 2013
Either that or Piece of Britney has things incorrect
It’s the minivan of bikes:
Click to expand
Anyway, count this as an actual sighting in the wild – usually I only see these rigs at the uber-expensive MyDutchBike sto on Market Street.
Ah let’s see here:
“Gone were last year’s cheap chinese cargo bikes, so at least no one got turned-off to cargo bikes this year…”
And there’s this:
“To sum it up, whatever “metal” the Chinese use to build their bikes out of is soft, weak, and full of impurities.”
(Hey do you know why Euros spend so much on bikes in Europe? Maybe it’s the 50% tariff on the Made-in-China competition…)
But maybe you’re a San Francisco millionaire with a garage, so here’s the spiel:
“We ship our Dutch bike, Dutch bikes, Dutch bicycles and Dutch city bikes FULLY assembled nation and worldwide. We sell utility bicycles from Amsterdam and other cities in Europe like Oma bikes, also known as Omafiets, or Oma fiets, Omafiet, Abuela, abuelas, GrannyBike or Granny bike and Grandma bicycles,Abuela bikes, Amsterdam Bike. Opa bikes also known as Opafiets, Opa fiets, Opafiet and Grandpa bike, both comfortable, stylish straight up riding position bikes that will last for decades. Check out our Fr8 bikes, or freight bike, gorgeous in everyway and extremely strong for real-life situations like school, shopping, commuting and errands around town, designed by Henry Cutler. Also from Workcycles are the Secret Service or SecretService bikes and are made with Azor frames hand build in Amsterdam. Also seen on the streets in The Netherlands or Holland is the Bakfiets, or Bak fiets, Bakfiets.nl, Cargobike, Cargo bicycle, longjohn, long john bikes, boxbike and box bike. We have them in several colors all with Shimano Nexus 3 and 8-speed hubs. We now carry the fabulous Retrovelo, some say Retro velo or Retrovello, bikes. Retrovelo bicycle unites functionality, city chic and the individualism of its rider. With models like Paul, Paula, Klaus, Klara, Otto Solo/Duo in fantastic colors. These balloon racers or ballon racers are designed by Frank Patitz in Leipzig Germany. We also sell other european bikes or euro utility bikes or Danish bikes from Denmark and Germany. We also carry Velorbis or Danish bikes. Not to mention Pashleys which are English bikes like the Guv’nor. We also have accessories like Yakkay helmets and Yakkay covers and Clarijs and Basil panniers Po Campo and Nutcase helmets and finally Carrie Swedish bicycle baskets. Don’t forget to check out our Umberto Dei bicycles from Italy too! Please visit our shop if you’re in the neighborhood. Our address is 575 Market Street, San Francisco California USA. Did you know that the following cities have the highest percentage of bicycle commuters in the U.S.A? Minneapolis MN, Sacramento CA, Portland OR, Tucson AZ, Fresno CA, Tampa FL, San Francisco CA, Oakland CA, Mesa AZ, Anaheim CA, Boston MA, Washington DC, Seattle WA, Albuquerque NM, New Orleans LA, Oklahoma City OK, Phoenix AZ, St. Paul MN, Long Beach CA, Santa Ana CA, Los Angeles CA, Honolulu HI, Denver CO, Chicago IL, Pittsburgh PA, San Diego CA, San Jose CA, New York City NY, Houston TX, Raleigh NC, Milwaukee WI, St. Louis MO, Cincinnati OH, Riverside CA and Columbus OH, in that order. You landed on the My Dutch Bike website, which is the same as MyDutchBike and MyDutchBike.com.We are open to the public. Public may also make an appointment if not able to make our normal store hours. Please visit our website for hours.”
And here’s something else, on the topic of some customer-dude’s opinion of Shimano roller brakes:
“Here’s the e-mail response to this review I received from Josh, the mechanic at My Dutch Bike:
“im glad you have all the time in the world to write BULLSHIT.
you are an idiot. I have what is called real world experience,
something you know nothing of.
get a life, you are not welcome in my company.
I’m sure youve heard this before.
I know much more than you and always will
you dont know how to read
call shimano and talk to them
i know you havent
give it up
you fucking looser”
And that’s enough for me from MDB.
