Here’s is all I know about the giant sundial:

Big, isn’t it?
See how small regular MTB wheels are in comparison?
It’s the second Dirty Sixer I’ve ever seen…
Have you seen Lebron James on a Cannondale? It’s not pretty.
There it is, parked at Erin Sherbert’s favorite bike rack. Go ahead, click the link. This shot shows 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. (Here’s me on Fulton Street in 1st gear: Man, why can’t 1st gear be lower? And here’s me in the Broadway Tunnel eastbound (scary scary): Man, why can’t 21st gear be higher? Srsly. It’s like I’m being punished by Shimano for not spending enough or something.)
Anyway, contact Dave French if you’re interested.
The Winter Olympics are going to get going tomorrow after tonight’s ceremony, but San Francisco doesn’t have an NBC affiliate so there you go. (I think the closest city of license for NBC is Fun Jose or Fresno or someplace Down South.) Here’s the rule – if you can’t see Mount San Bruno from your residence, chances are your rabbit ears won’t either.
All right then, you can always keep up at nbcolympics.com, and at the same time get your fill of ads for WalMart and the 2010 Census.
Or, alternatively, you can check out the less spammy website of the United State Olympic Committee complete with all the Web 2.0 connections you kids crave.
Everybody knows the connection between a pair of tennis shoes suspended on telephone wires overhead and drug sales by now, but what do you make of this mountain bike tire perched high above the Great Parking Lot of Civic Center (nee the 100 block of Fulton) betwixt the Asian Art Museum and our Main Library?
My guess is that it means “stolen bikes and parts are sold here.”
To support my theory I’ll add that, in actuality, stolen bikes and parts are sold here.
Buying a stolen bike for $20 on the Streets of San Francisco remains the cheapest way to replace the bike that just got stolen from you, in’nt?
I can’t recommend that course of action, but I do heartily endorse the Marin Bikes Outlet in SoMA and their policy of selling new bikes for $200-something. Check it out the next time your bike gets stolen.
The unlicensed commercial dog walkers of leash-free Bernal Heights appear to be overwhelmed at times. Perhaps each one should have an assistant – that would seem fair. Of course, there’s talk about requiring liability insurance and limiting the number pooches per businessperson, up in Marin.
How many pooches can you Spot? Click to expand, they won’t bite:
Were there any doggies inside this unattended pickup? At least one, anyway.
