I Am A Big Crab

Crotchety. Cranky. Crusty. Curmudgeonly. Crabby. So many C words! They all describe how I'll seem after today's video. That's a shame, because I couldn't be happier, really. Riding to work is going super well and I'm beginning to feel the health benefits and general joy-joys associated with cycling again.

That said, certain things just can't help but annoy. Certain sounds. Bike sounds, like a chain that sounds more like a big family of mole rats, or a different sound like the one in the video. Many people wouldn't be bothered by it. I, on the other hand, can't hear it without wincing.

Also, certain common behaviours bug me. Watch the video, let me know if I'm being too harsh, or agree with me, whatever. So long as you have an awesome weekend that hopefully includes your bike!




Yer Pal,

I couldn't live with that chain rub..... Any noise like that would spoil my ride....

Another "C"! Awesome man.

Your head would explode, working in a bike shop. Mine does on a nearly daily basis, I just manage to internalize it a lot of the time, sort of like underground nuclear bomb testing.

I love you man. And that's not just the beer talking.

Let's not forget one last "C" word - "Canadian!"
