A bit of a salve to soothe that horse pill the Nuckle Nation had to swallow a few days ago. The King is dead. Classic call.
Check out the fella i just hired to manage the Whistler store this summer. You can come in anytime and get blown by a unicorn.
I don’t know why, but today i started thinking about the Softride. Remember those bikes?!! Looked Weird. I never really knew what to make of them. Thought they were kinda gay actually if the truth were to be told. But they must have worked….kinda. So i searched our loyal and trusty purveyor of arcanery and shit you thought u were done with- the internet. And of course i came up with the obligatory Softride/Allsop pic:
But i also came up with something softer and plushier:
But also found something a bit harder and more provocative….yeah!!!!
Okay okay, i’m getting infantile here. So who rides these things anyways??
Sorry getting off track here. The Softride was actually the center piece of a BIKE magazine running article called The Shit Bike. They took this bike and gave it to pro riders to thrash. Ryan Leech actually had a go. So i googled Shit Bike and this is the FIRST image the googleator came up with:
It wasn’t until image #60 did the engine of search find the real Shit Bike:
And these are the types you would expect to bump into on a shit bike:
But would bypass them quickly to chat up Anna on her semi- Softride ( but also a shit bike btw).
