Saw a guy on the ride home today on a Fixed Gear, from a distance it looked like a disc on the back, but, beside him at the lights on Oxley road at Corinda. Rear Wheel. Covered in Beer Coasters. XXXX. VB. Vic Bitter. Bondi Blonde. Asahi. Hoegaarden. Corona
Ok, you’re just trying to wind me up and it ain’t going to work. Of course these are ok. I just think spoke cards need to be earned, not just put in cause say ‘Cranky Sunday’ goes for a ride to the cafe or whatever.
They should be an achievment, that’s all I’m saying.
Well you better not expect a nod now But seriously - why should you care what others do? Yo know what you have achieved, and celebrate that with your cards… What others do can never destroy that unless you make the decision yourself. So like you know… what-EVER!
…but is it? Think of all the symbolism that the piece of laminated card represents. Pain, achievement, suffering and hard work. hahaha…
Very early on I decided not to put spoke cards on my bike, mainly because they brought too much attention. It’s even better now that I full front/rear mudguards, nobody on Brunswick/Chapel St’s even notice the bike. “Just another commuter” they probably think, and that’s fine with me.
