What the hell kind of a bicycle is that? What the hell kind of a bicycle is that?
Examine the bicycle in the foreground. No, seriously, examine it. It's easy to not notice, if you just look at the aggregate bunch of bikes on the track. Now that you've seen it, say it with me: wtf?

Google Maps for the Pocket PC seems to have a bad guess for what the nearest cell phone tower is.

NaNoWriMo represent!

Also, near as I can tell, that bike is custom-welded for some serious bounce. They've got a giant spring and an apparent pivot point between the two half-frames, but without some sort of actual shock absorber, it's likely to go flailing all over the place with every bump they hit.]

I find myself more and more often needing an LJ icon that is someone standing open-mouthed and pointing, labeled ` "..." '.

It's not even a pivot point, though. The two frames are welded together via a third, short, piece of a bike frame. (Which bears no color resemblance to the rest of the bike, incidentally.)

Zoom in to 100% view on the photo (yay ridiculous megapixels). To the left of the spring, where the dark blue (top frame) and purple (tiny connector piece) come together? The unpainted metal piece is welded on top to the blue frame, but I don't see any obvious welding connecting it to the purple. There is some sort of round protrusion that may be a connector pin/joint. That's what I was talking about.

Of course, there could be welding I simply don't see, occluded by the metal.

Looks like something C.H.U.N.K. 666 would build.

Well, I can explain the map: You're using Google Map instead of Google Maps.


Just an artifact of my having too much crap in my PDA's task bar. If only it wasn't for that pesky battery meter...
