    Even if your not from NYC this dude is funny.

    I found the Bike snob while I was reading the comments in Yehuda moon. He's hilarious and so is Yehuda.

    This dude's been around awhile. I'm surprised you didn't read about him before on bf.

    His writing is getting stale, in my opinion. Particularly his column in Bicycling - Rodale Press really took the ginger out of him.

    I don't think Rodale Press would let him print 90% or more of his previous material since he really tears into all the people, places and things that they endorse (or receive advertising money from).
    You're right; I think much of his former zing is gone. Although I do like BSNYC's blurbs more than Style Man.

    I like how he's like "You guys are dumb for wanting bike parking" and then he's like "You guys are dumb for letting your bikes get stolen." Maybe it's because you aren't ever supposed to get off of the bike. Like, the journey is the destination. Ok, I get it now.
    Go until you stop, then take a break.

    If you people want to pick him apart, feel free. I still think he's funny.

    He's very funny. I love the bike seal of disapproval. He makes fun of himself as much as anybody, not to mention some of the ridiculous stuff that happens in NYC.
