What stupid thing(s)

are on your two wheeled machine with spokes? (Sorry, can't make this b**e related here )

I have an orange band on the handlebar of my Caldera. Since I couldn't have orange accents.

Worst I've got is an improperly set up cadence monitor on my Specialized, I wired it all on the wrong side when I wasn't thinking and just following directions and now I don't have any more zip ties to redo it.

...I really need to remember to get some more zip ties this weekend.

I have a pink headset spacer on all my bikes to help raise awareness for the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.

A couple of people have said that I was stupid to pay $20 for a few headset spacers.

For a bike I put some effort into making somewhat light, the rear dual blinky mount I made with parts from the LHS (local hardware shop) is pretty stupid. The fact that someone would have to be certifiably blind to not see me going down the road makes up for this stupidity some.


(an earlier incarnation of the mount on the old bike, but you get the picture)

I have a 4 inch strip of Salsa rasta-colored cork tape on my mountain bike stem. I don't know why it's still there.

When I change the bar tape on my Litespeeds, I save the old bar tape that says "Litespeed" all over it and put it on things like my $10 Ross ten speed beater. Or my single speed that is spray painted black.
My friend who has a bike shop took "Joker" stickers (the evil court jester) that were replacements for a BMX bike and put them on the lower fork legs on my Giant MTB.

Bailey wearing goggles on the trike?

OK, but the company that makes the goggles makes fancy looking goggles of all colors with rhinestones etc. and matching sunglasses for the dog owner. It could be done in a stupid way.

I glued on a canadian leaf that was my grandfathers. My stupid things include quite a few stickers on, pink zip ties, and I do have a whale blow hole. The only problem with it is it is annoying and get's in the way when you try to ride.

A WHAT??? What exactly do you do with a whale blow hole??? JON??? Is there something you need to tell us? Does this have something to do with that coil spring shock you have?
