O.K., inspired by a combination of Willam Karsten's necessary spark in getting "riding fixed" rolling, Mayo's intoxicating command of the english language, a Fugazi kick I've been on recently, and the 5th Lagunitas Rich Ale of the evening, I've decided to rally the troops here at Bikeforums to get a zine together of, by, and for the people of Bikeforums. Within these forums I've read enchanting tales of tours, unbelievable daily commutes through the most hellish of conditions, and general bikespeak that keeps me logging back on for more. There's certainly enough content here for several different publications.
This is a call for bike pictures, commuting stories, news of the cycling weird, childhood bike memories, bicycle haikus, bicycle poems, bicycle songs, bike cartoons, bike art, trail tales, bicycle love, bicycle lust, bicycle betrayal, bicycle sex?!?, fiction or non-fiction, as long as cycling is at its heart.
Send 'em to me, either via PM or e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
