BikeSnobNYC is as funny in person as he is online.

Well... he's funny in person too, at least.

His Seattle book signing was really good today.

I got my backpack signed; they sold out of books. Seattle loves it some snobbery.

Anyone get a chance to read the new book? I will probably end up ordering it.

Have read about 2/3s so far and it is very funny and actually insightful.

I'm always hearing everyone rave about him, but he just never struck me as particularly readable. Just like Dave Barry is supposedly very funny but he ain't. Same way with BikeSnob. His humor just doesn't tickle my funny bone.

I picked up his book at B&N. When I took it to the counter,the lady said,"if you want to be a bike snob,you should come to my building". I asked her what she meant,she said,"there's a guy who lives above me who has FIVE BIKES".

Did LOL.

I'm about halfway through his book, it's pretty good. Could use a little more editor in parts.
