Interesting. So I take a front wheel off and toss it into a bag and I'm golden? That would rule pretty ****ing hard.

I will have to look into that. Perhaps we can discuss it tonight.

And thanks for the offer, pnc. I'm not sure what Erik and Laura think about Critmass or what they feel about it.

I'm pretty sure Erik's still a ways away from getting on a bike. But we'll see tonight, maybe.

I can't guarantee, that taking of just the front wheel counts as disassembling, but I think it would be worth trying. Worst case they won't let you take Metro or you have to take off the rear wheel, too.
Have fun tonight!

dude. the metro employees don't care. just take the wheel off, throw it in a bag, and print up the policy and carry it with you.

I want to make sure Tink gets the props he deserves as designer/puppetmaster behind the whole tee operation. Yeeeeeey! I mean yaaarrrr! Without such an awesome design and positive attitude (in a pirate kind of way), I would not have wanted to deal with all the inking tribulations, and tee size B.S. etc. Thank ye Tink! Credit where credit's due. I'm happy to be able help make the dream of street pirate world domination a reality. >>tear<<<

The tees look great on the pictures. Too bad I couldn't make it last night.

hmm. I thought for sure I had joined a cult. What other goal would there be when the pirate spaceships arrive?

PS I have your shirt(s) for next time.

Does Timbuk3 make a big enough bag for a pista? It would be too poetic to have a chrome bag with a pista enclosed.

to cut to the chase, the moral of the story here is to make pirate faces to avoid red-eye: http://flickr.com/photo_zoom.gne?id=...1283235&size=l

Yup. The major thing is that your nasty,dirty,greasy bicycle is fully enclosed so it doesn't soil some honest citizen's suit.

Of course,you're still liable to get sticky from all the food and drink people are consuming on the trains these days. And if there's an emergency,you ain't getting to the exit doors,cause there'll be a dozen Hummer-sized strollers blocking your way.
