    You Ever See a BF in public but only knew them from BF... OMG!

    Today I say Mayonaise on Halsted going into the bank after hopping of his little Masi conversion.

    It was funny because I knew who he was from BF but I've never met the guy.

    I've run into people I've seen on Myspace & I've seen there name but it's a new experience being BF related and all.

    Anyone else have a similar experience?

    I've asked people if they were from BF and they gave me the WTF look.

    That's because you don't know the password. The password is "barbeque pork buns". As you seem uncomfortable with your past experience, I'll try to come in to the shop in the next couple of weeks. I'm a tall blonde and will be wearing spandex shorts and a team jersey. Just come up behind me and clearly and distinctly say the password.

    At the Stupor Bowl a couple kids recognized my bike and came up to me.
    It was cool.
    I actually had hoped it would happen more.
    Remember to say hi when you see the white Bianchi this saturday, Raygunner.

    I met some random guy at my friends house last weekend and we started talking about fixed gears and randomly he said "LBS" and then stopped and said "local bike shop" and I think I responded "internet nerd" at which point we both realized we both spend too much time on BF without having said anything about it.

    Somebody recognized me and my bike at the Crit Mass ride in Ottawa last week. Unfortunately, I don't remember their screen name or real name (sorry!).

    Train smarter; ride harder; get faster; buy lighter (but not neccessarily in that order)

    Me too. Especially at Critical Mass.

    And everytime raygunner posts, I do a double take because I worked with someone named Ray Gunn.

    I had someone recognize me from a photo of my bike too. They said it was their computer desktop. They were just visiting town too. He was definitely shocked. It was a good time.

    I know who a lot of the NYC people are because I've seen them around... but I *think* only one knows who I am. FUN!

    Sometimes I'll just ask random guys who I see around San Francisco on track bikes if they're BF'ers. It's gotten me into more trouble than I'd care to mention.

    The only person I know is Sean/ $0.00/gal because I knew him pre-BF. Other than that I haven't been able to put faces to BFers.

    So if you see a fat black girl with dreadlocks rolling on an ugly yellow fuji mixte, give me a fist pump.

    i was in a bike shop in dc with sashae last weekend, and two guys recognized my interweb self...
    "hey bumblebee!" and "it's janie!"
    the first guy recognized my bag. the second guy was on flickr and recognized janie. he asked if his bike could have its photo taken with janie:

    at races lots of people from BF introduce themselves - several who are more lurkers than posters. i think this is all cuz i post alot, i post alot of photos, and my stuff is all sorta different.
