    Beer and Bikes, Inseperable

    I knew that fixies on the track and beer were cosmically linked. Now I have proof.

    Except for that "tip-it" beer. The drinker of that is always the buzzkill.

    The dorm rooms at my school used to be old hotel rooms, so in the bathrooms[each room has a bathroom] there is a bottle opener screwed to the wall. They screw holes on the bottle opener is spaces the same as the water cage screws. Good for those rides you want to crack open those pesky non twist off bottles/

    What do hotel guests need a bottle opener for? In the bathroom of all places?

    I can't think of any good reason why I'd want to open my beer right beside the toilet, really. Ugh. And then, under the sink?
    Weird people, these Americans...

    Just to ease the pain that causes: the brits are even more weird. Separate hot & cold water taps??? You either burn your hands or freeze them. WTF?

    If you've never had a fresh beer while sitting on the crapper, you're missing out!

    Its mostly because those taps are ancient! They had them like that everywhere. Hungary probably never had them because you only got access to hot water recently and a new design had already been come up with.

    And the shower man. I have a cupholder set up in there and everything. I also have one set up on the wall next to where I put my bike trainer. That way I can ride, drink, and watch tv all at the same time. I'm fine on the stationary, but I'm still working on being able to reach for it on the rollers without starting to fall...

    you put the garbage can underneath the opener to catch to caps.

    and there is nothing quite as good as a shower beer after a lake beer to start off an evening of porch beer.

    There truly is nothing better than a cold Vic after a hot day of pouring molten steel.

    Someone actually means 'If you're not now you never were'? Who would have thunk it? I saw a cat with his hand 'X's tattooed on smoking dust one time. I giggled like a loon.
    If it's worth the going it's worth the ride.

    I don't like beer being so associated with biking.

    EXACTLY what i was getting at. or at least what i was thinking. i was getting at how selling out is dumb and you should think about thinks before you do them. it bums me out that i can't go to any bike related event and not have been being consumed, except for maybe at the track during uci organized races. I dunno. it's a bummer. oh well...it's nice to know that dumb people get to ruin awesome bikes riding drunk.
