Last Call- Baby Biker Edition

Baby Biker
While this probably would raise the hackles of the modern safety-minded individual, I’m guessing that 50 years ago the saddle bag baby carrier would have generated high fives for its ingenuity rather than frantic calls to child protective services like today. And it even works if you have twins!
Last Call indicates the end of Hooniverse’s broadcast day. It’s meant to be an open forum for anyone and anything. Thread jacking is not only accepted, it’s encouraged.

    That'd be awfully hard to explain during a traffic stop…

    Ah, the strange British sport of Cyclocross… or what started out as a strange British sport, and then became the billion dollar global Cyclocross industry. Much the same way the Marin County, CA pastime of hanging onto a Schwinn Typhoon for dear life while hurtling down fire roads on Mt Tamalpais (a.k.a. re-pack runs, for the necessary re-packing of your coaster brake bearings) became the global billion dollar Mountain Bike industry.
    Happy Two Wheel Tuesday! Enjoy 9 minutes of Brits gleefully throwing perfectly good bicycles into the canals of Northumberland, fishing them out, carrying them up muddy hills while trying to retain their footwear, and occasionally experimenting with the seat and drive systems. (Despite the title, it's probably 1960 at the earliest.)

      From the folks who brought us the Cheese Roll race. This's fantastic. The commentary especially. Thanks.

      While hilarious to watch, it seems like winning here would be easy if you simply didn't bother to bring a bike along.
      In the unlikely event they insist you need one, you could simply sprint the track on foot, then steal the bike from the chap behind you when within yards of the finish, insisting it was your bike all along…

    Mine would probably fit…

    Am I the only one who looked at the picture and thought "Cool, a GTS1000!"?

    A friend sent me this recently — seemed appropriate.

      (I just want to see if the plus-sign shows up in Disqus, ID hated it.)

        I don’t hate it as much as I usually hate new stuff. I’d like to resize and delete pictures, and am mighty ambivalent about the whole sign-my-name-if-I-upvote thing, with this caveat: Downvoting Schmo will no longer be anonymous.
        All in all, liking it, though I’ll be honest and say I miss my reputation points. Wasn’t aware how attached I was to that until it was gone.

          Downvoting is anon in Disqus. I’m starting to think upvoting should be, too.

            Apologies–I just downvoted you to see for myself.
            Agreed regarding upvoting, amigo.
