BSNYC Friday Fun Quiz!

Guess what?

School's closed on Monday again.

That means so am I.

Yep, that's right, no post here on Monday the 12th.  However, I'll be updating the Bike Forecast in the meantime, and I'll be back here on Tuesday the 13th with regular updates.

And now, I'm pleased to present you with a quiz.  As always, study the item, think, and click on your answer.  If you're right you're right, and if you're wrong you'll see roadie freestyle.

Thanks very much for reading, ride safe, and ride safely.

Woah! I don't remember some of these from the course syllabus!

Really? Podium? I thought the track stand was pretty sweet, but his bunny hops are weak.

Only in Mid Town would you see such a get up. said...

Three pints last night, won't even look at the quiz. That costume, or kit, looks like a reverse wedgie, wicked on the man junk. Might as well just put it all in a vice and screw it shut. And sitting on a bike seat (of course I meant saddle), how do they say forget about it in Brooklyn?

BamaPhred said...

Wanted to see bikeskillz guy take a header off that bike sooooo bad. Scranus.

Lieutenant Oblivious said...

Top ten Scrani and I read it and passed (barely) the quiz!

bad boy of the sooth said...

Holy Smokes!well,it looks like reform school for me.un-aced it.
Enjoy the weekend, y'all.

Some guy from upstate said...

Oops, guess I need to refresh when I get to the bottom. Wonder if I'll see any of those Wal-Mart bikes in the Black Fly tomorrow.

g. said...

Walmart bike page has neosporin and BandAids as related products. Take from that what you will about the "gravel" bike.

Pink Floyd The Wall said...

I'm opening a private school and it's going to be closed six days a week. Bloggers everywhere will want to send their kids there.

JLRB said...

BamaPhred - Glad I'm not the only one!

I like how the quiz crossed over to the TA - cross-selling free content!

Oh Man, quiz already, darn, my Kaplan class doesn't get out for another hour.

Dem dar Catfish got filleted up right good last night. Batter to make fish tacos out of dem than ice skeeters.

Thomas Edison said...

Q5: "The world's largest (only Babble knows for sure - Janine has never weigh in)..."

Needs a bigger headlight

Very Slim Pickens said...

That bonus video; they kept crossing the yellow line, I thought a semi was bound to get them, or at least a SWAT Team of cops would give them a ticket.

leroy said...

Ride safe all because think of the children, seniors, NYPD, pizza rat, and all fellow New Yorkers.

I stop at red lights and stop signs... because I'll have a fucking stroke if I ride too long!
All this new infrastruk-cha and bike lanes etc (the 2 way Christie Street lane to the bridge is nice) guilts me into following rules more nicey nicey. Let's face it, where the fuck am I going. Oooo, Strava said I have a personal best on Delancey because I passed a big fat red light. Who gives a crap.
Shoal me all you want, I can't catch you any more. Well, some I still can.

Watching for the moonrise for pix yesterday and I thought there would ust be a big fat grey and white sky. All my shit plus the Nikon (you pronounce it neekon if you're in the know I found out) and gorilla pod. Then crossing into Brooklyn the fucking sky turns all crazy red yellow purple magenta and a few colors they didn't name yet.
Made it up to the top deck of the Home Depot parking lot in/near Red Hook for some height.

Gowanus canal all orangy (from sunset, not oil/pcb/dredging/sewage/storm runoff etc).
Hopefully there will be a decent moonrise tonight.

So today the orange took a step towards the peach word

If he testifies he will become a peach because he lies and will get caught
And as they say here in the swamp - it's not the crime it's the cover up

Or maybe it's just a conspiracy

That is a Penny two farthing fat trike not a bike!

Data, guess half robot.

Steertube said...

I like a quill stem on a bike. I also think a quill pen is all write.

Crust bikes has a lugged steel disc frame with a quill stem

What's the over under on catfish tossed on the ice tonight?

LOOK WHAT I FOUND ON THE CRAIGSLISTS! #lonewolf https://denver.craigslist.org/bik/6146120309.html

Pist Off said...

Wow that Lotus is something. "I rode it around my block once," I guess we all need a hobby. Most of us don't spend thousands restoring exotic bicycles meant for one race. That would be silly right?

Alice Cooper said...

School's out
for Monday

Lieutenant Oblivious said...

Would that Craigslist Lotus be considered a lower case "r" foil?

Lieutenant Oblivious said...

or a "z" foil when viewed from the nondrive side?

Pist Off said...

Re the Lotus, I'd call it a "why" foil but I'm pretty cynical about biek racing

Frickus Rungus said...

I saw this brake out in front of the library yesterday on a free-spirit ten speed:
disc-brakes-nothing-new-under-sun

It was way cooler than the lotus...

JLRB said...

Frickus - Nice find! Stingray - no helment - dragster helment required

Cozy bysticle said...

Do you really live in NY? Or Nigeria? Do Schools close so oft or do they charge you p/day and we did not buy enouf of your books?

BikeSnobNYC said...

Cozy bysticle,

The New York City Department of Education publishes the schedule online if you're genuinely interested in when and why the schools are closed.

Cozy bysticle said...

Too late. I was on a blog abstinence crisis and I already asked the public library of Fredonia to order 7 copies off your 7 books.
Are schools in NY better than NJ (according to OECD / PISA evaluation)?

dancesonpedals said...

I would give my right testicle for that Lotus..of course it is the smaller of the two (nuts) and I've had a vasectomy

McFly said...

dop,
I read an article that you still have a 1/2000 chance of impregnating your significant other. So I systematically pull out every 2000th time.

Lieutenant Oblivious said...

First NYC Citibike death reported last night. Condolences to the victim and his family.
