Misc from AMNH in NYC

If you're on an iPhone or iPad, go here for the pics...

Okay, while walking around the American Museum of Natural History in NYC, I saw plenty of interesting stuff... But as you can imagine, it's not the easiest place to take pics... low light, no tripods allowed, glass between you and everything and SWARMS of people. Anyway, I took *some* shots thanks to my camera's super high ISO rating...

Friends Don't Let Friends Buy Department Store Bikes

I'm NOT a bike snob. I think that any bike that any person has is a good bike. I've seen many, many, many inexpensive bikes with decades of service, miles and miles of history, and with the right rider, used more proficiently than any boutique bike.

That being said, department store bikes are crap, and it's an insult to any consumer that bike companies even try to market these bike-like contraptions. Forget the fact that most bikes in department stores are assembled in a manner to make them--at best--a bitch to ride--and at worst--considerably dangerous to ride.
