Bicycle Max

Hi all, I hope you’re having a good day. On my ride this morning I greeted some guy in Webcor/Team Alto Velo kit riding a Waterford; he ignored me completely but whatever. Enjoy the news and bikey links below the photo of my wheel.

    On the CarMax ad, it's just another media portrayal of bikes as quaint playthings. Farmer's Insurance has an ad that is even worse – the subtext of which is 'let us help you be normal and get back into a car.' Here's a video posting of the ad if you want to watch.
