Bike Snob NYC interview questions

Sarah @ Momentum Magazine asked me to interview Bike Snob NYC.

In Chapter 11 of his book entitled “Etiquette,” Bike Snob NYC instructs the world not to interview him. So instead of an interview, I contacted his publicist and she agreed to a “question and answer” session (but only because I blackmailed her asked nicely and said “pretty please”). The publicist also passed along a non-negotiable list of forbidden topics and qualifications, mostly involving the secret undergarments and other priestly rituals of his lobster deity cult.

And now I’m kind of lost. I’ve never interviewed a famous anonymous blogger before. What questions should I ask? What do you want to know about Bike Snob NYC? Should I post this blog post under “Celebrity” or “Stalker”?

What questions do you have for Bike Snob NYC in the question and answer session we’ll have that’s not, technically, an “interview”? Let me know in the comments.

Momentum Magazine #44

That is not a photo of BSNYC on the cover of the March Momentum Magazine. We see singer/musician Coco Love Alcorn and TO Bike Union executive director Yvonne Bambrick on issue #44 posted last night with a cover reminding us that spring is in the air!

    1. Your blog and your nom de guerre are the same. Please discuss the blog / blogger identification conundrum. Are you and your blog one in the same?

    2. Lobster is most powerful. Yet: Flying Spaghetti Monster. Explain.

    3. What comes after fixies? When will that next hot trend drop? Will you heap scorn upon it, too?

    4. Does Lobster hate fixies?

    5. I believe that it is true that you ride a bicycle. Is anything else in your blog actually true?

    How did you find the Seal of Disapproval? Was it sunning itself in San Francisco?

    How does it feel to be rolling in dough now that you've sold out to the mainstream bicycling media?
