I tweeted a link from Bike Intelligencer who described it as “worst JRA ever!“, and somebody asked me,
“JRA” means “Just Riding Along,” which a bike shop meme having to do with strange bicycle failures, especially if warranty issues are involved. “I was Just Riding Along when my brand new bike spontaneously exploded!”
Usage at the bike shop might be something like this: “Hey chief,” says the bike shop mechanic with the customer present. “Can we do anything about this JRA broken handlebar?”
What are your JRA stories?
