Cyclists should be forced to have insurance

Oh how I love arguing with bike haters.  Well not really.  They are pig headed, arrogant and can be dangerous when driving.  The vast majority of them drive cars, while talking on their phones, eating or speeding.  Then they have the nerve to say that cyclists do not follow the rules of the road and are rude arrogant road hogs.  The mere presence of cyclists is somehow offensive to the… Read More »

Bike Packing 101

Bike Packing 101 I have now participated in three RAGBRAI’s.  That is three times I have had to pack my bike up in a box and hope she is not damaged in the process.  I have learned a lot over the last three years.  I no longer trust the animals at TSA to touch my baby.  I am convinced that they open the box, hit everything with a hammer and… Read More »

New Product- WiseCracker Bottle Opener

New Product- WiseCracker Bottle Opener Every now and then an invention comes on to the market and you think to yourself, ‘Why the hell didn’t I think of that?’  In this case it was literally the truth.  I have considered adding a bottle opener to my bike.  However, I was unable to come up with something so simple and elegant as  The WiseCracker Bottle Opener.  It is a headset spacer,… Read More »

Number 1 Prick of the year!

As a cyclist sometimes I have to laugh at myself and my fellow cyclists.  That is how CYCLEBUTTCRACK.com was born.  Being a big fan of satyrical music and music videos… I present this.  I cracks me up!  BTW it appears to be shot in Portland, OR.  Notice the hat under the helmet and the Subaru with the bike rack.  Can’t get much more cliche than that 🙂  Enjoy! 

Post Sandy Riding.

I posted earlier about people riding to work in NYC after Sandy.  This is a tragic situation which I would wish not to be repeated, but there is a small silver lining.  People in this city, temporarily at least have learned to appreciate their two wheeled human powered transport.  Hopefully many new cycle-commuters created.  So here is another look at the NYC post Sandy Commute.  CYCLEBUTTCRACK is your purveyor of CHEEKY… Read More »

Bicycle recovery

http://blogs.wsj.com/metropolis/2012/11/01/novice-cyclists-dust-off-their-bikes-after-the-storm/ It is hard to imagine what the residents of the areas affected by Sandy are going trough.  Gas is scarce due to power outages which are affecting millions of people.  Mass transit is crippled due to flooding. Millions have lost their homes.  Being a born and raised Westerner, this still seems distant to me…  But this is a truly tragic event which I hope to never see again in… Read More »

Presidential Cycling Debate.

In honor of the debates, I thought I would dig up some photos of candidates on bicycles.  I found this photo of Obama on a bicycle.  Ugh…  Mr. President is not exactly inspiring confidence with his ride.  At least he is wearing a helmet.  Then Senator Obama was riding a Trek commuter with a flat tire, and what is up with that fender?  It looks like a tail!  The only… Read More »

Conflict resolution…

Picture if you will an event distant and a long time ago.  Your friendly blog writer had a girlfriend living at his house.  Shocking!  How is that possible that this cretin had a female of the opposite sex interested in him?  It is still a question I ask myself on a daily basis.  While the relationship came to a predictable end (she came to her senses and left) It did… Read More »

The process of bicycle fabrication is fascinating to me.  You have the big companies producing thousands of bikes in Taiwan.  They make great bikes, however the idea of having a bike made specifically for me would make me as happy as a little girl.  A bike that fits like a glove that makes me comfortable and faster.  Seven is american made, custom and use Titanium as well as carbon….  Ooooooh Titanium!  I sould find and… Read More »

Mutherf$*king Bike

Since I have discovered this video, it has become the theme song of my life.  I love this song!  There are several members of the cycling community portraid in this video, including the aggressive commuter, the sideburn wearing hipster, fixie rider and the overly competitive road cyclist.  I most closely identify myself with the overly competitive roadie…  However, I can see a little bit of me in each of these characters even though I… Read More »
