The Things You Find in the Basement…

So, there I was, rummaging around the Surly Deep Dark Braincave and I saw this written on a Cuzzy's napkin:


"135mm front hub


Polo hubs in 48 hole drilling - 100mm, 120mm fix/fix, 120mm free/free, 135mm fix/fix, 135mm free/free

100mm 1x1 fork

135mm symmetrical Pug fork


120 tpi and 27 tpi tires

Tall socks

Junk Strap 6-packs

Carton of Kools"


After the Kools, the napkin was torn - as if the list was much longer and cooler, but maybe that information was too sensitive even for the inner circle.

I should also mention that the napkin looked like it had wiped off lipstick, Phil Wood grease, and possibly some Elmer's glue.There was a phone number on it too. Unfortunately, the phone number was obscured by a drawing of a dragon (I think it was a dragon) holding a banjo.

I found the napkin on Dave's bat perch.

That's all I'm saying just now.

Eric is a pretty ok guy. Tall, loud, personable, slightly annoying, mostly harmless, law-abiding, easy-going, longitudinal, forthrightly wishy-washy, slightly bent, wigged out, dopey, and marginally accident-prone. He lives on cold cereal and American macro-brews while occasionally fighting the good fight. He's fallen down in front of big crowds before, and he'll likely do it again. He sometimes zigs when he clearly should have zagged.

The Man

We've all had the odd run-in with the Man, right? You're doing something on the edge of stupid and on go the red lights. "Can I get your license and registration please?" " Sir, can you please get down from there?" "Where are your clothes son?" That sort of thing.…
