Rust Never Sleeps

The Dragon ( my bike) is in ICU. The seatpost is fused into the seat tube and we have been going at it with a hammer and chisel. Now would be the opportune time for all of you who balked at my praise for steel frames to come out of the woodwork with your “I told you so’s”.

There will likely be a new starter drafted in the coming weeks.

Now how about that “Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald” send-up S’quatch penned down below in the comments section? I think he should finish what he started.

-Check back later, for more fun and adventure at the BIGRINGCIRCUS!

  1. You like that, huh? How’s “Funkytown” work for you?:

    Gotta find my groove or a bike that’s right for me…

    A bike that keeps me movin and a groovin with some energy…

    Oh, I talk about it, talk about it, talk about it, talk about it…

    Talk about, talk about, talk about riding….

    (In the video you’d be wearing bright yellow spandex and flaunting your best disco strut around the mangled dragon. You’d do a little leap and gay karate kick every time the back-up singers hit that “Gotta Move On!” line.)

    Any other ideas for the video should chime in here.

  2. Let’s go back to that comment about folding clothes. That’s what we gave you hangers for. And remember that I bought all of your socks the same color so you didn’t have to fold them. Just pull out any two and they work. (As long as you don’t get them out of my drawer because mine had a different color ring around the top.) I’m sure you remember that. Then there is the underwear; Who folds underwear?

    Anyway, I’m proud of my boy. He showed, he rode, he finished cold. What is left to be told.

  3. I can’t believe no one posted that you can heat the tube below the join, even just boiling water poured over it, and ice the tube the seat is on, a little duct tape and a plastic bag works, then squirt a little break out where they join while you wait until they chill and warm and try again.
