Order: Level 2 Velominatus

38 year old college student. Former carpenter, current jerk and professional beer consumer. O yeah I ride bikes a lot and sometimes ''race'' cross.

I don’t mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that’s how it comes out. - Bill Hicks That famous quote from the Greatest Comedian Of All Time™ has resonated with me for many years. It became my silent mantra, as I don’t suffer fools gladly and sometimes don’t make much effort to conceal the fact. Lately, I̵...

  1. do you need sex lube, and fart jokes to be your way of vetting someone, I fucking hate this quallity in most Straight men, the whole fart,shit,dick,pussy, comedy bit is a little old, »

The Bike. It is the central tool in pursuit of our craft. A Velominatus meticulously maintains their bicycles and adorns them with the essential, yet minimal, accoutrement. The Rules specify the principles of good taste in configuration and setup of our machines, but within those principles lies almost infinite room for personal taste.It seems in s...

Brad Wiggins is sitting at home, watching his team implode at a Tour de France he was not invited to.What’s on his mind? An attempt at the Hour Record, that’s what. Now that the UCI has allowed riders to mount a conventional (track) time trial machine in their efforts and the likes of Boardman, Obree, Moser, Rominger, and Indurain all...

  1. @thefringthing Not sure what I think about them being able to use pursuit bikes other than maybe the idea is that it would be more apealing to attempt for TT guy’s, I guess if get’s people more excited about it I am ok with it . »

Rule #33- Legs are to be carefully shaved at all times.This is one of the Rules that really defines the term Cyclist to the Velominati. Discussions about Rule #33 flare up on the site occasionally, burn brightly then smolder out. Between faces and legs, it is a lot of man-scraping. Rule #33 is a task master. Compliance is one thing, defending i...

  1. @Mike_P @Mike_P Wow guy’s, Just trying to say lots of other athletes seem to be shaving there legs too, seems to be getting more main stream. Fuck it I love Football, always will. I love cycling, always will. »

  2. @Beers Plenty of footballers are looking pretty hairless as well these days, Ronaldo, and Sanchez come to mind, Nobody has given me shit for it in a long time. »

Attention all Velominati. The Tour VSP is going on line and it should be a good one. Sure, between Froomy and Bertie a person could hedge their bets but Moviestar is all in for Valverde, BMC for TeeJay, Astana for the Shark and Garmin is finally committing to a team leader in Talansky. Some other teams (ahem…Trek Factory Racing for one) have...

  1. Wow, had a feeling about Froomy, after crashing yesterday yikes, I don’t like him but I didn’t want that to happen to the poor fucker, thats bike racing. Lots of respect for Nibali. »

Why are women’s races run concurrently with men’s races? I would get it if it was the women’s Tour de France, but I don’t get it when it is the women’s Giro in July. Since the Tour de Swiss there has been a lack of stage racing (in my TV watching schedule) and seemingly a perfect time to present a women’s stage r...

Cyclocross could be the most perplexing of all the cycling disciplines. To me it’s  at once the most beautiful and the most unappealing. The beauty comes from the great European races, and of course by ‘European’ I mean ‘Belgian’. The lack of appeal stems from the fact that I just don’t want to do it. It looks...

  1. Cross fucking rules, I hate it, Its the worst thing ever and the best, and the only kind of racing i do, wish it rained more hear in LA though, to hot and to dry, crashing on kitty litter and gravel sucks, I still love though can’t wait till september »

There are two ways in life to be good at something. The first way is the most obvious, which is to actually be good at something. This is harder than it sounds because you need things like skills, talent, fortitude, and light sabers. The other way doesn’t require those things but it has its own challenges; basically, you have to be holistical...

  1. @unversio It looks better in reality than top of Taylor’s head too. The cat I passed had the white one. Not usually  a fan of white helmets, I am tiny and look funny in them, but it looked fantastic from my angle on the gent  that I saw. »

  2. Passed someone today waring the new Giro lid, I have to say I think they got it right. low profile, vented, aero, minimal, I want one, »

  2. @Minnesota Expat Thanks, I’m not built for the classics anyway. It’s my Mom’s fault for giving her dyslexic child a name like that, you think I would learn my lesson i just go by Tony, but you can’t really switch at 38 can you. I should be fine as they… »

  3. Just out of curiosity, how come the overall has not been updated after the Giro. wondering were we are at with this, Thanks »

The Tour de Suisse can be everyone’s warm-up for the Tour de France, including all you VSP dreamers. The big show seems to be the Critérium de Dauphanié this year, as far as Tour de France contenders go but the Tour de Suisse still has some big guns showing up. Twiggo is here, not for a Tour warm up, unless people are worried about Richie P...
