So this dude must have rolled through a stop sign or something because he’s got a brake. Matt shares my sentiments though “really? you’ve got nothing else to do?”. Sucks!

    Maybe he got busted for that seat angle…

  • 700c4Life

    I believe the citation was for improper saddle angle…

    I actually think he got pulled over for seat-angle.

  • Matt

    Really? I would have pulled him over just for having his saddle at such a stupid angle. It’s not a bmx bike…

    obviously fining him for not taking velocity sticker off of that rim! and the saddle angle! sheesh, they will never learn any other way!

    I was about to leave a comment on the seat angle, but I’m clearly late.

  • spaceboy

    i did hear a messenger got pulled over for speeding here once, tho. if you can believe that.

  • neanderthal

    maybe it was for having the bull horns upside down

    that cop actually hands out tickets to cyclists like candy here in San Diego. I have 2 no brakes tickets.

    You can fight them and win, but it still sucks.

    Yo Morgan:

    What kind of fender is that in the photo above? I’ve been lookin for a rear fender that attaches to the seat tube (instead of the seat post) but haven’t been able to find one

    anybody know?

  • Andy

    That could be a zefal fender. They have one that connects like that.

    yo jus, that fender is the zefal flamingo, pretty sure they discontinued it in black. not sure why, it was my favorite clip on fender

  • http://projekto-b.blogspot.com Morgan Taylor

    Yep, it’s a Zefal Flamingo. Fits the big bikes just fine but doesn’t clear as well on smaller bikes with less space above the seat stay bridge. On my old Rocky I had to insert it from the seat tube side because the part that goes around the seat tube wouldn’t fit through the hole.

    thanks, dudes. keep mashin
