Mr. Pubes Goes To Interbike
Words and Photos by Bicycle Pubes
“Could somebody please, find Bicycle Pubes, get a hold of this mother fucker so that I can make sense out of all of this!?”
The question had been asked, by numerous people, all over the globe, possibly on other planets too. But where was the answer? More importantly, where was Bicycle Pubes? This industry is a real puzzler and Interbike needed to expertise and the cognitive capacity of a real heavy hitter to sort all of this hoity toity lithium battery open mold bullshit out.
Luckily, John Watson was off vacation and back home in LA, where he had access to the Pubes Signal. Unluckily, I cannot afford a house close enough to LA to actually see the Pubes Signal, so after several days, John just called me at home. Told me to go to Interbike. I said no I’m watching a Scrubs marathon. He said come on bro. I said OK fine. He said cool. I said fuck yeah it’s cool. Then he hung up.
Several anxiety pills and anxiety burritos later, Bicycle Pubes landed in the dogshit town that is Las Vegas. That’s me. I’m Bicycle Pubes.
Without further adieu, here is some shitty art.

For those of you who have been missing the Cub House, well, their new location is just about ready to be opened. The new locale is just a few blocks from their old spot but has wayyyyy more space and that means more goods. Be sure to catch the opening party on Friday, along with rides happening Saturday and Sunday, leaving from the Cub House and Golden Saddle. Saturday’s ride is co-supported by 100 Tacos and Floyd’s of Leadville, so expect tons of entertainment.

“This is a 100k to benefit local conservation efforts in the Piscataquog Watershed and surrounding area. All proceeds benefit the Piscataguog Land Conservancy and this year, funds will be going directly to preserve additional land preservation in my home town of Lyndeborough along Cold Brook to add to an existing trail network. It’s a good ride along scenic dirt roads here in my neck of the woods.”

Roughly 8 or maybe even 9 years ago (it’s a bit fuzzy after all these years) I started working at a bicycle shop in LA called Orange 20. The shop manager at the time Mr. Kyle Kelley aka Trackosaurus Rex hired me to work in the new larger space they had just rented. Soon after that, Ace Carreterro aka The Sleepers came on board. Ace and I were both sales associates who ended up working pretty much the same weekly schedule with Kyle. I had very little in common with the two of them. (more…)
