Hey Patrick, your post was totally off topic and also I think mustaches are great, I wish I could grow one. I was at Mountain Bike Heaven today, too. You should email me next time youre in town! -----Original Message----- Date: Sunday, March 01, 2009 9:13:24 pm To: "The Think Tank" email@example.com From: "Patrick Leahy" firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: [TheThinkTank] totally off topic, yet awesome.
This is my first post to this doohickey. I've met veganboyjosh. My
name is Patrick. I work at Bike Saviours in Tempe.
Anyway, I have a moustache. Lately non-bike friends have accused me
of growing it to be trendy. This is annoying, I've grown up around
people with moustaches. Punks have moustaches, and bike people in
particular seem to grow them. I grow facial hair every winter. It
doesn't seem abnormal to me, and I don't see why its trendy.
Anyways, you know who has a moustache, and has had one for years? Tom
Ritchey. Tom Ritchey designed and hand built some of the first
mountain bikes with Gary Fisher. He's designed scads of components,
rides all over the world, and in hasn't shaved his stache in nigh of
20 years. He's a damn decent guy, and bike nerd to rival the best of
them. I saw his moustache and the man today in Sedona at Mountain
Bike Heaven. And it was fantastic. Anyways, you can use him as a
point of reference for cycling moustaches.
Oh yeah, he started this http://projectrwanda.org/ He's the first guy
listed on the board of directors.
Maybe that is on topic, project rwanda rules also.

I think a central component of the "magazine" section and resource
library should be zines. They are almost always local, place- specific, and grassroots. There are some seriously awesome zines
out there - about bike trailer construction, commuting, and tons
more - the best local zine here in Minneapolis is Dames on Frames,
a feminist analysis of the biking movement locally and globally.
Microcosm publishing has a great collection available for purchase
(and it's super easy to set up a wholesale account with them).
The other suggested books are great. I've been thinking for a
while that our shop should set up a resource library for folks to
either check out or use in the shop. -Jason Tanzman Sibley Bike Depot, St. Paul MN _______________________________________________ Thethinktank mailing list Thethinktank@bikecollectives.org To unsubscribe, send a blank email to TheThinkTank- email@example.com To manage your subscription, plase visit: http://lists.bikecollectives.org/listinfo.cgi/thethinktank- bikecollectives.org
