Such a snob. Ask away.

Thanks to Chronicle books for sending this piece of snobbery over my way.
After reading on and off the snob for awhile, I realized that many of his jokes I didn't quite get because I don't ride a fixie, and I have also never raced or have been into fast bikes.
However, I still enjoyed the dedication and his style of writing. I was never really into his anonymosity but perhaps he knew the whole time he would at the end wound up with a book offering. At anyrate, this book, has now arrived in the melilands and it is ready to be read by me. That said, here we go.

While looking at the book, I pulled the Kill Rock Stars album. They are graphically long lost cousins, that cover art resembles a tad to Olympia Brewing Company [link]. Thought I'd share.
Visually and physically, the book is quite pleasant. I have not finished it yet, but I was happy to find a great interview by Tom over at bikejuju with the artist behind the book, Chris Koelle. Read all about it and check out his work space here: Artist Profile: Chris Koelle -from bikejuju

It also came with a little 'deluxe' patching kit. That's kinda nice.
