When I woke up this morning I heard a disturbing sound.
I said, When I Woke Up This Morning I Heard A Disturbing Sound.
What I heard was the jingle jangle of a thousand lost souls.
And I'm talking bout the souls of modern men and women,
Already departed from this world.
Seeking Divine light, they will not find.
Because it's too late.
Tooo Late, Yeah!
Too late for them to ever see again,
The light they once chose not to follow.
Alright, Alright.
Don't be lost when the time comes.
For the day of the bicycle cometh, like a thief in the night.
Well, Well, Well...

If you read bikeblogs at all, there are only three you Really need. I know there are a lot of really good bikeblogs out there. I could list 10 that I am religious about. That I BELIEVE! Amen. That I BELIEVE you should be/already are reading.

But there are only three, that MUST be read.

I only bring this up because today there was a MashUp of two of them and it's good stuff.

BKW (edit: BKW has let us down, forget him) interviewed Bike Snob NYC.

I know, that of the 12 of you loyal readers, the 3 of you that read bikeblogs definitely read these. But maybe I can convert one or two of you who are new to the religion. Maybe you have questions but are afraid to ask. Maybe you have a beautiful vintage Romani track frame, fully chromed underneath, that you want to get all color matchy with Deep V's and Ourys, and no matter how many times I tell you it's the wrong frame for that style, and that you should dress it in era Campy and ride the shit out of it, but you won't listen, you gotta be cool with your Sacramento friends and shit, maybe if you read these Apostles of Modern Cyclery, maybe you will see the light. Can you see the light? CAN YOU SEE THE LIGHT?
"What the fuck is James talkin bout?"
"I don't know, we gettin paid, keep singin."
So yeah, BKW, BSNYC and Drunk Cyclist. That's all you really need. Great stuff. Regularly updated with entertaining and informative content. Not like the egocentric, ego maniacal, self-interested, self-seeking, self-absorbed, narcissistic, vain, conceited, self-important, boastful dribble you find here.

As for the other 7 bikeblogs you should be reading instead of this.

-All Hail the Black Market
-Prolly Is Not Probably.
-Yehuda Moon (start from the "First", new strip every day)
-Hipster Nascar
-The Light of the World
-Church of The Sweet Ride
oh, and
-1410 Oakwood
-the Island of Misfit Bicycles

and, of course
-The Warlocks
There are others, there are always others, Mr. Burton.
Who are you reading?
