If you're out on a bike ride, you have only one option if you are going to take a photo of your riding friends.

Just another ride for these 5 guys.

The best job here is photographer.  He's like the director in a movie.  The poor sherpa on the leftmost, he has to lug the tripod, swingarm attachment + counterweight, and all cameras.  Plus he has to carry the casual clothing he and the photog will wear.  Who carries the steadicam?  The sherpa.  Who carries lip gloss and mascara?  The photog.

But who's taking the picture of the picture?  Some dude wearing crocs and skinny jeans, prolly.  Prolly rode his fatbike all 200 yds from the parking lot.  While wearing Specialized SWAT gear.

We're lucky Sinyard's boys picked SWAT for the name.  Now Sinyard can sue every police department in America.

Photo credit reluctantly given to Pinkbike/Shimano.  Caption credit Chester B. Redweld 2014.

You're on a roll with these critical comedies in an area where you have no basis for the criticism. Nice work!

When it comes time for humorous observations on a sport and its participants, there's no better resource than a lawyer who hasn't been athletic since his one and only coed intramural softball game in freshman year.

Why was it his one and only? Because he has no talent! They made him avoid intramurals after that.

Jealousy is funny, isn't it?

Maybe that's why GRH, LLC sued me, Chet. Jealousy.

Though it's true I never left the training wheels at home, I still find great comic resources in reading the projected-self-world displays of mountain bike "culture" that have arisen in my years on Earth. Americans have an overriding need to make everything simultaneously easier and more expensive, while pretending they're doing something difficult with little to no resources.

Also, it's hard to pass up chances to mock the metrosexuals whose social status was saved by Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, and who took that show's various comments straight to heart, and began talking like girls and dressing like girls in order to please the world's Queer Eyes.

Thank you for admitting the truth and accuracy of my client's organizational name and operational purpose.

You just can't stop ruining your client's case, can you Redweld?
