BSNYC Friday Fun Quiz!

Posted by on May 12, 2017
Firstly, I've been remiss in welcoming EH Works back to the right-hand margin:

Unfurling a fine handmade tool roll is such a pleasure I find myself almost hoping for a flat:

So order one for yourself if you haven't already, and if you have then order another one because who the hell has only one bike?

Also, they make lovely gifts.

Remember: anything else is just carrying your crap around in a plastic bag.

Secondly, I'm pleased to present you with a quiz.  As always, study the item, think, and click on your answer.  If you're right you're right, and if you're wrong you'll see a c-c-c-c-r-r-r-r-a-a-a-a-s-s-s-s-h-h-h-h.

Thanks very much for reading, ride safe, and Happy Mother's Day.
