I’m messy.  Whatever.  My physical and virtual desktop (and life) is a pile of random bike parts, technical standards, tools, and wind-up toys.

During one of my recent excavations (they are necessary when we end up with a landslide situation), I unearthed a folder of pictures that I assembled earlier this year with the intention of posting them in a blog.  Something shiny distracted me/track season started.  I forgot.  Shoot me.

The set up:  we have an Instagram account.  While you, loyal viewer, may think we set it up just for YOUR enjoyment, we also use it to check out how people are riding our bikes and using our stuff.

Enter:  Young Ryan Young.

Young Ryan Young hails from Columbus, a city where I spent a lot of *extremely* formative years. I learned how to drink beers under bridges next to the Olentangy and spent a lot of restless nights bombing around on my perfect 1983 Peugeot PH-10s (named “Jean Luc”) on deserted downtown streets.  I miss the hell out of that city and need to get back there sometime.

Anyway, Young Ryan Young has a Macho Man Canti… we know because he tags it. 

And one day, we saw this masterpiece come across:

We… had… to follow up.  Was it real?  Was it a prom photo?

The answer:  yes.  Young Ryan reported that his would-be date was “in Canada” so he took his Macho Man, named Samantha.

Ah yes, the classic “Canadian Girlfriend” maneuver.  This is not foreign to the staff of All-City.  Here is me and my senior prom “date,” a robot I built, programmed to do the electric slide... because my boyfriend went to a "different school."

And Saisha with her date, Loneliness.

At any rate, the All-City Collective Heart was warmed.

Anyway, it’s cross season so it seemed like a good time as any to post some warm and fuzzy Young Ryan and his Macho Man photos.

Oh, and duder apparently crashed his face last night.  Gnarly.

ouch

Cheers, Young Ryan Young.  Heal up, buddy!
