Forget it

There is just too much damn shit going on in the world of bikes to put bikeblog on hold. I will be out of town till August 23rd in Mexico for my Honeymoon.

Meanwhile...John Neese, otherwise known as "Bronx" John has passed away. Here are the details from the NYBMA website, which includes information on a memorial ride tomorrow for John.

Bronx John WILL be missed....
On the morning of Saturday August 12th, John Neese - more well known as "Bronx John" - was pronounced dead and taken off of the life support that had been keeping him alive since his accident on Wednesday night. His mother has been contacted, and was at Belleview when the announcement was made. John was a beloved, long time member of the messenger community, and will be greatly missed. There will be a memorial ride for him and Darren Lewis, who died Thursday morning, on Tuesday, August 15th. It is scheduled to start at 8pm in the plaza across from the Javits Center on 11th Avenue between 35th and 36th street (where Cranksgiving starts). The ride will pass the locations of Darren and John's accidents, and end in Williamsburg. We will then go to Rock Star bar (S. 5th & Kent) where people will have a chance to say some words about both of them.-NYBMA

Also King Kog, track bike shop in Williamsburg, posted the same information and gave this quote:

John was the HOMIE!...The nicest guy, always laughing and having a good time...He had my back just as he did everyone else's...
