I've spent portions of the last several evenings enjoying The Bicyclist. The Bicyclist is the story of Conrad, who has moved from Wisconsin to Portland, Ore., to find life and perhaps love (or maybe just sex) in a bicycle shop. The 13+ episodes so far run from 90 seconds or so to more than six minutes. Neither Conrad nor his associates would have anything to do with cycledork, who is too old, too spandexed and way too unbeautiful to make their scene. That said, The Bicyclist is must see for anyone who enjoys depictions of young-adult drinking, male sexual competition and bike jousting.
