Who Is Bicycle Pubes? And why he thinks Singletrackworld.com/Charged is the best eMTB website

by and 5

If you’ve not yet discovered the frankly bizzare and often hilarious Instagram account BicyclePubes yet then you are missing out on a whole heap of bike industry parody and satire wrapped up and delivered by the power of memes, hairy balls, and poop. We ‘despatched’ Hannah and Anglo-American translator @Fahzure to go and investigate the man (or woman…. but definitely a man) behind this rapidly growing account to gain some insight into what childhood ‘event’ has driven him to rip a new one for so many bike brands…

Who is Bicycle Pubes? As I take off the blinder hood that is a condition of the interview and arrive at a backwoods chalet that must be somewhere within three hours flight of Portland, I hope to find the answer to this question. Greeted by his two excitable Pomeranian trail dogs, René and Hershey, I’m shown into a room where Bicycle Pubes is warming down from his morning WattBike session. Beads of sweat form on smooth calves – Mr Pubes clearly likes to stay in shape. Perhaps the rumours of trail running are true – as he unclips and loosens the BOAs on his S-Phyre shoes, I’m sure I glimpse the blackened toenails of the regular runner.

Why do you ask for registration to view some articles?

We get asked this a lot. The simple reason is that content is increasingly expensive to commission, create and publish and where once the cost of this process was mostly covered by advertising revenues, now that’s no longer the case. We increasingly rely on our paying members to keep Singletrack going and we’d love you to become one of our supporters. however, that’s not we are asking right now. You can read the rest of this feature simply by registering an account on our site.

How does being a free, registered user help you?

It’s NOT so we can sell your email details. It’s not so we can show you more ads either – in fact when you register we show you fewer ads. The reason is actually because registered users come back and look at more of our content. They start interacting with us and posting comments of their own and joining in forum discussion. That level of interaction is what eventually feeds our new subscriber numbers and so for us the journey to gaining new subscribers is to start by encouraging you to simply register an account. We hope that the benefits that will bring to you will be the first step in you joining us as a Singletrack Premier supporter.

Hannah Dobson

Hannah came to Singletrack having decided there must be more to life than meetings. Having worked in policy and project management roles at the Scottish Parliament and in local government, Hannah had organisational skills that SIngletrack needed. She also likes bikes, and likes to write.

Hannah likes all bikes, but especially unusual ones. If it’s a bit odd, or a bit niche, or made of metal, she’s probably going to get excited. If it gets her down some steep stuff, all the better. She’ll give most things a go once, she tries not to say no to anything on a bike, unless she really thinks it’s going to hurt. She’s pretty good with steri-strips.

More than bikes, Hannah likes what bikes do. She thinks that they link people and places; that cycling creates a connection between us and our environment; bikes create communities; deliver freedom; bring joy; and improve fitness. They're environmentally friendly and create friendly environments.

Hannah tries to write about all these things in the hope that others might discover the joy of bikes too.

    Absolutely no idea what I just read, but I like it. Keep up the work

    Indeed – well-written, as ever, but coming with a huge dose of “WTF, and why should I care?”

    Is that a Tunnocks Teacake in his icebox?

    @ThePinkster that is a Tunnocks Teacake in an icebox. Yes, ish.

    Where can I get a set of pink hairy chainrings? Got to next years big thing??
