Hi, I’m Manu, a biking web developer. I’ve been writing on here since June 2002 about a bunch of different topics. My favorite posts are tagged with ✪.

Why “plothole.net”? As defined on wikipedia,

a plot hole, plothole or plot error is a gap or inconsistency in a storyline that goes against the flow of logic established by the story’s plot. Such inconsistencies include such things as illogical or impossible events, and statements or events that contradict earlier events in the storyline.

This definition suits my life pretty well.

Thanks for reading!

back on S&M

No brakes yet, because the frame has a defect. The brake mounts are welded on the seatstay with a small displacement. S&M will send a replacement to the swiss distributor so I can exchange it in a couple of days. We’ll see how that turns out.

I’ve been sick the whole week, but I could take it to a ride last saturday… and it’s awesome :)

I’ll put together a second BMX with my Standard 250L frame and all the other spare parts. I could sell it if someone is interested in a complete bike (but who reads this anyway, right?)
