 Somehow this is a lot more useful than the article about how people strapped tubes to their frame

 @Neale1978: what does 'innit' mean? Is it kinda like 'isn't it?'
  • + 11
 @lehott: Yes sir, that is correct.
  • + 2
 @Powderface: Kona already means something...in Portuguese. That might make you smile a little
  • + 2
 @wakiisapuddinghead:
i googled it....
KONA in Polish: “Dying in Pain”
KONA in Portuguese: "Vagina"
KONA in Norwegian: "The Wife"
  • + 5
 @waxed: Just so happens I am dying in pain because The Wife no longer gives me vagina. Far beyond coincidence.

 Nasal Saxophone wins. I would not be surprised if some Salsa owner actually carries a saxophone on a bike packing trip into the middle of Yukon. It just makes sense.

 Taj is the GOAT!!!

 For the young/uneducated.Do yourself a favour and google Taj video parts.F@%£#g OG.

 My thoughts exactly! Absolute living legend! @watchmen:

 His gap through the rafters at Ray's still boggles my mind every time I ride there!

 @nyhc00: Dood! That part is strong!

 @Tajlucas I still have a bunch of hand drawn Sharpie T-shirt’s from the early T-1 days when you could send in money and get a random original art shirt. Have a couple from you, couple from Rich, and a couple from Sieben. That was the coolest shit ever as a teen to get from riders I admired. Thanks for all the beautiful riding over the years.
  • + 5
 Hold on to those..
Closest i have is a signed fairdale patch from taj himself i got at interbike one year.
"thanks for everything, man" was all i could utter.

 We need a petition to rename Norco to Raccoon or Corgi
  • + 2
 Two of my most favorite things in this world. Damn, now I have no choice but to buy a Norco. I have always liked their bikes for some reason.
  • + 11
 I thought it said Raccon Orc Orgi.

 @Rabbuit: I read the same thing

 American humour?
  • + 12
 Agree. I can hear tumbleweeds rolling on through...
  • + 5
 Check out his Instagram, it is pretty funny
  • + 6
 lol Always the response of those who don't quite understand it

 possibly?!? i'm amerikan and laughed at I think all of them...!

 @pbuser2299:
Yea you’re right, some much better cartoons on insta.

 @pancakeflatted: you must have quite the elementary sense of humor

 @timbud: theres isnt much to understand. Its just barely funny. More funny dumb than funny haha

 @pancakeflatted: your hardy is my softy. Keep going, jeb?

 It might also be old dude humor. I love it, but i'm a dad and make jokes like this all the time.

 In Portugal, Kona needs no marker. Cona is slang for female genitalia, or for someone who is a jerk. Exactly like dick is in English, which is interesting. Being a dick (caralho) in Portuguese has a positive connotation. To call someone a pussy the diminutive of cona is used (coninhas).
  • + 6
 In Indonesia, add a "k" behind Kona and you get a "boner".
  • + 5
 so...do people ride them there or is it pretty much a no go? Like the Chevy "Nova" in Mexico?
  • + 3
 That's why I hadn't seen any Vitus bike in Estonia, vitt is female genitalia around here an vittus is anything that is fu***ed up.
  • + 2
 @pancakeflatted:They have always been around, not sure how much of a deterrent it was. Now it's not particularly the case, but there were times when I wished I had one (lol).
  • + 2
 As a french I would transform Kona to Konasse, which means a slut - normally spelled Connasse btw Smile
  • + 2
 @romkaind: That's an anti-theft feature for free!
  • + 1
 Kona means «wife» in Norway.

 I was laughing so hard. Lunch magazine...on a core brand like chromag was my favorite!

 Taj is a legend and his comics are always great.

 Santa Cruz!? Don’t think some people will appreciate him climbing down their chimney in the middle of the night though! Lol

 I got even with this lady who dissed me by removing the "IZ" from her SPECIAL ED helmet. She didn't notice for like 2 months and boy was she pissed. I guess that's not PC these days.
  • + 8
 What about "transitioning"?

 I know of "hole" being added to a Glory.
  • + 0
 I had a cube analog, added a 'demolition' BMX sticker partially covering it and later replaced it 'chocolate' skate one. Had plans for a sex wax one too, but could never a suitable size. Endless fun.
  • + 2
 Some brands are low-hanging fruit for this. Giant, Pole, even Jamis and GT would be easy to screw with.
  • + 2
 The old Glorys didn't even need the word hole after it. They were nicknamed that because of the pierced hole in the downtube... least in the circle I ran with
  • + 5
 You’s a legend Taj! This stuff is gold! I’m buying a paint pen to put in my riding pack now! Taj was bmx for me as a youngster. Seeing his stuff in ridebmx and watching his videos is what fueled me.
  • + 7
 That cannot get a date killed me
  • + 3
 Taj has influenced me since I was a child. He is one of the most creative riders to every touch a bike. Always coming up with new tricks and the next fad. Watch his part from Etnies Forward.

 None of these beat you changing @mickeyboy mondraker to manraper @sye77 and Danny hart seeing it after he’d been riding it all day at hamsterley

 I used some white gaffer tape to turn my old Bianchi into a BI ACH.. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

 They all made me giggle, except #4? That clearly is too witty for me to understand, can someone explain it to me please?I'm sure I'm going to regret posting this once it's explained ha-ha! :-)

 Eh, taj

Like 20000 yrs ago you shot me in the face with a rubber band while at Woodward (think: Kilmer, Stander-man, Drkn 4.5.).

If I bring a rubber band to SeaOtter, can I even the score? ????

 Anyone remember the circa-2007 “MORNINGWOOD” decal set that some genius made for the Izumu?

 I think what's funniest is how over the top some of these are. So many words in search of the joke.

I thought you were supposed to tape off your SCOTT logo so it says SLUT?
