I don't see any of that crappy vintage Herbsaint in there.

Must be in his other junk cabinet.

Yes, I'm Krinkles the Clown on an absinthe a beer bender.

You got a problem with that?

The antiques are the best to drink out of. The weight and feel hasn't been matched by the repros yet.

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>


I have one antique and I agree, it's like the 4th from left in your 2nd pic.,
the heft is perfect.

He's definitely right about the heft and feel of the antique glasses. They just feel better in your hand. But the Torsade ( swirl style ) glasses come pretty close, and when aimed properly, are heavy enough to stop a moving car.
There's nothing like the special surprise you get when you drunkenly drop a swirl glass onto a tile floor, and it bounces down the tile stairs into the living room without so much as a chip or crack.

Sorry guys,
That's not a gear that Hiram is showing off, it's a sprocket. Sprockets have a chain running on them. Gears run against each other.

Hiram,

Cog
Popular term for a rear sprocket. Sometimes incorrectly used as a synonym for cluster, which is actually a group of cogs.
Originally, "cog" referred to just a single tooth on a "cog wheel." Then "cog wheel" was shortened by popular usage to "cog."

But defintiely not a gear.

Surely, with all the grammer police on the board, you can tolerate one member of the engineering police.

Well shit, since we're going down this road

In bike-shop speak, no one uses the term sprocket. However, it is termed that way for both front and rear on motorcycles.

The term that would be used as it relates to bicycles would be a cog, part of a cassette or freewheel. Up front, chainrings are part of the crankset.

"sprocket-braking",
the suicidal practice of using your motorcycle's transmission to slow you down, instead of the brakes.
