Motor1.com’s 1st Automotive Festivus Airing of Grievances

Tomorrow marks the great holiday of Festivus, popularized by Seinfeld character George Costanza. The Festivus pole is up at our Miami offices, and we’re hard at work coming up with feats of strength, but before that can happen, it’s time for our favorite part of the holiday – the Airing of Grievances.

See, there are thousands and thousands of people behind the cars, trucks, and SUVs that we love, like, and merely tolerate. There are marketing people, engineers, designers, product planning gurus, and, God help us, accountants. By and large, when all these folks get together, great things happen. But sometimes, brands seem to take one step backwards for every two steps forward.

With that in mind, the entire Motor1.com staff got together to figure out all the automotive things that have grated us over the past year as part of our first annual Automotive Airing of Grievances. To paraphrase

Changed the coloring to something more eye-friendly. Fixed some minor glitches as well, like second disc brake hole and the clamp on the seat post.

Largo bicycle shop sees businesses booming amid pandemic

LARGO, Fla. (WFLA) – Dan Block has been getting quite the workout lately. Block owns the D & S Bicycle shop on Walsingham Road in Largo and the coronavirus has him working overtime.

“It’s been crazy. Everybody that got their bikes that they’ve had them,” said Block, who fixes those bikes regularly. “Or they buy them at Walmart and they want them assembled, and hey, I’ll do that.”

Dan Block has owned a bike shop in Pinellas County for 42-years and remembers the last time there was a boom in business like this one.

Block explains with the gyms and beaches closed, there are few places to go work out and now many choose to take a bike ride.

Block specializes in bike rentals and sells a few used bikes on the side, but lately, he can’t keep any used inventory in stock.

“I’m limited choices right now,” said Block.

Public transportation users at risk as coronavirus spreads across US

CLOSE

Some are hesitant to use public transportation during the coronavirus outbreak. Here’s what transportation officials are doing to help reduce risk.

USA TODAY

DENVER – Sisters Trinity and Kiki Williams looked around the crowded bus stop as the #15 bus rumbled down Colfax Avenue toward them. 

The bus looked to be about half full, the driver wearing a bandanna stretched across his nose and mouth to comply with government recommendations intended to help slow the spread of coronavirus. But among the awaiting passengers, only one wore a face covering.

“I’m damn nervous,” said Kiki Williams, 19. “There’s too many of us.”

For protection, the women, who are African American, wore blue rubber gloves but no masks. “We forgot them at home,” said Trinity Williams, 18.

Like millions of Americans, the Williams sisters depend on public transit at a time when health officials have told Americans to stay 6 feet
