Next is Black.

It was expected. No macro today, since I’m still hunting down the charger for the battery.

Name: Bicycle 808 Black

Date: 6.1.2009

Cost: ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ○ ○ ○ ○

Black bicycle deck. You should shoot for about 3$ per deck. Though, you’re basically just paying for a choice of color…or lack of…Probably cheaper by the brick. Somewhere. Easily under 3$.

Availability: ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ○ ○ ○ ○

These used to be at retail/drug stores. Perhaps Walgreens is where they popped up around here. They had to be available somewhere. Why else is that stupid E1638 under the Ace of Spades. I forget. But not anymore. Go to magic online stores and Ebay. And you know what that means. (What? What does it mean?)

Unlike the orange and green happy bicycle decks. This one has problems. Aside from ‘feeling’ like a regular bicycle deck, its also …heavier…somehow…Also already experiencing clumping after a day just sitting in the box.

Dear reader,

Please run. Away. From this deck.

Thank you.

i.e. They’re cut worse than normal bicycles. I mean. They faro decently now, but it took time. Not cool.

Back Design: ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ○ ○ ○ ○

The rider back design. In black. Black is ten colors. But, for the color challenged, they look like a really really dark blue.

Bicycle Black : Its not halloween yet. Also uneven spread.

The ‘heaviness’ of the deck makes for an easier drop. But, they also leave the cards in little packets and clumps. But at least they drop.

-Black bicycles. Why not just use red and blue. These would be pretty troublesome to find today, and then, you’re not getting anything better. Maybe I’m just biased, but these,,,,have not been the friendliest in use. Go get the green bicycles instead. Extra note: green deck came with texas hold’em rules. Orange deck came with 2 blanks. Why didn’t the green one come with two blanks ;–;. The black one comes with texas hold’em rules too : (. Boring. I’ll stick with other bicycles. thanks.

Orange.

Its Sunday. the end of may. Another short day. We’ll go with Orange Rider Backs today. which means i don’t have to write as much because they’re quite similar in awesometasticness to green bicycles. Lets go.

Name: Bicycle 808 Orange

Date: 5.31.2009

Cost: ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ○ ○ ○ ○

Well, I haven’t really stated it, but cost is the factor against quality and availability and such.

Orange bicycles. They’ll run you around 5-6 a pack wherever you find them.

Bicycle Orange : AoS , nothing new here. Good.

Readily available at many, many online stores. You should look around for the better price. I think I went with mjmmagic for these.

Like the Green Bicycles. Emits only excellence. That black seal on the back of the box must be for awesome,,,,unlike black seals found elsewhere : /. Basically, what all bicycles should look to be.

I need work on my fans. But these turn out nicely, even if you(read: I) suck. No…cards do not make you better…its just an illusion of making you better.

-Okay, so instead of yesterday’s green bicycles, these are FRICKIN’ ORANGE !

Ahem.

I think they were made for some magic company. Mjm? I should do more research. But that’s what rambling is all about. Unfortunately, the pricing is a little higher than usual. Between green and orange, I’d prefer green for simplicity and cost. Orange is…a little on the high end of cards. But cost doesn’t matter..at the moment..heheh..highly recommended nonetheless.
