What is The Weight Weenus?

Well, it’s an idea that I’ve had floating around in my head for a couple of years, and COVID-19 helped birth it into existence. It starts with a shitty pun, phonetically paralleling weight weenies (which has been a website for many years) in cycling with that which many of us do: select light weight or high performance parts to accessorise our steel bikes for medium performance leisure riding.

The weenus is defined by Merriam-Webster as “a slang word for the excess or loose skin at the joint of one’s elbow, which is technically referred to as olecranal skin”.

I am a professional in the cycling industry and community, with a background in design and photography, peppered with unprofessional writing and amateur home cooking.
