courier mondays…

Respect the bicycle courier! Not only on mondays… This is what we call a real courier… Seen him on the streets of NYC many times, once had a chat, told me he’s out as a messenger since he came back from the Vietnam War… Now you’re talking! Found on Landlord’s! Ride safe…

  1. That’s Nick from Staten Island, a true veteran (war, NYC bike). I met him when I was on the road a couple of decades ago. He’s always ridden a small front wheel. Says it improves handling…claims it saved his life a few times.

      yep, i know this with the front wheel. he told me too and there is the other messenger veteran 25+ that also uses a 24 front wheel! maybe that#s what you do after 25 years ;-) ride safe…

    The swedish post uses a 584(26″) back wheel and a smaller 507(24″)frontwheel great handling, a bit scary when going from a 28″ touringbike with more stability. almost crashed twice in the first month when turning to agressivly.
    Although it probably depends more on the forkangle and rake.

Recently, a drawing of a bicycle thought to have originated from the studio of Leonardo da Vinci is now considered a hoax. This drawing was believed to be by Giacomo Caprotti (c. 1493), a pupil of Leonardo. Only the two circles are originally from the Codex Atlanticus, on the verso of sheet 133. Via
