Bikefreeek replied to Mark Dawson's discussion Where have all the bicycle messengers gone?
"Not so much 'messengers' as 'couriers' these days and they deliver much more than documents now with more delivers outside the Loop. Check out the Cut Cats that are a collective here in Chicago that is thriving!"

Hey Alex, I was supposed to go by WTB today to talk about maybe building a fixie. I got caught up finishing up my holiday shopping, so I was unable to go. I think after the holidays when I have time off from work, I will definitely be able to swing by. Thanks for the offer to help. I was actually over at WTB once a couple months ago to see about my roadie's front derailer. You guys are doing good work over there.

Hey, I know I said on my post that I probably wouldn't build, but to be honest I am intrigued by the option now. All the "gentle prodding" by everyone has me? seriously considering doing it. I have never taken on a project like that, but I'm a quick learner and I think I would like to give it a shot. How big of an undertaking is it really? I wouldn't even know where to get a good used frame... I guess I could really use some guidance on this thing.

I'm not gonna lie the weather is too much for me tonight. I had trouble walking let alone riding. I will try to make it next time though. Do you know when the next winter maintenance class is at West Town?

Hi, thanks for checking on me. I appreciate the offer but I actually have some mountain bike tires but have not had the chance to put them on yet. I will be stopping in Tuesday to get some help. Seeya there.

Remember I wanted that funny picture of Carl from Momentum on a button... ?? Now I want this profile picture of you to be button-ized just for me! It would be a perfect set.
