    Hi from London

    I'm a cycle courier here in England and have been for the last seven years. I've slowly but surely worked my way from gears, through single-speed to fixed-wheel. I currently ride a Terry Dolan track bike as my work hack, but last week ordered myself a lugged steel beauty from Bob Jackson cycles. Now I'm sitting here twiddling my thumbs waiting for it to be built. Great forum, there's just about every subject covered here.

    If you're a courier in London, you earn your pay.

    For those who haven't been there, the roads downtown actually have printed on the curb "Look Left" or "Look Right" because there are so many dumb Americans who need the reminder (I know I do). It's funny, but really necessary.

    Ah! London, my favorite city!

    I can't wait to go back there. If only it was not so expensive!
