I'm a 26-year old guy living in Manhattan and loving my bicycle. I ride a silver Alan cross bike whenever the weather's nice from my tiny studio on 94th st to 263rd st in the Bronx to work. Recently, I've been trolling around messenger sites to determine if a fixed bike is something I should actually purchase rather than just dream about. I belong to Transportation Alternatives, NYC's non-profit bicycle advocacy group, and I encourage anyone living in the city to do the same. Ride safe, everyone!
