Not a bad article. What chain weighs 20 pounds?
that shot is tits.
new york chain lock.
That reminds me totally of one of the shots in Hackers. They wear pretty much the same looking clothes too (look who's posing now).
I have the 1m fahgettaboudit, and it weighs about 8 pounds. Not a big deal, I was just wondering.
But is everything Puma?Originally Posted by endform
Something tells me this thread is gonna turn into the hate post of all times.
"jesus was sponsored"
Hopefully not. These guys are racing and getting paid to do it. Nothing wrong with that. If they're being used as pawns in a marketing campaign, so what, all athletes get used that way. I was picking a nit with the 20lb lock comment the one guy made. Perhaps he's sporting two NY chains and a U-lock.Originally Posted by ANIMALFIXED
I am 100% behind Team Puma, and that comes from a TU guy. Kevin and all are slick, decent people and deserve the recognition.
I really dont enjoy reading articles that make people who ride track bikes seem insane or superhuman, it just ticks me off. Whats the big deal? 'They zig and zag BARELY missing cars and pedestrians, and when deliveries really come down to the wire, they pedal so fast they actually fly, FLY I TELL YOU!' ...get over it.
armia, are you known as "the happy puma?"
heh. i work at the Times and I wondered what was up with all the team Puma bikes locked up outside the otherday.

Hah, thats a great shot. Props to them, it'd be nice if it could happen without the 'PUMA' though. Squid is great.
Nice! Yeah, it's a little fluffy, about the same way most messenger articles tend to be, but that's okay.
And yeah msngr, I think Todd should be known as the "happy puma" from now on...
But where's Felipe?
That is a badass photo. The Mars Bar has never looked better.
Is Puma putting out cycling specific clothing? Or is the stuff they're wearing just part of their retro-styles lifestyle collections?
They're making a cycling jacket in their "Urban and Mobile" line... it's transparent.
Which one is animalfixed and armia?
Armia's in blue - I don't think Animalfixed is on Team Puma, are you?
"We want people to think more of us than just that guy who ran over their foot," he said. "We also want to improve work conditions, since most messengers are underpaid and get no medical insurance."
I think that's pretty cool.
I wonder if Puma will market their track line along w/ their $300 yoga gear.
The happy one.Originally Posted by BostonFixed
One of my co-workers printed out the article and handed it to me since he knows I'm all about the bikes.

That really is a nice photo. Too bad NYT couldn't have just scooped up some of Amy's work.

What are they doing? Why do they come here? Some kind of instinct. Memory, of what they used to do. This was an important place in their lives.
I'm trying to locate the photos from a few weeks back. Think it was Team Puma, know the folks in the pic were drinking and smoking pipes. Anyone know the title or the link for me? Thanks. Merry Friday?
