Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

looks like they'll be playing it at the bike film festival: http://www.bicyclefilmfestival.com

MESSENGER
USA 2005 | DV, 18 minutes.
DIRECTOR: Daniel Leeb
A day in the life of New York City messenger, Alfred Bobe, Jr., “"the fastest man in the city".” Daniel Leeb's cinematography dances with Bobe's bicycle through the moving city. This film is sure to make anyone who ever considered moving to New York to become a bike messenger, book himself or herself on the next flight to JFK. Not only a stunning portrait of the courier workday, Messenger is a tribute to New York's energy and its do-or-die attitude. Bobe may risk his life for the next delivery, but his philosophical outlook and skillful riding will remind you why messengers setthe pace of urban street culture.

it's good. not life-altering, but a good short. he says one good thing, about there not being nor needing to be any rivalry between messengers and usps guys, says something like we do the same job, just that they do it without riding a bicycle [pause] "but why would you do a job where you don't get to ride a bicycle?" nice line, some good riding shots taken from another bike, some nice observation of this way that he kinda caresses other vehjicles when riding through traffic - like strokes them a little bit (make of it what you will), some nice little skids that he does. starts and ends with the billburg bridge. funny thing as you're watching the last shot of the ride home brooklyn-bound and the shot is from the pov of a rider going up the climb from delancey, every time you see one of the yellow dividers disappear under the bottom of the screen as the bike approaches it you brace yourself for the bump. it's involuntary!

... Okay, messenger dvd owners:

Do any of you a: have a dvd drive on your computer and b: have the time / willingness to follow a tutorial that would walk you through the process of ripping a dvd, installing bittorrent (file sharing software) and sharing it to the interweeb?

I'd be willing to write something up if someone else is willing to go through it.
