    for food delivery, my understanding is this (i have never done food delivery, just spoken about it with food deliverers)

    mama's is the only, or one of the only, manhattan place that hires "messengers"

    mostly food delivery messengers work in williamsburg

    Somewhere between I got a dual slalom and mod trials bike.
    I think I'm through with derailleurs.
    I guess uni's are my next step.

    I used to laugh at those guys(as did a lot of messengers when they started using messengers) until I saw the kind of money they made, and ate a bunch of the free food they got...

    There are quite a few other places in manhattan with hip white people on fixed gears delivering food, but mamas was pretty much the first.

    See, that ***** is alright! I don't think I got even one vegan pancake in all the years I spent doing messenger work. And I'm far from vegan, but still...

    if you want to be a food deliverer in nyc i think you need an early 90's univega mountain bike with a basket and plastic pedals and wear a red windbreaker. seems standard. man what ever happen to kozmo?
    "besides me, everyone else in sarasota florida with a "fixed gear bike" can get f*cked.. this includes but is not limited to, ringling art nerds, new college hippies, nathan fabian, and the dude that lives down street.
