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)

Madrid...messengers?

My friend is visiting from Madrid for a while, after the bike film fest he was psyched, and was saying he doesn't seem to think there are couriers in madrid.....is this true? Does anyone know any companies? I seem to recall world's being there once.

Let me find out with my cousin in Madrid, Spain ... but I would think that the messengers work with scooters.

Pizzas are delivered with scooters!
