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)

London under-the-table

Hi All,

I'm considering a temporary move to London come September, and I was wondering...

Anyone know if courier agencies would be willing to hire someone without a work permit?

.. and so on.

...and also list here on the internet the names, addresses, and telephone numbers of people and companies that will do other illegal things.

It's required by law that all messengers wear top hat and tails while riding in London city centre.
You will not have time to earn enough pounds in a fortnight to pay for the uniform.
You'll also have to move your front brake handle to the right side of the bars.

Hahahahaha. Oh man do I miss that city like what. SOAS was the best.

As for couriering... I'd try my luck with another industry if you don have a work permit or a permanent address. If you can feign that then you might be alright. Try cityswift, arrow, mercury, or excel. No guarantees on any of them but it's worth a shot. You gonna be in full time?
