Ok, I am new to this single speed and fixed gear scene. Anyways, Im seriously thinking of becoming a messenger. I mean, like totally takeing biking to a whole new level. Anyway, I am 16 so im def to young to actually get a job, and plus i live in the burbs of NYC. But, Im thinking if all else fails(college and the lack of interest in wearing a suit everyday), I'll put my life on the line everyday and become a messenger. I would have to buy a fixed bike because i would feel like a tool with my 18sp cdale. Anyways, I wanted some input on this whole messenging buisness. Is it really worth putting you life on the line, smelling terrible all day, and getting little respect from cars and pedestrians with not so great pay?
Il bet this thread has been posted, I would love some input though.
