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)

A couple years ago (five now?) Chrome was selling them bags off like they had a disease, because Kozmo went outta bidness real fast.

In my closet.

Just set up a search on eBay to email you when one goes up for auction. Y'know, technology and ****.

Is this some kind of halloween costume thing or is it for the tarp material exterior?

Speaking of dot.com busts...



Great marketing can kill a bad company faster than anything else because with more customers they got to shoot themselves in the foot more than normal.

ay yi yi.

i worked as a courier, as we called it then and there (not messenger or "messer") in 94 in london. ugly-ass purple no-name mountain bike, and no chrome, reload or pac. army canvas bag with a garbage bag liner.

i used to watch track cycling on tv, cause it's always been a bigger deal in the uk

i didn't connect the two

w/e

I think I know a guy in atlanta that had one for sale...I'll try to find out if he's still got it.

It was the non logo'd one....

Would make a nice jacko-lattern come to think of it.

And btw, the exterior tarp material will make your back sweat like a *****. I have never had back mank like that before.

At least Cordura and waxed canvas take to Febreze.

Many used things were given to the messengers as a way of saying, "sorry, you are out of work as of today". Corporate employees were allowed to take their desktop or laptop with them for free. Other things that were new were sold off at huge discounts. I came very close to buying that Chrome Kozmo bag at a nice discount, but decided against it at the last minute. I worked there from July 99 to April 01 (felt like I was there longer), though with the writing on the wall it is debatable how much "work" was done the last 2 months or so.
