Want to shout out Dexter, profiled this past week by AM NY.
This guy has passed me at speed on madison ave. Always great to see him!!
truly inspirational. i have much respect for him.
huh, rear brake only..
yea. when I first saw a clip on him on youtube I was blown away. This guy has gone through so much but always has a positive outlook on his life and life in general. Makes the problems I deal with seem like nothing.
Kudos for the message he sends out without knowing he's doing it.
Life is like a jar of Jalepenos. What you do today could burn your %$$ tomorrow!
Such incredible balance! Unfortunately they didn't include any clips of him hauling ass, so what would you qualify as "at speed", Squid?
wow, he doesnt have much of an option other than to go fixed. he needs left side drive, and he needs the pedal to come back up on its own on the upstroke since there is no other leg to push it up. works out perfectly.
edit: I guess he doesnt NEED LSD, but he shaves the weight of a NDS crankarm this way.

Some stupid thief stole his bike.Then saw him and noticed he needed left side drive and tried to sell it back to him ! Now that's a stupid bike thief.
thanks for sharing this kevin
I named my first conversion dexter after him...
He made headlines a few years ago after fighting with a 300-pound transexual on the subway?

I was moving up madison between 30th and 34th. you have to pick up some speed by 34th because there is a hill (or what passes for one in manhattan anyhow). I was doing an easy 15mph with swift moving traffic and Dexter passed me on the left with ease. We usually wave and say Yo! but you can tell when the man is on a mission.Originally Posted by 12XU
I saw that interview going down right by my place (9th and 36th) thats where they took the picture. His leg is massive.

It reminds me of the old addage; Circumstances don't make the man, they reveal him.
Don't confuse me with the facts, my mind is already made up.
any of you ever seen Pedal?
tons of interviews with not-so-average messengers
great dvd and a great coffee table book.
I actually just got that for x-mas. The extra footage is the best.Originally Posted by scotthorrigan
