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)

No, but you can get a Freight hip pouch at King Kog in Brooklyn. Otherwise check Trackstar.

take the chinatown bus... $20 round trip, you can bring your bike... ride north to Spring Garden, make a right down to N 2nd st(you are not supposed to make a left but) make a left on N 2nd... pass Green st and it's(R.E.Load) a few stores into the block. You'll see the Penn Herb Co. on the opposite corner. Hang out in Philly for a while then go back home when you've had enough. They make the bags right there and have a cool shop. Roland is a pretty cool guy. He's got a nice Bilenky track bike.

I don't know exactly what bus company it was, but one of those shady companies has been accused or indicted of smuggling drugs, hence the dirt cheap fare. If you want to make sure you're not supporting this type of operation, take Greyhound.

I do think the New Century operation is back open, however.

Still, the concerning eye must wonder why these companies charge so much less than Greyhound.

Also, McDonald's and Wal-Mart sell drugs.

Probably has a lot to do with running buses on a few short circuitous routes with guaranteed high volume of passengers and freight rather than an interconnected nationwide system of stations with buses that run regardless of how many passengers or packages need delivering.

The code violation may well be hazmat oriented rather than anything to do with the transfer of illegal drugs, i.e. the illegal transfer of drugs, not the transfer of illegal drugs, it'd be an appropriate response to an unlicensed carrier service. Certainly seems that way when coupled with a warning regarding their waste disposal.

Ah, gotcha.

Reading comprehension is key.
