    Fixed utility trikes of course! http://www.workcycles.com/workbike/b...port-bike.html
    Imagine playing in traffic with one of those.

    A fixed gear utility trike would work...the gearing would be ridiculously low and the trike also benefits from the ability to reverse without dismounting.

    My friend owns a courier company here and is awaiting delivery of his first trike and I'm thinking that if I am going to work for him a little I might enjoy riding that around the city.

    I ride two kinds of cargo bike.

    An Xtracycle for medium work and a Worksman trike for bigger jobs.

    wait, no brakes on that thing? wouldn't that be pretty dangerous, esp. if you're carrying a load?

    Wouldn't the shirt make more sense if it had a [fill in the blank with hippest bag] messenger bag printed on it?

    Yeah, it is a bike lock. That was in the Macy's in Walnut Creek a few days ago. I thought some of y'all might like it. I think it's made by RocaWear or some **** like that.

    EDIT: I think it's supposed to be gangsta.

    As long as you don't try to keep it at my apartment (though I am not sure you have space in your garage, either).
    I hate to advocate drugs, alcohol, violence, or insanity to anyone, but they've always worked for me.

    The utility trike was perfected by the Chi-Coms--
    one burly cyclist on the front and a gunner in back
    with a stamped metal SKS to *** down running dog
    capitalists and quote the red book about paper tigers



    Personally, I would dig having one of these, hold the dogma.

    fyi, I saw a picture of a shirt with a fake messenger bag printed on it.
    I am looking for a 52cm-ish lugged mixte or ladies frame. Pm if you got one.
