    Spokecards...

    Friday wasn't too busy. I was bored then, and I'm bored now...

    I'll trade you my Honus Wagner for the card on the left.
    That's sick!
    "We are few now, but one day we will rule." That's what one of my fixies whispered as I walked by. I nodded in agreement, and thanked it for not waking the others.

    You must have scowered the phone booths of Soho for those. You cheap bastard. You should be stealing them from messengers like every other posenger out there.

    So I should steal them from myself?!? ha haha
    Sorry bro, I'm not a 'posenger' . Just a messenger who actually has an internet connection (and broadband at that!), along with a serious fixedgear/internet addiction.
    Friday was soo boring, I even volunteered for a £2.50 job from The City to pick up in Camden to drop off in Mayfair!(think a total of 45min. riding around London for about $4) The prostitute cards are just an example of my boredom (along with this post on a dull saturday night).

    Sorry dude, inside joke. THought it was more commonly known around here.

    Those cards look just like the T and A advertisements of the phone booths.

    It's alright, sorry, I made that last post just after waking up :S

    And, yes, they are T and A ads in phone boxes


    Salmonchild... yea, 'proper' spokecards are usually from alleycat type races...

    Yea, I do remember a white fixie on Gt Marlborough St.... last week, was it? Alleycats are the least structured race imaginable!

    yeah twas last week, monday as i left my phone at work over the weekend and had to go in on the first day of my holiday.

    the steed is a singlespeed, not sure enough of my abilities to try fixed at the moment, plus lack of money meant that when i was building it i could only afford a 'normal' hub.

    cheers for the info, and nice ride.

    an alleycat contains a variety of point-gathering events: cargo race, checkpoints, fixie battles, TTs, etc...depends on the organizers
    Deathlap - cyclocross, training, beer,...escape hatch

    HAHAHAH!!
    It's 'irony' as I am American... Atlanta, Ga.
    Moved here 2yrs ago.
    A running joke with some guys I drink with.. "What are ya drinkin? Stella LIGHT?!?!" har har
    But, sadly, Miller (along with Bud) can be found fairly easily around London.
    But only women drink it!
    Personally, I prefer Budvar, Grolsh, Kronenburgh or Foster's. But definitely miss my Sweetwater (ATL swill)
