    Anyone make money on their ss/fg?

    Hi, just wondering if there are any other messenger/delivery guys out there. I am a delivery guy for a middle eastern joint in brooklyn. At first i hated it, but now im making good money, and getting in 30 miles a day. My former messenger coworker says he makes more money delivering. I encourage anyone who needs a little scratch to try it out

    Only way to get people interested is to ask for a parts rec i guess..

    Im looking for a decently priced rim with heavy durability (180 pounds, 30 miles a day urban riding with invisible nighttime potholes). Is there anything out there that might have decent speed too. I suppose speed isnt paramount tho..

    Gonna be kinda hard to get a response 2 hours after posting when you're doing it in the middle of a workday. Have a little patience.

    Hoagie Steak Out off San Carlos and 3rd. Did it for a few months only to help a friend out. Was on call mostly and only took on deliveries when I was available. Some extra scratch...

    edit: delivering to college chicks was also a plus.

    I was a messenger in Philly for a while. Money sucked, but it was a lot of fun sometimes.

    If i might ask, about how much were you pulling down? I hear this big company called urban express here in nyc will hire almost anyone, but atm i cant really see a reason to switch to messengering aside from cred etc.

    I was averaging 2-300 a week when I quit. I knew guys who made a lot more. Usually it was a matter of seniority and working for the right company. I was at one of the slower companies.
