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)

you've probably seen all this if you looked, there is contact info for several companies on the last link, you may want to call them, I'd bet if you're nice you could take a few minutes of a dispatchers time to see wha to expect from that perspective.

They are big, have part time work, I think its what you are looking for. They just don't pay well.

Breakaway pays okay, but you sacrifice a lot for the freedom to work or not work whenever you want. I.e. they overhire so sometimes there is not enough work. I find the commissions to be pretty good, never worked for anyone else though.

Yes, it is commission work.
