"without a trace" about bike messengers, on now...

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)

Haha. The dude riding through traffic "aggressively" on his grandma's hybrid at the beginning was particularly convincing.

That part was hilarious. I also liked the scene where his dispatcher(?) gives him a package and since he doesn't have a bike he just takes off running down the street.

And there was only "messenger" stuff in the first few minutes, my apologies to anyone that watched the rest of that stupid show.
