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)

Moving to Denver..

well my buddies convinced me to move to denver from the east so now i'll be living on a floor/couch until i find some work which is why i started this thread.

i'm a mechanic now so if anyone knows of any jobs at shops or even shops to check out to put in a resume, that'd be cool. also any messenger work i'll take too. lemme know.

i'll be located over on downing & e.colfax.

thanks in advance

Welcome to the neighborhood.

I don't know about messenger work, but you might check out eleventooth.com, which is the local messenger site.

As for shops, you might try:
Salvagetti @ 1234 speer (really nice staff, very good shop)
Turin @ 700 broadway (kind of elitist, but a decent shop)
Cycle Analyst @ 700 S pearl st. (knowledgeable folks, lots of obscure used parts)

These are all very close and easy to get to.
