Old school bicycle messenger
3.11.07 by Buffalo Bill
You are not an old school London bicycle messenger unless you
a. called yourself a ‘cycle courier’ or a ‘despatch rider’.
b. can remember when the bicycle of choice was a Muddy Fox Courier. Like this one. OK, not like this one, cos it’s a mixte frame. Like this one, only with a top-tube in the right place.
c. used clips and straps. Not because you thought they were cooler, but because clipless hadn’t been invented.
d. remember what colour Ricardo’s hair was before it all went silver.
e. used to wonder exactly what it was that the chef did to the food at the Court Caff to make it taste so bad.
