PAKE on the small screen

Back in February we got wind that the Travel Channel was working on a show about bike messengers in the Big Apple(that city next to the Big Skanky). We were contacted one of the producers, letting us know that one stars owned a Rum Runner frame..

Our first thought was "shitttt we're being scammed again. We're hardened here at Pake, much like the messengers chronicled in "Triple Rush": "The series is onehour doc that follows the chaotic everyday life of three unique courier companies as they battle for survival in an increasingly competitive industry. The work is grueling and the environment can be downright dehumanizing. Witness their hairraising dashes through heavily trafficked Manhattan streets, speeding between cars and racing through red lights – all to earn a few dollars and feed their fast and carefree lifestyles."

We were psyched when we found out it wasn't a scam. PAKE Rum Runner takes the small screen, next stop silver screen!

Here's the website: Triple Rush

  1. I've been looking at this picture for a while now (I'm new to biking), does this bike only have a front brake? b
