Pake Rum Runner In Latvia

Thanks Rudolfs for posting your build on our wall. I have no idea how you got your bike, since we don't even have European distribution, but thanks for seeking us out.

I was going to go "Say hello to Dr. Doom" but I think that's another country. But even without a super-villain ruler making things interesting, Riga, Latvia looks like a beautiful place to explore by bike.

Not usually be a fan of having a bike and going nowhere, but this video is a must-see. Soundtrack is perfect.

"Triple Rush" Premiers Tonight

Triple Rush - Extended Trailer from Triple Rush on Vimeo.

The reality show following several NYC bike couriers premieres on the Travel Channel tonight. This writer doesn't have that channel, so I probably won't be watching it, but I thought I'd send out a reminder for those who have been looking forward to it. Used to be when ever the media tried to make some money off of fixed gear, there'd be hate being thrown out. But I guess that is type of attitude is getting kind of old, since fixed gear and other messenger culture has long overflowed into popular culture. Hope those guys are getting paid is all I'm gonna say.
