"NYC Messengers" (1987)



Another old school NYC messenger pic, just because my 10-9 day post generated such irritation among some tough guys out there.

And hey, cool kids rode track bikes on the city streets, carried messenger bags, didn't wrap their bars and even rocked the same stupid Italian cycling caps. The funky cycling sunglasses area nice touch too.

The pic was originally published in "Westuff, no. 89, May-August 1987" Photo by Daniela Salvioni. From here.

That dude's got a derailleur.


Just sayin'.

Yeah, I can see that but the guy in the back clearly has a track bike, and judging by the fact that the guy on the left has only front brake on his unwrapped drops, I'd say he's also riding fixed.
