A Tight Spot


This guy had the best glasses - you can kinda see them as he's turned his head. I love that he's an older "suit" but he's running singlespeed with yellow deep-Vs and a yellow messenger bag. Seems like such a contradiction. I wonder what music this man enjoys?

Too bad about the trucks in the bike lane.

Hey he doesn't look that old. Of course definition of old has undergone several transformations. What is he listening to? Books on tape- non-fiction.

Is that a singlespeed or even a fixie? He also has one of those metal trouser clips like I have, gloves and the signature Kryptonite Evolution Mini in the backpocket!

By the lack of fender (appropriate on a fixie or a singlespeed), I'd guess he's the kind of person that would have different bikes for different situations. :-)

I'm guessing he's listening to Elvis Costello.

He's a Harvard literature professor if I remember correctly, and I sold him that bike and built the wheels at Cambridge Bicycle.
