John Denver, Death Metal, and a Jam-Pac Premium Handlebar Bag

Keith is a Flagstaff resident, an all-time, all-weather, all-conference/all-state bicycle commuter. If you want to get him a present he would love a Park Tool TM-1 spoke tension meter.

Life After Messenger vs. ‘Career Courier’

I’ve had a DVD copy of Career Courier for months and months. I’ve been waiting for the opportunity to watch this documentary about the lives of bike messengers with someone who had lived that life.
