n.— «“They’re dangerous,” says Larry Morris of nonmessenger—or “fakengers,” as he calls them—track bikes. Morris, 38, rides a largely self-built 9-speed Bridgestone mountain bike on the job for Western Messenger. His routes take him up and down the city’s brutal hills, making a fixed-gear bike impractical.» —“Critical Class” by Damon Poeter San Francisco Chronicle (California) Dec. 31, 2006.
