Welcome to Santa Cruz County’s Bicycle Courier Blog

I thought it would be great to have a place where Bike Couriers and Bike Riders could meet and talk, share stories, trade advice, and build an online community. I look forward to reading and writing our Courier stories, news, and comments.

Preventative medicine is bike fitting!



As you can see there's a big difference between how I've been riding for 15 years and how it supposedly should be done. The bottom picture is the bad fit.
For my 40th b-day I treated myself to a professional bike-fitting with Wade at The Spokesman http://spokesmanbicycles.com/
It was a learning experience and Wade was really friendly and instructive, plus they extend a fat discount to working messengers!
The proof will be in the pudding tho' and I will update as to how the new fit feels over a long week of mashing to Watsonville and back.
Big ups to all The Spokesman crew for your help!
