Just wondering how much messenger work is available in the Perth CBD, who the main employers are and anything else anybody may know that could help me get into a job I believe I’d both excel at and enjoy, like what kinda mileage I would expect to ride on a busy day? Will a u-lock be sufficient for securing my bike?
Also, is there anywhere in Perth that sells the Panasonic Panaracer R’Air tubes?
Lastly, do any messengers ride brakeless? I see a few people pushing brakeless setups for leisure but nearly every messenger I have seen on the terrace recently has been running a single speed free with a flat bar and front n back brakes. Does nobody honor the spirit of Kevin Bacon anymore?
Thanks HLC, good info for sure I guess I’ll just loiter around the terrace and see what the deal is. 40km is a good amount, not too much or too little. Did you messenger here? What combo / gear inches were you pushing if I may ask?
I initially planned my bike to be SS with both brakes so riding SS is fine. I would work for almost nothing if I could get my foot in the door at a decent company.
