I occasionally hear people complain about “those damn messengers!” But what I think a lot of people don’t realize is that there are hardly any left. If you see some kid on a fixed gear rolling around with a messenger bag on, 99% of the time that is some college kid, not a messenger. Courier fashion has survived, but the industry is almost dead.
I hope that as energy costs go up, and tragedies like the gulf oil spill continue more and more people will return to using bike couriers, but as of right now the industry has fallen on hard times.
