Thanks for the plug, Vin! It's good to hear about your new
retail outlet, too. We at BR&K do a lot of lurking on the
VVVintage lists; it's a good way of finding what interests people.
The Ultimate Bike piece in the current issue is there because
we spotted a flurry of discussion about it in one of the lists.
Anytime we see a particularly well-composed post on the lists,
we tend to invite the poster to be a BR&K contributor.

Here's something I'm curious about: NYC bike messengers tend to
wrap their bike frames in duct tape, especially the black cloth type
of tape. Can anybody tell us why they do that? Real information would
be good; but crazy theories would be fun to hear about, also.

RE: krunk ass lowriders - I don't know what that means, but
do know VVVintage is going to be carrying lowriders again and they
they'll be under $200.

As for the messenger bikes, my top two guesses would be:

1) to disguise the actual brand of the bike so as to discourage theft

2) Uhh, Maybe I should have said I have only one guess
