I AM COLOMBIAN AND I VE LIVED IN NEW YORK. I must say maybe there are messengers in the major cities of Colombia, but shit, I ve never seen a Cinelli bike like that in Colombia 😉
This is a great video. I wanted to do one as well, but had no idea about the presence of messengers on fixed bikes.
Filmed and edited by Ben (O.B. 1), an ex bike messenger from Chicago. Cyclist is Oscar, an ex messenger from the east coast but originally from Colombia.
We took fixed to Bogota Colombia, this is a city that has never seen anything agressive on a bike. A city 2600 meters high filled with pedestrians, cabs, buses, and bad drivers that don’t even know cyclists exist.
Enjoy the video friends. I hope you can all see some fun cycling and a little bit of South America.
Filmed October 2008
