Alfred for the Winged Store

Alfred was one of the first bike messengers I saw in action in NYC that made me realize some people were born to ride a track bike. He’s fast and flows two steps ahead of traffic in any situation. Put him in the mix to race Monster Track and he’ll surprise you.

Check out Alfred’s cap at the Winged Store!

CornFed’s fourth edit got a little remake over the weekend. I’m digging the super mellow vibes here. Also, be sure to check out the full video range from CornFed to get a sense of these guy’s work.

Hell yes! It’s been too long since the last Cornfed video and this one’s got a bit of Bongripper in it! Best fucking band ever.

Milk Money: Clementine Courier Photos

Photos by Wilis Johnson

I just love photos of New York City, especially when it’s of this group of gentlemen, shot by my friend Wilis at Milk Money. These two smiling faces (smile Cooper!) work at Clementine Courier, a courier-owned and operated messenger service. See more photos at Milk Money and if you work at an office in NYC, holler at your boss about working with Clementine!

Zak Kovalcik from Bike Messenger to Six Day Racer

I’m so pumped on this!

“Zak’s racing career began as a courier in Pittsburgh, competing in local courier races, twice winning the North American Cycle Courier “Track King” title. He segued into racing on the velodrome and worked his way through the ranks quickly.

2011 saw Zak winning the Alpenrose Velodrome Challenge points race, the biggest race of the year at his home track, defeating arch rival Jame Carney. At the Fixed Gear Classic in Blaine, MN, Zak and long time madison partner Dan Harm won the madison, competing against long time Six Day pro Franco Marvulli.

Zak still works occasionally as a courier, but his main focus is on moving up to the next level in his racing career. His dream until a year ago? Racing pro six days in Europe. Then in 2013 the all-but-forgotten art of steher racing had a little yankee flavour added during the 102nd Berlin Six Day when reining US omnium champion Zak Kovalcik competed in the high-speed niche event.

And we’ve been lucky enough to follow him during this amazing week in Berlin. ”
