I stumbled upon this book by accident about 7 years ago. I’d been living in LA for about two years and had just moved into the place that I live now. Tracko was in full swing and I was working at Orange 20. One morning I was walking home from breakfast before heading into work and stumbled upon a garage sale down the street from my house. After rifling through a few boxes of books with no luck, I was about to give up. Then I looked over and a women was holding this book, I was so bummed. I didn’t think anyone could let this treasure go after picking it up. I decided to wait it out anyways, after picking up a few more books and few chachkies she finally put it down. I jumped over a coffee table and ran across the garage and snagged the book.
At this time I was trying to share everything Track Bike, Messenger Culture, or Alt-Cycling that I could, but this book felt special. I wanted to scan it but I just couldn’t and today I’m super psyched I didn’t. Seeing this book on The Radavist gave me the same feeling today as it did when I first saw it at that garage sale 7 years ago. STOKED!
