There are FAMS all over this city!!!

So I guess this makes me a FAM; what with my sweet track ride and large easy to handle bag.

Oops, apparently sometimes these C.I.C.L.E. links work and sometimes they don't. The official NPR story can be found here.

NPR is a bit late jumping on this band wagon and all considering even the New York Times and Washington Post put out similar articles months ago. I wonder what we'll be stealing from the messenger culture next? The typical idea of super tight jeans and all that doesn't really appeal to me since I don't think I'd really find it all that comfortable. I guess I'll just have to wait for the next trend.

I DO like this idea though; one of the Coppis rider has a blue one on his fixie and I've been meaning to pick up a red one for mine. I've got to customize my bike a little bit at least.

What's a FAM? I got a "spam is not appreciated" message when I followed the CICLE link.

I guess I'm not a FAM. I've got a geared bike with a nerdy rack to hold my commuter panniers.
