Blackbird comes to town

Josh and his pigeon took advantage of the 80 degree weather and flew into the city tonight. His Blackbird is a true outlaw machine and just when I thought he couldn't ride a sketchier bike than the locust he pulls up on this death trap. It looks way more rideable than the locust but the front ends all over the place, the brake pedal sometimes works (when you can find it), and the jockey shift vs. front end dance is just nuts. But of course "you just get used to it". You couldn't pay me to ride this bike in city traffic.

but it sure beats driving a cage in city traffic or riding public trans. I would gladly take the suicide run.
