    ben:I thought it had enormous, painted tubes. But the larger image makes it look like a frame bag?

    Definitely a Denali; same paint and Shimano chainstay decal. holy fuck. I was assuming with those wheels it was some absurd carbon frame I had never seen.

    Mind=blown

    ETA: Now I REALLY want to know what those things are on the fork and stays.

    The thing that looks kind of like a frame bag was actually a flat triangular piece of plastic with the same color and weave-look as carbon, attached (I believe via zip ties) to the inside of the main triangle. Kind of like how the MyBike advertisements used to be attached before they moved to a seatpost rack. I can imagine this makes the Denali pretty unstable in crosswinds.

    Even in person, I couldn't tell what the things on the fork were. The only idea I came up with is that they're those adhesive fins that people stick on the outside of cars that pull in air and create a whistle noise, but if that's what they are, they'd have to be facing straight forward in order to whistle.::lols at Dan's great photoshopping job:: ::slowly stops laughing:: ::googles:: ::kills self:: -tinyhonkshus

    Is it really? I figured it was flexible "carbon-look" vinyl. Did you catch how it's attached? Does it say "space" on the downtube? And are they in fact whistle fins?

    This bike is so winning.::lols at Dan's great photoshopping job:: ::slowly stops laughing:: ::googles:: ::kills self:: -tinyhonkshus

    I don't think that's a skateboard, I think it's the rack that came with the bike. It looks pro to me.

    ^^That's one of the anecdotes being used to push pedicabs to post their rates on the cab.

    ^^not allowed to by law in boston,not allowed to even quote a price. cops will seriously revoke a license..
    it's all a dodgy-arse system to ensure the whoever owns the cabs gets away with not having to pay for a bunch of things...
  14.  
    This is in NYC, I think they're trying to say you can make your price whatever you want but it must be posted. I can't find the article I was reading about it though.

    eta This has info. Anyway.DFL and DTF :D:D:D:D

    tips only.
    you can say "people have paid this much" but you can't say "it will cost you this much"
    or something like that. someone recently(like last week) got in trouble from police for it (license revoked i think).

    it's a bunch of legal stuff, like the drivers rent the cabs, and don't technically work for the company. they work for themselves. and they don't have meters. and there's laws about that kind of stuff.
    if the cab company actually employed them they'd have to pay insurance/benefits etc. i imagine; that would legitimize it a bit more maybe, but they'd make less.

    i don't work on 'em, but know plenty who do/have, so my knowledge is good but not necessarily all correct.
  15.  
    IIRC there's no real fare, it's negotiated between the driver and customer, or basically the ride is free and they work on tips only.

    I'm sure an actual pedicab driver will correct me shortly.DFL and DTF :D:D:D:D
