TOD: Feel free to introduce yourself.
TR: Toni Rodriguez, I wish I had a nickname. I'm 21 from the Bronx (Brooklyn by the Summer).
TOD: How long have you been riding (fixed gear/in general)?
TR: 2 1/2 years.
TOD: Does your work day consist of riding your bike?
TR: I just started as a bike messenger about 2 months ago after doing food delivery for a year. Greatest job ever.
TOD: What type of bike are you riding?
TR: Cinelli Vigorelli, my main track bike (Phil Wood to Archetype, Omniums with Chris King BB). I also have a Cervelo road bike, and a shitty tall bike that's ready to fall apart(still fun as hell to ride).
TOD: What's your take on riding in NYC?
TR: 70% of the reason why I love cycling so much is because I'm doing it in the greatest city in the world. Insane traffic, an amazing cycling community(one that throws races and events on a frequent basis), assholes and pretty women everywhere.. I love riding in New York.
TOD: Can you explain your most memorable experience while riding in NYC
TR: Probably the time I ran away from cops in the Bronx and ended up getting rammed, resulting in a broken wrist. Still to this day the greatest adrenaline rush I've ever experienced. No regrets.
TOD: Aside from cycling, do you have any other hobbies?
TR: Skateboarding, hardcore gamer(I'm building a PC as we speak!), reading books.
TOD: Finish this sentence – If I never rode a bike, I would………
TR: I would probably be home eating Hot Pockets while still playing World of Warcraft.
