Crazy video Dylan.  I'm betting that everyone viewing will have a different take.

For me, I just kept thinking that there must be a better, easier, safer way to carry pizza - maybe a simple drop-in mount on the front or back of the bike so the bike looks normal most of the time but can handle a couple of pies and free up both hands.  Interesting choice of handlebars.

Near the end, he emphatically says "I enjoy this" which brings to mind that Shakespeare quote: "He is well paid that is well satisfied".

Good looking pizza.

I'm glad there are guys like Bill out there.

That already sounds like a workable improvement.    For some reason Bill doesn't strike me as being too concerned with ease or safety per se.

Thanks for sharing. That was something I'd probably not find on my own - but really enjoyed.  I expect there will be a movement on YouTube, Fundly, or another site to raise some 'dough" to improve his rig.  And perhaps a helmet.  Though, like Dylan,  I similarly think after 20+ years of being a bike messenger he may find them unnecessarily trendy.

"I like my pizza hot when I pay $20 for a cheese pie." That guy is pretty great.

Anyone have any reviews on the place?

I can't tell what the video is on my phone, but I assume it's the guy from Best Pizza.  Has anyone seen the Munchies episode for Best?

We went to Best with one of the PM groups a few years ago. I thought it was pretty good.

Yeah, he is — or perhaps WAS — one of the delivery guys for Best Pizza in Brooklyn. I heard through some friends that he's no longer there.

He has an Instagram: http://instagram.com/billdelivers

Last Best Pizza–related thing (and last photo from him) seems to be from a month ago. Sad if he has indeed moved on. He was good at that job.
ˇHasta la pizza!
