Summary
This zine was provoked by a survey in Boston that showed 72% of bicyclists are men. In issue 1, Team Smash Em Up has compiled articles and comics on bicycling laws in Cambridge, riding defensively, bicycling and anarchy, bike independence and safety, a videography of women riding bikes in music videos, sex work and an essay on the bicycle frame as a gendered object. The editors interview a woman bicycle mechanic and a female bike messenger. There is also an accident report insert, just in case. Issue 2 details home décor with used bike parts, bike laws, biking women with tumblr and other blog links, physical therapy after being hit by a taxi, bike types and bike fitting for women, and interviews with queer pedicab operators.
