Search as you may, San Francisco Bicycle Messenger Association bandannas silk-screened with chain rings instead of paisleys aren't to be found at Bloomingdale's, Nordstrom, or Macy's. That sort of up-to-the-moment fashion statement requires a trip deep into the Inner Mission to a little clothing outlet that shares a storefront with a skateboard shop. Pushbike, opened last year by husband-and-wife ex–bicycle messengers Sarah Torgrimson and Ian Davis, specializes in urban cycling apparel not found in larger retail outlets, including local names such as Chuey Brand, B. Spoke Tailor, and Cadence.
