This Weeks Shots from the Shop

Well since my workshop is currently 40 miles away, I can't readily fabricate things and post on the blog.
So I will attempt to document the interesting things that come through Philadelphia's number one commuter's bike shop.

This first one is pretty awesome.  I worked in suburban shops for a few years, and frankly it was boring.  Rarely do you get to see crazy failures like this.

Here are a couple pictures from a minty cannondale touring bike from the very early 1980's.  SR Apex triple cranks, with an uncommon 86mm BCD, but still common enough to be marked on the Park CDG-1!!

One of the limited edition O/A welded rack n rolls.
Take note of the nifty bell mounting on the frame.

Moving back into the little big city of Philadelphia after having left her a few years ago. Mixed feelings about it, definitely the most difficult decision of our lives.
