Bike Purchased Online 90% Assembled?? Not Quite.

I came across this post from Durham Cycles about bicycle assembly and the challenges bicycle shops face when explaining to customers who’ve purchased bikes online why it costs the equivalent of 1-2 labor hours to assemble their bikes for them. Most bikes purchased online incorrectly claim that the bikes are 90% assembled. This is false advertising and […]

Italian Dreams–Benotto & Atala

These two beauties make a cameo appearance in the previous post, but they’re both worthy of special mention.  We all have some appreciation for the beauty and flow of the Romance languages, and bicycle makers in those nations have indeed capitalized on the American desire for something a little bit more–how shall we put this–well, […]

Custom "Raspberry Beret" 53cm Town-Style

Prince’s music remains difficult to find for free on the internet, and it’s a hard thing to complain about when you consider his musical talent and incredible writing.  So when I was trying to find a good video to link here, I was thwarted.  That’s okay though, because we all know the song and the […]

Custom "Turbo Banana" Touring Rig, 56cm

Though there are indeed hundreds of types of bananas that we humans eat, they are all crosses of only two wild banana species.  This makes bananas quite susceptible to disease, which led big fruit companies (primarily Dole) to buy up vast acreage in the tropics as a hedge against future outbreaks.  Those interested in reading […]

Riding South on a SOMA

One of the great pleasures of living in San Francisco is the ability to escape it quickly.  This is not to say that city life is bad or anything negative like that, but to acknowledge that many of us require regular visits to nature to maintain our well-being. The other day I had a prime […]

Custom Veridian Blue Mixte 49cm @ Pedal Revolution Refurbished Bicycle Update

Once again we have a classic in stock.   This lugged steel frameset got a beautiful new powder coat a while back, and last week we built it up as a nice city cruiser.  We’d been calling the paint “veridian” due to the greenish tinge, but truth be told it’s probably closer to a more […]
