Univega 53cm Town-Style @ Pedal Revolution Refurbished Bicycle Update

Several weeks ago we had a customer come by the bike shop to donate an old Univega that dated back to her college days.  She hoped that we would make use of it, and we assured her as much.  It’s the objective of this post to show the process we go through to refurbish good-quality […]

50 cm Trek 2120 Carbon Road Bike @ Pedal Revolution Refurbished Bicycle Update

As a material, carbon fiber was first used on production bikes in the late 80’s/early 90’s.  The bike you see here, a Trek 2120, was among the first.  The three main tubes are carbon, and they’re bonded to aluminum to form the rest of the frame.  Though the frame is pretty old, it is still […]


Cannondale Synapse 51cm @ Pedal Revolution Refurbished Bicycle Update

We’ve got a nice Cannondale for sale here at Pedal Rev.  It’s got a Shimano 105 10-speed groupset, a quality lightweight wheelset, and some nice orange bar tape.  The bike really hasn’t seen much use at all, as you can may tell from the below photos. We upgraded the tires (Gatorskin 700 x 25!!) and […]

Motobecane Super Touring 58cm, Custom Town-Style

From what I can gather, 1980 seems to have been a fairly tumultuous time.  Americans were being held hostage in Iran as their home country watched helplessly on (at least for the most part).  The Soviets were invading Afghanistan, beginning the decades of political instability and human misfortune in that country; in response, Jimmy Carter boycotted […]

John Deere Rando

It’s said that “Nothing Runs Like a Deere“, and who could agree more? The common White-tailed Deer is indigenous to the majority of the Americas, roaming from Northern Canada to as far south as Bolivia and Peru.  With this information in mind you might ask yourself, what kind of bicycle can I ride from Canada […]

"Copper Vein" Custom 53 cm Road Bike @ Pedal Revolution Refurbished Bicycle Update

While we Americans continue to debate the very existence of the penny, few of us can deny the allure of a nice copper finish.  Humans first started using copper around 10,000 years ago, and it was the first metal we really got the hang of working with.  Too flexy and heavy to make a good […]
