The crew has been busy this week at Pedal. Here are a few more recent used bike builds that are for sale right now…
Silver coaster complete with basket ($350 56cm). In my humble opinion, adding a basket to a bicycle is just about the greatest thing you can do. Just try it if you doubt me. I promise you will want to ride your bike twice as much and smile big while doing it. People will smile at you too…and wave. Instant charm points. (Update: Sold)
Here is a lugged steel Univega in it’s new life as a coaster brake cruiser. Sweet backsweep bars and gold chain. (53cm $450). (Update: Sold)
Orange! Trek 1000SL road bike. Great condition. Some new parts, some original. This one is huge! It measures 63cm to the top of the seat tube but fit’s like a 60-61cm. Perfect for the taller fellow or lady who can appreciate the universal color of safety ($575). (Update: Sold)
This one is super special. This is a hand_built, brazed steel Tom Ritchey Mtn bike frame that was donated by our Rep Sophie awhile back (she actually used to race on it). Our mechanic Preston got inspired and built it up as a beautiful townie/commuter/do-all complete with nitto mini-rack, vintage XT parts, Brooks saddle, and a nice cruiser bar. It measures out to a 17″ but it’s pretty spread out…long chainstays and top tube. Basically, older Marin style Mountain bike geometry that transitions perfectly into an uber stable and comfy load hauler city bike. Sophie came by the other day and got to see it and informed us that not only is it a Ritchey but it was an early one that was built by Tom himself! Very cool. One of a kind purple people pleaser ($1,400). here are a few more detail shots…
Thursday May 15th is Bike to Work Day! If you are not a regular bicycle commuter it’s a great time to get out and ride to work with other San Francisco cyclists and take advantage of the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition’s planned events. If you are a regular bicycle commuter in SF, give yourself a pat on the back and make your presence felt on the streets.
Here are the details..http://www.sfbike.org
