Some old, some new..

Here are a few bikes put on the floor this week…

This one is the last Surly Pacer we have leftover in the old Silver color.  Recently rebuilt into a sweet city bike. 1 x 7 drivetrain. 54cm – $995.

We got a few KHS Flite 100’s in stock to help with the demand for affordable fixie/singlespeeds.  Butted steel framesets, clean looks and solid build for $585.

Salsa Casseroll custom build.  This bike is rides so nice!  Handbuilt Velocity Aerohead rims laced onto Shimano 105 hubs. Nitto Dream Drop bar, Nitto stem and seatpost.  Chris King headset. San Marco Rolls saddle.  Someone needs to pick this up and make themselves very, very happy. 56cm – $1,695.

KHS Cidi 3spd refined city cruiser. $420.

As usual we end of with a lot of tallish used bikes. Both of these are full rebuilds.  This one is a Trek Sport 370 rebuilt from a road bike into a more upright riding city bike.  Updated the drivetrain and wheels, added some comfy 37mm Pasela tires. 62cm-$575.

Another one here. Centurion Accordo rebuilt with the same big Pasela tires. An excellent choice for a bigger rider not only giving a cush ride but more support to the wheels. 62cm – $595.

Rockhopper singlespeed city masher. Super deal 20″ – $210. SOLD.

Specialized Crossroads rebuild. 17″ – $295. SOLD.

Beautiful Bianchi built Puch road bike in sparkly green with painted to match frame pump. Nice Campagnolo bits on this one. 53cm –$850. SOLD.

Pedal Rev interns coming strong in 2010!

Some random shots of some of our interns learning the ropes.

We work with these young people everyday as part of our youth work internship program.

If you’ve wondered where the Non-profit part of Pedal Revolution comes from…well, you’re looking at it.

San Francisco youth between the ages of 16 -20 can apply to our work internship program.  They work in the shop alongside us learning bicycle mechanics and assembly as well as fundamental job responsibilities.

For many of our interns, this is their first job experience.

Additional to the job training they receive in the the shop they have the opportunity to build themselves a bike. The requirement is that they must build it from scratch, repairing or refurbishing each part along the way as part of their learning process.

Many of  our interns deal with challenging circumstances outside of work.  Aside from training and employment at Pedal Revolution, they also have the opportunity to work with our Youth Case Worker staff who assist them in finding stable  housing, GED tutoring, college research and application process, preparing  resumes, and other areas of their lives where they need assistance.

The majority of the young people that take part in our program have little or no prior experience with bicycles.

They begin by learning basic skills like fixing flat tires.

It isn’t long before they are tearing apart bicycles and rebuilding them from the ground up.

We get to witness their enthusiasm and skill level grow along with their confidence.

It’s awesome.

Thanks for continuing to support Pedal Rev and our youth interns!
