Pedal Revolution intern bike building day.

Today is intern bike building day at Pedal Revolution. Two of our current interns and one who recently graduated are building up their bicycles today with help from the staff. These guys can’t wait to get out and ride.

Handlebar set-up.

Pedal install.

Our recent internship graduate, Antonio came in to build up his new bike with some help from current intern Richard. Antonio is truing his wheels in the background while Richard sets up  the stem and bars in foreground.

We  had donuts today too. Not bad for a Monday.

Secret Surly Troll at Pedal Revolution.

Pedal Revolution built up a top secret Surly Troll for our customer Barry a few weeks back. After getting a few rides on it Barry has reported back that he is in love with this bike. The Troll is a newish bike from Surly that keeps with the do-all one bike mentality that Surly is known for. In this case its a 26″ wheeled mountain touring monster that is equally at home on Barry’s rough SF to Daly City commute, a sub 24 hour bike camping adventure, or ripping through some mountain bike trails on the weekend.

Barry opted to have the frame powdercoated to a more understated dark green from the original “Agent Orange” that Surly offers the frame in.

Nice wide dirt drop style bars for on road/off road comfort.

Wide range gearing for adventuring. Awesome Surly designed drop-out to accommodate Geared, single, internal hub (even Rohloff!) with room for racks and fenders and a Surly cargo trailer. Crazy!

Barry opted for the simplicity of cantilever brakes as opposed to discs but went with the best…Paul Components anodized black!

A stealth all terrain wonder-bike.

Pedal Revolution Used Bike Update 11-7-11

Winter is creeping in little by little in SF. Blustery days, temps dropping at dusk and some rainy days scattered in here and there are sure signs of our seasonal change.  No reason to stop riding the bike, just a reminder to have lights, gloves, fenders, and rain gear at the ready. Fall is a great time to get your bike “winterized” for all weather riding. Make sure your tires are in good shape. Rainy streets make tires more prone to flats as the water washes up more glass and debris and causes it to stick to wet tires. Fenders are a great option if the rain doesn’t intimidate you and will allow you to ride year round.  For serious rain riding, rain gear is necessary to keep the clothes dry. Things have mellowed a bit at Pedal Revolution in the last couple weeks giving us a bit of a breather from a very busy summer. We’ve had the opportunity to get some more used bikes refurbished and on the floor in the last week. Check them out…..
