Intern Graduation Day @Pedal Revolution!!

Congratulations to Pedal Revolution intern OJ who successfully graduated his 6 month internship at the shop yesterday!! Its been a real pleasure having OJ with us. He loves building bikes and has a great eye for color and detail. OJ surprised all of us here at Pedal Rev when he showed up unexpectedly on a Sunday, one month into his internship and announced that he was determined to build himself a bike from the frame up (his earn-a bike). He spent the next 6 hours doing just that  and now enjoys the fruits of his labor riding to and from work everyday.

Here are a couple shots of OJ hard at work on his last bike project – a beautiful Trek 800 rebuild with an excellent color scheme. OJ is headed to school this fall and is hoping to find work with Parks and Rec coaching young people in sports.

Best of luck OJ!



Tangent City Mountain Bike @ Pedal Revolution Refurbished Bike Update

Another nice upright conversion here that hits some of the usual marks for a Pedal Revolution rehab. This steel framed 26″ wheeled smaller bike had it’s original knobbyish tires discarded for some nice new Continental Touring Plus tires.  The original flat handlebar was replaced with a Pedal Revolution favorite, the classic chrome Wald (USA!!!) “tourist” (aka model # 8095) bar.  Naturally, the bike also got some new brake pads a bit a of flair from new cables and colored housing.  This 17′” bike is a great do it all ride for someonearound 5’4″.  Part-Time Pedal Revolution summer sales staffer, and full-time kindergarten teacher, Daniel, said, “This bike will do everything”. Believe it, a multi-use and multi-purpose bike for just $325!

Trek Road/Upright Conversion @Pedal Revolution Refurbished Bike Update

A really nice rebuild on yet another classic-era Trek frame. New powder-coat paint and mostly new parts on this one including, wheels, tires, drive-train, brakes, bars, saddle. Larger lugged steel frame with ample tire clearance and compact drive-train with wide range rear gearing. Ready for everyday use and the occasional longer distance/camp out overnight. Some Pedal Rev parts favorites are represented here like: Shimano/Mavic CXP wheel-set, Schwalbe creme delta cruiser tires, Nitto stem, and Soma Oxford bars finished off with signature harlequin cloth tape wrap job.

Sized big! 63 Seat Tube x 57 Top tube. Variable fit with the shortish top tube but we matched a long stem to compensate. Great for somebody 6’2″ and up, might work for a shorter person with a really long inseam.

$850. SOLD!

Old West Scenic Bikeway…Warning! Bike touring and really cute dog content.

A few posts back we blogged a recent custom built New Albion Privateer touring bike that Pedal Revolution put together for a customer and her canine friend. Below is a link to her great write up from the recent Oregon bike tour that they did:

New Albion Homebrew @Pedal Revolution New Bike Update

This New Albion Homebrew went out the door today with a happy customer. She wanted a versatile road bike that could be converted to everyday commuter duty. It had to be light, fast, but equipped to carry all of her photography equipment to various  photo shoots.

We swapped the drop bars and downtube shifters for a Soma Oxford bar and IRD 9 Speed thumbshifters. The stock stem was switched out with a more upright Velo Orange quill stem. A softer saddle to accomdate an upright seating position was added as well as a set of reflective sidewall Panaracer Pasela tires. The final touch was a Wald basket for load carrying duty.

Pedal Revolution is excited to be stocking these super versatile, classic looking bikes. Road, touring, commuting, they do it all quite well with braze-on mounts for any manner of racks and fenders. Wide tire clearance is another feature that we love about this bike. The styling of the Homebrew is a nod to the classic steel bikes of yesterday; partially lugged construction, beautiful head badge, quill stem, and minimal branding make this bike a shop favorite.

There is a nice feature on the New Albion Homebrew on the Urban Velo website.  Check out the laudatory review here:
