Centurion Lemans 62cm Retro Town @ Pedal Revolution Refurbished Bike Update

pana1Today we finished another retro-style build here at Pedal Revolution—this Centurion has been completely rebuilt into a comfortable and reliable machine for zipping around the city.


For this bike, nearly everything was replaced; the only vintage item is the classy-looking Sugino crankset.  Highlights of the build include a Shimano/Mavic wheelset, IRD ratcheting thumb shifters, Soma Oxford handlebar, and a 9-speed 11/32 tooth cassette for a decent low gear.


The Centurion also features great stopping power via the new Tektro R539 brake calipers, controlled by the very cool looking retro-style levers.  And you’ll notice that the cork grips have been treated with shellac for better durability and a nice light-brown color.


There’s adequate clearance for fenders if you’re trying to make it a rain-friendly rig for the impending wet weather.

Come check it out today!!


“What’s in the Stand?” Fillet Brazed Mikkelsen Road Bike @Pedal Revolution

This beauty came through the shop recently. A customer of Pedal Revolution brought in this lovely custom fillet brazed road frame from the long-time Alameda framebuilder Bernie Mikkelsen. He had a long list of parts he wanted to have us build it up with, including a White Industries/Mavic wheelset, Paul Components touring Cantilevers, Chris King headset, and a bunch of other goodies. The end result was a gorgeous “all-arounder” of a road bike. So far, its debut has been at a couple of the local cross races on the weekends and some heavy commuting miles. Our customer puts his bikes through the paces and this one will be no exception… definitely not designed to sit in a garage and look pretty, this bike was made to eat up miles for many years to come.

Specialized Rock Hopper Xtra Small @ Pedal Revolution Refurbished Bike Update

 Specialized Rock Hopper 24″ @Pedal Revolution Refurbished Bike Update

The blue beauty above has been restored for the less vertiginous cyclist.  In all likelihood, back in the day, this 24″ wheeled bicycle was marketed as a “youth” bike.  Being much more broad-minded here in San Francisco circa harvest moon 2014, we just consider it a sweet utility ride for ANYONE around 5′ tall.


Per usual, as with most Pedal Revolution refurbished bikes, all of the essential wear and tear items have been replaced; tires/tubes, chain, cables and housing.  Additionally,  an upright bar/stem was added for comfort.  As if that were not enough, tan cork grips (a staff favorite) create just the right aesthetic synergy with the tires while the orange cable housing harmonizes with the logo.


Typical of all terrain bikes from the period, this bike has plenty of clearance for fenders and specific mounts for front and rear racks but really the stand-out feature of this bike is it’s proportion.   Not only do the smaller wheels properly scale with the frame visually, they create a bike that handles much better than a typical contemporary commuter bike with large (aka 700c size) wheels pegged on a very small frame.


This is an unfortunate misnomer. “Curb Hopper” or “Street Stepper” would be a more appropriate name.
