Shop Visit Alleycat Cycles

IMG_3174
Finding myself down in Loring park on Friday I visited Alleycat Cycles (formerly Kitsune), located in the alley behind Joe’s Garage. The shop has been open for a while now, though many in the Twin Cities are just beginning to find out about them. While they are a full service repair shop, they also have a great collection of vintage bicycles and parts, with an emphasis on classic BMX.

If you’re in the area, make sure to stop by and say hello.

Peacock Groove: In Progress: 650B Single Speed

IMG_3212
I swung into Peacock Groove the other day to get my Capricorn up on a frame table, and took the opportunity to snap a few of one of Erik’s NAHBS bikes in progress. A 650b crossish single speed made from Columbus Multi Shape tubes and lugs.

note the bent top tube, the top head tube lug is flipped upside down to allow the correct angle of entry for the curved top tube(that’s what she said) .  The stays are also bent, a pretty difficult thing to do properly when working with non round tubes.

I’ve been saying that Jonathan’s the future for some time now, and with each edit he proves it more and more.  The first double bars I’ve seen on a fixed gear, and 700c at that.  So good.
