Field trip to Circle-A

New England is home to quite a few custom frame builders and this week a few of us from the shop visited Providence's Circle-A Cycles to check out the shop but more importantly to get fitted for new bikes!
I have never thought of getting a custom frame but, being on the tall side, I have had a really hard time finding a bike that fits me well. So I figured in order to get a bike that actually works for me, I need to get a custom build. At least that is what I keep telling myself. After a tour of their shop, Brian, pictured below, got me sized up for my new frame and starting plugging in numbers to get me a perfect fit for what I plan on doing with my bike (wheelies mostly). Check them out, the guys down there (Brian and Chris) are very cool and make some of the neatest looking bikes around.

Moving day

I was on Chic Cyclist's blog the other day and saw this pic of one of the mechanics who works here at Broadway. He built a shelving unit for the shop at his house and was transporting it over to Broadway on our bike trailer. Looks like hard work - he should have just used the shop Hummer!

Spring is here....

Well things are getting really busy around here! In years past, we had been closed on Mondays so that we could catch up on work and order parts but this year for the first time in many years we will be open 7 days a week during the Spring and Summer. So starting April 13th come on down to Broadway any day and we will be here! It should be a hoot!
