Flying Pigeon LA inventory on March 30, 2011

Oops we did it again, we made another video. This one is bound to launch my career as a voice-over actor. In this episode, I walk around the shop and talk about: all our Gazelles in a row, a new Pedersen bike in the shop, all the repair work that came our way in the […]
