Flying Pigeon LA gains vaunted Penny Farthing street cred

Penny Farthing wows the mechanics at Flying Pigeon LA
Fixies? Stupid. BMX? Lame. Bike races? Whatevs.

At Flying Pigeon LA, we know what is coming next, and we’re preparing for the future! Which is why we’re proud to say we are now qualified to true the rear wheels of penny farthing (high wheel, high wheeler, or ordinary) bicycles.

Removing the rear wheel on a Penny Farthing at Flying Pigeon LA

Yes, this past week I removed the rear wheel of a penny farthing and trued it up. Free of charge! This is part of a secret government program sponsored by the dental-industrial-complex to get more people on these bikes (thereby getting one giant step closer to knocking their front teeth out when they crash). The dentists always win!

Anyway, we also work on ordinary (i.e. regular, or “safety”, bicycles) too. Take a look at our Service & Support page for a sampling of our rates and fee schedules. We will barter for home grown eggs, vegetables, and are always willing to barter work and parts on your bike for skilled labor. Cold hard cash and swipey cards with pretend digital money also accepted.
