Update on my New Bike

A while back my road bike got stolen so I’ve been trying to piece together a new bike. I had a KHS Flite 100 track frame and fork lying around. I had originally bought the frame from a fellow Michiganderleno after another bike of mine got stolen (throw me a pity party). I built it […]

Team Pigeon Track Bike

Flying Pigeon LA Bike Shop has been helping me rebuild an old track bike. So far they had it sand blasted, powder coated, faced, and chased. Yesterday I went in and John helped me install the headset. Looks good huh? I plan on documenting every step of the build process. Click the photos for more.

The Wolfpack Hustle LA Marathon Crash Race is a free bicycle race that follows the closed 26.1 mile LA Marathon course hours before the runners.

We’ve got PUBLIC Bikes in Stock. Take a look for yourself. They are designed in San Fransisco. My favorite is the periwinkle blue one on the far left. It’s got internal gears, a Brooks saddle, a “mixte” geometry, stylish rear rack, and a lugged fork. They even “built in” a cable guide through the top […]
