“Lots of 80s Italian MTBs, and yeah its as bad as you think with companies getting bought out, weird to see Frejus and Bottechia here looking like walmart bikes. Theres a pretty big bike flea market at the Porta Portese mostly filled with dudes spray painting stolen bikes, but there are a few nice road bikes built with campy. The guy wanted about 350 euro for the Lazzaretti but its gone now, 500 euro for the Colnago but it was built up with Shimano, 250 euro for the Messina, and 250 euro for the Liberati which has some Campagnolo parts but Sakae cranks Im thinking of trying to bring that home let me know what you think. Crazy graffiti all over, even some by friends from Philly, its mostly shitty but the subways are bombed. Tons of Ofmega everywhere. Enjoy. ”
Ali Hassan’s Dreddy Merckx Team issue ride……
Side Notes: This is the proper way to rock one of these racks, on the seat tube, lower center of gravity, not all high like some motocross fender. Also, the bikechain-seat security system is way back in style, so are hose clamps on your quick releases….early 90′s stylee
Rumors are true. Landlords Cycling will be involved with a retail space with an espresso bar on top of Midvale in Germantown North West Philadelphia. (clearly riding up Midvale will be most the acceptable way to reach us) Exterior and Interior hookup will be provided by ICY Signs and Landlords.
Scheduled opening is Julyish. haha.
(The folding bike idea didn’t work out. Brian Hickey said he couldn’t picture it.)
