January 11th was a pretty devastating day for me, and while the process of recovery is far from over, one thing I lost that day has been replaced.
An old 80's Bianchi, probably my favorite riding bike to date suffered ill fate due to the fire. But, with the help of a client and a buddy a replacement has been found and the Be.A.Bike process can begin.

Spring ride temps are here, road bikes are coming out to ride but are your tires ready?
Even though you have no rips, holes or visual damage, they may still need to be replaced. Here is a visual Que to when they may need to be replaced.
As many know, the shop suffered a devastating fire which resulted in the loss of nearly everything. Bikes, clothing, memorabilia... all of it. Except a few things.
I never got around to digging through a collection of classic bikes I had stored in the basement, and lucky for them they only received some minor water damage from the amazing fire crew who battled the blaze and won.
So, I dug through what was left and came up with this Raleigh. I never paid much attention to it as it was a model I was unfamiliar with, and the components were nothing super fancy. However, paying closer attention to it, it is unique in its own way.
