Well things are humming along here in Boulder, but every day it seems that we are falling a bit further behind! With the new shop, though, we are having some interesting items roll through the door. On friday, a nifty Jack Taylor tandem rolled in. What is fun about the Jack Taylor bikes is their graphics. The pin striping is great, but this one has a couple of really nice Reynods 531 transfers.
Tandem's are a pain to ship, and if there is anyone local who needs a frame that is about the equivelent of a 55 or 56cm up front and a relatively small 47 in the rear, this is your chance. This bike appears to originally have been a real touring model, but the racks and lighting are gone.
With the Bicycle Quarterly's recent Jack Taylor issue, I'm kinda pumped up about it. Speaking of Bicycle Quarterly, we now have every back issue of Bicycle Quarterly in the shop and available for sale. In fact, we even have sample copies of most every issue hanging at the front of the shop for folks to briefly examine before purchase.
This coming week should be exciting. We plan to get photos this week on our site of our new Boulder Bicycle lugged frame. And before the end of the week, if all goes well, we hope to have a modified for ahead style stem Berthoud decaleur mounted and photographed.
