    Shamefully no, even though I passed through SFO at the end of last summer. I hate to admit I haven't even seen the Klunkers movie.

    I just flew through SFO yesterday and finally had a chance to see it. Really worth the time.

    Maybe let us know if you stop through longer and we can get UberAwesome Vintage Ride Organizer, Rumpfy, to work his magic. Plus, we have all the bike sizes covered among the locals.

    Anyhow, sorry for the hijack, cursivearmy and StanLee. I really like that setup. Easy to see things, visually.

    Seeing as I had an informal job interview in SF on Monday and am flying up shortly for a second round, I might be enjoying an extended stay in SF starting in a month or so.

    Yeah, I have. Super fun to see them and even more fun to see other people equally enthralled. I love that Joe Breeze did the assembly on this one prior to the exhibit. How many people here can say that Joe Breeze put together their bike?!

    I wonder how often then have to open the display cases and air the tires back up on those bikes?

    Yup...And Ti Paragon (Mark & Gary) stem. Koski fork and Railbike lugs. (the lug that is behind the head tube) The Railbike outriggers used three points/lugs from the bike to attach the outriggers. There is also a lug on the right chain stay in front of the drop-out.
    The other one would be on the original Trailmaster fork (who knows where that is).

    Hello,
    i'm pretty sure Mr. Wes Williams of WILLITS-BIKES was building a so called "Type II Ultra" in his Crested Butte days. This fork featured a Type II crown with tapered legs, but as far as i know the dropouts were flat style (maybe PMW) and centered to the legs.

    dang, guys...I miss seeing these on a regular basis! Kayla will be back in Lincoln in January. I'll have her stop by the shop and take some pics for me. I never get to get back there! glad to see you guys got a gallery up.

    give me a shout if you'd like to do something bigger/crazier as far as the website goes.

    some pics...

    I got to go back to Lincoln last week for a wedding and a baby shower and stopped by MWC on Friday. Nate was kind enough to let me take some pics of the shop. if you've never been there, you're missing out:



















    here's the link to the rest of the gallery: Monkey Wrench Cycles - a set on Flickr


    also, Nate let me dig a broken Trek 800 Antelope frame out of his junk pile because it was the very first MTB I ever owned as a kid. black with teal lettering...yeah, I'm a nerd.

    anyways, thanks again for all the years of awesome service you guys gave me when I lived there. hope to move back soon and enjoy having you as my home shop again!

    Nate, the shop looks incredible. Probably my all-time favorite. Great job.

    just a note of disappointment: I did NOT get to see my favorite VRC in the MWC collection on this visit. (personally, I think this one should never leave the store...)



    Nate, if this one ever needs a new home, call me. (it's about the only one that would fit me anyways...)
