    SFO Airport book

    So who else got one?

    SFO - San Francisco International Airport - Museum - From Repack to Rwanda The Origins, Evolution, and Global Reach of the Mountain Bike

    Every page is a centerfold, YEHAAAAA!

    Only flub, I found is the picture of the Specy Sworks Stumpjumper FSR described as the Sworks Epic.

    I remain astonished by the amount of care the museum staff put into the project.

    Don't have one but wish I had. Though it was pretty cool sitting on my tailgate after a ride with Jacquie Phelan poring through her book.

    I agree. Everything from how they handled collection to storage to display and even the part where they didn't know what to do when the tires started getting flat.

    The book is well done. Those guys are amazing and I have always enjoyed the displays that they've put together.

    Thanks for all the lenders of the bikes and other items from the guys that visit this forum. I enjoyed seeing your stuff. And for Joe Breeze for doing a lot of wrenching and parts procurement.

    What are they going to do with those old bikes after the show?

    Out with the old in with the new!
    Seek: Koski Trailmaster. Breezer Series 2, or 3. Fillet brazed Ibis Custom. Cunningham Racer. Otis Guy (but not that softride model). That's all I need I don't need anything else... except... except for an old Mountain Goat bar stem combo. And that's all I need. I don't need anything else. Except.....

    Find another museum! There's something to be said for having an old bike on display rather than sitting in a dark basement.

    Tossed in the dumpster out back. We'll all be hovering around waiting to pick up the scrap.

    That'd be cool. Or...I don't know, ride them? I'm giving serious thought to taking my Bontrager right from the exhibit and racing it at Keyesville.

    Where is the exhibition? I read it was in the international terminal. Is it accessible without travel or use of gates?

    Yeah, it's before security at the international terminal at sfo. Walk pass the ticket checkers and it's along the walkway along the back hallway.

    Note: ending early FEB. Go now or miss out on a great collection of mostly norcal bikes.
