Yeah, I’m a bike nerd.

I could go on about this bike, but I won’t. It’s really pretty and works really well. It was built by a friend of mine for a bike show. To see some “glamour shots” of it, follow this link. http://royalhcycles.com/steves-cross/

I’ve ridden bikes for a long time and it still gives me a great deal of pleasure. I used to race a bit,

Old school!
Old school!

but now just ride for fun.

Oysters
Yeah, we’re shucking and eating oysters during a ride.

I also collect bikes, don’t worry I still ride them. Here’s a few – select for a slide show.

 

I instruct some “spin” classes, but still like to get outside and ride. Please click on a picture.

    Nice to meet a fellow bike nerd! Gorgeous ride. I’m not familiar with Royal H. Custom steel?

      Hi Sam,

      Nice to meet you too! Royal H.’s are all custom and mostly steel. They are built by Bryan Hollingsworth (who also does some work for Seven) and he is a real craftsman. The bike in the pic was built for Philly handbuilt show a couple of years ago. My wife can probably relate to yours (Yeah, it’s a bike… and.) Looking forward to working with you!

    Wow, those are some very impressive bikes. I have actually been looking a lot at bikes recently since I’ve been planning on purchasing one before the summer is here.

      Hi Bob,

      I’m a bit of a nut about hand built bike frames. This guy is a legend http://www.bilenky.com/. but, he’s in Philly…and probably has quite a waiting list. Getting on a bike is a lot of fun and there are lots of nice ones to be had for reasonable $. A good bike shop with knowledgeable staff who don’t try to “up” sell you is key!
