Meet Tommy’s bike

Tommy-9Meet Tommy’s bike!  Tommy is a new mechanic here at Broadway.  Since he has started in April he has purchased about 6 new bikes- insane!
Today we meet his usual daily rider.
Hi Tommy- What kind of bike do you ride?

I ride the Salsa Fargo.  It’s a bit of an unusual bike-  It has a 29er wheel set on a road bike frame.  It’s designed for touring on places where there are no roads.

You updated it recently with some new bars I heard?  Yeah I put on drop bars with bar end shifters.  It cut a solid 10 minutes off my commute.

What do you like about your Salsa?  Probably the best part about it is its versatility.  I mean I ride it every day about 15 miles for my commute and this past weekend I went mountain biking with it.

Looks like you could fit really fat tires on it.  Yeah I have 2.1s on it now but they definitely could be bigger.  Actually in the front I have the enabler fork that is spaced at 135mm to fit in a rear wheel with a gigantic fat bike tire.

Now most people here at the shop ride skinny tire bikes, how come you ride a bike with relatively fat tires on your commute?  It’s way more comfortable!

SAFARI, new art in the Door 3 Gallery

The Door 3 Gallery is pleased to present new works by the local artist, Nell Ma’luf in the month of July.  Her show, “Safari,” features a series of hand-stitched meditations on time, memory, photography, and materiality.  Please join us on Thursday evening, July 3rd for an opening reception from 7 to 9 PM, or stop by to view the work during normal business hours at the Broadway Bicycle School.

Ma’luf on her work: “No matter what I’m doing, I’d almost always rather be traveling.  From hundreds of photos, a handful end up defining my memory of a place.  This collection of sashiko-inspired embroidery includes my favorite animals from safari in South Africa.  The rendering is an attempt to make the images unfamiliar, so that I can re-experience the original moment of what I saw.
