Tales From The Road: St. Louis at Xmas
Well, I've made two trips back to my hometown of St. Louis in the last month. And I've brought back a ridiculous amount of bike parts. I acquired a bunch of the usual goodies from Campagnolo, Suntour, Shimano etc. And some 90's parts like MR2 Racer Orb pedals and Coda Magic Motorcycle cranks. But, I've branched out to some pre-war components too! I'm learning about these as I go.
