This month, Via Bicycle turns 28 years old. That’s 28 years of dealing with vintage bicycles and vintage parts. With the advent of the internet and Ebay, we are able to help so many more collectors than ever before. This summer will mark my 14th year at Via Bicycle. I love working there. I love my coworkers, diagnosing and fixing what other bicycle shops regard as “antiquated” bicycles and components. I love finding rare parts and finding them homes in the collector world. I love the collector world, all the personalities and histories and amazing stories.
This Valentine’s Day, I ask Via Bicycle to be my Valentine.
