I purchased a fairly dormant Bicycle Classics in 2003 not for 'mercenary' reasons, but to escape the Corporate world after twenty-plus years, help fill a need that I felt was largely going unmet, and, hopefully, to have a much cooler job.This is a real LLC that pays real taxes, insurance, legal fees, banking fees, etc., etc. ), or sell anything made of carbon fiber, or that was made in China.Visiting my local Powell’s bookstore involves a normally direct route to the back of the store where the cycling section resides among the other sports related tomes.I am always on the hunt for vintage cycling repair manuals from days of yore.When you consider that wagon trains were headed west on the Oregon trail just 50 years earlier (wherein many white settlers died on the way and wherein many resident Native tribes were displaced or wiped out by diseases or combat) it’s fascinating and sobering to take in the extent of the road development by this time in history in the Pacific Northwest.The booklet contains 59 routes, covering the entire state of Oregon, as well as passage to the bordering states of Washington, Idaho and California.Bicycle Classics will never be very profitable, but that's OK by me. We sell top-quality items with craftsmanship and lasting value.

On this recent jaunt, nothing of interest emerged from the crammed bookshelves.
