He's also done quite a bit for the Silicon Valley cycling scene, and helped to start the Silicon Valley Bicycle Coalition and Bicycle Exchange.
Greg has an amazing collection and a whole slew of stories, and I finally got to capture some of his bicycles.
|Greg in his element.|
That green beauty is a fillet brazed Schwinn Superior. It's heavy, but fast. I arrived right after he'd taken it on a ride through the hills. And those are not 650b wheels you're looking at - Greg rides anywhere from a 62 to a 65 cm frame! This is the bike that Greg plans on modeling a future dream bike after - he told me about his affinity for Schwinn, and how he loves the little details, like the fork crown.
|My Trek, Greg's Superior, and a glimpse of a very unique yellow Scwinn Paramount in the back.|
|The drivetrain on this beauty, with a Huret derailleur.|
|The car-wash Rossin.|
|A Hetchins and a Specialized - two very contrasting bikes.|
|As pretty as they are, he rides (and tells amazing stories) about each one! They're so well cared for I would have never guessed what some of these bikes had been through.|
|There were so many bikes it was impossible to frame them all.|
|The workbench of champions.|
|Fascinating bike with an interesting setup and generator hubs!|
|We dated it to 1968, based on the hub. Check out the dual spaced cable guides!|
