I snap a lot of photos each week and you can find me on
Flickr and Instagram.
Granted, 2012 is not over. But here are some snapshots that have captured some of my favorite memories of 2012. There are some missing, apparently I didn’t go crazy with Instagram until mid-summer.
We recently took delivery of a 2010
Raleigh Clubman. In this 6 minute clip we go through the basics of unboxing a bicycle. A full review will be available on http://www.CommuteByBike.com soon.
A walk through building a bicycle up from the boxed form. This is how most bikes show up to a bike shop, except for those boutique, build from scratch variety. We skim through some sections in order to get you through the whole unboxing, which normally takes 45 minutes to an hour.
The basic tools are used were :
Park Tool Allen Wrench Set
Feedback Sports – Sport Repair Stand
Park Tool Cable Cutter Photos of the Build Day
Cane Creek Headset
Not a woman friendly saddle
Vittoria Zaffiro Tires
National Bike Registry
Made in China
