  1. King Cage Ron repaired Alyssa’s Ti frame last year for a couple bucks and some AK salmon, and there is a check for my mom from Bruce Gordon sitting in my garage right now because she paid for shipping twice on a birthday present (tires) she bought for me.
    I love the small world connections of bike geeks.

    • Ron and Bruce are two of the more interesting characters pictured here. Bruce tried to sell me a pair of his tires, as he did with everyone else that walked through the door at the small BG/Herse/DiNucci/Nobilette event.

    • Thanks Andy! It’s my first camera, and I’ve been happy to learn with it. I still see a lot of room for improvement and am confident that I have a long way before I outgrow this camera. Not bad for less than $500.

      Actually, I found a source for the exact camera and lens I have– the Olympus E-PM1– for $299 ( I would highly recommend this model, for the price. The camera body will accept other lenses in the Micro Four-Thirds family, which allows some significant customization.
