Headbadge Hunter: Rescuing the Beautiful Branding of Long Lost Bicycles

http://www.collectorsweekly.com/articles/headbadge-hunter/Jeffrey Conner doesn’t remember exactly how he acquired his first bicycle headbadge during a post-college gig as a bike mechanic in Seattle, but he does know it was an English-made, Rocket-brand badge someone had spray-painted blue.

"Had it happen a few times when I tried a shorted stem. Ended up going back to the longer one as the bike was more stable through the corners. Only a centimetre difference on the stem length but made a huge difference in handling."

Eight Long Weeks

Posted on July 21, 2011 at 11:17pm 5 Comments

Eight weeks ago I woke up, jumped out of bed, and almost collapsed on the floor. Overnight my right knee had swollen. It could handle a little weight but not much. A trip to a Physio, the first of many, identify the problem as a slight tear of the meniscus.  Apparently this is a common cycling injury.
