hey im an art student at wash u in st. louis and a new york native ( i live out in douglaston). i just started getting into bikes this summer when i bought a 70's motobecane nomad mixte. im trying both to ride and build bikes but with studio ive found little time for either. its also pretty hard to find quality old parts and frames in st. louis and i haven't really checked out shops in nyc. i have a simonelli (anyone know anything about this make?) and vitus 979 frame set really looking foward to winter break and getting some riding and building done.
