Lots of late Friday nights assembling bikes for the big Saturday sales rush, with pizza provided by Alan and Susie. I still have the Peugeot UO-8 I custom built for my bride back in 1973, with the Bikecology sticker still intact. My wife later became afraid of riding in traffic, so I built her a mountain bike and repurposed the Peugeot as my beater/commuter.
Hey, do I know you? I worked for Bikecology my entire senior year of HS, 1972 and at least one subsequent summer. In the Bekins building. If I recall, Alan had specialized in draft cases as an attorney. I never really followed his career, but now I see how successful he was in the bike biz.
