The Bicycle Stand Vintage Ride

When: The last Saturday of the month.
Where: The Bicycle Stand in Long Beach CA. (a LBS)

Today's route (estimated 45) miles with some rollers. A no drop ride with regular regroups. If you are ever in the L.A. area, The Bicycle Stand is a must see shop. My few photos are a small sample.

How cool! I would love to do this, what time do they meet up? I am in Ventura County and the ride down is about 1.5 hours minimum. Maybe just a visit , those Medici’s are interesting for sure as well as the other bikes.

Are those frames and bikes in the shop for sale?

More details on the ride, please. Start time, start location, route,...

I never knew Bicycle Stand had started a vintage ride.

ill try to join next month when i find info on the ride.

@Bad Lag Yes all you see at Bicycle Stand is for sale and those photos are a small portion of the inventory they have. Some are on consignment so there's a small premium on prices. Worth going to take a look.

It leaves from the shop at 10:00 am.
2740 E. Broadway Ave.
Long Beach CA 90803

The route may vary.

Today, the route went west through Long Beach and then to the Palos Verdes Peninsula via Anaheim-PV blvd north-PV blvd West and here I peeled off (about noonish) but they were headed to San Pedro to a Sandwhich shop and from there I assume they would head back to the shop.

Many of the bikes and frames have price tags. And the prices seemed reasonable for a shop. There was a Medici with non Dura Ace or Record components for $475.00 If you know someone who needs an Eroica ride and doesn't want to bother with CL or wrenching, The Bicycle Stand is the place.

I would probably enjoy just visiting the shop to look. To bring home a new frame or bike would be seriously excellent. I think my Bob Jackson is 58 cm (C-C) but I don't recall accurately. Something in that size or a even 1-2 cm smaller would be great!

I could use a box of spokes, too, if they have those. I have hubs and rims but no way to join the two. :-)

Combine that with a bike ride would make for a very cool outing.

Drillium chain stays and fork would just not survive long with me aboard. Maybe they would work for a small, wirey, racing-fit guy but not with someone my size (way over 6' tall). A high speed descent on a rough road,... heavy braking,... I would not expect the frame to last long under me.

Good thing it is too small because it is seriously calling out to me. :-)

The Bicycle Stand is a great shop. They did frame restoration, paint and decals on my '73 Super Course. I was very happy with the results, and turned a found, scrap metal frame into one of my favorite rides. I haven't done any of their rides, it's a long drive for me, but I have seen the owner, Evan, on the Pasadena Rides several times. One day I'll make it down there.


Frame as found.

Back from Bicycle Stand, restored, painted (my custom color choice) new decals applied.

Great detail work.


One of my favorite rides.

Beautiful Raleigh. The chrome fork and rear stays are really set off by the BRG paint. Well done

Its a great shop. They helped me with some parts for my Raleigh Mk IV, including some Campy cone nuts for the brakes.

It should be happening tomorrow. I contacted the leader wrt to the planned course. I need miles, climbing, and dirt on my Eroica bike which are all available from the start.


Those cables!!

The piercings have a brazed in wall. A bike was made for Eddy with that type of chainstay for time trials when he rode for Faema.
Not a fork like that though.

Evan was sick so the ride wasn’t official. Bob, on his Super Mondia and I rode to PV for some climbing and dirt.
BUT, there is this in two weeks:
