Classic Cycles - Bainbridge, WA

Just wanted to put a plug in for this really cool bike shop if anyone is in the area. They have a bicycle museum with lots of vintage steel bikes and I was able to snag the last wool jersey they had in stock. Will definitely come back next time Iím in WA.

This frameset and some bits came to me from Jeff G. Only met the man once, but 1st class in my experience.


Was determined to be Classic in a way he only alluded to.

Jeff is a gentleman and a scholar, great guy.

He sold Classic Cycles on quite some time ago.

Still has a vast stunning collection that includes many of the early, first 6 day factory team Paramount tandems that are all literally and truly one of a kind.

They include a factory team sizing and fitting one that is I believe one of the very first.

I remember riding with Jeff back in 1998 / 99 and he rode that Rickert !

A great friend over many years and a very discerning collector.

here's a pic from the good old days. That's Jeff in the middle with the sunglasses. I'm on the right, also with dark glasses, on the red Pogliaghi
