I guess this one's not all that old, but it is kinda cool, in it's simplicity. 😎 It's

on my '95 Cannondale Killer V. EDIT: Whoa, I don't know how I put the pic in the middle of the paragraph like that. I'm pretty sure I couldn't, if I tried. 🤔😉

Glad to see Bloor Cycle represented here. My mum bought me a Claud Butler Gran-Sport at Bloor Cycle in '71

What's left of the Bicycle Sport decal on my Holdsworth. Bicycle Sport (Mike & Mike's bike shop), home of Mariposa bikes and later Bicycle Specialties. It was my favorite shop in Toronto in the 70's, and I must have walked past this very bike in the showroom - I visited the place so often.

Upgrade Cycle Works in Chicago. Gone now, doesn't appear to have been around all that long. Any idea of the shop sticker underneath it? Sportif, perhaps? It's on a Centurion Accordo RS if that's any clue.

I don't have any shop stickers but I do have one of these...





Only went in there once when my parents bought land up in Sturgeon Bay. They retired there in 86 and built a house. The shop was there in 80? maybe. When my parents retired up there the shop was gone.

Thanks for sharing this!

Shop was operated by two Scots for many years and catered to serious cyclists even before "the boom" hit.

IIRC they retired and moved home to Scotland sometime in the later eighties - cannot recollect the specific year.

This transfer was a stock pattern offered by a trade association. Dealer's could send in the information they wanted printed on it and save on the setup cost of having a transfer designed from scratch.

Ironically, it was also employed by a neighbouring Menlo Park establishment - Joselyn's. The latter was more of a "Mom & Pop" neighbourhood shoppe.

Campus Bike of Ann Arbor, Michigan as worn by a Schwinn Sports Tourer of 1972. Cycle recently found by enthusiast at a garage sale. Must have been one of the rare area sales missed by our oddjob2.

Do you happen to know if the Menlo Park Joselyn's was affiliated with the Joselyn's that was on Lighthouse Blvd in Monterey for many decades?

I vaguely remember when Sugden and Lynch closed. Some of my friends in college used to talk about that place all the time. I think maybe I went inside once.

Had not known previously of the Joselyn's in Monterey.

One thing I learned in recent decades regarding this name is that there are at least three different spellings. Was the name of the Monterey shop spelt the same as the Menlo Park shop?

Sugden & Lynch -

went on one visit in the early '80's because a friend tipped me that they had Campag Record rear mechs for US 10.80 each. bought three and put them away in their handsome dark blue cartons.

IIRC the story within the trade at that time was that although they had been discontinued Teddy Carnielli wanted to use them on a particular model. evidently he and Tullio were old friends from their racing days and he was able to persuade T. to put them back into production.

whilst there, spoke with the Caledonians regarding my search for Gnutti replacement cones. in the Caledonian version of English Gnutti comes out sounding like "GA-nutti."

local frame maker Ed Litton purchased his Pogliaghi there in about 1969.

Hmm, I lived in Menlo Park from 1983-1990 and don’t recall either of those shops from back then. I was wrenching at California Bikes in Palo Alto and then very briefly at Garners Pro (as gugie knows) for the latter half of that time, so Inhad some sense of the competition.

Neither one had anywhere near the public presence of PAB or Wheelsmith.

IIRC both closed during the 1980's but cannot recall a specific year for either.

Some shops were able to weather the recessioin of 1982 only to close shortly thereafter...

I bought my PX10 from Sugden and Lynch in 1970.




Didn't Mr. Lynch have a brother who had a shop on California Ave. in Palo Alto, simply called "Lynch's"?
1980 is after my time. Was California Bikes on California Ave? Perhaps it was previously Lynch's?

Lynch name may be a possible source of confusion as there was also an Ed Lynch, a well known California cycling personality.

AFAIK he had no connection to S&L.

It was indeed. Owner was Fred Morse, whose father ran the shop on the Stanford campus. The California Ave. shop closed up around 1989, and Fred moved to Napa and became an artist/painter.

I haven't been following this thread lately, decided to catch up. Note that both myself and nlerner both worked for the Garner brothers, but missed each other by about 6 months. Neal was at the Alma store with Mike, I was mostly in Redwood City with Rick. Or Mick and Rick as we used to call the twin brothers. One of us might have built or sold this!

Correct. The Palo Alto store was heavily damaged by a grease fire at the Hobie's restaurant next to it and never reopened - Mike Garner ran it. The Redwood City shop was sold and has a new name, but it still had the old Garner's Pro Bike shop sign up front last time I drove by a year ago. Rick bought a bike shop up in Oakhurst, California, I believe.

This is on my 1977 Raleigh Comp GS
I bought this from the original owner who lived in Cupertino California. He bought this bike and an International or Professional I canít remember. This bike was supposed to be for his wife and she hated the bike. When I got it the bike was like NOS! Joe

Any relation to George Garner - shop in the northern suburbs of Chicago?

As far as I know, no. The brothers Garner grew up in Redwood City and went to Sequoia High School, I believe.
