Another Bike, For Another Tony
Tony Gallagher, photographer extraordinaire, contacted me, last week, looking for a speedy commuter/city bike. "Speedy", as compared to his Schwinn 3-speed with ape-hangers and a banana seat, that is...
He came over and checked out what frames I had available, and he picked out one of my favorites, an all-chrome early '80s Ross Mt. Whitney. I have had that frame for years, and just recently pulled it out with the intention of building it up.
Deore DX wheels, Shimano 600 "Arabesque" derailleurs, vintage bar-end shifters, bikini fenders, Shimano brake levers, DX cantilevers, half-step plus a granny touring crank ... good stuff!
Tony picked it up, Sunday evening, with a smile on his face. Another happy customer!
