Today is one year since I started this blog to record the process of refurbishing my 1971 Columbia Sports III. Several design changes, lots of new content, three new (old) bikes, and many new friends later, here we are. Huzzah!
I may or may not have bought myself a little OBB birthday present yesterday, but I'll save that for tomorrow. I'll give you a hint: it's English.
About the image: while casting about the interwebs for "bicycle" and "birthday" images, I came across this perfect one from the exceptionally excellent BuyOlympia, run online from Portland, Oregon (they started in Olympia, Washington, hence the name) and featuring the very awesome cards of Sesame Letterpress, based in Brooklyn, New York. The image above is cropped from their Happy Birthday Bicycle card. Go buy some. Really. Go do it.
I am no longer answering technical questions about bicycles or responding to e-mails asking me about value, age, etc. of old bicycles. Please check the resources I have listed on the sidebar if you are looking for this information. This is a comprehensive list of everything I know about, so if you can't find it there, neither can I.
