PUSHBIKE San Francisco

I saw the above drawing by Grant of The Gross Unkle on Pedal Consumption yesterday

and I thought to post some photos from when I was able to visit Pushbike earlier this year.

I knew that while I was in SF I would need to make it down to the Mission and check out Pushbike.

I had seen several photos of this treasure trove and was certain it’d be amazing in person.

It was.  A veritable cycling memorabilia bonanza with treats from back in the day to modern accessories.

Sarah Murder, the owner of Pushbike, has successfully created a single stop for one of kind velo goodies.

From the rarest from the rare to daily riding essentials.  This boutique has all the bases covered.

The collection of vintage jerseys on hand spared you months of listless Ebay searching.

All of em were sick!

If you are ever in SF I suggest you make it a point to stop by and pick up a one of a kind gift for that

special cyclist in your life.  And one for yourself!

Sarah also helps run Cupid Courier Collective & Team Murder.

As the 2006 Female Cycle Messenger World Champion, 2006 Female Cycle Messenger National Champ,

Current Female Cycle Messenger Skid Champ, and many other victories over the years,

Sarah will surely be a force to reckon with along with the rest of Team Murder at this year’s NACCC.

It was nice to meet you and I look forward to hanging out when you’re in town later this year for NACCCs!

Stop by pushbikesf.com and check out the shop’s blog.

More photos from my SF trip are here. [5/23 EDIT] Congrats on the Best Bike Fashion Award!

A visit with Dustin Klein of
Cadence Clothing

Philipp and I had just left Trouble Coffee and cruised back downtown.

We were running out of daylight and had one more important stop for the day.

Last time I saw Dustin was NACCCs 2007 here in SF.

That was right before i dove headfirst into opening a bike shop.

Two years before that, I had bought my first Cadence shirt.

Fast forward to 2010 and Dustin is still doing what he does best and better than ever.

Its certainly a lair. A workshop. A velo-textile bat cave like no other.

This was peering behind the curtain, behind the scenes.

It was seeing where dozens of precisely practical and uniquely cycling appropriate garments and accessories originate.

We sat down and discussed upcoming projects on the Cadence horizon,

memories and accounts of how much the scene has changed since 2005,

and about the next NACCC being in Atlanta.

I had purchased some arm warmers earlier this year and had managed to rip them.

Of course I brought them with me as I knew I’d be riding alot.

What I didn’t know is that Dustin would repair em right on the spot. Thank you again!

Tucked away in Dustin’s workshop I found several special bikes:

Dustin’s trusty steed I’ve seen him on for years,

this gem in the corner,

a Burley tandem with internal cable routing,

and a R.E. Load Bilenky cargo bike.

Thanks for having us Dustin!

I look forward to seeing you here in Atlanta later this year for NACCCs!
