One On One has lots of vintage stuff(mostly Bridgestone) on the walls. Gene O used to race them back in the day. They're located downtown, on Washington, next to SexWorld. They sell a mean cuppa joe too. Head back to the shop area for stories. Ask for a look in the basement for a look-see at the "pile". Last I was there I saw a Ritchey buried pretty deep. There's other cool shops in town too. Mpls has a great cycling culture.

26 x 24

We've got a few old timers. A Cannondale 26 x 24 hangs from the rafters, and super clean chrome Mongoose from 1984 (?), might be down here by the weekend.

More followup.

visit to MSP was cool. I'm not sure how the rest of the country deals with winter! It's cold there. Norcal winters rock

I made it to one on one. Hurl, sorry I didn't make it by your place. next time I promise.
