Odin sacrificed an eye, trading eyesight for insight, and disguised as Vegtam the Wanderer, traveled the world in quest of the wisdom of the ages. I have the eye sacrifice part covered. I'll get back to you when that wisdom thing kicks in.

Heron Road

The Heron Bicycle Company recently folded up again for the second, and probably last time. I purchased the bicycle shown from the late, great Sheldon Brown at Harris Cyclery. I was told it was the literally the last bike made before the first Heron failure. Unlike the second generation bikes, it has 531 tubing and horizontal dropouts. Also, I had it repainted by Chris Kvale. Eventually it is probably going to get upright bars and a chaincase to make it a better town bike.

(Note: the red chain is not BMX! It is a vintage Everest.)
