I visited local framebuilder Joseph Ahearne yesterday. He just moved all his Ahearne Cycles stuff from the SE Industrial District to St. Johns. His new shop is tucked into the corner of a broken-down old industrial warehouse under the St. Johns Bridge. It’s a beautiful location that will unfortunately be overrun with two major condo projects in the coming years.
Joseph has some great ideas for new products in the pipeline (I’m sworn to secrecy) and this recent profile in Dirt Rag Magazine has been making the phone ring a bit more than usual.
While I was there, I noticed this funny article he had cut out of a local paper and taped to one of his tool boxes. The title is “Death to Bike Thieves” and before I give the link, I’ll warn you that the language is very foul so be careful if you’re at work. Check it out.
