Episode Summary

A few weeks ago, when spring began to show itself in New York, the streets were suddenly flooded with cyclists of every color (a pale version of every color) and shape (lumpy), and we got a little jealous because in the last month, FADER editorial's bike fleet has been devastated due to inept shipping, giant potholes and general lack of desire to risk death on fixed gears. So when we heard Jack Spade on Bleecker had set up a temporary bike shop along with Landmark Bicycles, we had to go down and suss out the situation. And that's where we met Jimbo, the 71-year-old retired mechanical engineer turned bike wrench who can Frankenstein your beater back together for a minimal price with bountiful storytelling. You can take your bike in for minor repairs or bigger fixes on Fridays from 12-6 and Saturdays from 11-6. If you need a totally brand new old bike, Jimbo can hook you up with one from his evergrowing collection near Coney Island. And as soon as it stops raining every day, we'll see you in the streets for Bike Month NYC.moreless
