Design & Consultation

While I don't have the chutzpah to call myself an "Expert", I do know quite a bit about Bicycle Drivetrains, Ergonomics, Special Needs, Vehicular Dynamics and Framebuilding.
I'm so busy with cranks and tools that I'm no longer doing repairs or fabrication.  However I can often recommend someone for the job.
I have a dwindling supply of vintage Sturmey Archer parts.
