The other night I attended the unveiling of the first Jake Barrett bicycle at The Dropout Bike Shop for the Reno Rambler Cycling Club. Built by Jake for his dad as a birthday present, it's a stunner. Just what you'd expect from Barrett and not surprising since he has been working with Roland Della Santa for the last few years honing his skills as a framebuilder. I'll let the pictures do the talking but it's hard not to fall in love with the details, the build, the paint, and those pretty lugs. Just some nice touches all around.
For over 12 Years I wrote the Reno Rambler Blog covering everything from Bicycle Advocacy, Reno Politics, Popular Culture, and my experiences as a long-time cyclist.
