Shop Visit Freewheel Bike MPLS

Last week I had the opportunity to swing by Freewheel on the West Bank in Minneapolis to do a clinic for their employees and shoot some photos of the store.

Freewheel holds a special place in my heart as it was the first place I got hired on after moving to Minneapolis and was effectively the start of my career in the bicycle world.  Without Freewheel hiring me as a seasonal bike assembly, who the hell knows where I'd be now.  Probably some high paying corporate job with a house in the 'burbs (yeah right)

Anyway, the shop was started as a coop back in the late 70's, and while no longer a cooperative has remained an institution in the Minneapolis bike scene.  When they picked up the AC line this Spring, I was super stoked as it was a bit of a homecoming for this prodigal son.

Thanks to Stephen and Jake for having me!
