Well, after many months of hard work our new space is finally finished. We are all moved in and fully operational. The dust has settled, been swept up and disposed of. Total production downtime: 1 week.
How is this possible? People is how… One person in particular, but also a community of like minded individuals spanning many generations, fathers working alongside sons, husbands and wives, dearest friends and professionals from a variety of disciplines, lending their minds and hands. We are truly humbled by the raw mental and physical horsepower generated by this, our community.
The one person in particular is Alessandra Mondolfi, she almost single-handedly, made our dreams come true. From concept to reality she made this space. Each element, every sightline and detail were thought out and purposely built from scratch.
The result is a true labor of love. It is the fruition of endless late nights, barren fridges, tested nerves and sore muscles. But… when those lights come on in the morning, the machines start humming and some of the finest bicycles we have ever made in our lives start flowing smoothly through the space, we know it was all worth it.
So… through the lens of local photographer Heather McGrath, we invite you along for a photographic tour of the new space.
Thanks to all that helped make our dream a reality.
