Clinton over at A Better Cycle just finished up my new rear wheel (the Kogswell will soon have 9 speeds!). I am very happy with it thus far. Like the people who work there, it’s straight and true. Although most of my dealings were with Clinton, everyone who I interacted with there was approachable and informative.

A Better Cycle is a fairly small worker-owned shop located here in our very own SE Portland (23rd/Division). They specialize in good service and have a small selection of, used parts and pre-owned bicycles. They also carry an array of new, mostly commuter-based (read: strong, functional and affordable) parts and accessories. Although they don’t reserve a lot of room on their showroom floor for new parts, they can order most anything you need if you just ask.

One notable item that just arrived at their shop is the Sturmey Archer 3speed fixed hub. Yes, 3 speeds, all fixed. These are all brand new hubs, not NOS. Sounds like they are going to build one or two up for test rides. If that sounds interesting at all to you I would definitely recommend heading over to A Better Cycle and checking one out in person.
