I didn’t think I’d be bothered. A summer of illness with less time on the bike than I’d like, an unhealthy diet of booze and pizza not to mention the odd sneaky cigarette… hell no I didn’t want to race Red Hook Crit!

Legendary Philadelphia Builder to Visit B1866

Stephen Bilenky - Master Frame Builder.
Stephen Bilenky has been designing and building beautifully constructed bicycles since 1983. Located in an old warehouse in North Philadelphia; the Bilenky Cycle Works is a workshop full to the brim of over thirty years of bicycle frame building history. They build anything from cargo bikes to racing lightweights, cyclocross bikes, recumbents and tandems, mountain bikes, simple commuter bikes and anything else they or a customer can dream up. Innovative too; they were the first to build a tandem, with S&S couplers allowing it to pack down into two small flight boxes and in the late nineties they started producing the revolutionary ‘Viewpoint’; a semi recumbent tandem that allowed teams with differing abilities and strengths to take to the road for the first time.
