Over the past year or so, I’ve become pretty good friends with Adam Eldridge of Stanridge Speed, so it was nice to stop in and see his shop while I was in Columbus visiting Lauren’s family. To call his facilities small and intimate is an understatement. His shop is tucked away inside a community work space. A giant, 8,000sqft warehouse nestled inside a recently renovated park. He has no heat and his walls are made from corrugated metal.
Through the flickering florescent lighting, he mitres, brazes, finishes and paints his bicycle frames before sending them out all over the world. While his Highstreet may be the most popular frame, his passion is falling into cross bikes and road bikes. He likes frames that require problem solving… I documented his facilities the best I could with my 5D and my Hasselblad, which proved to be no easy task. But I feel it really captures the spirit of Stanridge Speed.
