Speaking of A-train Cycles Mar 5, 2014

A-Train-1

While we were visiting Peacock Groove in Minneapolis, I popped over to see Alex at A-train‘s space, which is on the same floor as Peacock and other builders. While he wasn’t working on an A-train frameset (he was retrofitting a road bike with belt drive rockers), I got to check out his space and shoot a few photos. It’s not much, but hopefully next time I’ll get to photograph Alex working on some of his wonderful brazing.

Check out a few more below.

A-Train-2

Every builder, no matter who they are, began by brazing scrap tubes together. Here’s Alex’s bucket of blood…

    I used to work with Alex back when I was in high school. It’s great to see that he has made a name for himself in the cycling industry.
