Meet the Makers, Signature Cycles 20130427 - photo - Rob Vandermark

From left to right profiles: Ben Serotta, Paul Levine, Bob Parlee, and Nick.
I’m the one taking the photo. Honest, I was there.

I – and John L. and Karl B. of Seven Cycles – were at Signature Cycles‘ “Meet the Makers” event today.  It

The “Makers” were Bob Parlee of Parlee Cycles, Ben Serotta of Serotta Cycles, Nick of Guru Bicycles, and me.  Paul Levine of Signature hosted some prepared questions and then opened up the floor for questions.  People asked some great questions.  And I heard some interesting answers.  Maybe I’ll try to write down some of my recollections.  Someone was filming the event but I doubt it’ll end up online.

It’s always good to see Bob Parlee; he’s honest and unfiltered.  Ben always has interesting stories.  This was the first time I’d met Nick of Guru; he was a really nice guy, smart, and did well sitting next to Ben Serotta and Bob Parlee.

The drive out and back was the best part because I got to listen to great music and talk about some seminal groups from my youth.  I was feeling a bit old.  Maybe it’s just the lack of sleep.
