Cycles Alex Singer.

I put this up on the scugliafab blog but figured y'all might like to see this too.
Last week I took the Metro to Levallois Perret to visit Alex Singer Cycles just outside the peripherique of Paris. They've been building bikes for three generations since 1936. From what I understand the shop employs the builder, Olivier Sucain, and one young apprentice. Olivier is the son of builder Ernest Sucain who acquired the business from his uncle in 1964. Sorry about the quality of these photos. They were taken with my iPhone.

I'll take the one with the amazing derailluer hanger.



Spell check is telling me I spelled that wrong, lucky I know I'm right.
