Part owner of Grove Street Bicycles, Rodney Morweiser, has been riding and fixing bikes longer than I’ve been alive. So, I figured I would shed some light on what he is riding these days. Check it out after the jump. Beware: the paint job might bring back acid flashbacks.
Also, the pictures are of terrible quality, I don’t have a camera anymore so I used my phone.
