Yes! whenever bicycles are broken, or menaced by international communism, Bicycle Repair Man is ready!

My dad picked up a few bikes in his travels. One of them is a beat-up BRC, which has been through the recycler shop at least once - a good example of the state of the art in the early 90s, with U-brakes and flashy brand names (Exage! Hyper-drive!) but nothing really special.

The other bike IS something special - a pre-Kona era Kona. It's a Cascade Fire Mountain, designed by Joe Murray, made in Taiwan - with some cromoly tubes and bottom-of-the-barrel components.

But, it's a Fire Mountain, and we are going to restore it (using guts from the BRC) out of respect for its stolen brethren.
