While in Brooklyn I made a point to check out Brooklyn Machine Works workshop. I have long been a fan of BMW, rode a Gangsta track, and currently own a Park Bike frame which is not yet built up. BMW is something of a legend in the bike industry, as they have always done things their way, and the fact that they create and manufacture downhill bikes and linkages in the USA is nothing short of amazing given the logistics of doing so.
I have spoken with Joe, the owner, many times and he has always been gracious and kind. I was stoked to finally put a face to the voice and see their shop.
Through the shop door
I believe Joe indicated that this was one of the first Brooklyn BMX bikes
I got hooked up with some new kicks (thanks Joe, you saved my life). More on this later after I put some more time in on them
One of the raddest things in the shop is this 20" wheeled dual sus downhill bike that belongs to Joe's son
He must be luckiest kid in the world.
Crazy long bike that takes two people to ride
one to steer and one to pedal. the driver sits side saddle on the top tube

I like the sunglasses on the butt
