Default A Great Article in New York Times about vintage bike collectors

http://www.nytimes.com/2011/09/18/ny...-the-wall.html

I read this article and thought this is just like me except a house (not apartment) full of old bikes & frames!

You may know the guy Noah from this article as Bushpig on this forum. Good Stuff!

Default Framing a frame

On this note... does anyone have any examples of how they or others have displayed frames as art? I have a Yo! that I have ridden since high school and now want to get it painted re-decal'ed and frame it up. I now have a new Fat on the way that will become my riding bike (thanks Doug).

I've always got a bike displayed in my front entryway. It's just a piece of 90 degree trim with a lag bolt in the wall that I run a toe-strap through.

Holy crap my windows are dirty!
