Younger Still

Younger Still by Scott T.

This morning, I went through my old photos that I took at random times and it occurred to me that many of our current customers have no idea what Salvagetti looked like when we were much younger.

When we started out, we didn't have new bikes for sale, which often times made people walk in the store and walk right back out. They had heard we were nice people, but weren't sure about the name and what we stood for.

Every single piece of inventory was out where you (and I) could find it. If you didn't see it, we didn't have it. But, surprisingly, we usually did. Pure luck?

Salvagetti started out as Fix My Bike, but moved on to Salvagetti Bicycle Workshop in a unanimous vote of Scott's Wife, Brother and Brain.

It is strange, because I have many photos of this location, but almost none of the *even smaller* one we had before. We were only there for about 3 months before we found a better location (313 W. 11th). And only a little over a year later we moved on to 1234 Speer Blvd.. What a roller coaster ride!

I am here to provide! Sometimes I have nightmares that I am still in that tiny little space. Cold sweats!
