Vendors that carry the Flying Pigeon are a rarity, so when an IMPORTER opens up in my own back yard I have to make note of it.
Nathan Einschlag of NYC Flying Pigeon has a bike he wants to sell you! Nathan lived in China for 2 years so he KNOWS Flying Pigeon. He's also a dyed in the wool New Yorker, so he KNOWs what the market wants and it's not what you might expect.
Sure, there he offers the "Dutch" type roadster so popular right now in New York, but gone are the brake rods and cotters. The gear is much more modern and reliable. Calipers will provice the stopping power in the wet NYC weather.
And if I do say so, the step through version is particularly attractive.
He's also offering an FP track bike, inspired no doubt by the ongoing Fixie craze. And as we know from previous posts, the Flying Pigeon makes an excellent basis for customization. These fixie bikes should be doubly so. Looks tasty.
Best of luck to Nathan in his new endeavor. May the Pigeon Fly High!
