Dear “gang,” as Ez used to say,
Thank you for your interest and patience as we’ve felt our way through the process of finding new homes for Ezra’s tools and machines – a process that took a course of its own after starting off here.
After years of watching Ez carefully and passionately set up and use his shop, it has been extremely sad, to say the least, to see it taken apart. But, with lots of help (especially from Sam and Rosko), parts of it are now being or are soon be used in the brilliant shops of Seth Rosko, Dale Lord (of Recycle-A-Bicycle and Crooked Hill Cycles, coming soon), Eric Monasterio (builder of beautiful custom racks and more), Jamie Swan, Benjamin, Harlem Built, Samuel D. Newman, Caldwell Sport, and others. Contents from the bike room, for those of you who knew of it, have also been spread far and wide, mostly via Recycle-A-Bicycle, and with help from Eric, Dale, Caroline Samponaro, and Todd Miller.
For anyone still interested in wood, metal, and bike stuff, please stay tuned. A good deal is gone or spoken for, but plenty remains, which we’ll try to post here soon. If you’ve written to Sam or me about particular items and haven’t heard back, please forgive and try again if you like. I’m sorry we aren’t better organized, but it’s a lot to keep track of.
For anyone interested in photo equipment, please see below for a list of items and prices (big thanks to Sam and Matthew for your help with this). If you have any questions or are ready to purchase, please email me at email@example.com. Arrangements for payment can be made in person or via Paypal. .
Thank you again to everyone who has helped (including Megan Ann, web-maven) and followed along.
