< Norman Hellman will talk on the subject of Tom Avenia's bike shop and Frejus. >

please take copious notes and write a detailed report. i bought my first bike, a frejus tour de france, (tour day france if bob roll is lurking), at tom avenia's. i spent a lot of time in harlem at his shop. that was in the 1970 or so. please, please tell some good stories, like how he preferred to fix bikes upside down. the bikes were inverted, not him. e-RICHIE
