This gear is most definitely on topic and very interesting. Bikeville is none other than Via Bicycles in Philadelphia. If you are in the city of brotherly love and can convince the owner to give you a tour of his premises, you will be blown away by the variety of things he has. He has some absolutely wonderful things. His employees are also super helpful and friendly. Its one of the few shops where you can bring any sort of far out bike and there are good chances that they have seen one before. They have bikes from the late 1800's up until recent things. If you do go to visit them, do remember that they are a business, and while they will likely be happy to kvetch with you about vintage bikes, their time is worth money to them.
