Well we finally did it - we've started an on-line store at Rene Herse Bicycles / Boulder Bicycle. We'll be adding lots of stuff over time, but now we have stuff like Regina Oro track chains, lots of other Regina vintage chains, Cinelli toe straps, Campy Super Record Rear Deraillieurs, and lots lots more. You'll see vintage stuff and Randonneur stuff.

To get to the store, hit our page at http://www.renehersebicycles.com and then follow the links to the store.

The great thing is now you don't need to email back and forth with is to confirm availability. If you can put the item in the shopping cart, then you can buy it! You can pay with paypal or sign in as guest to paypal and use your credit card. The nice thing about that is that we don't ever see your credit card - so there is one less place your number is lurking. That is better for you and better for us since we don't need to think about the security.

Again, we'll be adding lots and lots as we go, but there is a bunch of stuff there already. And we put the Rene Herse T's on the site - but have been blown away by how many we've been selling.
