Just sorting a few things out in my office. Well, my dining room that’s a mess. Tripped over my reference from my first “industry” job at Two Wheels Good in Leeds, which I ended up with after my mum rang up John Stevenson to see if there were any Saturday jobs going. There were, he rang me back, and I didn’t find anything out about their conspiracy until last year.
Two Wheels Good was a great environment. A CoOperative, with a frame building workshop on the top floor of the building in Call Lane, Leeds. Andy Morris, one of the partners, patiently assisted my teenage enthusiasm for lathes and brazing, and let me loose on making stems and even frames. Malcolm assisted in teaching me about geometry. And Stevenson was Stevenson.
