For anyone that watched cycling in the late 80′s, this bike should look familiar. Before Merckx built the team 7-Eleven frames, Landshark and Serotta had built their fair share of “Huffy” team bikes. On a recent group ride in Milwaukee, Peter from COG Magazine found himself cruising next to Tom Schuler, of 7-Eleven fame. This 1987 National Champ still rides his team bike, which is in perfect condition. It’s hard to imagine someone holding onto a bike for that long in this day and age but when you were a part of a legacy, that’s all the reason you need.
Peter was kind enough to send over some amazing photos of this Serotta-built team 7-Eleven. Check out more below.

Snap! Delivery in Brooklyn really started a chain reaction in how bicycle-powered food delivery companies can work. When Alex moved to SF, he spawned TCB Courier and now, in Milwaukee, Kevin and Peter from COG Magazine have started Flavor Cycle. We all know this is far from easy to achieve and I wish these guys the best of luck. If you’re in Milwaukee and work in their delivery zone, make sure you help these guys out! Thanks for the heads Earl!
COG Magazine posted this earlier today and all I could think is how rad it is to see a group of girls all riding different bikes. Every town has a ladies ride and these girls are the Milwaukee Pedal Pushers.
“The video is entirely composed of still photographs shot over two days in the studio and one day on the streets by Peter Diantoni of COG Magazine. Meticulous set up and lighting was required with the hundreds of component changes in the studio, and challenges of lighting and camera position on a moving rider. Special thanks to Milwaukee Bicycle Co. and State Bicycle Co. for donating bikes for the shoot; Ben’s Cycle for providing studio space; and rider Dan Mueller.”
“With a 40mm drop and available in black, white and sliver, the Comet Track Drop bar is at home navigating city traffic or going head to head in match sprints. The Comet track drop handlebar uses 6061 aluminum and is light, durable and strong enough to handle the demands of any rider.
