This was a merge of ideas. Speey's/Mr. T's was going out of business because of Old Dominion University's buy out of the surrounding property. During the same time period Ross Shafer sold Salsa Cycles to Quality Bicycle Products. "The times, they are a changin", I unintentionally chose a QBP chainring as the model for the one tattooed on my arm. Ironic?
Anyway, Thanks to Jason Camfiord at Honky Tonk Tattoo this cover up still looks great after seven years.
