Portland, OR: Velo Cult Visits Belladonna

Another shop I visited in Portland was the workspace of Mark Simmons of Belladonna Cycles. Mark had a refreshingly simple approach to frame building. Simply put, he builds bikes to be ridden, not babied and hung on a wall. His workshop is a small self-built garage that is organized and works perfectly for him. He explained to me that using the torch in the winter heats up his small shop pretty quickly. Mark is a super nice, down to earth guy and I look forward to hanging out with him next time i’m in Portland.
