Portland, OR: Velo Cult Visits Hufnagel Cycles

One of the larger and more charismatic shops I visited belonged to Jordan Hufnagel of Hufnagel cycles. He rents out sections of his workspace (which is huge) to various craftsmen including a bag maker (Lemolo), a tattoo machine builder and a motorcycle builder. You get the strong feeling of a co-op in this workshop and you can really see creativity, style and motivation being swapped within this shop. I was pleasantly surprised to see that Jordan is making more Townie/Touring/Commuter bikes with vintage style and modern components. Hufnagel has a really unique style and I hope to see more like the bike he built for Mike Giant in the photos below.
