Race day is fast approaching, so it’s time to start thinking about getting your bike ready for the Rustbucket. That means it’s time for a trip to Hund’s Re-Cycle Factory!
Hund’s, the presenting sponsor of the Rustbucket Races, is owned and operated by Andrew Hund, a Norfolk native and Granby High grad whose bicycle journey began in the 1980’s racing BMX for the Colley Avenue Bike Shop team. You can now find Andrew at 4909 Colley Avenue, twenty-odd blocks north of his old stomping grounds.
As the name of the shop suggests, one of the specialties at Hund’s is bringing vintage bikes back to life, but they have new bikes as well. For example, stop at Hund’s if you want to order a new Surly or All-City, and keep in mind that Hund’s is the only Masi dealer in Hampton Roads.
Hund’s is also great for small-s specialized bikes for riders who are shorter, taller, or heavier. (Andrew built a bike for George Bell, the tallest man in America.) They will also gladly service unusual bikes like recumbents and unicycles.
The shop is open Tuesday through Sunday; call them at 962-2100 to let them know you are ready to get ready for the
