 … Jane Halsey, our persistent reporter on the Bamboo Bike Studio’s DIY weekend workshops (see The Talk, January), finally completed her own bicycle, after months of squeezing hours here and there out of a hectic schedule.

“Hardly anybody takes that long,” she says, “but I live right down the block. When people fly in to do it—from as far away as Thailand—they have to finish in three days.” She rode it to work next morning, and it neither blew up nor fell apart. “It’s a real bike,” she gloats. “It’s gorgeous. It’s amazing. I did it—with a little help from my BBS friends. Thanks, Justin!”
