Hi Pete! I saw someone with a Crescent bike the other day and thought "What's Pete up to?" Are you still in Greece? Maybe you could update your profile page here and throw up some pix of the current bike, best veggie recipes and your digs. Inquiring minds...you know! Hope all is well....Mike
Hey there, Pete! Time for an update to your Zoobird page. Location, current bike, stories to tell...I've seen some cool Crescents, been on a medical field trip (Yucatan, to be exact) and heard music all that's reminded me of Senor Korhonen. RSVP! /michael
Pete! Good to see you're part of Music, Travelin' and Pepper Zoo. I am out the door to Bolivia! Zoobird bud Lamine Ba will be my host at 14,000 feet about this time tomorrow. Time for an update from My Korhonen. How is life in beautiful, snowy Scandinavia? Music news? Adventures with cuisine? Been anywhere interesting? How about biking? I look forward to reading your thoughts and seeing some photos, and perhaps listening to some music from your band. All the best, Mike
Pete, I love your site! How did you make it look so professional. I too am into music. I can't imagine life without it. I love your way of thinking and ideas. I'd like to invite you to be my friend and to join my new group, Environmental Zoo where you can express your concerns, solutions, ideas, or anything else you'd like to share. I would also like to invite you to join in the discussion on the environment which I recently started. See you there?
Thanks, Pete. The Alexander Technique...is it more for physical therapy or for drumming? This could make for a discussion in the Music Zoo entitled "Alexander Technique for Musicians." Sounds like you take a Zen approach to life. Nice.
Pete, Can you please elaborate on your Alexander Techniques work. What led you to it and how do you like it? How about an update on your Crescent bike restoration. And, I'd be interested to hear about your music background. Is your work driven by political expression more or less than the music itself?
Thanks man! I keep it simple and sell through only one shop (Track Star NYC) or direct from me.
I do ship though.
I dig your conversion BTW. I roll a track bike around the city for pretty much every thing. Just bolt on the wheels and add some air. Works even in the rain.
My single speed Atala Giro D'Italia from Milan, early 1970s. I purchased this from my alexander techniques teacher as he had the bike just standing in his basement and I needed a ride. He had gotten it from London about 5-6 years earlier.
First idea was to make it a normal geared city bike, but since I was not able to find a decent derailleur to the back, the boys in "Kumiluoti" (Rubber bullet) here in Helsinki converted it to a single speed monster.
