It's kind of creepy. Everywhere I live, a UBI starts up. I've got about 25 years worth of life down in Ashland, then we moved up here,,, just to escape from UBI. We didn't let them know where we had escaped too, but they've found us !
Matter of fact, I remember that I had a good time yakking with Jerry Jacobson when he came down to take the classes there. Jerry (Jake) was the Prez of the OHPV during the late '80s and early '90s, he was the director of the IHPSC world championships that were held at PIR in '90. I also remember taking his SWB that he had designed and built around the parking lot for a little spin, it was his "Jerry Rig". Funny how it all ties together.
I didn't take any classes out at United Bicycle Institute ( it's like everything else, it's right in your back yard and what do you do?) but I was for sure very aware of them, along with United Bicycle Parts and United Bicycle Tool. It was one big united bicycle brain pool! Naw, I'd just talk to them about stuff in general, get the scoop. And rent their fancy little special french crank remover tool for my goofy threading on my Peugeot's (early '70s) Stronglight cranks. What a PITA !
UBI, come get me!
