Video: GoPro Films The Birth Of A Bike

This video was sent in to us by Gordon Yeager, owner of the Velo Hangar. He said GoPro wanted to film a bike build using their new Hero3+ camera and asked him if he’d let them film it. The bike: 2014 Specialized SL4, components: Shimano Dura Ace 9000 mechanical. BTW, Gordon’s shop video was a runner up to last spring’s Bikerumor Bike Shop Video Challenge.

Cool video and an awesome shop! Gordon not only builds bikes, but also serves some of the best espresso in the area.

He sure has some nice tools in that shop.

Great vid! Who ever thought of putting a go pro on a torque wrench?! Top notch work done there. It’s all in the details. Velo Hangar has a reputation for craftsmanship.

While there is no doubt that Gordon will hand over a perfectly tuned bike all the time, it is not the shop’s greatest virtue. It is the artisan cafe drinks and the great Velo Hangar on-and-off the bike clothing that sets it apart from any other shop within 500 miles of San Diego. Speaking of which, is that vest available for purchase?

Yes the local coffee is great, and the those Squadra kits are even better!
