Biketinkers Union - if you want to join, you know who you are. Amateur tinkerers and professional bike mechanics are equally welcome. All that's required is a desire to customize or improve your bicycles, and an inability to leave well enough alone.

This is a fairly large and detailed patch in a 1930s "union" style. The graphic is an homage to Sheldon Brown, his spirit, and his eagle, Igor. Sheldon was a big influence on my biking life, my fixed gear bikes, my weird drivetrains, my engagement with other online bike nerds. He is missed by many, not just me. I was at Bruce Gordon's Swap Meet (and ride) this year, trading patches with some folks from Sacramento, when one of them looks at the Biketinker patch, looks at it again, and jumps up and hugs me. "Sheldon Brown! I wouldn't be here if it wasn't for Sheldon Brown!" I hugged him back, "Me too, brother."
