Buildblog: The Modern List Colorado

The well traveled folks over at BuildLLC have added a second helping to the fair cities of Denver & Boulder to their latest "Modern List Colorado".

They even mention Chocolate Spokes, who we happened to do a post on due to a recent article in the Denver Post.
from Buildblog's post: The Modern List Colorado

Good to know that our fair state is catching the attention of other savvy designers from around the nation!

From Architect to Chocolate Spokes

A local newspaper profile on Gregory Crichlow--former architect, now custom bike craftsman... slash natural chocolate salesman.

Crichlow is an architect by trade, but always had an interest in cycling. He said that when the economy slowed down, he decided to try his hand at what was his retirement dream. He opened the shop in late 2011 and stopped driving in December that year, riding his bike around everywhere. Crichlow said he wears a bow tie every day — even though he does some dirty work — because he saw an old picture of his grandfather wearing a suit and wanted to bring a professional level to the shop.

A path less traveled.

We've been by Gregory's shop a few times, but haven't had the chance to stop in.  Now, we'll make sure it's on our list of pit stops.
