Inside Brooklyn Machine Works
In 1997 I read a small piece on a company from Brooklyn, New York in an issue of Dirt Magazine. The company was called Brooklyn Machine Works. Before BMW was formed, it was just two guys, "Doc" (who gets his nick name from his past profession as a practicing MD) and Joe Avedesian. They were making pedals and rim brakes because they were fed up with breaking the parts they were using. Soon, they found themselves making pedals and brakes as a hobby, and for friends. This was their claim to fame. Alot of people became interested in what they were doing and the demand for their products blossomed, and there it began.
