Aside from my Montgomery Ward catalogs, my principal portal to shopping from the past is the internet archive’s Wayback Machine. Lately, I’ve been browsing the web pages of Momovelo, a favorite, early oughts mail order bike company out of SF. Momovelo was known for their sleek, custom city bikes. Most of the Momo bikes were designed with front racks, swept back bars and leather Brooks saddles. Most of the bikes show a heavy debt to Rivendell Bicycle Works. While I never bought a bike from Momo, I did catch and release a number of curated accessories including Swedish snow goggles, a 100 % wool Royal Mail sweater and a Dutch vinyl game bags. Here is a time capsule view of what you forgot to buy in June 2004.
