Anyone who attended our last Salon Series can verify this statement: Erik Noren brought the house down. Noren, a custom bike builder and owner of Peacock Groove Cycles, talked about his background, gave his candid and colorful opinions about the state of custom-bike building in America, and shared wonderful stories about the importance of bicycles to people and communities. He even brought by a few bikes for people to marvel at.

The ACC staff sat down with Erik Noren before the beginning of the Salon to ask him a few questions about his craft.

Presented by the American Craft Council, the Library Salon Series is a series of free public presentations exploring craft, making, and art.

This activity was made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a Minnesota State Arts Board Operating Support grant, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
