For those in San Francisco: six-day great Oscar Juner passed away at 88 on Thanksgiving Day. Memorial services were held yesterday, but American Cyclery hosts its annual "Oscar Appreciation Day" today (monday the 29th) at 4p.m. Drop by if you're in the neighborhood to remember Oscar, a gruff but secretly kind guy who founded American in 1941.
