Sometimes I think we are in the wrong business. We LOVE seismometers but our most popular blog post with nearly 16,000 views (some 200+% more popular than our second most popular post) was not about seismology but bicycles! See Tandem bikes.
In his past life Seismo Guy Ángel Rodriguez ran R+E Cycles where he built custom cycles for everyone from his next door neighbor to IRIS staff members.
Today Andy Lockhart of the Volcano Disaster Assistance Program (VDAP) and Rick Benson of IRIS told us that the Mayor of Seattle bet the Mayor of Denver a Rodriguez Bicycle that the Seattle Seahawks will win the Super Bowl.

R+E Cycles has been making custom bicycles for 40 years now. Ángel retired 20 years ago. That is quite the legacy! Building things, whether they be bicycles, seismometers or beer fridges (stay tuned) is just a part of who Ángel is. And making products that survive the test of time, his legacy.
