I raced on the Grove Team for a few years. I wanted to share these pictures. They clearly show Bill's attention to quality. I hope you enjoy them. It was a pleasure racing for Bill Grove, we all had a great time.

Great Pics! Thanks for posting them!

Did you race on any of the Aermet tubed frames? I have one with "TEAM 001" stamped on the bottom bracket shell and I'm curious who it might have belonged to.

No I did not race with the Aermet, just the True Temper 4130 Aircraft Cro-Moly Tubing. I cannot help you with the serial number, I have no record of those. I'm glad you enjoyed the pics.

Super pic's! Got any more to share? Forgive my ignorance, but where was the painting done? On site as well?

I believe these photos were taken when the painting was done at another location. He later moved the shop to a bigger location that did have a paint area. Bill did some of the painting but I remember that he had a full time painter that did a lot of the wild splash, fade and cracked effect work. I do not have any other shop pictures, but I do have some photos of the team, my jerseys, t-shirts and other Grove items. I will be posting them later.

Fantastic! Beautiful frames and a very well organised shop judging by from the pictures.

Groovy Cycleworks has posted some great photos of the Centre Hall Grove shop on its blog. The pictures I have posted are the Pleasant Gap shop which was a smaller earlier location.
