Nestled next to the train tracks off East Fifth, a little wooden shop quivers in the shadows of the impending lofts that are a part of the yuppification, rather, revitalization , of the Eastside. The East Side Pedal Pushers have been quietly fixing the hard-ridden wheels and steadily pumped derailers of Austin's Eastsiders for about a year and a half now, steadily building a dedicated clientele who wouldn't dream of taking their business elsewhere. It is the quiet dedication of Lee Gresham, the sole proprietor (after the amicable departure of business partner Heather Baade), that offers all doubters/haters/moneymakers proof that the true vitality of the Eastside has always been the residents themselves.
