A look inside GearJunkie Headquarters

GearJunkie HQ in Minneapolis, Minn., is home to quite the assortment of stuff. We run editorial and business operations out of the space, which is a converted lumber mill building in Minneapolis’ Uptown neighborhood. A garage door opens from the high-ceiling space to a patio that sits on the city’s famous Greenway Bike trail. Lunchtime runs and bike commuting to work are staples with the staff. Here’s a quick photo rundown of our 20 favorite (some weird) items in the place, all collected over 10 years of GearJunkie operation and from far corners of the world. Swing by sometime if you’re biking past us on the Greenway trail. —Patrick Murphy
