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

I might need to borrow your expresso maker/mug as a prop for an upcoming hipster biking film.

Cool place to work!

A Trek Light Gear hammock appears to be missing – no workplace is complete without an office hammock! Let me know if you need one. :)

Looks pretty cool, however the only thing that is missing from your dog is a CHEW PROOF DOG LEASH and COLLAR from Chew Proof Technologies!!!

Check ‘em out if you get a spare moment between runs@


Cheers and Beers from your friends at CPT!

Such a cool office!!

Wish MY office looked like that instead of the fluorescent-lit cube farm that is is. But which one of you is tall enough to use that ice axe?? And I have to show my wife that busted pedal; she runs Eggbearters on her mtn and road bikes. Hmmm…

Eggbeater pedals… those were used HARD for 8 years and all around the world before they broke. @Seth… send a hammock to test and we’ll string it up.

I frequently bike the Greenway as part of my commute, but don’t know which part of it is your front door … if I knew, I’d probably stop in to say “Hi” to Mo — and anybody else who happened to be around!

Your space is beautiful! Can I hang out with you guys!?
