new bike taken home an old friend.

We had a customer come in and after much hoopla we discerned he had a damaged head tube. Well as you might suspect a bad head tube on a bike with an extra cycle could be a scary thing with the kind of loads one can haul. After a little discussion we set him up with a new marin muirwoods. i switched out the extra cycle and then loaded up his old friend into the extra cycle to take home.

the queen of the classics

the hell of the north is this sunday. paris-roubaix is simply the toughest road race ever and the the crown jewel of the cobbled classics. 260km of wheel-crushing, frame snapping punishment at 100% full speed. it looks like there might even be live coverage here, so grab some frites and some good beer and scope it out. or if you really want to get a feel for it you could throw your bike on the trainer and have your friends alternately hit you with a hose, fistfulls of mud and pound on your back while you sprint as hard as you can for a couple of hours.
the photo is of sean kelly, because he's the man.
