Sharpening our skills

Thursday, February 5th, 2009

In January Jason an Chris spent two days in Philly at the Park Tool Bike Summit.   They spent some serious time learning some important new skills from:

  • SRAM
  • Rock Shox
  • Hayes
  • Shimano
  • Park Tool
  • Fox

Here is a writeup from

Mountain Bike Magazine.

Surly -Do it all Cross Check.

Thursday, February 5th, 2009

Here is Tom’s Surly Cross check.  This bike is equally at home on the race course or kitted out with fenders as a commuter bike.  The Surly is hard to beat for the money.  Tom proves just how versitle this bike can be. This steel frame will never be a super light, but that is not the point.

It is also worth noting that Surly has come up with a colapsable version called the “Travelers Check”:

Niner – 2009 AIR Nine

Wednesday, February 4th, 2009

Here is a Scandium Air Nine that we just built up for a new regular customer.   This is his “2nd” bike.  Which is to say that he has 2 really nice bikes. Both of which are 29″ wheeled.

The Blue is new of 09′.  YES it GLOWS IN THE DARK!!

Fox F29er fork, Sram, Stans.. etc.  Killer bike.

YES, WE LOVE NINER BIKES:

2009 Cannondale F29er One

Wednesday, February 4th, 2009

For 2009 we will be stocking Cannondale’s top end 29er hardtail.  This bike is 24.03 LBS out of the box.  Not bad for a 29er.

Some cool things about this bike:


  • Stans Rims.  Tubeless 29er at LAST!
  • XT Servowave Discs.  These will stop you in a hurry
  • BB 30 Cranks!!  Stiff AND Light
  • XT Rapid fire (i think they work better than XTR)
  • 24 lbs.

Not so cool in my book is the insanely low profile Conti tires.  These are just bigger than the tires on my cross bike.  This is a mt bike is it not??  I am sure this is a weight thing but c’mon!  The puke green is love it or hate it.  We hope folks love it as it is the only color option..

Salsa – El Mariachi SS or Geared

Wednesday, February 4th, 2009
Chris loves him some SALSA!

Chris loves him some SALSA!

For 2009 we have made a bigger splash with SALSA cycles.  We have been on a heavy 29er kick and these guys are into it.

This sweet red frame is for our good friend Walt.  The color is so sweet.

The neat thing about this 29er is it’s ability to easily be run as a SS or geared bike.
