Trail Maintenance at Six Mile Run: 2 New Bridges

Sunday, April 26th, 2009

Trail Maintenance Six Mile Run Franklin Township New Jersey

Jorba’s April Trail Day at Six Mile Run was successful. About 25 people came out for a hot day in the sun. We built a bridge, rerouted some trail, trimmed some pricker bushes and put in a 30′ length of rollercoaster decking. Thanks to everyone that came out and made the day a success.

Bob Sandor’s Cannondale 29’er

Bob Sandor’s Cannondale 29er

Meet Bob’s new Cannondale 29’er. Bob’s second 29’er is a geared-up, brawny, racing-machine and testament to the 29’ers awesome handling and trail-appeal. You see Bob’s first 29’er was a single-speed and such a blast to ride that when it came time to get his 26″ geared racing bike down and prepare for the racing season he just couldn’t go back to the smaller tires and tighter geometry of the 26″. Since there was no way he was going to compete single-speed he really only had once choice… this beautiful Cannondale 2009 Vintage Moss 29’er with Caffeine Frame Technology. If you’ve never ridden 29″ wheels, we’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, you don’t know what your missing. If you’re in the neighborhood come on by and see what we’ve got in stock, even take one of our demos out for a ride.

Street Riding at Princeton

Street Riding at Princeton

A recent Saturday, after closing shop, the crew went downtown to ride the steps, benches, tables, sidewalks and sometimes even the roads on campus and around town.

Only 3 flats and no injuries or damage to person or property made riding Princeton on a balmy April evening a good time for all.

Forest’s New Cross-Bike

Wednesday, April 22nd, 2009

Meet Halter’s youngest competitive racer, Forest, and his brand spanking new cyclocross bike. Forest has been riding mountain bikes competitively since he was 8 and now at 14 plans to enter his first cross season later this year.


The Giant TCX 2 that Forest rides sports Giant’s all-new superlight ALUXX SL aluminum frame with top-routed cables making it easy to tackle all obstacles no matter the conditions. The stable, compact frame geometry and extra mud clearance will let this baby go where road bikes just can’t cut it.

The TCX 2 also features:
— Shimano Sora 9-speed shifting, Tiagra rear derailleur, ‘cross specific 46/36 gearing
— Crank Brothers Egg Beater pedals, OverDrive fork for precision steering
— Formula hubs/stainless spokes/Alex rim, wheelset with Kenda Small Block Eight tires

But wait…. There’s more. Cross season starts in the fall so until it’s time to hit the mud, Forest will be hitting the road on a set of Vredestein Fortezza SEs. And that’s the magic of the cross frame, change the tires, change the terrain. It’s really like getting two bikes in one.

More info on Giant’s TCX 2 is available on the Giant website: Giant TCX 2
