midwest roots rule!

so the t.o.c. starts this weekend and rapha is doing a daily update with their own version of each of the stages. here is the trailer for the ride. by far the coolest thing i didn’t do this year but the kids are alright and there is some serious ira ryan bike action in there too.

dropped by the paint shop today and dropped off brian’s cx race bike with an edge fork and also dean’s porteur bike off to get some amazing powder color. should see them back in a couple weeks. if you haven’t seen the bikes that i have gotten back from paint lately, please check them out. i am particularly happy with dan’s porteur bike in the spirit of the cannibal. fierce yet lovable.

things are also shaping up for the bikes to rwanda auction in the spring. the date has been set for may 9th at the google campus in santa cruz, california. we have compiled a good list of items to be auctioned off to benefit btr and help to build more bike shops in rwanda. please attend if you are in the neighborhood.

ride on!

    Unless they have another in Santa Cruz, I’m pretty sure Google is in Mountain View (sounds fussy, but they’re actually ~50 miles apart..one by the ocean, one by the bay).
