happy friday folks ! Anyone get any night rides in during the past couple of nights ???? If so, count me as being one of the jealous because here in Hamilton the sky was absolutely clear and the moon was extremelly bright, would have been just perfect night ride conditions. On the dirt roads last night i didn't need a light so i just plugged away at the pedals and took in the cool, crisp evening air with the aid of moon ray. Speaking of lights ..... anyone seen the LED Trinewt from Niterider ? If i were to purchase a new light right now i'd suppose it'd be the one to consider.
Thanks Rick for dropping of the new music today.... some ol' classics from Neil Young (massey hall 71'), goodness his voice sounds so young. I still need to pick up the Chrome Dreams II album, and i'd suggest you do the same if you like Neil.
Finally.....our Felt rep, Zach stopped into the shop today and we sat around and b-s'd about bikes for about 3 hours. Felt's bikes look outstanding for the 08' season and we're stoked to be selling their bikes. Their entire line looks to be very solid. They've added upon the full suspension line and added two more series of bikes....the 5.7" travel Compulsion line and the 6.5" travel Redemption line. Personally, the bike that i'd like to purchase from them this year....the XCity , which is a sweet little Shimano 8spd internal geared commuter or errand type bike that retails for $799. I just like the clean lines and simplistic looks of it and will have for myself soon enough. Zach also has with him some killer road bike eye candy, a Pinarello FP5 that retails for $3200.....for the money it looked very well equipped and we'll be considering adding pinarello to our line of bikes.
Thanks for stopping out Zach !
Carli over at Mavic also stopped out this past week and had more goodness stuffed into the back of her Volvo then should be allowed. Every wheel bag was better than the next and by the time that she left the shop we needed mops to wipe up the excess drool left on the floor. Thanks for coming on out Carli and for spreading the mavic goodness.
all for now, have a fantastic weekend folks !

kind of a silly name for a CX race, but still i knew it would be an excellent event so i loaded up the kids, my good pal Rick and his son too as we headed up to Missoula on saturday night for the second annual cx race hosted by the U of M and under the lights of the Missoula Osprey baseball field. You couldn't ask for better conditions than the rain and 38d temps that we've been having for the past few days and it made for muddy and very slippery conditions come race time, perfect CX conditions. You can read up on Shauns blog for a better race recap than i could provide. Thanks Shaun for the fantastic evening entertainment !

the Turner Highlines are starting to ship, we waited in a long line to recieve ours and it was well worth the wait. We've already spent the entire morning pouring over the details. Just so many pass over, such detail. Turner really created a beautiful 7.1" travel, 10.65 pound frame.
intricate cnc'd detail, a 12 X 150 rear axle...check out the built in derailleur hanger.
infamous Turner bushing design and also grease injectable.
