Although we will dearly miss him in the shop, we are even more excited for the adventure he has taken on. This is his...

Honeymoon Tour part I September 26 2014

BAM! It fired – almost gunshot quality, and I rolled to a slow stop… only 30 yards from the front door. Its always good to clear out the cobwebs of nearly broken bike parts before getting too far from home. We were lucky this time. We could have been delayed a whole day if this had happened a few hours later and farther from help. On Tuesday night I inspected the...

Feb 22nd... where did January go? February 22 2014

We’ve taken a long break from being online. And rightfully so - it has been a super busy last few months.  Since the holidays, orders have picked up and we’ve been busy in the shop getting product out the door… And of course skiing! We’ve had excellent conditions in Colorado thus far.  We are solidly above average snowpack, currently at 115% - 130% which makes both for great skiing now,...
