Milk was a bad choice

Got to love the code Orange ozone days for a road ride. 8 of us still pumped out 27 miles pretty dang fast and none of us had milk before so all was good.

Friday night the 1st is the local crit race in town so if you are in the area swing by the shop and hang out in front with us. ( its also Pony Boy's Birthday so we will have some special puppy things for him...or at least I will)

We have built Jeff's prototype Mountain Goat Route 29 FS and he is going to take it to DuPont this Sunday to try everything out. We will then strip her down when we get back and make Jeff take her to paint and get some nice colors. My Route 29 SS is almost ready to ride as well and I am going to take it to DuPont as well. David from the Pisgah Area SORBA is hoping to meet us up there to show us some cool routes for our Cackalacky Sunday ride.

Other than that the shop is running pretty normal. Lots of bikes going out the doors with happy owners. I think that people are really understanding that waiting for a great deal on a 2008 just isn't likely when 2009s are sitting right next to them with exact spec and $50-100 price increases on virtually every model(somehow a couple bikes are escaping this)

We are also seeing(like every other shop in the US) a bunch of customers bringing out their older rides and having us tune and "commuterize" them. Bags and racks are hard to get right now but we have a pretty good stock and do have a new one coming in tomorrow that I think will be great for lots of our customers.
