|Photo of Gary in Arizona on his first bike ride. Visiting friends...|
Pops flew down to Arizona to visit some old college friends. He's meeting with buddies Bill and Bob to explore all that our 48th state has to offer. Arizona is the sixth largest and the 15th most populous of the 50 states. Its capital and largest city is Phoenix. Arizona is one of the Four Corners states. It has borders with New Mexico, Utah, Nevada, California, and Mexico, and one point in common with the southwestern corner of Colorado. Arizona's border with Mexico is 389 miles (626 km) long, on the northern border of the Mexican states of Sonora and Baja California. It will be interesting to see and hear what Gary thinks about this trip. Wish him well as this is a big step moving forward in his life without Judee by his side. As you might imagine she is still hugely missed by all of us.
New Winter Hours - November 1st to March 1st.

Stop on in Halloween weekend to check out some crazy deals on all things in stock and also take a look at the glorious works of Paul Reardon of Blue Steel Bike...he's the builder behind the beauty! Tons of deals to be had with much of the merchandise 25% to 50% off! While you are here, see some great works from BSB! World Cup Coffee is selling their remaining bottled beers for $2.00 apiece and did I mention we'll have some brats! Stop in and stick around to chew the fat on all things BIKES!! Going to be a fine weekend for deals on wheels and hey, why not get started on your new custom dream bike...BSM and BBS can make it happen!!!
|Closer look on the track bike...|

|Gravel Grinder extraordinaire...|
The bike is complete! I got it built up and here are the 1st photos of my new machine...thanks Paul! Blue Steel Bike's and Brone's Bike Shop are hosting a showing of some of Paul's bikes this coming weekend. Stop in Halloween and see some SCARY COOL hand built machines...maybe even get the wheels spinning on your new custom bicycle!?! Hand built one at a time in LaCrosse, WI!!
We sell a fair amount of this type of bicycle from many quality manufacturers so I had plenty to choose from. However, I've seen some of the quality work Paul at Blue Steel Bike (check him out on FB) has been turning out recently so I asked him to build me a custom frame. Here are some early shots of the work he's been doing. I plan to christen the new machine with a 100 mile gravel ride as soon as we get it built....stay tuned! (Going to have a showing of Paul's work Halloween Weekend...you and all your friends and family are invited!)

Look who got a chance to snap a groupie with Adam and Teresa Hanson...none other than newly crowned World Road Race Champion - Peter Sagan!
