So we didn’t think that anyone else could really give us the reaction quite like Danny Macaskill does (check out a few of our earlier blog posts on that – Danny Does it Again and Danny’s Latest) but this guy Kriss Kyle pretty much gave us the same effect. Guess it makes sense that Danny was the one to share this with everyone.
Make sure and stick with it past the first 50 seconds. It looks like your typical BMX skate park video, but it is far from it!
So we finally put together a shop kit this year (big thanks to Drew Burke and Castelli Cycling) and had incredible response from you guys on the ordering front. The kits arrived earlier this month, have been picked up by most and are starting to be seen out there in the wild. Some great shots showed up on the social scene, including Instagram and Facebook. Cool to see you guys rocking the kits even as we head into cooler weather.
Ok ladies, we did an update to the women’s kits and have changed them to a new color, Fluo Pink!(Note: it looks purple in the mock up they gave us but trust us when we say it is an awesome fluorescent pink)
And… we heard your feedback and the bottoms will be SHORTS instead of bibshorts.
*UPDATE:This post was yes, an April Fools joke. And a pretty good one, although there were dead giveaways in it that should have tipped you off. Have to say it worked better than we thought and many of you took the bait while others were not to be “fooled.” So while we would love a 10,000 sq ft historic warehouse (which by the way we would NEVER fill with retail – dead giveaway number one), we are not ready to pull the trigger on that just yet. Awesome to see all of the support from you guys though! Hope you all had a great April Fools Day!
We have decided that the time is right and are psyched to announce we will soon be opening a 2nd location. It was a long time in the works and a lot of thought has been put into just what we wanted to do. With our business and the industry in general picking up, we just decided to pull the trigger.
For all you knobby lovers out there, we are starting up the Thursday evening mountain bike rides for this year. We are psyched that the Spring weather has finally arrived and ready to enjoy some awesome rides.
Decided to start posting periodically about just how awesome our customers are. Here is #1.
So we are working with a new customer who is very excited about getting into cycling and is planning on possibly entering a sprint race in September. Now this lady has ridden bicycles when she was younger but is a total beginner at this point. She was referred to us (another reason our customers are awesome) and is looking for us to help determine the right bike for her that also fits within her budget.
“The Ridge is the brand new film from Danny Macaskill… For the first time in one of his films Danny climbs aboard a mountain bike and returns to his native home of the Isle of Skye in Scotland to take on a death-defying ride along the notorious Cuillin Ridgeline.”
This film is by Cut Media and man is it done nicely. We are suckers for this level of cinematography, especially in a location like that. Freakin awesome.
Danny MacAskill once again amazes us with his unbelievable trials skills and more importantly, his ridiculous creativity and ability to and pull off tricks in places most of us would consider unridable. This latest video showcases those talents in an amazing location in Epecuén, Argentina.
