The construction is wrapping up, let’s move on shall we?

Here is what we look like now. If a parked car is ever blocking our front door again, we are having it towed.

We built up this SOMA San Marcos. No need to go into the details when your bike looks this good but it’s Campy, Brooks and awesome all over!

Here it is again, and a bit of our new landscaping out front also. Just a beautiful bike! We also got new shop clothing in. It’s a big old box full so if you are looking for some new duds come try us on for size.

First up, our great BIG Stupid Construction SALE will continue through closing time this Saturday! 10% off all new bikes, take another 10% off bikes already on sale! So yes, the construction is almost done, the building is looking great and things are returning to normal. Much thanks to all of you who braved the noise dust mud and such to wade in here and see us!

So what have we been up to behind the scenes? Well, we have brought in a couple of new bikes from Marin that are sure to please most bike commuting needs. The Muirwoods 29’er is basically a steel frame mountain bike built for the streets. 3×8 drivetrain, disc brakes, locking skewers for the wheels and saddle and reflective decals galore. The Hamilton 29’er is the same chassis but with rim brakes and a 1×7 drivetrain for simplicity and easy cheap maintenance.

When we build the bikes we recycle the boxes by bike, always! Speaking of bikes, again, we are now Selle Anatomica dealers and have we the demo saddles to prove it!

There is kind of a line already to try a demo, but if you want to get on one give us a call and we can get you on the list. These made in the USA saddles have quite the comfortable reputation and so far have gotten good reviews from the few people we have sent them out under. Sadly demand has been so high we have not yet gotten to demo ourselves!

We also built another really nice generator system that was picked up so fast by the new owner we did not even have time to snap a picture of the finished project, so here are a couple of the parts.

30¢ Squad Jersey

Last new thing, our updated shop clothing is shipping to us this week! Jerseys and shorts this time, might see them by the weekend, early next week for sure! And just so you don’t think we are going all NEW on you, we got some used bikes ready and they are up on the USED BIKES page now.

Okay folks, while they are putting the finishing touches on the removal of my sanity, and getting ready to pour new concrete out front while they are at it, so we are going to have a sale to try and entice you to come visit us! So this week all new in stock bikes are 10% off, and you can take another 10% off the new bikes we already have on sale.

The local 1% option sales tax just expired, too, so push through that construction to buy a sale bike and pay less sales tax! It’s win/win except for all the dust.
