A bike shop, like most businesses, provides goods and services for payment. Usually cash money. But sometimes we get paid in beer. Or organic vegetables.

Or a Gogol Bordello concert. Mike Ward and his moustache stopped in the shop yesterday on his Nice Bike looking for a good 2 hour plus road loop around Iowa City. So we busted out the maps and sent him on his way down around Sharon Center way where he could check out some quiet roads and maybe see a horse and buggy or three. In return he put us on the list for their show at Blue Moose. Thanks Mike, it was a sweaty blast!
