Beautiful weather we are enjoying right now, which means a busy bike shop. Not to bore you with the details, but we have been repairing buying selling repairing upgrading and even downgrading bikes as fast as we can and trying to get out and enjoy the season on our two wheelers as well. The 30¢ Squad has been out on the roads and trails with appearances at the Gran Gable, Colesburg 40, Sugar Bottom Scramble, Chequamegon 40 and Culinary Ride just this month – whew!

We could explain to you the boring details of how we marked ALL our in stock MASI 2013 road bikes down 10% or even tell you about the exciting preseason helmet orders we are working on but there is simply too much so allow us to sum up instead. Here we go then –

The good, the bad, and the beautiful

Good:

This Schwinn Voyager was made in Japan and left for dead in a garage in Illinois but it is getting back on the road with some new tires a chain and freewheel. Lots of miles still ahead for that lugged 4130 cromo frame.

Bad:

An unfortunate encounter with a long leashed dog took this Bianchi Cortina for a tumble. Dog and rider are okay, handlebar not so much.

Beautiful:

We finished the Soulcraft build! A great mix of parts for a super smooth solid superlative cycle.

And last, Steve added a BreadWinner 29er frame to his family of bicycles built in Portland. His current mtb will be for sale as soon as the mud of north Wisco is cleaned off so if you are interested come take a peek!

Well there you have it, up to date! Upcoming excitement includes a probable cyclocross race start on Sunday, tech and trailer support for the Soilmates mobile garden that will be rolling through the UI homecoming parade next Friday, the barely known Gritty Brevet, and an All City Space Horse frame up build. Actually that comes first and need to get back to it!
