One of our favorite sayings here in the shop is Ever Forward! Also, the Future Does Not Exist, which is enough to give you a headache if you think on it too long. With that in mind here is a saddle Brooks introduced earlier this year that the 30¢ Squad has been doing extensive townie testing upon this year. We give it a big thumbs up for your butt! Errr, well it’s a nice saddle that feels broken in right out of the box, and has some serious style futuristic retro style.

Like this 2015 MASI Gran Criterium. Gum wall tires and 11 speed?! Say okay, don’t be a square now. Like us. We switched to Square for our small business (okay – micro business) point of sale cash registering and credit card acceptance needs. No more paper receipts! We can take your Discover card or AmEx even!

Plus we got to clear all this junk off our counter.

And we got to get an iPad which is good for Square. And all kinds of other important bike shop stuff.

Got our first 2 generator wheel orders as the season of the Darkness approaches.

Don’t take it from us, listen to them:

When you’re cycling through the city at night
And you’re dodging these apartment lines
I’ve got my fingers greasy
And you didn’t care
I was fixing your shame

This is our shame salvaging package deal – no polluting or burnt up batteries for you – handbuilt wheel with a Shimano disc compatible generator hub laced with DT spokes to a Sun rim because <duh> with a Planet Bike blaze generator light to bright that night for $230.

First two wheels built, time change in about 2 weeks and just as the Darkness say –

Nothing’s gonna stop us!

Cause it doesn’t matter where we are
Oh when you’re the stunt peg
And I’m in the chair
I was pulling a wheely
You were pulling my hair
They’ll never catch us
Cause we’re catching air
