VELOCITY SALE

1 07 2009

We got Velocity Deep V’s for $260, all colors, come pick a set up before you miss out, you may just find that EVERYTHING in the shop is cheaper that most shops, and if you shop local shops (in our hood) it’s definitely cheaper, if the part, frame, wheel set, etc is not in the shop we can get it next day, cruise by!!

MY STOLEN BIKE

13 06 2009

My shit got ripped off right out of the shop….when I was in the back office! Next person I catch stealing from me may never walk again much less ride a bike, this is MY personal ride so to say the least this is personal, these parts are VERY obvious, I’ll hook up a FREE “Pake” frameset or deep V wheelset for the person that finds my bike, or at least the front wheels, stem and seat….I’d be alright with that, bring it, who’s got the balls to step up?

shitty cell phone pic, it had a flat black Vuelta 3″ deep V on the back with a yellow tire….

Just show me where the bike is, or address and you are hooked up, no names dropped.

AMARO FAT TIRE

24 04 2009

This is the obvious next step in fixed gear.  Count me in for hammering on a dirt road and laying some 50 ft skids down, maybe even hitting a few jumps.  These guys have some great products. AMARO

FROM THE UK WITH LOVE “VeloSolo”

22 04 2009

When it comes to understanding the culture of fixed gear, I think VeloSolo has it on point. They’re conversions are very cool.  They realize how much cool road/ mountain shit can be converted for your fixie. Like converting your wheels and hubs without costing you a fotune.  Check out those bolted on cogs, no slip there, and the stright bars?? those are nuts!  We should be getting some in the shop in a few weeks so stay tuned.  For now pretend your in London with some hot Eastern European girl and  go check the site- VeloSolo,  there are a lot of amazing products on their site, go peep it!!

Shimano Devore hubs converted, so beefy.
