This past Sunday we held our Jamis/Titus demo at Gambrill State Park. The weather was perfect and lots of folks enjoyed test rides. Everything from a Jamis Exile 29er single speed to a Titanium/Carbon Fiber Titus RacerX was present at the event. The folks who came to the demo got an extra treat. We were showcasing the brand new 2008 Shimano XT equipment complete with shadow technology and pierced logos. Thanks to all who participated in the event as well as Robert (from Jamis) and Craig (from Titus/Shimano) for helping us out.

There is something about top tube protectors that I find very cool. Maybe it is the track star image or the gel encased steel. I don’t know what it is about them but I am now the proud owner of a Kashimax Five Gold top tube protector. I put it on my Surly fixed gear. Sure the tubing is thick enough that it would probably never dent but still I think it looks great. It is also fun for me to stock an item with such cool and imported looking packaging.

The Bicycle Escape Wednesday road rides are in full swing. If you have been missing out on the fun show up at the shop every Wednesday at 6:00pm with a bike and helmet… it’s that easy! The rides have been around 20 miles long at a pace of about 17mph. In case you did not realize it TODAY is Wednesday which means, of course, the ride is tonight. I hope to see you their.

Yesterday we completed a fun project: an IF Steel Deluxe Single Speed with a customized XTR crank (a la Jeff Jones). The bike is painted Vanilla Shake with green decals and has the Paragon Sliding Dropouts. It is built up with the Pace carbon fork and tips that scale at 21.7lbs.
