YiPsan Display

To celebrate The Bicycle Escape's new dealership of YiPsan Bicycles we are honored to have a fleet of YiPsan custom bikes on display. Some of these beauties were shipped to us directly for the North American Handmade Bicycle Show. The collection includes a fixed gear with hand painted firecracker graphics, a single speed cyclocross bike, and two road bikes. For those of you who are unaware of YiPsan, you should check out their frames. Each one is a work of art crafted using traditional lug or brazing methods.

More YiPsan Photos are available here.
Don't wait too long to stop by the shop this display will not be here forever!!!

Stop, Swap & Save

It was nice to see so many friendly faces at the 2008 Stop, Swap, and Save event this past weekend in Westminster. This year we brought back the super popular “Wheel Game” and many of you left The Bicycle Escape booth with cool prizes. We were also honored with the opportunity to lead a bicycle fitting seminar. The seminar was well attended and it was our pleasure to participate. For those of you who we met at the event please stop by the shop sometime soon and say hi. We would also like to thank everyone that helped us make this year’s event a success.

Bicycles and Home Brew

The Bicycle Escape just can't seem to get enough of recycling old bike parts. Our latest installment is tap handles. Since there is a lot of riders that home brew it is only natural that bike parts be used as tap handles. This might just be the best combination since some dude accidentally dropped a chocolate bar into an open jar of peanut butter. This handle was made as a birthday gift for our very own (and aging) friend Mike but expect to see more soon. Until then cheers.
