We're Legit

We're now officially a Rocky Mountain bicycle dealer. Just thought I'd share the good news with the two people who have visited this blog.

If you haven't checked out the new lineup you can click here and drool over the latest offerings from our friends to the north. Expect to see Mike and I out on the trail (and maybe the roads) on Rockys this season. I'm thinking an Altitude 50 is going to make an ideal all 'rounder for those early morning escapades in Lincoln Woods and Foxboro.

We're almost there...

Since we last visited more than a few things have transpired and Mike and I are going at this full blast. We hope to be open in a few short weeks with a focus on service with bikes, parts, T shirts, jerseys and other bicycle riding paraphernalia soon to follow. An official sign and some advertising are next on the agenda, and today we joined NEMBA as a supporting shop. Yeah I know, that's a shock...

Maybe you're wondering just where we are located? The address is 179 Front St. in Lincoln, RI. Feel free to swing by and drop in for a visit. We're in there often getting the place all spiffed up and whatnot. Our "official" website is in the works and we'll have a phone number shortly. The shop is a few hundred yards from the Blackstone River Bikeway and roughly one mile from Lincoln Woods. Since we already spend an inordinate amount of time doing trail work, and riding, at Lincoln Woods this shouldn't be too surprising to anyone who knows us. And, as an added bonus, there's a Honey Dew Donuts next door. How Rhode Island! This should make giving directions real easy...

Below are a few pics of the shop in no particular order. I'll leave up to you, dear reader, to figure out the chronology. More to follow as the service area is finished over the course of the next day or so. The bench is pretty darn nice and we're actually a little scared to get it dirty.

Now, here's the part where I could launch into some long winded manifesto like spiel detailing how we plan to dominate the world and make everyone happy with bicycle riding good times and tasty snacks. I'm not going to bother. The long and short of it is we like bikes, a lot, and we're going to try like hell to get more people into them as well. Whether you're riding to work, in the woods, on the 'cross course or just for pure recreation (and I hope you all do this now and then, even you serious types) you should find something of interest at our shop. If you don't then I guess we're not doing our jobs.

And now, some exciting bike shop interior pictures:
