Singlespeed Paradox!

I hear these 29ers are really fast and stuff. I also heard that singlespeeds are really cool. At least that's what the cool kids keep telling me... With that said we went ahead and built up our own version of a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup on wheels. Behold, a singlespeed 29er that doesn't suck!

Thanks to the nice folks at Yess for making such a slick tensioner.

The Geax Gatos seem pretty darn nice too! Gearing is hill friendly at 32x21 and yes, the fork is convertible to 120mm for all your gnar dog needs.

Come order one, you know you want to. We'll even keep this guy from groping it if you ask politely!

Oh yeah, we are now a GO PRO dealer as well. Expect some local riding footage in the next month or so...

New shop is open!

And, it actually looks like a bike shop and not some dank cave that smells of rubber and coffee. How awesome is that? We're real happy with the new space and fairly surprised with how many folks walking in never knew that the old shop was located only a mile away. I know it's Rhode Island and all but still... Oh, and the trails at the Monastery are less than a 1/2 mile away, offer a great workout and they are pretty damn fun to boot. How about that?

On the service front we're firing on all cylinders once again and staying on top of our goal of getting people back on their bikes in a few days. On the bike front we're psyched to let people know that we can now help them go big (and maybe deep into debt?) with IBIS. We're looking forward to seeing the new Mojo HD when it gets here later this week. I'm guessing the guy who bought is as well.

Other notable bikes that have been built/will be arriving shortly:

Banshee Paradox custom singlespeed build. We built this with a Yess ETR-B tensioner, X9 hubs laced to Arches, a Recon Gold, Surly cog, BB7s and a Truvativ Stylo 1.1 crankset. Pics to come shortly.

Surly Crosscheck Singlespeed . We sold our completes and we're itching to build the 54cm frameset. Expect to see it built in the next week or two. It'll be simple, sturdy and pretty darn affordable.

All City Nature Boy SS 'cross bike. Most of the parts are going to the Surly build above but the frameset is going to yours truly so I can build it up and rip around the local trails on it.

Rocky Mountain Solo CX 2012. We'll have a few of these in the shop as soon as they become available. No pics I can share yet but the spec is solid once again and the pricing is pretty aggressive. These will be great bang for the buck 'cross bikes.

The Lincoln Woods ride is still happening every Monday night. Meet at the park ready to ride @ 6:15! We're meeting at the covered bridge entrance off of 123 (Breakneck Hill rd.). Feel free to ride over from the shop with Mike and myself as well, we leave promptly at 6:00.

The Wednesday night bike path ride is still on as well, leaving from the shop at 6:00.

'Cross season is right around the corner but there are still a few MTB races on the calendar. I'm hoping to make it out to the Treasure Valley Rally on August 28th, if you're there say hi or at least heckle with enthusiasm.
