These Santas Boogied

I wanted to take a moment to send you a quick “Thank You” for your support with the San Antonio 5k Santa Boogie.  For a first time event, it went off without a hitch… other than wearing a velvet Santa suit in our Texas humidity.  Lol.  This event could not have been so successful without your help!  Thank you for the support with our event, and in our community.  Merry Christmas.

Here is the news clip from News 4 WOAI, 5pm:  http://www.woai.com/mediacenter/local.aspx?videoid=3855943

Shimano Goodies

Shimano just stopped by for a technical demonstration of their new Dura Ace 9000 group.  I took pictures of the bike and components– but I really should have taken pictures of the smiles on the employee’s faces when they came back from thier test rides.

The Coolest Bike in the Store

We just unboxed a Felt 24” road bike for display at our Helotes location.  I have a soft spot for youth sized road bikes.  Every time I get to sell or service one of these bikes I go out of my way to thank the parents for supporting cycling and tell the young cyclist how lucky he is.

Go read any cycling related headline to understand why this is the most important bike in our store.  Seeing one of these in the world always excites me.  I know the great things cycling can do for a kid.  Because of that I’m hopeful for all of the great things kids can do for cycling.

Please email me if you are interested in a youth road bike.  I’ll book a free fit session and spend some one on one time with any youngster interested in pedaling a road bike.
