New Dude at Colonel's

Colonel's has a new dude in the service/sales department. His handle is Josh Clark. Many of you already know him as an employee of other local bike shops but his latest tour stops here at Colonel's and we all hope he stays for a while. Josh is easy to identify by his studded soul patch and perky disposition. When he isn't wrenching on bikes he is working over the drum kit with his band Villain Vanguard . Bikes include: Scott Addict R4, Trek 69er single speed, old school steel Colnago single speed, and a patched together wheeler commuter. If you do not already know Josh please stop by and meet him. Unlike the rest of the grumpy old guys in the shop, Josh is easy to approach and never met a stranger.

Weight Weenies Delight

The Scott Addict R2 weighs 14.6 Lbs straight out of the box. Put some carbon tubulars on it and you could have a sub 14 pound bike. This thing is light, stiff and has a great ride quality. The fact that it's on sale makes it even sweeter! Sale Price is $5200.00 Retail price was $5775.00 Call us if you have any questions at (817) 924-1333

More Positioning

Madison Flowers came by the shop looking for a little more speed. He has been a busy guy, working hard and a new baby to boot, so when he gets a chance to ride he wants to be sure that time is not wasted with a poor position. Madison is fit and flexible with no leg length discrepancy but his seat was way too low and arm rests too high as shown in the before and after pics. Looks like he is now putting out more watts in a more aero position. Good Luck!

Fit, Fit, Fit!

Maybe the title of this post should be: Position, Position, Position. Anyway, lots of folks have been in to improve their bike position over the last few weeks. Most of the riders have been on tri bikes but James (the guy on the road bike) came by to work on his road position since he is steadily increasing mileage in order to train for the Leadville 100. The Leadville 100 is an off road mountain bike event that covers 100 miles in the mountains around Leadville Colorado. The other people in the pictures are training for various Triathlons. Cody Brewer on the Trek road bike has completed five Iron Man Competitions and needed to adapt the bike to a tri position. Tim Walls on the Kuota just wants to haul-A. Doug Smith on the Cervelo just wants to crush the competition and then challenge you to a cage fight!
