Mavic Demo Wheels

Want to see how a nice set of Mavic Ksyrium SLR or Cosmic Carbon with Exalith coating can improve the ride of your current bike? Come on by and demo these for your next weekend event. The price is $150.00 and you can apply that to a new set if you decide to purchase a pair. The Exalith coating which is commonly used in formula 1 parts manufacturing improves strength and braking while maintaining light weight.

Free Beer today at Colonel's from 3:00 to 6:00 p.m.!

It's Wednesday 3-7-12 and we are offering free beer at the shop from 3:00 - 6:00 p.m. We probably won't have any until we are done at 6:00. It looks a little like rain but it looks alot like a sunny day when you're drinking inside at the shop! There's nothing really in stock(beer wise) here that we drink, so if you feel inclined to bring some Tecate, Sierra Nevada (Pale Ale) or Stone Pale Ale, we'll certainly have one with you when we are done !

Seven Cycles Refurb and Rebuild-Nice!

We see plenty of nice bicycles pass through the service center that deserve blog acknowledgement and I plan to post more images and descriptions of those in 2012. I'm getting a late start but here is a bike worth recognizing. This Seven Elium SLX belongs to Phil Bright long time member of the manly bulge bicycle club (MBBC). The bike was stripped down and sent back to the Seven factory for complete refurb which includes brushing the titanium, cleaning the carbon, checking alignment, installing new decals and headtube badge and applying a custom decal whit Phil's nickname (Spillbert) on the top tube. In addition, Phil purchased a new titanium Seven seatpost and stem. Top it off with rebuilt shifters, overhauled hubs, new cables and housing, Lizard Skins DSP 2.5 bar tape, new chain and Continental GP 4000S tires. Looks like Phil is ready for the season. Thanks Phil!
