From Calvert Guthrie:
JULY 14th 8AM....This is a total clearance sale!!!
Yes, I know, but it's out of my hands.
Prices on all bikes are dirt low and are sold as is.
Some restored bikes remain but are going quickly--
they are not the only values in stock.
Many of the older bikes are loaded with
hard to find, barely-used, retro parts...
freewheels, Suntour parts, thumbshifters,
bottle cages, racks, saddles, long-reach
brakes for 650 wheel conversions, &c.
and for storage of our tools while the
organization is reformed.
to help folks find a bike that fits them.
Lots of rain has made cycling pretty miserable for the last week in our area. But a break in the wet stuff gave the folks of the Capps-Rebound team an opportunity to host anther of their excellent time trials. The 20K course featured a mix of terrain, a very healthy prize list and a great raffle. Results here. Roger Harrison captures the action in pics here. And on July 9th you can go to www.stephensmithimages.com and order images online: password timetrial.
The Ferrellgas folks have jumped into the local cycling scene in an active way. Check out what this cool bike was set up for:
