We Need Another Thou for Smile Train
December 29, 2010 To reach $50,000 raised this year, which covers 200 surgeries. I know that seems like a greedy amount, but if it were your child, you’d pay $200K to have the mouth fixed, and you know, Smile Train does it for $250. The tweed bags are due in March, late March, and if you haven’t ordered one…well, if you wait till they’re in they may be gone. Probably...
It's Not Too Late:
December 18, 2010 To get it by Christmas. To make sure it happens, we are offering 2-Day Air for the price of 3 day ($15) for all regular packages sent out on Monday and Tuesday. If you click 2 Day on the web, we’ll adjust the price before we charge your card. Don’t worry when it shows up $21. Human overriding will win out in the end. Of course, we can’t do this for bikes,...

We still have, like, six 50cm QBs left. We have long been, and at some level still are, dedicated to the taller and shorter riders not often accommodated by the bigger brands. But we’re kind of tired of having...
light and speed the english story
One thing funny about riding is that if it’s so fun, why is it also so important to shave seconds, or even a minute or two off a ride that isn’t a timed or competitive or timed competitive event? A recreational ride, for example. The normal ways to cut time —- I’m not saying they work —- are: Lighter bike lighter wheels more aero wheels aero...
Untitled Dec 10, 2010
We got some yellowy warm orangish wool tops in today. They’re double-knit crew neck longsleevers from Australia, and sort of hit the crosshairs of warmth and visibility. I don’t know of any other orange wool out there. Orange and wool often don’t go together. It’s a light orange, and pops. We are working on more Derby Tweed tops, like we had before, like everybody who has them likes and wants...
