what a week!

This weekend The Fixed Gear Gallery is hosting their 4th Symposium in Traverse City, MI- I'm going to try and hit it up and possibly volunteer if i'm not too late. we’re not going to have a booth there this year...sorry! but if you see me, come & say hi, ask me for never know what goodies i might have on me! that actually starts today and goes through sunday...

This week in reviews we've got some gloves from Spenco and a BAD ASS knife from Gerber...hmmm... I also just got a comfort bike from Day 6 Bicycles the other day and I'll tell you about that next week...we also got a ton of product from Tri-Flow, so you'll be hearing about that too... and i just wanna mention that all of my darn tough socks are dirty and my feet don't feel right without 'em. check those guys out- the padded sole is to die for...all day comfort- i'm tellin' ya!!! I'd be a grumpy dick if I hadn't discovered these...We've also got a pair of Aerospoke wheels on the way...oh boy!!! i know there's more i'm forgetting... it's just an exciting week!!! oh- I also fixed the Cycleogical Chopspokes review too! sorry about that. Thanks to those of you that wrote in!!!

Oh yeah- time is running out to enter the contest to win the Bianchi San Jose Pro...all you have to do is sign up for the newsletter!!!
