Super Record 11

I don't speak italian, but super record is speaking to me. I can't read french, but if I could I would suspect that the site that is showing true manufacturer pictures of the Super Record Gruppo is saying they can't wait to get their hands on the new product. Here's some first glimpses. My understanding is that the difference between super record and record is that all parts will be anodized black and come with ceramic bearings. Where as the standard record will have silver. Start saving now as it will be a pretty penny I'm sure.

and for some more good news TIME will be coming out with an RXR Ulteam road frame. Sharp lines like the RXR with the cleanliness of the Ulteam. I would suspect the combination of the Super Record 11 and RXR frame will be the must have for 2009. Time is definitely pushing the envelope with system integration and industry leading manufacturer processes. Keep your eyes on the peloton as I'm sure this frame will creep out on some big hitters. If you want to get your name on a frame we are currently taking back orders. Call 866.497.3624 x 207 ask for zach

TGIF girl on a bike

you can't go wrong with girls on bikes. Enjoy and have a great weekend.

Obama supports bikes

According to the Bicycle Retailer. Obama has pledged to increase funding for cycling and pedestrian projects. I just read another article about the increase in cycling as transportation as we reach $4 a gallon for gas. According to that article they said only 1% US citizens were using the bike as transportation. Europe's average was 30%. I I think that may also have a connection with the obesity problem in the US.

CHICAGO, IL (BRAIN)—Barack Obama, in a private 20-minute meeting with members of the Bikes Belong board of directors, told them if he were elected president he would increase funding for cycling and pedestrian projects. And the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee also said he would support Safe Routes to Schools programs.

He also told them he seldom makes promises on what he would do if elected president, but that this was a promise he would keep. Tim Blumenthal, executive director of Bikes Belong, laid out the industry’s position on boosting funding for cycling-related projects and for Safe Routes to Schools at the meeting.

Celebrate the life of Peter Susumu Togasaki

Dear Family and Friends:

Please join us to celebrate the life of Peter Susumu Togasaki on Sunday, June 15th, at the Skyline Community Church in Oakland. The service will begin at 3:00 pm and will be followed with a reception in the courtyard.

When: Sunday, June 15th, 2008 - 3:00 pm
Where: Skyline Community Church located at 12540 Skyline Blvd, Oakland, CA 94619

The church is easily accessible for all wheeled vehicles and parking is aplenty. We welcome those of you who are interested to don bike jerseys and team kits to ride to the service in honor of Peter's love of bicycles. This, of course, also means motorcycles are more than welcome.

We are hoping for a beautiful, sunny day but it can get very windy and chilly in the Oakland hills, so warm clothing or layers may be called for. Please feel free to wear cheerful colors or anything you think is appropriate for a celebration for Petersaurus.

In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to the East Bay SPCA in honor of Peter's memory:

Please don't hesitate to forward this invitation to anyone who may want to join us in our celebration, but we might have missed. If you have any questions, you are welcome to contact me at We look forward to seeing you there.

Steve, Sally, Jessica, and Alekist

Colnago and Ibis

Just a pretty colnago waiting to be finished in the service department.

I'm getting a late start to the season, but a new bike will always get you excited about riding. Big Green ready to hit the trails.

Supa Light Freeride La Bruja!!!

This is by far, the coolest human ever produced in Australia! This is what he does and this is how he does it. He usually does it naked, but this bike is so fantastic, he has to wear clothes so that the wildlife does not run away from their habitat!
The bigfatadder goes huge on his sorceress!

DeRosa NEOTrack

We have been talking to the importer of DeRosa bikes for a while now about a DeRosa track bike. I spoke specifically with Christiano DeRosa at interbike about a DeRosa track bike. He said "yes, we can do." Well I guess all the pestering has paid off, as I just got the leaked photo of the new NeoTrack. There is a 56 and a 57 available today, trust me there not going to last. They have the same geometry as a NeoPrimato, same tubing, but with track drops.

Questionably it's drilled for front and rear brakes, so we'll see how the street crowd feels about that. MSRP $2200. There should be another container showing up in the near future, so if you need a different size give a shout out and we can get you a backorder in for you.
