Homey Fall Fest Photos

IMG_2120
Well well, another Homey Fall Fest has come and gone with the usual amount of organization and hijinks.

We spent what ended up being a gorgeous fall day messing around down at Hidden Falls and finished it up with a nice little fire along the banks of the Mississippi.

Photos. Boom.

All-City Thunderdome Prebook

IMG_2780
If you’re dying to get your hands on the new All-City aluminum track racer, the prebook’s just went live. 

Thunderdome

While we are deeply in love with steel, we recognize that in certain instances other materials can be super appropriate.  One such scenario is on the velodrome, where things like resiliency and vibration damping take a backseat to concerns over stiffness and weight.  Of course you can race your Big Block at the track, but at a competitive level few choose steel. 

Enter the Thunderdome. 

We’ve taken our tried and true Big Block geometry and adapted it to a shorter axle to crown carbon fork and alloy frameset.  Because we love the lines of the old Cannondale track bikes, we went with traditional round tubing, a standard 1 1/8″ headset, and to give it that AC touch, polished panels on the downtube and seatstay. 

It is stiff, fast, and ready to race.

Head to your local shop and have them reserve one for you, MSRP is $650

Track or Treat 6 Results

IMG_2036
The kickoff to this past weekend’s bike extravaganza was the sixth annual Track or Treat race on Friday night. The race started and ended at Peacock Groove, and the course was a flat out 13.5 mile sprint through the Friday night traffic.

46 racers showed up and took to the streets.

After the news about Chuey broke on Thursday, we quickly turned Track or Treat into a fundraiser and between the donation jar and the raffle (big thanks to The Hub for the sweet Velocity Wheels) we raised about $250 for the cause.

Kayla and Nick rocked the raffle

Stolen Bike Alert: NE MPLS

(no picture yet)

My friend Mary just sent this over:

Not sure if you know my brother Jerome, big guy, tattoo artist, funky mustache, went to EC as well… But his bike just got ripped off outside of Sentyrz in NE. One of those – forget the lock, in the store for 10 minutes to grab beer and it’s gone.

Here’s a description but it is pretty recognizable being it has a few distinct features.

Jamis Beatnik single speed, white & black frame with custom leather grips (very recognizable), white front tire, black rear tire – serial #U96U39699

If you see this bike, please grab it back.  It should be recognizable as a SS Jamis with a white front tire and leather grips.

And don’t say shit about the no lock thing, we’ve all done it.
