It's Snowing, Again!

Due to adverse weather conditions we are closing early today,

Friday January 28th, at 5:30.

And tomorrow, Saturday January 29th from 11-5.

On the road to recovery!

So the first X-Ray is my hand one day after surgery, if you look closely you can see the fracture just below the pins in the image on the right.

This is my hand one day after they removed the pins, about a month after the "incident".

I have some serious work ahead of me to make the thumb and hand strong again.
I can't say enough thanks to my wife for taking care of me and dealing with me through all of this. It sucked, and I don't suffer quietly.
And to the "kids" for holding it down at the shop for me during the numerous absences and handling all the heavy work as I have been shorthanded...

Snowy Days At The Shop

Fortunately, all of the staff has been building themselves mountain bikes. So everybody has been making it into work, more or less on time.

Here we have Maghan and Gary looking handsome with their complimentary bikes.

Adam stopped by to thaw out for a bit while getting around on his cross bike. He will be officially joining the crew after a quick trip to UBI for some learnin'.

Just in case you weren't sure, this is what we call the employee benifits package.

Just some pics of snow covered bikes and broken stuff in the yard...

Snow seems to make it all seem a little more quiet and peaceful.

And the postman brought us a bundle of the newest Fast Pace Zine, come get some.

Quiet, snowy, icey, salty, days at the shop. Not for long, almost time to start demo and renovations on the new space!

Gross Things We Find...

Yeah, a bunch of bugs inside this bottom bracket shell. How do they get there and why? I have found lots of spiders and even a bee. What makes the guts of a bicycle so inviting to little creepers?
