You’re waiting until spring to buy a touring bike? Pansy.

Going into stock as we speak (in the US of A) are Blue Velvet (also known as Hill Street Blue and also just Blue) Long Haul Trucker complete bikes. We don't have many for this first go-round, but maybe it's just enough for you... and for the sit-tay.

When You’ve Finished Entering…

I was on the mtbr site recently and found these pictures of a cool way to protect your Xtracycle Side Loaders while recycling old road tires.   Pretty cool idea.  Devo deserves the love for this.  Send it to him.  Do it now.
