Raise your hand if you want to be next.

As you all know we do something called “Commuter Profile.” This is where we highlight a commuter…just like you! That’s right you can get your 15 minutes of fame, and show of your bicycle! You can send your profile to your family and friends…impress that co-worker that always is harping on you for riding your bike to work. Hey, what about impressing the boss. This is a sure fire way to get some good attention from the MAN.

So with that said, let us know if you would like to be our next Commuter Profile. For the guys…chicks dig it. For the ladies….guys love chicks who ride! Seriously!

Back from Interbike

We are back from Interbike and we finally have most of the sites up. We learned a few things about both events — never trust your host provider and beer flows after 4:00pm at Interbike. What was the biggest trend? Commuter/Utilitarian Bikes! Most manufacturers will offer bicycles with fenders, racks, lights and power-assist electric motors. Check out the pictures:
