A Treat on the Ergon USA Commuter-Team Blog

Want some eye-candy? We know you do…as I’ve mentioned about a half-million times here, I was selected as one of the 12 riders on Ergon USA’s 2011 Commuter Team (I have to mention it; it’s in my contract!). Well, today they put up a brief profile of yours truly, resplendent in our limited-edition jersey.

Spin on over to the Ergon USA blog page to read all the lurid details. With a little luck, the other Commuter Team participants will have their profiles up and running soon…there will be a few familiar names to those of you who spend a lot of time reading good bike blogs. Good stuff all around, I say!

Are you a Super Commuter?

Our friends at Ergon USA are looking for commuters to sponsor.

Here’s some of the details:

Do your friends and co-workers call you a super commuter? Do you commute by bike nearly 365 days a year? Rain or shine? Do you share your experience via your blog, Facebook, or Twitter account? Let us know your commuting story! We are looking for a few hardcore commuters across the USA and Canada to spread the word of the Ergon urban lifestyle for the 2011 calendar year.

Tell us why we should support your commuting habit? Email us your story with few pictures to: with the subject line “2011 Ergon Commuter�. Those select few (15-20 riders) that will be chosen will have access to some amazing products for the next full year! In return, we ask that you share your experiences with our products on media outlets, spread the Ergon word in your city, and help us test products in the various elements. Sound like fun? Then email us at the link above.
