It's Chrome baby!

School has started up again and you need a fresh new bag to sport around campus, right? We have the bag for you. Have you ever heard of Chrome bags? If not, check out their products at We have a GREAT selection of bags in the shop, so come by and see all of the options.

These bags are waterproof with MANY pockets and plenty of space, flashy colors, an area to place your favorite stickers (or write love messages for your crush to see as you ride by), and a perfect fit around your back and chest no matter how big or small you are. These are the best fitting bags on the market, hands down. We also carry the light-weight and heavy-weight Chrome knickers, laptop cases, and cell phone holders.

1 World - 2 Wheels

Last week at Trek World in Madison, Trek unveiled their global initiative to fight some of the today's toughest obstacles: pollution, global warming, and obesity (adult and sadly childhood as well). Trek has pledged a minimum of $1,600,000 annually to organizations such as IMBA and Bikes Belong to build more trails and help raise awareness on the benefits of riding bikes.
1 World - 2 Wheels: A TREK Commitment, will give everyone a real opportunity to re-evaluate the way they live their lives and hopefully make a change for the better. From finding Safe Routes to School for kids, to helping communities become more bike friendly, Trek's commitment to change the world could do just that.

Missouri State Champ!

I feel really weird typing a blog about myself on I'm handing the reins over to Geoff. Go for it, buddy.

Thanks Jess! And congrats on your championship race!

So two weekends ago the Missouri State Criterium Championship Race was held in Jefferson City. We had two racers from the shop show up ready to race. Greg Lyeki raced in the Category 4 race, coming in 3rd! The other racer was Jessica Meyer. Jessica raced in the women's open race, taking first prize and the Missouri State Criterium Champion's jersey. These two will be getting ready for Gateway Cup with the rest of the Manchester Racing Club. That race is going to be running labor day weekend. There will be four races that weekend. Check out the gateway cup website for more information. Two races to go before then, so when you see any of the racers in the store give them a pat on the back! And be sure to come out and support us on labor day!
