I like people who make useful things with their own hands.
When i see things that are great items that may fit into our bicycle store I think that maybe others will like these items too.
Here are things that I brought into the store for the holidays. I hope
to always keep a few things like this around because people that live in this community make cool stuff.
messenger bags from noelleo designs
cool womans handbag from Reclaimed Wreckage
om re-purposed tubes. little flower detail is fun
Top Tube pad admired by the fixie crowd. hand made and printed by Mode.

The Utah Bicycle Summit was last week and I am pleased that I attended. Here are some of the highlights of the event
- A good sized group of people that care about the use of bicycles in this state.
- A chance to get out of the store and re-connect with one of the reasons we are in this industry
- Catch up with old friends that are doing good for cycling in Utah
- Meet new friends that will be good for our future.
The good people from Bike Provo did a better job of reporting on the event than I could.

Several of us were able to run down to Fruita, CO to demo some Trek and Gary Fisher full suspension bikes. Brent continues to salivate over the Superfly 100. My guess is that he'll have to own one soon enough. McCool tore it up on a Fuel EX 8 the first day, and a Remedy 9.9 the second day. He was really impressed with both, and was floored by how well the Remedy climbed for a bike with so much travel.
The first day I grabbed a Trek Scratch 9. It was way too much bike for how I ride, but I was really impressed with its ability to handle anything. The second day I think I found the perfect Utah bike - the Rumblefish II. It's nimble enough to climb and fly in the flats, yet burly enough to handle the technical stuff that Utah throws at us. It's a wonderful bike!
We'll post more about the trip in the next couple days. The riding was great and the weather beautiful.
