Craig's 7th year at monster track...lucky?
Mario Cipollini represents all that is awesome about Italian pro cyclists. Mario is a superstar and he knows it. One part super sprinter, one part Italian model, one part greaseball. I beleive that the latter two traits enhance the former. Cipo defines flamboyance: at home on the podium or with a bevy of surgically enhanced models. Recently, my teammate Natalia reminded me about Cipo's sprint and the next day I ran across this Saeco cap in the basement. As many of you know, Cipo and Saeco...
Even Cider wants to see this plan pass. It includes many positive reforms we all could use and all bicyclists should wholeheartedly get behind this...go to livablestreets for more.
Those are the eyes of a future racer and a kid who knows she has a snow day comming up... Bold sprints at the middle-east hours before being hit with 12 inches of snow.
Years ago, in Amsterdam. everyone said there were tons of bikes in the canals and I stared at the water hoping to spy some but i never did,,,b.s. i think not,,,photo from bikesnob.
This winter has been harsh for cyclists. The snow and ice are fierce, but what really gets me down is the salt. Sure it melts snow but it also corrodes bikes parts and ruins steel frames. If not for the salt, I would be able to ride from December through April without overhauling my bicycle. Two roads I traveled yesterday: Winchester--a huge pile of salt waiting to attack my steel frame (notice my tracks); Sudbury/Wayland--unsalted and therefor too slick to ride safely. Perfect examples of...
We just got a store front renovation by means of new photos of employees, friends and customers commuting in the winter. Our friend Tasha of Pedal Power Photography and the Cambridge Bicycle Race team took all the photos and they look amazing!!
Everyone loves a scandal. In cycling that means doping and cheating. Festina was a great team. The team's soigneur was pulled over and caught with 250 vials of EPO and steroids. Further investigation revealed that systematic doping was behind Festina's success. The 1998 "Festina Affair" exposed widespread systematic doping in cycling. TVM was one of the first other teams to be implicated. I love memorabilia from disgraced and/or defunct organizations. RMM
Cinelli accessories on the way....sorry no biscottis....stay tuned!

Euro-Asia Imports happens to be one of our favorite companies to do business with. Why? Because their boxes show up looking like the staff has spent years in the euroasian mountains practicing their craft of packaging precision. Notice the clean lines of the packing tape and the thoughtful space utilization. Where most companies may throw a bunch of steel MKS toeclips into a box, EAI bubble wraps them! Whats missing from these pics is all of the crumpled newspaper that I had removed to take...
This happened a lil' while back and we were slow to get it out to the world. How cute can two Iro's look together? Waaayyy cute! Like omgzzz foreallzz cute. Sometimes we have to remind ourselves to wake up from the dreamlike state that our super attractive customer base tends to envelop us in. Think: pink, fluffy clouds...sigh

We had a couple of pretty awesome bikes in the shop today. One was a Bud Bike Works (#9 actually) built by our good friend Matty Budd. I wonder what he is up to these days? Rumor has it he may be cranking out some frames soon. In any case we had a happy customer on our hands. He went on about how much he likes it, and how fun it is to ride. His favorite part...the Matt Budd special back end.
