Cranx is AWESOME!!!

If you ever get the chance, GO TO CRANX in Syracuse, NY.  It was just under 4 hours away, and totally worth it!  55 of us #gotonthebus and made the jouney there and damn... I wanna go back! From small roller pumptracks, to medium roller big bermed box lines to huge box lines ( all rollable too) this place had it.  Even the park people had fun with the amazing bowl room and a foam pit to huck yourself as well.
 For sure my favorite trip to date. Thanks Easthampton crew! You guys are always fun to watch shred.  Thanks Central mass crew for keeping everyone entertained. ( If I rode with you on a regular basis, Gaspar, I might get good!) Thanks to John C and Zach for all the help.  Thanks Norm and Beau for representing the hilltowns!  Thankyou Norm B for your constant enthusiasm.  Hope you enjoy the bars, Dean! You earned them!  Thank you everyone for the positive vibe that was in the air all day long.  Great time. 
Tell me when you want to do it again!

CRANX is 9 days away!!!

The Cranx trip is only 9 days away!  There are still plenty of seats left, so grab a friend and Get on the bus!  Cost is $80. That includes getting there and back, a full day of riding, pizza if I sell the bus out, and a chance to win something!  We have a few movies picked out for the ride, but we are open for suggestions. The bus leaves the shop at 6 AM, sunday the 16th.  Make sure you have your bike taken apart ( front wheel off, pedals off, bars folded down), Its very important to do this.  Its the only way to get 55 bikes on a bus!  Make sure you have a helmet and a Pillow ( its a long ride). 
IMPORTANT!! :  If you are UNDER 18, you MUST download Cranx' waiver from their website, and have it SIGNED and STAMPED by a Public Notary.  Its very easy, and it has to be done. NO EXCEPTIONS.  If you have been to Cranx before, you are all set.  But if this is your first time, which Im sure it is for a lot of you, you MUST HAVE THE WAIVER! :)  I think that is all.  Any questions call the shop. 413-585-8700
Get your payments in please! I dont want to deal with people paying the day of the trip at 6 in the morning :)

Snow is comin!

   Looks like another snow day tomorrow!  I like it when they fall on my day off.  Get to go bomb down some hills with my kids! 
   After you get yourself dug out, come visit the shop and see the FatBike we have in right now.  Its our good friend, Don's bike.  FatBikes seem to becoming more and more popular these days, and we carry a few different versions.  A couple by Surley, and one by Origin 8.  Prices range from 1450-2200 for these beasts.  Once you have a Fat Bike, you wonder how you have survived without one.
   And dont forget the $50 tuneup special we are running through February.  This kick ass Independent Fabrication came through and got all spiffed up for the upcoming season.  Such a sweet bike.  Thanks, Jeff!
   Lastly, DONT FORGET about CRANX!  Sunday, Feb 16th.  Bus leaves the shop at 6am!  Still seats available, $80. ( covers the bus ride there and back, plus 7 hours of Riding, pizza, goodtimes, prizes...)  Call the shop with questions. 413 585 8700
