Do you want to demo one of the Jones bikes? Then you are in luck. We'll be doing a demo ride at the Watershed before the presentation at The Bicycle Escape (see entry below). Here's how it works:
The demo ride will go from 5pm to approximately 6:30pm on Thursday. We are limiting this to 6 riders because we are going to go on an actual ride. We'll have 3 bikes to demo so you'll be switching from the Jones back to your own bike (or someone else's) at least once so everyone gets a chance to try the Jones. You should be comfortable in some technical terrain since we plan on hitting a variety of conditions and some rock features so you can get a feel for how the bikes handle.
Note: Don't worry, there will be geared bikes to demo, this is not a single speed only deal, but there will be one SS on hand.
Email me at riderx AT singlespeedoutlaw DOT com to get put on the demo list.
If you can't make the demo, still come out to the presentation at 8:30pm Thursday June 12th. There will be Clipper City beer on hand and there will probably be a chance to do a parking lot demo as well.
Directions to the shop can be found here. Hope to see you on the 12th!
Cool stuff on the horizon //
Monday - June 2, 2008
More biking than writing as you can see from the thin updates here lately. There has also been some non-bike related things in life that are consuming much of my time. However, one of the things I've been working on the last few weeks, and it is bike related, is arranging for titanium bike builder Jeff Jones to visit the SSOFT team's shop sponsor for a talk about his bikes and design ideas. So I'm here to tell you it's official, Jeff will be coming to The Bicycle Escape in Frederick, MD on Thursday June 12th at 8:30 pm to talk bikes and show off 4 of his builds including his well known titanium space frame, the new steel double diamond frame and his new fat fork equipped bikes. This should be a good time kids, so come on out, it's a free event and I will be making sure we have Clipper City beer on hand as well.
Memorial Day week end was filled with great rides and great weather. Saturday's epic was cut short by Jay snapping a handlebar but we went back and hit it again on Monday with nearly 5 hours in the saddle.
Sandwiched inbetween those two adventures was a trip to Big Bear, WV to pre-ride the 24 Hour course. We are looking to race a fixed gear team but still looking for a 4th rider. Anyone game? email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Flew solo mid-week, early morning ride on Saturday before meeting with Patapsco staff about the Thru Trail project then out with my lady Sunday morning at the Shed for a ride we wrapped up right before the rain hit. All in all some quality ride time recently but I'm sorry to say my ride report from UT/NV will have to wait a bit, too many other important things going on to focus on that one at the moment. In due time it will get done though.
