So the lot of us are rolling off to Denver for NAHBS with piles and piles of boxes, three singles, a tandem, two frames and a woodchuck. Ferdinand will be having a holiday in South Philly, as the shop will be closed. We thought about bringing him along, but we hear there are mountain lions in Colorado and we don't want him to feel little and develop a complex.
Don't worry Big Man, everyone on the East Coast is smaller!
Bikerumor wrote a nice blurb about us. Thanks, Bikerumor!
We're super stoked to see all our favorite bike nerds and meet new ones. We'll have a whole bunch of merch, some old, some new, and some seriously blinged-out bikes.
BLING! That's going to go on a fork.
We also have two Amazing NAHBS Specials (tm). Number One...
Please order cool looking bikes!
And Number Two, which is kind of on the down low, so there isn't even a graphic. BUT! If you bring a live, healthy woodchuck to the Bilenky Booth, we'll build you a frame. Extra points for a good mannered woodchuck. And doped woodchucks will be disqualified at once. And be advised that it's your responsibility to bring the 'chuck back to his hole after the show-- we do not want to be responsible for a Colorado Woodchuck Plague.
Meanwhile, Ferdinand's intern is engaged in mysterious preparations:
But why? You ask. Why not! We say.
In any case, we will be recognizable.
So see you there and safe travels to those who are traveling. Do you know how HARD it is to keep Steve from packing excess bikes? (We only got a 10X10 booth). I know he's gonna try to slip a cargo bike or two in among the luggage. Not on my watch!
*By which I mean the exclamation, not the quaint little town that apparently exists in Somerset, UK. It even has a ! at the end. Who knew?
