Last week of summer?

What the hell? That went by fast. We been so busy at the shop I hadn't thought about the fact that fall is like tomorrow or something.

So we have 8 18"Jabberwokys in the shop and 2 16"s. Nice. Funny thing is that the phone was blowing up for these things for months and now that we have em.......crickets! Funny. People are like fish, they are either biting or they are not.. What is even funnier is that I will probably sell all these in one day and the phone will blow up again. Ha! We got some of them fancy adjusters they upgraded to as well. Nice...

I can't wait to ride a mountain bike again. I sold mine as I usually do to someone that wanted it and I have been jonesing for 2 months. I like road bikes and all but, the woods is my thing. Maybe, I'll build one of these Jabbers.

So I think the teams are shaping up well. Gonna, be some fun racin this year. Essentially, the process for the teams will be nice this year. You want to be on it, you go to our site and click a link, purchase a kit by a certain date and bam your on it. Your discounts will be driven by the class you race. If you don't race and want to be on it anyway, well fine. You do the same thing and secure your 10% off for the year. You will get a card with your info on it and such. Really cool. Like a really big club with benefits. I'll keep everyone up to date as this rolls out. Should be real soon.

So we went to Fools Gold this weekend and laid down some mad sag stop support. Actually, if it had not been for Mattmatt we would have all been passed out on the groung. Mattmatt is the best support in the country and we take all our tips from him. We had a good time and the racers seemed to be enjoying themselves. To set the record straight, I was not the one that instigated the drinking at 9:30am. However, I did join Hodge in making a very nice pile of PBR cans for the racers to drool over. Mattycakes was there and I do believe that he was the drunkest by noon. Nice! Of course most of the racer boy wanna finish first no matter what types wouldn't have anything to do with drinking beer on the bike but, we were able to persuade most of the single speeders to pony up. Very nice!! All in all it was a good year we will be racing though.!? Oh, and Rachel aka LumberJill is a badass chick. She was able to carry more of the heavy ass shit up the hill 1/4 mile to the sag post than we were. Hodge and I were whipped by the end of the day and she hopped on her bike, went into the woods and rescued the last rider that was winning the terrapin. All the while fighting of panthers with a PBR can. BADASS....

So. I would also like to say that our own Addictive Cycles SS racers did very well and Kicked those pansy ass Vassago factory riders asses!! Ha! And they were hung over too. Yea! Good job fellas. Vassago owes us beers yo!

TEAM update from Fools. Ok. Rich Blanchette finished before Willie, Andy, and Crazy Eyes. He was on fire. I mean the first time he came through the sag 2/3 stop he had that look. He says to me, where are Willie and Andy (thinking that they were in front) and I say we ain't seen em. Rich throws his half eaten PBJ(made by Mattycakes) into the woods and says, and I quote. Those pansies ain't catchin me. Rich jumps on his bike and pedals up the bare hare pass with one foot..Geezuuuuss! About 1 hour later he come thru again running down crazy eyes. Rich doesn't stop, he just pops a wheelie grabs a cold PBR and strafes right by Crazy eyes. Whew!! It was a sight. Later that night Rich was babbling and seemed to be on some type of pain medication as he bolded his story of success. Crazy was busy hacksawing his frame in half while Willie and Andy had some type of smirk on their faces. Not sure what they had been up too........

Sorry about the sunglass swap Care Bear. By that time I was seeing double. Call me when you can and I'll get you the cash yo!

October 25th bitches......... You know what when and where. IT is ON!
