Saturday SF Bike Expo Cross race!!

November 20, 2009

Pedal is sponsoring the BikeMonkey/Murphy (aka Mr. Goldsprints!)  Monster cross race on Saturday at the SF Bike Expo.  It will be awesome.  Here is a link to some photos of the course being set up.  Come on down for all the bike fun.

If you aren’t familiar with Cyclocross racing here is a video link to get you up to speed….

Here is a snapshot back in time of  some hard folks in France around 1926 in a “typical” early century cross race…  More cowbell please!

and some more sweet trench action….

Come out.  See good bike stuff.  Be rowdy. Heckle. Have Fun.

Bikes, parts, and news…

November 18, 2009

I’ve been tardy on the blogging lately.  Things have slowed down a little over here but a rash of  injuries have plagued Pedal in the last month.  Good buddy and mechanic David is out with a broken shoulder from a crash above Pacifica on the old highway 1.  We wish him a speedy recovery for race season next year.  Mechanic “cat lady” Ken Ho sprained his wrist pretty good in a catastrophic knitting accident two days after David was injured.

There have been a lot of bike injuries lately around town and it seems like everyday a customer hobbles in with a crunched bike and a scary story to go with it.  It’s getting dark early now, please don’t forget your lights and helmets as it’s easy to get caught out after dark without lights right now.

Here are a couple of cool photos of two bike shops from around 1918.  Lot’s of Brooks saddles in the first shot.

I love the salesmen in suits in the second photo.  Notice the chandeliers are made from old rims and the vintage “cheesecake” calendar on the post below the clock.

The bike above is fortunately not the result of a real crash.  This bike was “customized” by us for a cameo appearance on the SF based Trauma tv show.  Yikes!  Keep an eye out if you watch the show for a “fixie” gone wrong scenario.

Here are a few fun new builds from the last couple weeks for sale:

This one is a Handsome Devil frameset built up as sweet Monster Cross bike with the new Soma Junebug drop bar and some nice chunky panaracer tires.

This will take on anything you throw at it.  Great fast trail bike, tourer, or all around stomper 54cm $1,100.  Pick it up just in time for this..

It will be awesome.
