Just in today!
Brand new Volume Thrasher Frames. Full size run in the shop NOW.
Here is some info from Volume’s website:
“While the Cutter is our benchmark frame for all around commuting/ doing tricks, our new Thrasher is the next step of frames to take any abuse you can bring at it. While we didn’t want to change around the Cutter’s overall geometry, we decided to start from the ground upfor the geometry on the Thrasher. The Thrasher was designed from the input from tricktrack.org users and our team riders. Puckett wanted more tire clearance and mid bb shell, Congo wanted to clear barspins with zero toe overlap and Mosher wanted something easily maneuverable. We think we’ve accomplished all of that and then some.
Sizing: We recommend all customers ride the Thrasher before making a purchase. Because of the longer top tubes (for barspin clearance) the frames will be sized larger. Majority of customers who will buy the Thrasher will use it for tricks and want the size down from the recommended size we give them. Most want a smaller frame for maneuverability reasons.

Call for price and specs.
Lastly, brand new Volume Trickster bars in stock.
Added three new re-furbished used bikes to the floor today:
Cannondale Criterium 53cm – $500.

Some new items in the shop:

Soma Bullet Front light. Old stylings with new LED long life bulb.
New IRD Defiant track crank with a nice vintage look to it.
Heard upsetting news last night about a hit and run motorist seemingly targeting cyclists at random in the mission neighborhood. Apparently 4 cyclists were hit last night in the vicinity of the inner Mission and lower Potrero Hill neighborhoods. All Four survived but 3 had to go to the emergency room for treatment: one is in critical condition, one in serious condition, and one fair. The other victim was treated on the scene.
The vehicle was an SUV that was recovered by the police, however the motorist is not yet in custody. Here is a link to the SF Gate article:
We wish the best for the cyclists involved in these attacks. These are the neighborhoods that we live, work and frequent and way too close to home for comfort.
Be careful out there.
