One cannot have too many bikes...

You are still lacking a bike that you can ride to work, when you get back to the states. Something like a 16 lb. Giant TCX Advanced SL: http://www.giant-bicycles.com/en-US/...sl/7505/44075/.

You can still ride mostly dirt from your house to Waterton via Chatfield State park. Heck, I've had mine on singletrack already.

Dude, that's a $6,000 bike. You can buy an 80 for that now.

I need to come by and size a new bike for my 9-year-old daughter. Do you have any girly bikes in blue, purple or pink?

Yes! We have received our new inventory of 24" wheeled kid's mountain bikes from Trek and Giant. Adding in the 2010's still left from last year gives more color options as well.

Always nice to know the owners of small businesses, not that owning a bike shop is that small of a venture.

I'm going to have to stop by and say hello the next time I'm in the area.

It's now one week before Christmas. I will make any club member or referred person a smokin' deal on a bike 'til the end of the month! Remember Toyotas are not the only thing that can go off road!

We also have tons of accessories like helmets, especially kid's helmets, that a 25% discount wil apply to.

And it's got that crummy Dura-Ace stuff on it. It'd be a better bike with a Record groupo but I may be biased.

Do you have any track bikes?

Nothing in stock for track bikes, sorry. I can order in Giant's Omnium and the Track T-1 from Trek.

I have been out of the market for years. Are there any mountain and/or road bikes still made in the US? Looking to buy both eventually. Components that are designed to last more than a year would be a plus. When I used to ride, all of the pieces seemed to be designed to wear out.

Nothing is made here unless you want a custom titanium or steel frame. Components will last if you pony up for the race-level stuff, but like with anything, there are parts that are designed to wear out/have a finite product life cycle tied in with rider weight/style/abuse.

There is no way something could be made here, component-wise, and be price competive and affordable. Nothing beats Shimano XT or Ultegra(road), made in japan.
