French Waffles and Razor Scooters. BON!

Mael, one of the kids I photo bombed last week, is selling french waffles in front of the shop with his sister and cousin. Don't worry, they are french so the waffles are authentic. Here he is getting lifted. Sweet air, Mael.

P Funk's new bike

the bike
the man
the myth

Patrick (don't call him Patches... he hates it) works at our sister shop, The Fat Tire Farm. Wait there's more. For Christmas his loving girlfriend got him a wee little bike and in our opinion he rides with his seat way too high, but that's neither here nor there. Anyway, she was "sneaky", got a hold of our boss, and paid for it with out Patches.... I mean, Patrick knowing about it. I was a way J. For Christmas my girlfriend got me some new sponges so I can wash the dishes. He wins.

my new book

I LOVE to read and when I saw this gem on the shelf I knew I had to get it. Written by Rick James himself while he was in prison. It's a page turner, for sure.

Every girl's dream come true

QUKA went above and beyond. Not only did they make some sweet hats for the Blam, but they put our name on it. Holy crap. I just might cry. Thanks, Carlos.

dreams DO come true

Take it in.

Staying true.

Jordan doesn't know Mitch because this custom built bike wasn't made for him, but Christmas came, well, right on time for Mitch when be bought the frame and fork from the owner for an amazing price. He was in today swapping over his parts from his bareknuckle to his amazing Hufnagel. Congrats, Mitch.

From down under

Team Double Tap

Clazy, killin it.
My boy, Stacy Schrag, takes some sweet pictures. He was the photographer at the last BLAM and will be snapping shots at our upcoming event in February. Here he is with his new ride. Tron, brother. Tron.

Sprint and win

so gay. so right.
Giant is being sweet and sponsoring the Backyard Blam with bikes!! The Blam's headquarters is here at 21st Ave Bicycles. One, because we work here and two, because this is the sweetest shop. There are two of the Bowrey '84s. The one pictured above, which is a 2010, and the other is a white 2009. These are first place sprint prizes for the Blam's February event, Bridgetown Hustle. Spin to win, baby.

Sorry Alice, I had to.

This is Alex (Alice). He's a smart guy....really. Which is why we were surprised to see him install his cranks like this, twice. Bless his heart.

A night with Vanilla Bicycles

Long Distance Relationship Kyle, Jared(Kyle's roommate, cyclepath employee, and our friend), Uma, and I went to Vanilla Bicycles to see photos of the Giro d'Italia taken by photographer Dan Sharp. We ran into fellow 21ster, Married Kyle, and he was ready for a night of wonder. We all were.

Vanilla has a different kind of filing system. HA! I crack me up.
Married Kyle, some guy whom he thinks is funny, Long Distance Relationship Kyle, and Jared.
Frame alignment tool.

We parted ways with Married Kyle. and ended the evening off at a new bar called Maui's. L.D.R. Kyle described the bar as what a dive bar looks like when everything is new in it. He then proceeded to make all of us look like we never played a game of pool in our lives. We might have had something to do with that too.
