The racing will begin at 3pm with the main events beginning at 6pm. Cost is $5 per person or $10 for the whole family. Or, stop by the shop and pick up one of the fliers pictured above for 2 for 1 admission! Visit www.dicklanevelodrome.com for more info.
We had a rare bird stop by the shop yesterday. It was a Koga Miyata mountain bike of yesteryear, rolling with pure style, yet it was lacking a final fat facet…
This steed is still a work in progress but now one, well two, steps closer to completion. The Fat Franks really set this beast off! Go here for more photos.
Seth brought his latest track frame by. Also fillet brazed and built for speed. Go here for more photos.
