We are getting out of town! and Cyclocross is coming!

It's that time of year again, for all the bike nerds of America to make their annual pilgrimage to Vegas to attend Interbike.

However, since we are sick of Vegas, and Interbike, we're going to close up shop and actually go RIDE BIKES!  It's amazing, I know. Then we will spend the weeks after Interbike scouring all the bike-porn websites out there to see everything cool at the show that we need to know about.
So, to make a short story long....

WE WILL BE CLOSED FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 28 THROUGH MONDAY OCTOBER 1.
WE WILL RE OPEN FOR NORMAL HOURS ON TUESDAY, OCTOBER 2, AT 10AM.

The Bikeworks crew will be up in Durango for a long weekend of mountain biking, and some much needed time away from work after what has been a very busy (thanks!) summer.

In other news, the Albuquerque 'cross season is about to start.  This Tuesday you can find an informal, CX practice "ride" (it's not a race, and it doesn't cost money) at Pine Flats at 6:10pm.  You may find the Bikeworks crew there as well, or we may not make it, you never know.  Flyer is here...

And for the rest of the info on the formal cross race series in our area, check out the DASH website, here...

Well, that's about all I know. Thanks!

Scalo Veloce Bike Swap this Saturday

Hey, the good fellas with the Scalo Veloce racing team are having a bike swap this Saturday, September 8th on the patio of Scalo restaurant in Nob Hill.


$30 will get you a table (that you will attend yourself), and you get to keep all the money from your sales, simple as that.  Bikeworks will be there with all sorts of stuff and things that we don't want in the shop any longer and are willing to get rid of on the cheap.

In other news, have you noticed that cross season is coming? We have.  With 5 or 6 cross bike builds going on last week and now, its starting to look like a big race season this year.  Personally, I just hopped up my new Indy Fab Planet X with some Paul Mini Moto brakes, and suddenly I can't believe I ever rode with cantis.


In closing, if anybody asks, just go ahead and tell them that New Mexico is all desert and not to bother coming here.  That'll help keep our trails nice and free of traffic. Okay? Great, thanks.
