Every so often we get to work on a build that's so detailed and so precise, and takes advantage of the latest technologies not only in the bike industry but across all industries. Here are some go fast goodies that we're putting together on a new build for Emmanuel Lopez. Thought that last bike he had was hot? Wait until you see what's coming next! ... See MoreSee Less
Chloe is one of the nicest, sweetest, and smartest 11yo I know and to celebrate her second year in the double digits, she wanted a bicycle! If you know her parents Javi & Lisa, her enthusiasm for riding will come at no surprise to you, all the Cavazos' are super athletes and super awesome people as well. We've known Chloe for many years and look forward to seeing her grow in the sport... and rip through the trails on her new bike as well! ... See MoreSee Less
Less than 10hrs before my flight to wrench for Team USA at ITU Worlds, my Dad and I finish my traveling toolbox which has been months in the making. I've had many toolboxes/bags that I've used over the years at different events, but it was time to up my game!
This project started off with an old worn out toolbag and a donated Pelican Case from a good buddy. Every nut, bolt and stitch is custom on this new case. And these aren't your normal run-of-the-mill tools either.
From Abbey Bike Tools, to Park & Pedros, Shimano & Campy, Swiss, Snap-on, Craftman, & Harbor Freight. I've included all my favorite tools from various makers that I feel are the absolute best and suit our racing bikes. I'm excited to put them into action this weekend! ... See MoreSee Less
We all know and love this lady. She has been part of our cycling community for many years now, and I remember the day like yesterday when she came in to purchase her first "real" road bike. Jo Lynn Majors Hasler is a pleasure to be around, always a positive person and it's been a blessing to be part of her journey as a cyclist. It seems like she went from riding a hybrid to riding 1200+ miles at last years Tour de 5am, overnight. You won't find another P2 in blue either! It was a custom job finished w/ the help of Michael Castillo at RGV Print Depot. The HED Cycling Wheels also top off the package nicely. Good luck Jo Lynn, we look forward to seeing you out on the road! ... See MoreSee Less

The only thing cooler than being an official mechanic for Team USA at the 2016 ITU Long Distance World Championships is all the official cool team gear that goes along with it!
I'm excited at the opportunity to wrench for the USA squad and will hopefully be finishing up a new travel toolbox (to replace my old tired backpack) in the next week or so. I'll post more photos of that project as it progresses too. Stay tuned! ... See MoreSee Less
Robert de León was looking for a two wheeled companion. Something light, something reliable and of course the price had to be right too. After taking more than a few bikes on test rides from various brands, he settled on the Cannondale Catalyst. And it looks like he didn't waste anytime taking it on it's first adventure either! Best of luck, Robert! ... See MoreSee Less
Our shop is adamant about providing a SAG Wagon on every-single-shop-ride. It's an extra layer of protection as we ride and a great resource for the riders. Whether it's hitching a ride back to the shop or simply getting a bottle of water, we've all used it. We'll be handing out (water-proof!) cards w/ the Shop-Van's number to riders from now on at the beginning of each ride.
It's impossible for us to watch over ALL the riders at one time, but now you know we'll always be within reach. A ginormous thank you to Michael Castillo over at RGV Print Depot for helping us get these printed for our riders.
