EighthInch Amelia Wheel Restock (With A New Color)

Mondays are busy enough as it is but today we added to the chaos of receiving a container filled with Amelia wheelsets. We restocked black, white, silver, and green wheelsets along with our new color gold. Not only did we add a new color but we are also offering the white Amelia’s with a machined front/non-machined rear option. All of the Amelia wheelsets come with tubes,tires, and rim strips installed and a cog and lockring all for $119.50! Stop by Cycling Closeouts and pick a pair up!

Scramblers Are Here!!!

It’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for. Scramblers are here and checked in. The first of the pre-orders will start going out shortly. We’ll have more photos to come but first things first.The white ones look really nice. Stickers come with them but you can choose to apply them or keep the frame bare.

A Lesson in Sea Containers

We learned a very valuable lesson today. Sea containers don’t come with your order packed on pallets. So when our first container came today stacked 40ft deep and too the ceiling we had a lot to unload by hand. This coincides great with the string of 90 degree days we’ve been having. The good news is that its all done and now it’s on the photo booth. I’ve looked at a few things so far and they all look great. Here’s a rundown of everything that came in.

  • track bars
  • bullhorn bars
  • Tessa wheelsets
  • cranks
  • chainrings
  • cogs
  • lockrings
  • tools

It’s a little bit of everything. Most of the parts have a pretty good color selection too. Here’s a few pictures of the day’s events so far and a few product shots. I’m going to spend the rest of today snapping pictures and hopefully we’ll have these parts listed for sale in the next few days.

Poll of the Week: 2009 Predictions

2008 came and went and I think the general consensus here is that white turned out to be the color of the year for fixed gear parts. We were wondering what you guys and gals thought would be the big color in 2009. We’ve seen a few color options pick up over the past month, but lets see what you think will be the next big thing will be!

Just in this last week is a tall stack of White Vittoria Randonneur’s. It’s a 700cx28 tire perfect for rough urban commuting or touring. The extra width gives a nice bit of cushion and it offers a built in puncture resistant belt. Click on the picture to see them in the store.
