GoPro contacted us wanting to film a bike being built from the frame up. Of course the answer was yes, we love building bikes! The bike in question is Todd Ballard’s 2014 Specialized Tarmac SL4 with Shimano Dura Ace 11s. Great build, great vid & a great time! Todd makes an appearance at the end riding up to Double Peak Park in San Marcos, CA.
Thanks to everyone at GoPro, Specialized & Shimano for making this happen!
This weekend I am traveling north to pick up my Marcelo. A piece of tangible art that I have wanted to own/ride for years. Ordered a year ago, built to my sizing, painted in a one of a kind motif… This is a very special trip.
On Sunday 7th July 2013 join thousands of women around the world to ride 100km. The aim is to create a global event, with thousands of women taking to the road to complete a 100km journey. The 7th July is the date of the Etape du Tour, the amateur cyclist’s chance to ride a major mountain stage of the 100th edition of the Tour de France. Rapha are sending 100 women to ride the sportive, which will form part of the day’s festival of riding. The Rapha Women’s 100 is not a competition to see who is the fastest, it is about gathering a global community of women around the world to take part in this shared adventure.

We will be serving beverages including custom Margaritas & snacks. Lots of Raffle items and door prizes!
Last year was a blast! Hope you all can make it!!
Not many can say this, much less relate, but I can’t wait to get back to Velo Hangar. It’s not that I’m worried about what may have happened while I was gone, I’m not. I have a wonderful, under appreciated, knowledgeable team at VH. I’m sure Laurel & Matt had a great week! ( especially being Gordon free..). It’s more about what Velo Hangar is to me. It’s not just a bike shop, it’s not just my workplace, in a way it’s my “family”. Sounds weird I know.
When friends go out of town wether its overnight or for a few days, they miss their kids & family. I might not have a wife & kids but I do have Velo Hangar. You guys are my family.
I’m back in the shop tomorrow & honestly I can’t wait to see each and every one of you..
Thank you for the VH love!
