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.
Long time no hear..
I am excited to announce we are an Auhtorized Oakley Dealer as of today! It was a long strange trip but Oakley was one of the few brands that I knew I wanted to sell at the shop. As most of you may know I will only sell products in Velo Hangar that I use and will stand behind the product 100%. Really excited to add Oakley to our brands!! Although I haven’t placed my first order, if anyone needs to order a gift or stocking stuffer ground shipping from Oakley HQ is 1 day.
We have also picked up Clement Tires. Elliot and I have been trying out a few different models from their line and we are very impressed. Tread patterns are fast, sidewalls on the clinchers are pretty tough & the tubulars are tubeless (so no pinch flats!). I have the X’PLOR clinchers, MXP, PDX & LAS tubulars in stock. Come by and check them out!
Last but not least I brought in Lezyne LED lights. Hands down the best LED high powered lights I have come across. CNC Aluminum, rechargeable & full of tech goodness! We have sold through a few orders so far. These would be a great Holiday present!!
We have received our shipments of Carbo-Pro, more Continental 25mm tires, our 2012 Velo Hangar Team Socks & last but not least the 2012 Velo Hangar Team kits!
Stoked. They look great!
The party was a great success. If that was any indication of what Velo Hangar is/will be? Sign me up. Pinata’s, Good food, Ice Cream, Mariachi, 3 kegs… Doesn’t get much better. Stoked to see the kids having a blast as well. We were absolutely amazed at the crowd that came, so if you made it, Thank You! We’ll start planning the next shindig…
