Velo Hangar/ Elliot Reinecke Racing

Many of you know and love Elliot Reinecke. He will be racing the Pro MTB circuit this year. Sponsored by Focus Bicycles, Giro, ENVE & Velo Hangar, we wanted to design a special kit for him. The Maryland flag is ghost printed in the background. The kit is available in Men’s & Women’s and arm warmer’s plus knee warmer’s. Proceeds go to help Elliot in his racing season (entrance fees, transportation, etc) Go to http://elliot.ridesquadra.com/

GoPro visits Velo Hangar…

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!

Of Steel

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.

GiveMe3 Campaign…

This message is on behalf of our friends at the California Bicycle Coalition.

GiveMe3 is CalBike’s campaign to get drivers to give a safe three feet of clearance when passing a bicyclist. Assembly Bill 1371 amends the Vehicle Code to specify three feet as the safe passing distance. Twenty-one other states have enacted similar legislation. Tell Governor Brown it’s time California do the same!

Over forty percent of fatal bike crashes are caused by motorists passing unsafely. And yet, Governor Brown vetoed our previous two “3 foot” bills. With your help today, the third time could be the charm. Please send this email urging Governor Jerry Brown to sign AB 1371, and require California drivers to give a safe distance when they pass you on your bicycle. 

Thank you for your help putting grassroots pressure on Governor Brown today to make our streets safer for us all.

Randomness, if that’s a word.

New Products

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!!

New Product in this week!

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!
