New Tour Easy

Back in the shop after a long hiatus is an Easy Racers Tour Easy Adventure -expedition in custom color prismatic-transparent green.  Yes custom color means higher price but to be set apart from the crowd sometimes ya just gotta spring for the big bucks. It's equipped with full fenders, bottle cages, Schwalbe Marathon tires. This expedition model has the speed and sport gearing but expedition tires and wheels for more versatile riding conditions.  Change the tires to Duranos and get the speed of the full on speed and sport. Come on in and check it out.  It's size is medium and adjustable.

     Thanks to all the folks who came out on a beautiful day in May to celebrate the opening of the Dunnellon trail and bridge over the Withlacoochee River which will soon be connected to the Withlacoochee trail closing the gaps to make a continuous series of trails from coast to coast.  Such a big boost for eco tourism and revenue for the state of Florida, and making it safer to get around on a bike. 
     We just signed up for the Tour de Melon June 7th which takes place on the Nature Coast trail in Chiefland.  Getting new tires on the Airstream even though the ones on it look good but getting to that 5 year old mark so off they go.  Impossible to find tires not made in China anymore and believe me, I've looked and researched online till my eyes crossed.  Decided to go with Maxis, hey they make nice bike tires and get good ratings on all of the forums.  So we're taking the camper on a shake down to Chiefland for a few days, kind of getting ready for summer.

A few new messages

A few new messages for spring, now that the weather is about to change and start getting hotter.  Our summer will start with checking off a bucket list wish, doing RAGBRAI.  Then north to MN to ride their trails and on to who knows where. I sometimes envy people who have everything planned out, but even the best of plans can be subverted, so we just bob around having adventure where ever we find it.
      A note of a few good deals at the shop.  We have a 2014 Catrike Road used as a model in a photo shoot in electric blue with a rack for 2525. Also a Pocket in saber green for 1900. These are new trikes with full warranty. Another is a slightly used by Paulo, owner of  catrike, 700 with 16" wheels in front for 2100. Also discount pricing on Trident stowaway and Transport.
      Sitting out in the back yard watching the birds and noticing how the blue bird shares it's worms with cardinals but chases away the red wing blackbirds and thrushes.  I guess he knows the cardinals are not pigs.  Thats all folks, time for a bike ride.
