Yet More Bike Stuff

Been to two shops lately that were new to me — Behind Bars (warning: all Flash) and Angry Catfish (warning: awesome). Both are deviations from the usual type of shop I frequent. I’ll admit that I’m typically found at “corporate” bike shops — Penn Cycle (I worked there) and Freewheel I’m at frequently. Anyway, I really liked both shops. No high-pressure salespeople who were up my butt with a microscope the moment I walked in, nice variety of stuff that wasn’t what you see in the larger shops (no Trek or Specialized or Giant). Chill. And interesting people working there.

I’m about to make big parts orders from Henry James, Paragon, and Nova this afternoon. Everything I need to build my brother’s frame.

Life is good.
