One of the best things about a bicycle is the different places it can take you. Whether on a long self-supported tour through South America or for a weekend out east, a bike is simply one of the best tools for exploring the world around us.


John’s new touring bike is both comfortable and reliable; perfect for long rides through remote locales. The bar end shifters provide consistent shifts and the Shimano 105 drivetrain is reliable and boasts a wide gearing range suited for both long grinding hills and quick descents. The Avid BB7 disc brakes provide surefire braking in all conditions and the Tubus racks will allow John to carry large panniers loaded with clothes and equipment.


James’ new Ti S&S coupling equipped road bike is a travel bike of another sort. Perfect for bringing along on a business trip or for a spur of the moment weekend escape; the great thing about S&S coupling equipped bike is that it can be packed up into a bag small enough to avoid excess airline luggage charges. This bike features a Campagnolo Chorus 11 gruppo, an Eriksen ‘Sweet Post”, Enve Fork and Campagnolo Zonda wheels.


Every fall, members of cycling industry meet at various trade shows around North America. This year Shimano decided that it wanted a unique manner in which to provide all of their industry friends with a cold refreshment at the end of a long day on the show floor.We worked with Shimano Marketing and Technical Specialist Ben Pye to create the perfect solution. Ben stopped by the other to pick up the new Shimano Beer Delivery Bike and judging by the smile on his face, I think he’s happy with his new bike. This bike features lot of the latest Shimano and Pro components and just in case you were wondering, that is a Dura Ace 7900 handle for the tap; I think the Campagnolo corkscrew may have just met it’s match!
