It’s that time and we have something to contribute. This particular bike appears to be a very early ’86 Corsa Extra in the famed Panasonic livery. The seat tube is 60cm c-c with a 58cm top tube. Come touch it in person (we are closed Mondays in honor of Eddy).

In an effort to elevate our reach to you, we’ll be posting far more frequently on this site as well as our various social media outlets. Follow us on Twitter and Instagram and/or like us on Facebook. In the meantime we’re highlighting some of the exciting builds we have on hand at the moment.
To start, this Basso Gap (57cm) appears to be a 1990 model. 1990 was a good year. MC Hammer stole our hearts with Please Hammer, Don’t Hurt ‘Em and Marion Barry pulled a Rob Ford (kind of) before Rob Ford knew he was going to pull a Rob Ford (weird how that works). Anyway, this bike is pretty legit. Speaking of Mr. Barry, this bike is fast–like kick down your door in a D.C. hotel room FBI sting operation fast. To be clear, this bike is legal in all 50 states, made in Italy from Columbus SLX pipes and ready to jam. In case you didn’t notice, it’s pink and green–classic–1908 Howard University classic. Really though, in all the advances the bike industry has made, one area we’ve clearly declined is our willingness to use the entire color palette . We just don’t do it like we did in the 90’s. Anyway, enough banter, check the bike out. We’ll call her watermelon. It’s summer, watermelons are the summer fruit and this is your summer bike:

This is gonna be just a bit tough y’all. There is an empty field that belongs to the park system at the south west corner of Clayton and Grannywhite. This is not a designated parking lot but we have heard that folks will be parking there. If that is full then simply find a parking spot somewhere in the neighborhood. This shouldnt be too much of an issue but Rememer that this race does coincide with Sevierparkfest.com so just plan a head and give yourself ample time to find your spot.
Day of Registration:
This will be held at the south east pavilion right smack between the playground and the new park community center. We will be there and ready for y’all at 6:30 a.m.
Start Finish line will be on Clayton ave and the race will be going Clockwise around the perimeter of Sevier Park ( Clayton to 12 South to Kirkwood to Lealand). We have double lane closure for a wide open course.
Right here at Halcyon Bike Shop! 2802 12th ave south.
