We stumbled upon this gem a couple weeks ago. Serotta may be gone but impeccable samples still exist. This is among them. Built with the fabulous Colorado Concept tubeset designed by Reynolds for Serotta this gal is dressed to impress. Handmade in Colorado. Stop in and check her out. In the meantime, enjoy:
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:

Friend of the shop Jonathon Morrell got a bit inspired by the cicadas and decided to snap a few photos and write a little summary.
Attack of the (Briefly) Living Cicadas!
We’ve been invaded! Tiny, flight-challenged, disoriented, winged creatures have descended on Middle Tennessee by the millions. With the menacing title of Brood X!X, these little guys and gals have flexed their collective muscles throughout our area and there is literally no place to hide. Luckily, they should all be gone in a few months, but until then…we all may get a few hop-ons as we pedal along our way. Here are a few pics from the series “The Cicada and the Huffy.”
I love Science Friday. If your a nerd like me you’ll love these guys. This latest post they made is too cool.
Yay Science Friday!
