We are starting a new series called Bike in the Window. The Window is reserved for our most beloved bikes- we have already had some beauts up there, including our friend Kim’s Chris Kvale and our friend David’s Bridgestone track bike.
Currently in the window is this amazing Waterford. It features full Dura-Ace components, Chris King headset, Ritchey stem, seatpost and handlebars, and a beautiful custom paint job. It is 58 cm seat tube/54 cm top tube.. Oh, and did I mention, it only has FIFTY MILES on it??? Yes, please.

Daaaaaaaaaaaaaaang. The Firemans Texas Cruzer brings old school BMX into the present day. Based out of Austin, TX, the company has been hand building 24″, 26″, and 29″ BMX bikes out of 4130 Chromoly steel since 1998. And Halcyon has two of these beautiful, bad boys in stock right now!
First up is this 26″ raw steel TIG welded single speed BMX Cruzer. Comes with a Chris King anondized headset, Profile crank, Profile hubs and Profile stem. Plus, it comes certified by Johnny Cash. This bike will surely be the most fun ride in town.
Next is another 26″ single speed BMX Cruzer. Just like the above bike, this guy was hand built and boosts beautiful welding. We highly recommend that you come test ride one or both of the Cruzers to experience just how rad they are.

It is amazing outside, and we couldn’t be happier because today is the Bike for Branches ride! Our friend Thomas has done an amazing job organizing this ride, which takes riders past some of Nashville’s most beautiful and oldest trees. The coolest part is that all proceeds go to planting more TREES! Making Nashville even greener.
If you can make it down there, the ride starts at 3pm in Sevier Park. There will be a big afterparty at 12 South Taproom with New Belgium beer, food, and bands that will kick off at 5pm. Check out the Bike for Branches website for more info.
We hope that the Bike Film Festival in Memphis is ruling- a big ol’ group of Nashville cyclists headed west yesterday to enjoy the weekend of films, riding, and celebrations. Y’all have fun for those of us who had to stay back in Nashville.
Heads up that Tuesday will be our SIX MONTH BIRTHDAY! No plans for a party just yet, but come by the shop and say hi, it is definitely a day to celebrate!
