Einstein CyclesOur new structure at the shop serves as a fitting room, employee housing and.....a time machine! We went back to 1986 to steal gold chains from Mr. T for tomorrow's Fat Camp! race. This video took over three minutes to shoot.

Einstein CyclesFolks, in the interest of peace and prosperity, we are rescheduling the finale until next week. It will also give us even more time to cook. We just don't want to do anything to the trail today that can't be undone in the next few weeks. Sorry for any inconvenience, but we hope you understand. See you at Fat Camp! tomorrow!

Einstein CyclesSalsa Cycles's Warbird Ti is at the shop. Forged in the fires of Mt. Doom and cooled in the sweat of a thousand gravel rides, it's now in the capable hands of Eric for races like Barry-Roubaix, Lowell 50 and the most important race of all...the woke-up-ten-minutes-late sprint to work. Stop by and check out the Warbird and all the gravel bikes at Ec.

Einstein CyclesHey gang, a few people have called the shop asking about the plan for tomorrow. We are going to wait to make the call by 3ish tomorrow. If it's raining, it's a no go. If it's snowing, sure. We will rely on word from the trail to make our plans. The weather is currently expected to be 38 with a 50% chance of snow. Let's see what happens!

Einstein Cycles"Hanging with Mr. Cooper" would have last longer than 5 seasons if they would have added a hanging bike aspect to the show! Two-part contest time: Name at least three characters from the hit TV show, AND guess how many hooks we have to hang bikes from at the shop. Winner gets a 4 month old issue of Peloton Magazine because Cody is still reading the other ones. Contest ends tomorrow at 10am.

Einstein CyclesOur efforts for St. Baldricks Day just got a serious boost of awesome. Our wonderful mechanic, Natron, is donating 12 inches of his beautiful hair to Locks of Love. He's been growing his hair out for over 3 years, and is finally ready to shave his dome for this deserving cause. Please donate to thank Natron for this very big show of class from one of the most caring human beings you'll ever meet. http://www.stbaldricks.org/teams/mypage/91099/2014

Einstein CyclesWe're in the homestretch of our world class renovation. Boss Man has decided to bring in the Bob Ross to finish of our painting. The shop has commissioned a store-wide mural of "happy little trees" and probably some "happy little bike riders", too. The lounge, water slide, Hi-C water fountain and in-house Swedish masseuse (Magnus) will be ready by Wednesday! Stop by tomorrow if you want to help out and say hello.

Einstein CyclesEc will be partially open today as we continue our ceiling project. Despite whatever rumors you may have heard, we are NOT building a Death Star. Swearsies. We'll be closed to the public today. If there's an emergency, call and make sure we are here. And just how adorable is this mouse drawing, right?

Einstein CyclesIf there's one thing we love just a few days before Valentine's Day, it's carbon fat bike frames from Borealis. Give her what she really wants; a bike that is light as yours, you selfish barbarian. You can keep the hat, though.
