Today's Totally Awesome Bike Item is...

the "SHIFT" bike which was created by an industrial design professor at Purdue and two of his students. Basically, the 16-inch-wheel bicycle looks like a tricycle, but as the child gains momentum and learns to balance, the two rear wheels shift inward to merge into one wheel. This causes the balance to gradually shift from the bicycle to the child. Talk about Genius! My daughter NEEDS one of these!

An attitude to live by:

"I haven't looked at the Dow in more than six months and still can't bring myself to open my end-of-year 401(k) statement. Yet there are numbers I am increasingly interested in, ones that I know I can directly influence: miles, hours, watts, heart rate at threshold. If these numbers improve, so will my life, regardless of whatever else is happening."

The best picture of me on a bike yet...hands down!!

Epic Bikes Has Moved!

Come on by and visit Tim and Mike at their new Epic Bikes location - 1993 Jonesboro Rd in the old Grand Harbor Imports store.

The new location is beautiful! Lots of great space for even more inventory, a bigger shop for the boys to play in and the coolest toilet you've ever seen (Thanks TOTO!).
