SLC local marketing new bicycle light system

Sperm bikes

Story on Pashley the oldest British bike manufacturer

According to NOAA, over half the USA population lives within 50 miles of an ocean.  Could wave (moon) power be the next sustainable resource.

The Wood Shop

You might know Cam Wood from his 50/50 BMX days and his stellar segment in That's It! (and watched him gimping around at the premier):

As I reported, the Utah BMX Cobras have a new vid coming out, but that's not all Cam has been up to. Ladies and gentleman of SLC (actually SSLC) we finally have a BMX specialty store, Cam's The Wood Shop, located at 2212 S. West Temple, just up the street from the SLC Bike Collective:

The shop features a nice selection of completes, just in time for the holidays:

Plenty of frames, forks and tires:

Head on over to The Wood Shop to support this great rider and our awesome local scene.  See you at the Tower Theater.
