White Rim in a Day!

Well it was quite a punishing ride to do the White Rim in a day, maybe it was the 40-50 mph winds that pushed us off the trail, literally, that made us go so slow. With an average speed of under ten mph we definitely earned our beer after the ride. It took us approx. 14 1/2 hours of total time to ride from our camp at Mineral bottom back to camp where our beer was super cold, maybe cause it was snowing on us when we arrived back at camp. Pictures to come. niRad

White Rim in a Day!?

Plannin' on a nice ride on sunday with some friends, heading out to Moab area to ride the White Rim Trail (approx. 105 miles or so). Hopefully the weather holds out for us as it is supposed to be windy with some of the gusts topping out at 55 mph, ugh! Well at least I only have one gear so I can only go so fast, I guess:) niRad

Calling ALL stomPAZ!!!

The Gear Exchange needs your help. I know we are the fancy smancy shop like our good friend Hallencrack works in. and no we don't have all the sweet new carbon what-have-yous. What we do have is the best selection of cruisers and USED equipment from here to TIMbuckTOO!

The Gear Exchange is needing help from our fellow stompa friends to man our great shop. Darin and myself, Deveroe, will be traveling a fair amount this coming biking season to the Mountain States Cup races and we need fill in help. No we don't expect you to be a master wheel builder, or know how to rebuild a Shimano 333. All we need is a warm body and smiling face to help KENdoll and his fine young daughter Cody in the shop while us monkeys are out playing. Who knows, you may even learn something! (Education not guaranteed)

The shop is prepared to offer discounts on bikes, parts and services for your help. And you can always count on a sweet sweet colder than warm beer whenever your little heart desires. An occasional lunch is not unheard of either. SO, if this creates even the smallest spark in your little never not stomping heart, please do stop on by, and let's talk over a cold PBR. (We prefer to not answer our phone!)

Travis Pastrana has a new sport

Good 'ol Travis is a master at flipping his bike off big ramps, this is probable the smallest trike he's ever attempted over a pretty nice jump. niRad
