Make it Awesome

We love our job. Not only that, we love our shop. The motto around the shop is "Make it Awesome", so Sean and I (Amanda) decided to take it to the next level and put that motto into our skin. Forever.

Future Kyle's bike

I saw this beauty outside the grocery store and made my girlfriend wait while I took a couple of pictures. Classic.

Brothers from another mother

Ross Evans, founder of Xtracycle, came into the shop today. He is good buds with Nick. I am told they are kindred spirits and seeing these two geek out on bike stuff I can see how true that is.

Atlin loves to hit it from the back.

Bad Toe

Kato has a hurt paw. We feel for you, big guy.

The sweetest Gitchell of them all

I'm sure I don't have to tell you how awesome Steve Gitchell is. Just in case you are out of the loop and/or have been living under a rock, I'll tell you.... he is cooler then we could ever hope to be. Today, he said he's sick of coming into our bike shop and not seeing a picture of Eddy Merckx, so he (being a man of action) brought in a signed picture of the Cannibal himself.
Best. Ever.

Canadians know how to party

A few of our neighbors to the north stopped in and hung out with us. They told us of their wee one's favorite jam so we put it on and he started to get down.

Sorry for the neglect

Dear Blog,
I am so sorry we haven't had time to pay attention to you like you deserve. We were just hard at work trying to keep our customers stoked, but I know that's no excuse. We will try harder. Please don't break up with us. We'll change.

See? Hard at work.

Friday, July 9, 2010 where you go to play

Have fun on your trip, Park. We, your awesome employees, will miss you. Don't go changing.

I am going Dough NUTS

So this is how my summer has been going. Truly in the last three days two big boxes of doughnuts haves showed up at the shop. Being that the majority of our employees are vegan and that 100% of the recent doughnut haul has had some sort of animal ancestry it has been left up to Nick and I to take down these beasts. Except Nick wasn't working when the last batch landed in the shop, and then there was one. Doughnuts as we all know are best when fresh so rather than allow these fried sugar delights depreciate in culinary value it was up to me to take care of the first box. Remember there is a reason why day old doughnuts are so cheap, its because they are tired. Thanks to an end of June summer sunshine fest I was able to justify this surprise jump in fried food intake. That and a complete disregard for the future of my health. I am not trying to scare off the doughnut angels out there, I applaud you and more than anything I would like to be able to share my doughnut eating experience with the whole of my cohort. If you are thinking, "Damn that 21st Avenue Bicycles is so G.D. Rad I want to bring them in some doughnuts" please do just make sure you go vegan, because most of us are trying to do our part. K
