Beautiful Night Moves.

August 27, 2014

Image

Last Friday, Jeff treated us to a Bandit Cross: Night Moves race in the Minnehaha dog park. What I appreciated about last Friday (and local Night Cross races also) aside from the absolutely perfect weather was that the crowd was local. Don’t get me wrong… I love out of town guests. We roll out The Good Party when you all visit, we do. But it’s been an extremely guest-heavy summer and it was nice to hang with Minneapolis’ Finest in the middle of the woods during the brief lull between All-City Championships and NACCCs (which starts tomorrow… oh god it starts tomorrow).

Yep, we've got a new t-shirt and it might just be the best one yet. The photo comes from a shoot that Saisha did in January of this year for booth graphics for our Frostbike booth.

After doing some googling and driving around on back roads for a few hours we found it. Here is the photo graphic evidence.

Summer Vacation Photos

August 18, 2014

Image

I realized that I've been doing a poor job this summer of more personal blog posts, not that you're all on pins and needles or anything wondering what exactly Jeffy has been doing with his summer, but it's always fun for us to share what it is we do in our personal (non AC) lives, so you can get to know us and thus some of the reasons we do what we do and make what we make. We'll confine this post to the last few weeks, post our 2015 street launch at Saddle Drive.
