Greetings from a rainy Philadelphia. We got a great MTB ride in last night just before it started pouring, but it looks like it will be the last one for a few days if this keeps up. Sad. Since I haven’t built up my own MTB yet I have been riding Richie’s custom Elite Cortez (the bicycle that is named after him) which can be seen in the gallery here: http://www.elitebicycles.com/gallery/index.php?gallery=spec. It is a beautiful bike, and rides like a dream.

Today we have got Elite Bicycles rider of the month and sexy police officer Gwen Phillips in for a little tune up and to check out a new saddle. Gwen took a little spill recently, and we want to make sure she is all set for her upcoming Ironman.

We will also have Ralph Loveys in today for some brand new Zipp VumaQuad cranks with ceramic bottom bracket. These things are beautiful, check them out at Zipp’s site http://zipp.com/.

Joining Ralph is his main squeeze, Penny Taylor, who will be the recipient of her very own Elite Bicycles biomechanical bicycle positioning. We always love welcoming a new face to the family, so we’re excited to have Penny in. For more info on our fitting process check out the fit section of our website here http://www.elitebicycles.com/tech_fit.php

Brian Sheehan was in yesterday from NYC to pick up his brand new Elite Magnus triathlon bike. Brian also picked up some of our Elite Bicycles aero race wheels for his speed machine. For more info on our wheels czech them out here: http://www.elitebicycles.com/wheel_detail.php?id=4

We are also working on getting all of the details set for our trip to Las Vegas next month for Interbike. Interbike is North America’s largest bicycle trade event and show. The event draws over 20,000 visitors, and allows manufacturers to introduce new product to industry insiders, reps, and retail clients. If you are interested in attending check out their website at http://www.interbike.com/ . There is also a huge cross race called CrossVegas that drew Lance Armstrong last year, and an industry cup in which our own Keith Hatton will be competing. We will take tons of pictures and I will post a bunch of stuff about the show when we get back.

  1. oohh, Magalie wooo, I miss my little gooshee goo.I am however very happy to see his cute face even if its in the context of the bike named after him. http://www.elitebicycles.com/bike_detail_tri.php?id=magnus perhaps one day I will find the right dog to fill his big paw prints and my broken heart.

  2. Broke out of the house predawn for a road test of the new Magnus. Its always a good thing when the perceived effort goes down and speed up!!! Thanks for putting a face with the name.

  3. Magnus was THE CUTEST!!!!!! He would always wander to the fit stand and put his head on my lap almost like saying – pat me pat me

  4. Thanks for the tune up Keith. New saddle feels good so far Dave. Just have to try it out on the road. My busted arm is feeling better but still can’t put much pressure on it. 2 weeks until IMKY!!! I’m sure I’ll stop by once more before the big day. Thanks for everything guys!
