A good customer of the shop, Chris, just got his new Surly Krampus in. He’s stoked to add a new bike to the stable and we’re stoked to see someone make the ginormo tires look proportional.
We just built this Big Dummy up for a long-time customer. It was built up with the express purpose of hauling kids around safely and comfortably– as well as replacing the family minivan. The build started with a complete Big Dummy from Surly then we upgraded the P-racks from Xtracycle with their heavy duty versions to better handle the load of two kids and their bikes. Over all the build finished nicely with a Yepp PeaPod III kids seat– it is easily the most elegant design of a child’s seat I’ve seen in a while.
As a whole, bike builds like this are what get us really excited. The movement towards families commuting by bike is still new in Atlanta, but when we build a bike like this we realize that there is a real shift happening in our city now! It is awesome!

It’s cyclocross season and with the Georgia Cross Series wrapped up and the Rome series and Worlds around the corner. We’re hosting the fourth annual Alley Cross Race here at LNC presented by No Hipster Left Behind and Kyle setting another great course.
If you’ve raced before, expect more of the same great mix of city streets and unpaved back roads, and if you haven’t be sure to come out and see what all the hype is about. Either way come out to race, compete, drink a beer (we’ll have a keg on hand for those that have a thirst) and hang out here at the shop. It’ll be a party.
You can find the race and the latest route on Facebook here.
It’s $5 to race which goes into a cash pot to be divvied out to the top racers. The race starts at noon on January 12th but be sure to get here early to talk shop and stock up on race supplies.
Hope to see you all here come race day.
