Monster Track 8

This weekend saw the running of the fixed with MonsterTrack 8! Laek House was proud/honored to help support this rendition of the 2007 race.

We get a lot of requests from races being put together around the country (and a few from the UK) and haven't really had a chance to put as much support as we'd like behind the local scene. The moment we saw that MT8 was in motion, we motivated to contact the organizers and got some gear into the right hands. I wasn't there for the awards or the after-party due to familial obligations, but I hope everything went out okay.

Thanks to Victor for being the central figure in the production!


We're in Road Magazine!

One of Laek House's ELVS shirts is featured in the March 2007 (#28) issue of Road Magazine. Page 82! Thanks to Neil and Tim!

I'll post a scan as soon as I can dig one up.

Bike Polo = Awesome


Newest Awesome award goes to Bike Polo!


After two weeks of being a spectator on the court, I stepped up and into a game. I was a nervous at first and totally awkward (my dominant hand held the mallet and I had to steer/brake with my right hand) and took my share of spills. But you know what? I'm going to build a mallet later today when I take a break from redesigning the site and putting together the spring tees. Many thanks to John Birdseye for lending me a mallet!

PS I am ever so upset that I missed Los Marcos. Their Hawk was there, but they never showed...

Freebie Stickers

Free Stickers with an SASE or a meeting!

So, I had a bunch of stickers printed that say "This bike is " in the same font as the notoriously misunderstood "This bike is a pipebomb" band stickers. You might recall, some poor college kid had his bike eradicated by the local Police because they thought the sticker was literal! That sucked for everyone involved, but I understand he got a new bike in the end.
Thanks to Chombs for handling the graphics!
