Bike ride activity completed. It's a lot harder riding 20 miles off road than on. FYI

Sad. I leave for an hour, and they blow a nice lead and the momentum. Sad cows.

Some great college football already.

Discuss.

One of Knoxville's oldest family-owned businesses is closing its doors after pandemic hardships. Greenlee is the second-oldest bike shop in the United States, dating back to 1899.

Those handlebars in the hot deals thread are a killer price. I thank that same thread for my Easton E100 bars a couple years back.

Always been curios - what do such gigs pay?

They said they couldn't get tyres and such.

Guess I should've quoted where they moaned about their labour woes

Trust me, it's in there

That's about 3x what I'm willing to pay for bars. But I don't doubt it's a deal.

I got my Easton crabons for a little less than a third of that.

When they were blowing out the olde round section EC90s - they don't even have cable grooves!

I've never been there, but it doesn't appear to be a very serious bike shoppe (2nd oldest in America?).

Just wondering if the supply issues are the same/better/worse than six months ago.

I wouldn't be surprised, at all. It seems as if workers are penalized for taking jobs of special interest and/or skill-set; I wouldn't go so far as to say it's a prestige pay-cut, but it's not far off. That's pretty sad, considering that drone workers, whether it's at a fast food joint or a big box store, seem to be starting at $15+/hr these days. Crazy.
