Do you remember this bike? The bike Lance is holding was used at the Indianapolis for the "Race to Replace". Look at what we have here in the store...

When you walk in you will see the actual bike that Lance Armstrong was holding at the "Race to Replace". As you can see Lance Armstrong has autographed the frame along with Indy car driver P.J. Chesson. How cool is that?

We will be raffling this bike at the end of the year. Each raffle ticket will cost $5 or 5 for $20. The more you buy the better your chance for winning. All proceeds from the raffle will go the LiveStrong Foundation.

Drawing for a Lance Armstrong Autographed Jersey

That's right, we have in our possession a Discovery Jersey signed by the man himself, Lance Armstrong. For a donation of $2 your name will be put in the jar. At the end of the month of October we will draw the winners name. It could be you. Your donation will go to the LiveStrong Foundation. Here is your chance to win a piece of history.

A new Serotta is born.

It's just like Christmas in the shop when the UPS man drops off the big brown boxes that contain the frame and parts to build up a new Serotta. Building a custom bike piece by piece is a labor of love so check it out as we build a new Serotta.

So that's it for today, We got quite a bit done but there's much to do to finish the bike. Check back tomorrow as we complete the bike and call our very excited customer. More photos and a few more details on the components. Just check out those wheels, Bontrager Aeolus 5.0 carbon clinchers. Light and fast! See ya tomorrow!
