Making a Splash at Pedalfest

First off, want to thank everyone that dropped by the custom bike area of PedalFest yesterday. We met some great people and chatted bikes with people of all walks of life. Met a couple interesting Bruce Gordon bike owners too. One gentleman had ridden his Rock 'N Road touring bike well over 100,000 miles(!) having purchased it new in 1993. Said the frame and racks are still kicking like they did on the day he bought it. Another gentleman is still rocking a custom lugged Bruce Gordon from 1978!
PedalFest also brought about the reemergence of SOPWAMTOS. The lab coats, Fez's and a Golden Toity made an appearance for the show. Bruce and Sean (Soulcraft) even had some shirts made up for the event. They are available in limited quantities, so grab them now while they're still available. Printed on very soft and very black American Apparel shirts, you can profess your love for SOPWAMTOS for $20!

Hello From Pedalfest - where are you?

Hey all - we're here at Pedalfest in Oakland, representing the custom bike crew. Come on down and join us, we'll be here all day. Oh, New Belgium Beer is right next to us (even more reason to show up).

SOPWAMTOS - We're Back!

(Or maybe we never left)
Yes - there was a bit of a leak yesterday morning that SOPWAMTOS is back. Truth of the matter is, we never really left. But now there is some actual organization to the movement. Not a lot (wouldn't be our style) - just enough to bring our fellow followers a central point to find some very cool American made bikes and parts.

There I go again, letting more things slip. Stay tuned - we're working 'round the clock to make this happen. In the meantime, the BG Cycles store has been updated with all kinds of new products (new to you, that is). Check it out when you have a chance. Feedback is (gasp) always appreciated.
