Greetings :

I'm well aware of issues with these newsletters on Yahoo apps. Can't get any support out of Yahoo so if you use Yahoo Mail, please click the "View Online" link above or use any other browser or app, all others work fine.

Well, a little rain and cooler temps last weekend but the rest of the week and the weekend look pretty good for riding.

The shot here is high above Los Gatos/Monte Sereno (Can you spot the deer?). Actually a good route if you're into climbing. I'm not so much anymore, but I do enjoy scouting for alternate routes. This is a good addition to any route to or from Los Gatos. Most people just ride along Hwy 9 from Cupertino to Los Gatos and back. This route provides some extra climbing miles and some cool scenery as well as road. I'm sure many of you haven't done it so take a look and give it a shot next time you're riding in the area. Only one tricky spot at the end of Greenwood Road where you have to cross over a small section of dirt and onto what is really more of a driveway than a road. This connects the route and gets you back to Los Gatos via Withey Road down to Hernandez Ave, which many of you may be familiar with. If you're coming off of Hwy 9 onto Greenwood, you'll get a nice steep climb about halfway up. The rest is pretty moderate and well worth checking out. (Strava)

Easton Promotions:
Buy a new EA90 or EC90 wheelset and Easton will throw in a set of road bars and stem. In addition, 15% off to eligible customers on any Easton Cycling products. Mountain & road wheels, stems, bars, seatposts, etc. All 2015 wheels are now tubeless-capable and wider rim widths. Sponsored riders are eligible for higher discounts. Other great deals available, including competitive price matches on the new EC90 Aero 55 full-carbon clinchers or tubulars. Remember: Buying wheels from me means you don't have to return them to the factory or take them to a LBS for service, I pick them up and bring them back, quick! Plus, I typically have loaner wheels! News:
I can now accept credit card payments on my silly phone using Intuit Payment Services. It's much better for me than PayPal and hopefully a convenient option for you. Of course, as always, PayPal, check, or cash are always welcome, too. The bad news is that invoice payments via Intuit no longer works until I upgrade my version of their software. For now, cash, check, or PayPal still works. 

My online Parts Express store is coming along with more new items added this week. Again, the goal is to list parts & accessories that I have on-hand and that can be delivered to you very quickly. Didn't get everything uploaded yet but I'm working on it. Don't forget to checkout My eBay Collection. Buy any listed item directly through me (no eBay transaction) and save on shipping charges, I'll deliver to you free.

This shot is yet another gate pillar in MOnet Sereno. Why do so many nice roads end at the gates of another mansion! I knew this was a dead end but just wanted to make sure it didn't branch or have a secret outlet. Same ride as above just closer to the beginning.

I know most of you don't service your own bikes but hopefully you'll order tubes, tires, and other items from me. I'll deliver free or install on your bike when I service it. Those of you who do a fair amount of your own service work can browse and order items that I will deliver much more quickly than you could otherwise get from another online retailer. Of course, I don't have the selection that you'd find on other sites, but it does show what I have on-hand and available much faster and more convenient than the alternatives out there. The site currently allows you to order online and pay via PayPal instantly or via an invoice (pay me later).

I also know most of you order online or shop via LBS's for tubes, tires, etc. My hope is to make it easier and cheaper to get that sort of stuff from me. I can also ship to you via USPS. If you want things shipped, don't pay via PayPal and I'll invoice you upon shipment, local Priority Mail is ~$6.00. Prices shown are retail. When you create an account I'll update your discount level. All active customers get a minimum of 5% off prices shown, which will show up after you log in and add items to your shopping cart. Local delivery will be same-day or next day. I also try to carry tubes and other similar items in my vehicles.

The Parts Express store is kinda clunky right now but if it gains traction I'll improve as necessary. Please give it a look and let me know what you think. Parts Express Some of you already have accounts on the site so just log in or request a password reset if you don't recall. Your user name is the email address you used to create the account. Doing so will also allow you to update your service profile and contact information.  

If you don't see what you want, browse my suppliers below and I'll order it:  
Cane Creek | | BTI/USA | Hawley USA | J&B Importers | Hawk Racing | iBike Sports
Velocity Wheels | Easton Cysing Products | Wahoo Fitness | SeaSucker | IceToolz
Wahoo KICKR's seem to be back in stock so lead-time is back to normal, about 7 days. I can't justify spending that much money on a trainer, but they are pretty awesome for those who have real jobs and can't get out to ride. You can go buy one locally or online but buying from me gets you a better price and much better support, of course. is also an authorized Wahoo Fitness dealer. Those of you looking for the latest in indoor trainer technology, the Wahoo KICKR is amazing. 

I'm placing my usual supplier orders Wednesday late afternoon. Please let me know if you need anything not currently available via Parts ExpressI have many items on-hand and I can deliver very quickly. I tend to carry tubes, tires, chains, cassettes, bar tape, bearings, brake pads, and other common consumable items in my vehicles. So that kind of stuff is always available fast. Just let me know what you need or order on my site and I'll get it to you ASAP.

REMINDER: If you ever have any issues with your bike after I service it, please call/text/or email me ASAP. I'll find you and get it fixed as quickly as possible. Stuff happens. Part of the value of my service is that you don't have to return your bike or wheels to a shop. I will come to you, no-charge of course.

Again, don't forget about my Spot Tune-up Service. This is a cheap and convenient way to keep your bike rolling smoothly and efficiently. I find you and dial-in brake and shift cables and take care of any minor issues that can be resolved onsite. Only $30 and extremely convenient.

PLEASE NOTE: customers enjoy competitive pricing from all my suppliers. The list prices shown on my site are not necessarily what you'll pay. If you know that the price is higher than your local dealer or favorite online retailer, just shoot me the link and/or let me know. I will match any reputable price out there. I can usually get just about anything. If you need things quickly, just mention the specifics. I can get most things in my hands overnight, next-day, or two-day, it just costs more for shipping. And, yes, you will receive tracking info as soon as I receive it. 

Okay, shut-up and ride!
