    Is Freeride Bikes/Custom Bikes still in biz?

    I called for days (mid week), and no one answered. Finally someone picked up. I asked if they had any 20mm hubs.

    No.

    Asked if they had any Rock Shox Pikes in stock (since they are a RS dealer or so I presumed from their RS logo on the site).

    No.

    Do you have any "all mountain" type rims?

    No.

    The guy (not John) kind of chuckled as if he broke into the house, decided to pick up the phone to play pretend and thought it was funny they had nothing but a thief making his way through the side shop. But I knew he was a real bike shop employee when he muttered the phrase "but we can special order it for you."

    My reply....

    No.

    But it's not as bad as Hyde Park Cycles. I thought moon cabbage Shawn Grossman had weird hours (open at noon, closed by 3 on days with the letter E, not open the day after Nationals west of the Mississippi, and definitely not open 7 days before or after a Phish, Dead or Stranger Neighbor show) but the new guy never picks the phone up.

    Okay. Rant over. Wendy's 99 cent frosty always makes me moody.

    I pass that "shop/house" every night on my way home and did recently notice that the "Freeride Bikes" sign that used to be out front was no longer there.

    I think they merged with these guys: http://www.custommtncycles.com/ (sorry, link tool not working). At least the http://www.custommtncycles.com guys are a local Turner lacky.
    Nobody cares what kind of bike you ride.

    Interesting, the address at that link (Lander) looks to be the same location as Freeride. Is the phone number the same too?

    I sure do like the original unmangled quote from Ben Franklin better than yours. You must be a big Stryper fan then?

    You mean his quote about Beer?

    He published a book entitled, "Fart Proudly." No kidding. My kids wouldn't believe it until I proved it to them. He's one of my heroes.

    And I know you take that beer quote VERY seriously CBro....

    I might have to defer to Crash_Burn for a ruling if these guys qualify for "worshipjamz" but enough about this - I wanna hear all the smack about dh ss racing instead and if we can get a recumbant category added to the banzia (just kidding, I'm going to enter the Banzai).
