HOT off the Truck Archives
At this point we’ve only received a few but boy are they cool. Road, triathlon and urban commuter bikes that have style and great technology. The Felt has a history of making light, fast bikes that are a good value. They also do freaky high end like the $13,000 DA1 triathlon bike shown below. What ever your taste is Felt has you covered.
Come check out the Felt bikes and stay tuned as we get the 2012 models in.
One way to beat the early onset winter blahs is to check out the cool new bikes for 2012 and get excited for next season. To help this along we’ve gotten in a number of awesome bikes that are drool worthy and as good as Vitamin D in battling the effects of seasonal affected disorder.

While there are many variations of the pedals including the Roc and Z-control downhill pedal, the mechanism functions the same for all of them. Read More
Why should we have to make sacrifices for convenience? Does that not negate something actually being convenient? Read More
If you have been following us on Twitter or our Blog posts than you know how giddy we get when new stuff shows up, yes, maybe even overtly so but we usually chalk that up to the exceptionally strong pot of shop coffee.
So of course it’s been like fireworks here for the past week as we have been receiving our 2011 Argon18 shipments. Never heard of them ? You should have by now!
At Braun’s we have brought in the fi’zi:k saddle test ride program.
This program includes samples of all six of fi’zi:k’s unique saddle platforms. We’ve all been there. Your bike seat isn’t doing what you want it to … or it just plain hurts. Read More
Countering the Winter Blues
To help counter act the “winter blues” this time of year, I find that I am constantly pressing my face up against the window of the bay door of our shipping department, waiting for that magic delivery truck. Yes friends, I am anticipating the delivery of all the shiny, trendy, technologically advanced new bike products for 2011! Read More
Happy New Year,
