A few short notes:
Grand Bois tires are in stock again. We have both the 700C x 30 and the new folding version of the 650B x 32. Bicycle Quarterly says: "One of the best tires we have ridden: light, fast, and comfortable." The already legendary Grand Bois tires are a reproduction of classic French randonneuring tires. They are made in Japan to a very high standard and are now my standard tire; I love them. They are as close to a classic handmade touring tire as can be found today. I expect we'll sell out soon.
We bought a small quantity of 43mm hammered and smooth standard length Honjo fenders from another importer. We hope these will give us enough stock to last until our big shipment from the factory arrives, but they might sell out fast. They should be here next Wednesday.
All the TA cranks have arrived except for the box of 170mm crank arms. Those seem to have been held up at customs.
We'll be closed this Friday.
Interbike is only a month away and I hope to get several new product samples there. What new stuff should I look for?
Finally, would anyone be interested in a stainless steel version of VO fenders?
