New Geoff’s Bike and Ski Kits!

After a long and glorious run it has come time to retire the original Geoff’s Bike and Ski cycling kits, but do not fear because new and improved kits have been designed and are now ready for pre-order!

Louis Garneau will be making the clothing, this is some of the best cycling apparel made.  The fit, feel, and comfort of the Garneau product is second to none.  Not to mention that our special custom pricing is in some cases better than if you were to buy a similar or even identical piece from the non-custom collection.

Orders are due by December 12, 2014.  All orders will need to be pre-paid at the shop with cash, check, or credit card.  A full size kit is available at the shop for those who would like to try on pieces and determine fit before placing an order

Here is the order form with all available items and prices: GBS LG custom Order Form

A paper order form is also available at the shop.

Please make sure to specify size and color (all apparel will be available for men and women in both the pink and red options)

(preferred customer discount and team discounts are applicable and will be applied prior to payment)

 

P.S. Check back later this week to see sketches of all orderable styles (arm, knee, and leg warms, sleeveless jerseys, vests)

P.P.S!  All orderable pieces are now up (11/28/2014)

Jingle Cross Rock 2012 the KMC edition

For the fourth year our very own Kevin did the big boy race, aka UCI Men’s Elite, and threw down with some of the best cyclocrossers in the biz.  Here are some sweet photos of him looking wicked fast and super pro.

 

Alas it isn’t possible to be so fast and so pro all the time, such was the case for Kevin on Saturday.  Some course tape and stakes maliciously attacked him during the race on Saturday.

Needless to say he got a little bit scraped up.

Unfortunately Kevin wasn’t able to finish the race on Saturday, but thanks to the great docs with UI Sports Medicine he got all patched up and was able to get after it again on Sunday.

Nothing a little bit of super glue to the face and some ace bandages won’t fix.

Jingle Cross Rock 2012 is in the books

What an amazing 3 days of racing at the Johnson County Fairgrounds,  it has been amazing to see this event grow and evolve over the last several years.  Who remembers when the race was small time and held on the Ashton Cross Country course?  Crazy how far things have come.  This year provided us with amazing weather for the entire weekend and great overall racer turnout across all categories.

We would like to give a huge thanks to all the people who make this event happen from the officials all the way down to the junior racers, Jingle Cross wouldn’t be what it is without all of you.

GB&S was proud to have the majority of our staff participate in at least one race, and here is the proof.

Boss man looking good on his S-Works Crux, 3 great days of riding from Geoff despite the plethora of other things he was responsible for.

Kevin was the only Iowan represented in the UCI Men’s Elite, he raced all 3 days, and was the only one B.A. enough to bunny hop the barriers every lap.

I (Nick) raced all 3 days as well,  I think this picture sums up my weekend, more about the fun than the results.

Andy had strong showings on all 3 days as well, his new fancy Ridley X-Night and carbon tubulars sure do make him look fast.

Aaron was only able to race 2 of the days but had great races and just missed the Single Speed podium on Sunday.

Sam also raced 2 of 3 days and put some some really good results in a very competitive Cat 3 race, he also just missed the podium during the race Sunday.

Geoff on the go: Colorado Bike Vacation Goodness

Rocky Mountain High, Geoff and the guys out riding some high country dirt in Colorado.

Show me the Love(land pass), Geoff and Darcy rode their new Co-Motion Tandem all the way up to the Continental Divide.  Too bad they didn’t stand on the sign or something to get above 12,000 feet.  Not too shabby though considering we live at a mere 700 ft in Iowa City.

To cap off the week, the crew got to watch of few stages of the US Pro Cycling Challenge. Looks like Geoff discovered what really keeps the Clean Bottle running up all those mountains.
