for the 2 people that didn’t show up.

critical mass, getting critical.


prizes…we’s got prizes

don’t tell your friends. maybe they won’t show up.

thanks to the generosity of awesome sponsors…knog, bagaboo, pbr, yancopads, fyxation,  damien velasquez powdercoating, fixed and free, bike world, bike coop and a shitload of others, we’ve gotten so many dope prizes for the duke city classic that we may just have to add more events…or keep it all and open a bike shop.

unfortunately…a) we already have so much going on we can hardly keep track of it.

b) we already have more bike shops than we can hang out @.

so instead, come out and win some excellent schwag.
