Well, I finally sold the Tracer. Made a customer out of the deal, too, so that was pretty cool. I sold the frame and fork used and built up a brand new bike around it for him. He was super stoked. There was a tear in my eye as it left. Kind of makes me sad with the Tracer sleeping at someone else's house now, but I'll get over it.
Anyway, had a pretty cool new customer today. Travis Brown and Walker Ferguson dropped in today. They both gave the thumbs up to Redstone - thought it was a pretty cool shop.
Travis (you know, Matt's friend Travis) says he's only racing about 1/2 a season this year. Knowing that he likes to ride technical stuff, I asked him if he had done much exploring around Lyons before and he said he hadn't. He gave me his email address to hook up on some group rides, though. He was stoked to hear about all the cool technical riding around these parts. Don't worry about the fest, though. He's aiming to win Iron Horse. Keep your fingers crossed.
So, he was riding a very peculiar bike, too. He was on a Fuel EX prototype - a one off, custome built for him. It had a 29" front and a 26" rear tire. 3.5" 29er Reba on the front and 4.3" travel in the rear. He said it was a super sweet ride and he's trying to convince Trek to make one for production. I asked him if the bike was photographable. "Ummm. Probably not. Not too many people know about this one." Sorry...
