Coast No Coast in CCC

Topher and Matt in front of our store

We got a great visit from the boys of Coast No Coast on Monday. These guys quit their jobs and sold everything they had to ride their fixed gears down the west coast all the way to Mexico. Crazy perhaps, or at least silly? I don’t think so. To me this sounds like an awesome idea and I have to admit that I’m a bit  jealous of these guys. I would love to be in a position where I could do something like that. These guys are starting a trip that will change them forever.

They had been having a good time in Kelowna and Vancouver for a few days but decided it was time to move and rode their loaded Milwaukee Bruisers to Victoria. They stopped by our store in search of some BMX brakes and Jay helped hook them up for them. Fixed gear is one thing but loaded fixed gear touring with no brakes is quite another. After hanging out in Victoria for the day they came by our store to collect their bikes and we had a few beers in the shop, exchanged stickers, compared battle-scars and shared stories. These guys are always welcome in our store and we will be following their journey with great interest.
