Trek Company Update, ‘Trek to Immediately Sever Relationship with Greg LeMond’

There’s a Press Release and a whole media primer. If this is public, you can bet it got real nasty – you can even smoking gun it yourself in this initial summons and read a ways into the complaint to find that it’s an alleged Bro deal gone wrong (page 4, para 16)!

Nihon-jin at the Bike Shop

Nihon-jin.jpg At Elliott Bay Bikes, we had a gang of Japanese bike enthusiasts stop in. Minato Seiya-san of Depot Cycle & Recycle, a shop in Ichikawa near Tokyo and Yamamoto Atsushi-san, maker of the Gunung label of hats, chatted with me when I emerged out of my mechanic station hole. I asked them about their travels in Taiwan, and then I told them about my downhill run in Nikko. It turns out they’re friends with Morita Yohei of Cog Magazine who stopped into the shop a couple months ago. Minato-san and Yamamoto-san are on their way to Philadelphia this month for a messenger race. While in Seattle, they are visiting the Seattle wing of Reload Bags.
