Happy F'n New Year......'06 looks to be prosperous year here at PBS.

The casa is still a mess, the wheels are done and my parts for Pinky are starting to roll in. SG is gign to be rocking tomorrow. We have been closed for a week and the orders are aplenty. I will get them all out.....maybe.

Big Jonny over at DrunkCyclist has his store up and running. Checkout his new socks, T's and jersey's. I have had the socks since Interbike. They are tall boy's and look like old Basketball socks. Very pimp.

Link dump:
Portland Cyclewear: I finally followed up to one of my Interbike brochures. They make Custom Wool jersey's. I ordered one to see how it looks. If it comes out well I may offer them on the site.
Maverick American: I ordered an SC32 29er fork for my Pinky project. I can't wait to checkout this fork.
Fizik: Fizik just updated their website. They are offering more custom colors and offer more saddles in the custom program. Yep, you guessed it! I have one on order for Pinky.
Chris King 24mm: You can't have a SC32 without one of these. You can't have bling without King. To top it off it might as well be pink.
