(thanks to my good friend Kelly for modeling for the article)The other day a guy named Mike called. He said he was interested in getting a gift certificate for his wife for a custom bike. She was celebrating her 50th birthday, and he felt he wanted to surprise her with something special. Mike, you are a TRUE man. What a rad gift! To make a long story short - Liz came over to get sized for her new ride. The look on her face when I wished her happy birthday was priceless. Big grin from ear to ear! I don't think I have ever seen anyone so excited for a custom ride. During her fit analysis with her current bike Brian and I noticed that she was going to be a great candidate for custom. You would never know that Liz just turned 50. She is my inspiration - cross country ski master, teli instructor, forest service ranger, and cyclist. The thing that put the icing on the cake was that she just moved to my small little town. How cool is that? Can't wait to bike with Liz this coming spring.
