125214666 Behind the Curtain What's Cookin

Dave and I don't really have staff meetings, but we do go through a list of current projects each week. I figured the easiest way to keep our customers in the loop is to just publish the list here, along with some explanation of what we're doing and what the status is. I've also broken them into categories based on immediacy. So here's What's Cookin', the February 2012 edition: Rolling Boil: Free Tubes: (Or, if you prefer, free carbon clinchers with the purchase of our $945 tubes.) We ship all our wheels 50mm and deeper with a pair of removable core...
