Awesome Day Yesterday, Repair Time Line, Skyline Turns 10 Years Old!

Talk about a beautiful day yesterday. I went over to the mouth of Cold Water Canyon around noon and was blown away because the whole parking lot was full. As I rode I bumped into friends and customers around every corner. It was awesome to see everyone out and about, maybe summer has arrived to stay, here's crossing my fingers. On a side note Skyline Cycle turned 10 years old on 04/01/06, we couldn't have done it without all the support, thanks.

We have the repair timeline down to about 5 days now so if you need us we're a ton faster than we were on turn around time even two weeks ago. As always thanks for picking us as your bike store.
