Does anyone know if Extreme Bicycles is open?

Z was on vacation last week (7/15-7/21) and I thought he would be open this week. I stopped by this morning and there was a CLOSED sign on the door. I looked thru the glass and it looked like much of the merchandise was gone from the walls and shelves.
I checked his Facebook page when I got home but no clues there.
Anyone know what's going on? I hope he isn't closing the shop. That would be truly sad.

Hmmm. No info here, Ron. Been so busy with this !#&*%! property since the rains came that I haven't ridden in about 2 months. Just don't have the energy to work like a field slave all day and ride too at my age!

So naturally, I've had no need to stop by. Let me know if you find anything out!

Stopped by the shop today. The homemade "CLOSED" sign is still on the door. I saw what looked like a customer's bike inside near the door -- a white Specialized with aerobars and a pink computer. The front display rack is not by the door either. I couldn't tell if the small refrigerator is still there. The trainer on the box he uses for bike fitting was not on the right hand wall either.
Still nothing on Facebook. What's going on? Z, where are you?

I heard from Black Bear Bike that that their dealer told him Z had closed up for good.

The Extreme Bicycles Facebook page disappeared today. I was hoping Z would post something on there to let us know what his plans are, etc.

I know its been several weeks since the last post, but Extreme Bicycles is closed for good and Z is currently working at Suncoast Trailside Bicycles located in the Target plaza on SR. 54/Suncoast Pkwy.

Thanks for the update. After the shop closed it seemed like he fell of the face of the earth.
