    I've never been to that store, probably because I didn't start cycling until long after I no longer lived full-time at my parents' place. I'll have to visit on one of my trips back.

    Bud's was one of the best shops in the country 20-25 years ago.. It has seen a downward slide over the last decade and it's nice to see a shop like JAX come in and try to revitalize it...

    They completely revamped the whole shop.. It is a TREK concept store so a little slim on bike selection but a nice shop..

    George must be making the rounds on SoCal that day. He will be at the Trek store in Vista that same day (Dec 2) between 11am-1pm.

    And yes, George married himself a podium girl!

    Nah, it is the off season in California.
    Women think they're so clever because they can fake an orgasm for the sake of a relationship, but men can fake a whole relationship for the sake of an orgasm.
