    I would guess the Bicycle for sale section is directed right at their target audience, and there is the Canyon Lake shop still for sale as well...

    Looks that way, seems like it is worth more in its inventory than the business...could you survive on $18K per year?

    @ 18k you're better off working @ Bill Miller BBQ

    If it's 118k a year and I'm only reporting 18k to the IRS then, yes please

    I'm curious about the austin shop

    Go figure, right when I'm looking for a bike.

    Perfect. If you buy the shop, you can get your new bike at wholesale. What a bargain.

    Austin Bikes?

    I know they sell demo road bikes on Craigslist.....so maybe they're going that route first.

    Seems like they sell Orbea and Moots...I'd call that high end.

    They aren't in a stand-alone building, are they?
    When you are a man, sometimes you wear stretchy pants in your room. It's for fun.

    Ah, fair enough.

    Been in there only a couple of times. I do want one of their kits, however.

    I might consider buying if there was a pump track in the deal.

    Hello all,

    In order to quell the speculation, I'll go ahead and announce that its HH. I didn't mean to let it simmer out here in mojo-land for so long but I spent much time away from the computer this weekend. The add pretty much says it all. The shop has a strong amount of potential from the right owner. Unfortunately, given the amount of things I've got going on right now, I'm not able to give it what it needs. If anyone is seriously interested then go thru the CL add. We are channeling all shop-sale related communication thru there in order to keep everything in one place. I'll answer basic cursory questions here but I don't want to play into any of the easily started gossip or banter.

    Thanks in advance.
