August 9 - Trek Direct Online Sales Program & Oskar Blues Pinner IPA

Summer is rolling along here in the land of cheese and maple syrup. Chain befriended a father-son team that is cycling cross-country to fund a new firetruck for the Penobscot Fire Department.  He hooked them up with a fresh tire to get them home. If you are interested in helping fund their mission or just following along on their tour you can check out Hugh and Alex's Facebook page.

Trek has announced a new direct online sales program that they will be launching soon allowing people to buy bicycles directly from the manufacturers website. Will this help or hurt local bike shops? Will bike purchasers receive the same fitting services and guidance? Only time will tell, but there is a chance this program could really change the game.
