Hey Mike

I was in on June 18 and asked if you had any Traverse pants for a fat guy. All on back order. Love the Klim Adventure Gloves and the Hearos, though. Nice shop.

Hi Mike
I have been in town 7 or 8 times in the last 4 years and it really is hard to believe that some local trash is harassing you over your politics. We actually looked at cabins last time I was in town and it was in the back of my mind could I live with some of the neighbors? Stay tough and don't back down! You have a great shop and between you, the bakery, and the lumber yard it is the only thing going that will help the area grow.

New Cherohala Skyway tool. It's insane.




FYI:

Trail 82 is clear. Trail 81 is blocked with blowdown until next week.

Dead animals on the door step, people running over my safety cones, locals in pick-ups trying to wing my customers with their mirrors, and a visit from the Chief of Police telling me to arm myself are the reason I carry. All the B.S. stopped as soon as I started packing. Just a very small group of locals that are known by me & the police.

I think it's kinda funny. They're all a lot bigger than me. I'm "minimike" for a reason.
Ill gladly come work security at your store if you have an opening haha.

I look out my work window once a week atleast starring at the empty store front accross the street dreaming about opening a place like yours.

We stock the Carbon. That's going to be by next helmet. It's amazingly light, very quiet, and has good air flow. I'm PM you a price since the MSRP Nazi's patrol my thread to keep me under control.

Mike is the real deal. When you go in, you can tell he is one of "us". Just dropped entirely too much money there today getting into a Traverse setup. We were running late and he kept the shop open for us. Class guy.

I finally got my fat guy Traverse pants in a couple weeks ago, so he should have some now. I ordered mine early April.

We are open Labor Day weekend Friday & Saturday till 6pm or so, Sunday till 4pm or so, and Monday till 5pm or so, I say "or so" because sometimes we are there a couple hours past closing due to traffic.

If you're in route and think you may arrive after closing hours, just call & I'll wait for you. We do that all the time.
