    Sounds like a plan! We should be receiving our next shipment of Heidenaus in a couple weeks!

    We've started to get requests for tire/service reservations for next year already....just wanted to let everyone know that we're not taking orders for next year until after the 1st of the year. That being said, if you have any questions or want to get your planing started, feel free to drop us a line at any time.

    Well, it's the new year and orders have begun to creep in. Feel free to contact us to arrange tire reservations for your 2011 trips to the last frontier.

    We usually have tubes in stock, but if you want to be sure we can do a pre-order for them (along with anything else you might want, like filters or the like) and package them up with your tires. Just let me know.

    I was part of a trip to Deadhorse summer of 2010. We ran into some problems, and Shawn was awesome helping us solve them.

    superb couple of dudes and great service. 100% recommend.

    The roads are starting to clear and we should be open for business in a couple weeks. Anyone that's planning on a tire change in Fairbanks, remember to get your tire reservations in at least 30 days before your expected arrival date.

    Ride safe, have fun!

    I guess we'll have to remedy that when you bring those wheels by.

    Everything smells bad to Beemer. (None of us have the heart to tell him it's him.)

    The lift and tire changer are put away for the year. The garage has been swept out, and the door is closed for the season. Thanks to all those that stopped by this year for service, or to just shoot the breeze. Y'all stay warm over the winter, we'll see ya next year!

    Mitas tires! Can you get them? Ran a set in Africa, great tires!

    The Heidenau K60's were not so good. Wore square and wore fast. Never again!

    We can special order them, but probably wouldn't be able to save you much over Internet pricing.

    If your K60s went square, and wore quickly, my guess is they were over inflated. That's the only time we've seen those symptoms on the K60s. In many cases folks follow the suggested pressure from the info plate on the bike instead of the suggested pressure on the tire
