The trials and tribulations of owning a small bike shop…

by Chris Kelly of Topanga Creek Bicycles!

Chris Kelly does stand up comedy for the first time in 15 years at the Improv in Hollywood. Chris owns a bicycle shop in Topanga Canyon and his 8 minutes are a funny look at the challenges of retail in the world of the Internet and his unique location in Topanga.

I’ve always been a huge fan of Chris and all of his bicycle endeavors. He had told me a little bit about this skit at Frostbike. And to come back from Minneapolis and see this, I just had to share! Next up…the Omaha Bicycle Co. and Topanga Creek Bicycle’s Shop Swap! Now…that’ll be interesting!

I’d like to have Hunter Cycles anything!

Track bike, cyclocross bike, hip-bag, canti barrel-adjusters, anything! If you didn’t notice…I’m a huge fan!

It had to be two pics today!

Erik from Peacock Groove really knows how to party!

Thanks for being so rad and keeping the Hand Built Bicycle scene nerdy…now back to Voltron.

A pic a day…while I’m away.

I’ve always been pretty impressed with QBP’s catalog design and I am even more so, after entering the QBP facilities and seeing the wall of framed catalog covers. This one stuck out in particular, anybody know what year this was?

More Klunker please!
