Home » Awards & Recognition
Although awards and recognition aren’t the only reason we do good stuff, it’s nice to be noticed!

We work hard for you, cyclists and the community because we believe in being a good “corporate citizen” and also because we want your business! Please always keep us in mind when making any cycling related purchase. We promise to do right by you every time.

That said, we want to brag a little about the plaques and kudos we’ve received over the years.
