Sorry for the long break of no blogs... Starting the last week in October, we will begin our winter training nights. There will be 3 Redline IC70 trainers for use and a couple rear wheel trainers for use. You may bring your own trainer, and make sure to bring your bike as well. We will supply the Training DVD. Bring your A-Game...Cause these training videos will kick your butt! Stay tuned...I will update the dates and times very soon. Just waiting for our trainers to come in!

We are done with the Espresso section. It took allot of work, and we still have more work to do. But I do not feel satisfied with what we have accomplished. I'll feel better when things pick up! On another note:
An implementation of a bicycle path or trail system would greatly improve the livability of Ontario. But certain city officials believe otherwise. Heaven forbid that there be something healthy to do for family's in a city. We just feel like there can be more to be offered in this town. We hope the Officials of this town realize that the youth are the future. And we should nurture EVERYTHING they do, not just organized sports. This should apply to motocross, bmx, skateboarding, mountain biking, road biking...etc.
We have been asked over and over again, are you doing a Jolts and Juice? The answer is No! We created Sag Wagon Espresso for the Cyclist of Ontario and surrounding area's. Jolts has really good coffee, and we will strive to make ours every bit as good as theirs. But we are not trying to compete directly with them. If you want a good cup, and your on that side of town...stop in and get your fix. I have wanted to create a Bicycle/Espresso shop for the past 2 years. And now we can do it. Did certain people along the way influence this? Yes, all ideas start somewhere. Is it odd for some? Yes, you may not grasp the concept of what we are trying to create, but with time hopefully you will.
We really wanted to create a hang out for the cyclists before and after group rides. And to generate a little extra income during the winter months. And that is where the drive-thru comes in handy. We are coming up on our 3rd year of New Ownership! July 1, 2009 will be our 3 year anniversary! We are trying to create a unique bicycle shop in this area that will compare with no other.
We are also using Dawson Taylor espresso beans. They are located in Boise Idaho, and I believe that they have the best quality beans around. Roasted fresh daily! Remember, We are open! The drive thru is open! So what's your excuse? Support your LBS! and your LCS!

Well, its been awhile on this project. I thought it would be fast and simple. Man was I wrong. I have been working day and night on the expansion. Here are some pictures on the progress. This will show all the work that had to be done to make this possible. In the pictures you will see that a hole had to be dug from one half of the shop to the other. I had to cut through the concrete 40'. And remove 4 thousand pounds of concrete. The first load weighed in at 2,200. And I still have another load to take when the snow melts.
Then the dirt had to be removed. That sucked! In the pics below you can see the chaos! This all had to be done to install the floor drains in the kitchen area. The plumbing is now in, and I have the front counter in. I just got all the sheet rock up, taped and textured last night. The paint will go on this evening. I will update the photo's soon. We now have to get the fixtures on the plumbing and then the training will begin! Stay tuned!
