DCCX 2009 A Huge Success!

We are still on cloud 9 from the DCCX Cyclocross race at the Armed Forces Retirement Home in DC on Sunday! It was a great time with an amazing group of racers, specators and supporters. Family Bike Shop was the title sponsor and we were so happy to be a part of team DCMTB's efforts. There was a record 533 racers including over 60 women racers- A MABRA record!

Moots Demo Day

Jon C. from Moots came out to Family Bike Shop, Crofton MD on Tuesday with a fleet of beautiful titanium greatness. A group of six got to experience the smooth ride out at Rockburn Park. Here's a nice write-up by Jim, the Unholy Rouleur:

I'm all giddy about the newest shop news! We now carry Moots Titanium Frames!

Moots is a small, detail-oriented bicycle company in Steamboat Springs, CO. Titanium offers unsurpassed ride quality, allows hand-built craftsmanship detail, and the best long-term value of any high-end frame material.

Moots offers Road, Cyclocross, MTB, 29ers, and Commooters.

We currently have the Compact Frame (pictured above) in the shop. I have a PsychoX (pictured below) on the way for myself.

Stop in and see why a Moots should be yours, too.
