We are thrilled that we’ve reached our One Year milestone! This really could not have happened if the stars did not align for us in so many cool ways. We are grateful for the help of our family who offered support financially and emotionally, and who gave sage advise on many things business. We are also very grateful to our friends, both old and new. There are too many times to count the ways fortune shined on us in one way or another, where we were able to benefit a little by some random circumstance. The cycling community continues to pull together to help us truly make Irwin Cycles “your neighborhood bike shop.”
One would never guess the resources we have right here in our very own cycling community – people who can help build things and tear things down (Charlie Granda of TheRenovators.us), people who paint (Frank Carlos, the best painter in town who road Mt. Charleston over 240 times this past year), people who save you from broken ACs in the middle of summer – Rob Wenk (super fast dude on a bike!), expert tile workers (Druce Finlay, who, with his father Robert Finlay of Kayak Lake Mead have done numerous adventure race and won the Everglades Challenge many times), folks who can find you good stuff (Rick Watts – Turner Green Machine adventurer), folks who have been there before (Ike and Andrew, founders of everyone’s new favorite trail), good neighbors (Ed Fryatt of State Farm – we still have hope that he will ride his sweet bike again!), pro photographers that make us look good (Shanti’s a super rad rider also!)… Really, the list goes on and on and on and on. Everyone who gave us a kind word or support, who recommended a friend, the folks at the complex, all of our cool reps, from customers who came in for an overhaul, or just a tube and some advice, everyone is a part of our success this past year. Yes, this means YOU!
Thank you and we look forward to another awesome year in 2015! See our transformation in one year in the slideshow below. Enjoy and see you soon!
