Andrew Hanson's Surly LHT

The Quick Stop Bike Shop is no ordinary bike shop, and the people that work here are also far from ordinary. We will be featuring some of our personal bikes, some tech, some not, but just a little look inside what we ride.
First up is Andrew Hanson's LHT. Andrew races his Gary Fisher 29er around the area for us and The Fisher 29er Crew. When he's not setting a blistering time on the racecourse he's out on the Surly LHT searching for the perfect fishin' hole. Many, many personal touches on this rig...

Brian Foster Legendary Style

For me, Brian Foster has probably been the most influential person in all my years riding a bicycle. As a kid I remember when he raced a Cyclecraft (who remembers that company??) and made everything look so easy. I still look up to the guy for flawless, silky smooth style and grace, and even at 36 years old I don't think he's letting up anytime soon. Unstoppable and timeless. Here's to you BF. Cheers. -James
