Winter Tidings

Little Big Man-William Huckleberry Bowerman has been dominating the Mtn Merc blog recently, and those of us here at the Merc proper are feeling a little bit left out. So to properly compete with Lil' Will' we have some antics of our own to show you:
Steve, Mac and Eug out on a ride about a month before the baby was born.Eugene Shreddin' on the uni at Tele Fest.
Norm goes for the pass!
And from our very own Shameless Commerce dept: We have a few pairs of Scarpa tele boots available in like new condition for $250. Some have been worn a couple of times, some not at all. Mondo Point sizes 21.5 thru 25.5 available, with the exception of 24 and 24.5 sizes.
Eugene is gearing up for a big adventure to the bottom of the world! He leaves for Santiago, Chile on the 29th of January for a 6 week trip. He plans to backpack in the Patagonian Andes, where he hopes to find his friend Lindsay, learn a bit of Spanish, and clear his mind a bit. When he leaves Mac and Danielle will be back in Oakridge taking care of the shop, and of course introducing little Huck to Oakridge. We'll be happy to have them back! The community garden, the shop, and many of those loyal to our shop here in Oakridge all miss them every day.

If you like to ride check out our link to Coconino Cycles down in Flagstaff, Arizona. They're still shreddin' this winter, and will be up our way for the Handmade Bike Show in Portland during mid February. Stop in and see them at the show or on their blog to see some of their beautiful work, and meet a couple of great people.
