Chris is at it again. This time he believes no matter how cold it is outside something from his world of bicycle parts can protect him. While a great set of tires may give him the grip needed to grab the road this winter, we are not sure how they are going to protect him from the snow that is sure to start falling. Luckily for Chris he has on his favorite Smartwool Balaclava. Not only does he look like a ninja, this full face head covering will retain a good bit of his body heat.
If you want to see Chris bring your bicycle in for some off-season TLC, chat him up about his tenure in one of Peoria's greatest underground rock bands, and see if you can figure out why he loves patches so much. Even though it is winter here at the Bush our bike shop is up for anything you may desire.

Hobbies and Pastimes:
Air drumming, Adventure Cycling, Collecting Bicycle Cards

Favorite Gear:
Smartwool Balaclava.
