Happy Holidays to all my cycling and non-cycling friends. Come say hello to the new manager at California Pedaler in Danville. See you soon and stay safe out there!

[09/04/17]   Commuting on my 1981 Sekai 4000. The same bike I rode across the country on in 1981. The Phil Wood hubs,Nadax bottom bracket still spin like butter. Suntour Cyclone and Superbe mix with 6 speed freewheel and Suntour Barcon shifters. 25 lbs of the smoothest ride you will ever feel !

[08/03/17]   Cycling everyday is like breathing. It can be fast,labored,hampered by hiccups,slow and measured,erratic, affirming,relaxing,or just plain comforting. I ride and breath everyday.

[03/03/17]   Once upon a time a little 30 wt. from a can brushed on your chain was as effective as a carbon wheel set to get you back on the road and feel good about your bike again.

[08/22/15]   Rode with the new Livermore Cyclery kit from Craft and swear I gained a watt or two. You can order these on-line too.
Congrats to our in-house Mr. Leadville Randy Bowman who beat his previous time on a new Trek by 28 minutes and placed 6th in his catagory @ 64 yrs young. GOooo Randy !!

[11/03/14]   WE ARE OPEN !!! Livermore Cyclery in Alamo Ca. yes we have bikes for everyone but we also have nutrition , clothing , fitting services, club discounts, a women's section ( still under construction and looking for feedback ) and a really great bunch of folks working tirelessly to get you out there and have fun.

[09/18/13]   Man-o-man am I missing Interbike this year ! Gone are the days of hosting stragglers from shops that didn't provide shelter for employees like Tim Parker,Eric Parker,Scott Derdenger and others while I was just a small mobile business traveling under my own name ( MIKE). See you next year at Mandalay Bay !!

[05/13/13]   Stood near a bike accident victim tonight as he bleed and gurgled on the ground with a head injury. Fixie bike, fast corner near downtown Walnut Creek, loss of control, head to pavement, NO helmet.. I ended up talking to fire dept. on someone elses phone to get protocol. The guy got carted off on a backboard. A $50 helmet could have saved a lot of trauma, ambulance and ER visit. I hope he's O.K. but damn, wear a helmet !

[05/05/13]   So hard to see it all end but it is indeed over. Good luck to all my cycling family/ies. I'm interviewing for work and I hope to land soon in the Bay Area...It'd great to hear about your cycling experiences again, maybe now I can share some of my own...

[04/27/13]   30 years ago in 1982 a young entrepreneur said,"what if I repaired bicycles at my customers' doorstep?" to which my mom replied, " what about the insurance?". I forged ahead with no money, borrowed my dad's car and ran an ad in the Yellow Pages. I created my own invoices to allow space to write down in detail what had been done to each bike,donated mechanical support for 15 years to charity rides, leased my first answering machine from AT&T, stapled flyers on telephone poles, worked part time jobs here and there, and waited for calls.
This is my final Saturday being self employed. Thank you to all my loyal fans and customers, thank you for sharing your cycling adventures with me, thank you for an amazing career, see you out there on the road. Mike
