Heck of the North

CRC is proud to once again be a sponsor of the 2011 Heck Du Nord. Jeremy Kershaw puts together a great route through the northwoods and backroads outside of Duluth. It's the culmination of a great season of Minnesota Gravel Racing. Registration is slated to begin April 1, so get going on those creative postcards.

CRC Coffee Bar is Closing Its Doors, Friday, March 25, 2011

I'd like to announce that the CRC Coffee Bar will be closing its doors for the last time on Friday, March 25, 2011. Many factors lead to this decision, and now it is time for the next adventure in my life. I'd like to thank all of the remarkable friends & customers of CRC-many who've become friends- for your generous support & encouragement throughout the past 5 years. Rest assured that Cars-R-Coffins as a brand is not going anywhere, and will continue to support the local cycling scene. I also encourage all of you to continue to "support your local independent anything" & especially all of our friends on 34th & Lyndale. I'll see you on two wheels.

the early days.

In 2009 the City of Minneapolis tore up Lyndale Avenue and for over 6 months of prime-time season, left us with this for our sidewalk. Still charged us for a Sidewalk Cafe License though....

Mission Workshop x CRC Limited Edition Vandals

These custom Mission Workshop Vandals just landed on our doorstep, (thanks, Justin!) and are super-limited. Only 5 of each, in black or silver, were made. And don't sleep, because you know I'm keeping one just for myself! I predict these will be gone by the end of the weekend.

Cutter's Ball Deuce

Cutters Ball Part Duh Flyer
The lads @ Handsome Cycles are back with their Cutter's Ball, going on next Saturday, 19 February, at the new Peacock Groove space. Be sure to come down and drink free Moosehead Beer, and eat Jimmy John's sandwiches. It's sure to be a hoot, as it coincides with the influx of out-of-towners in town for QBP's Frostbike. Brought to you by Handsome, Peacock Groove, Banjo Bros, HED Cycling, & Kurt Kinetic.

Ladies and Gentlemen,
the time has come to place your order for the new 2011 CRC cycling kit. Once again, we have collaborated with local powerhouse, Twin Six, to bring you a classic design to help you look good on the bike, whether suffering through a gravel grinder century, or turning the screws on your nemesis at the 24 hour race. This year we are offering jerseys and bibs, in both men's and women's sizes. The cut falls in between race cut and club cut. Sizing chart is available here. If you're unsure, I'd suggest ordering up. Or put down that cake and ride a few more miles...

The jersey design is largely unchanged from last season, although the blue has been brightened up, and the black will be blacker; there is none more black. Jerseys are FULL ZIP, and will be in stock in roughly 3 weeks. Bibs are about 8-10 weeks out. As you can see below, you may order each piece separately, or together as a kit. Please be certain to select your proper size from the drop-down windows. Shipping will be via USPS Priority Mail.

*International customers, please contact me in advance of ordering.

Any questions? Please ask. Thank you!
