UPDATE: The Speedy Devil has been recovered. Big high 5's to Roger/Kitsune Cycles. Keep an eye out for the XOXO still. One of a kind, & should be easy to spot.From Ben @ Handsome: STOLEN HANDSOMES!!!!! Last night the Handsome office was broken into. 2 bikes were stolen. A new 2012 XOXO and my personal SPEEDY Devil. The XOXO is easy to spot as NO ONE else in the world has one. It has a NuVinci rear hub, a ton of Velo Orange parts and a one of a kind custom made Handsome quill stem with an H engraved into the faceplate. The Speedy is my (Ben) personal bike. It is the first proto-type we made, and I am absolutely crushed that it is gone. Has a Thomson seatpost and stem, Paul Components brakes, levers and cranks, Civia bar, and Fyxation grips and seat. WE WANT THESE BACK AND ARE PLACING A BOUNTY ON THE HEADS OF THE FUCKERS WHO TOOK THEM. YOU GET US OUR BIKES BACK AND WE WILL GIVE YOU A CUSTOM HANDSOME COMPLETE OF YOUR CHOICE.
OK, back from vacation. The NEW CRC website should be launching very soon, (insert broken record sound here). But this time, for real. If you have any questions on jersey/bib/kit availability please email me, or go HERE.. Also, I'll be in Switzerland from 7-August, thru 10-August, so if it's during that time, I'll get back to you when I return. Thankyouverymuch!

Since everyone is asking what I'm going to do next, I'll let the mighty Replacements answer that question for you:
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 both 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....
