Had some work done on my bike today, so I went down to Mellow Johnny’s in downtown Austin. To me it’s one of the coolest places around, not just a bike shop, but Lance Armstrong’s bike shop! I’m not gonna write a whole book about what I think of the man and the history behind it, I’m still a big fan, got to meet him in person a few times (actually rode with him for a bit), let’s just say – he still had to ride, finish and win those 7 Tour de France’s… Its not like you or I can just do that… And yes he’s an a-hole, so what! So was Steve Jobs, Niki Lauda and Michael Jordan, I guess that’s what’s needed to be on top of the world.
Anyways, Mellow Johnny’s, it’s basically a bike museum in a bike store, and they have some really, really good coffee too. So it’s basically an excuse for me to just relax there if I have some time for myself, grab a coffee and admire all of Lance’s bikes from the past. And if you need anything bike related, or want to go on a group ride, they have it all. Nueces and 6th downtown Austin. (June 2012)
