Mellow Johnny's

I had to run down to Austin today to pick up my new state issued vehicle, but I managed to sneak in a quick side trip to Lance Armstrong's bike shop Mellow Johnny's.

There was a wide variety of gear on hand such as Honjo fenders, Surly racks, and pretty close to every model of Brooks saddles and their (Brooks) panniers and leather grips. They also had some nice retro style jerseys from Solo and expensive stuff from Rapha.

The employees were all genuinely helpful as a couple of them made several trips to the stockroom to find the right size and color t shirts that I was buying as gifts for my oldest son. I ended up walking out with a few t shirts, a can of Proofide, and a wrench for my Brooks Saddle.

If you happen to be in Austin I highly recommend a trip to Lance's new shop.

Coffee and bikes, the perfect combination.
