DIRT LAB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well Spot Brand Bikes Bought Maverick!!!! All the inventory has moved over to the Spot HQ, I will not be making the move, I will be staying in the building where the lot is full of Dirt Jumps, and the building has a DH/DJ/Freeride shop and a Machine shop that is a design Studio and soon to be Suspension Pro Shop!!!!!!
I found out about the sale and the move so I really started thinking, I love where I work!!! so why not stay here. Start up my own Suspension shop. I spoke with the original Owners of Maverick and they are very supportive, this means alot since it is coming from the guy who Started Rock Shox and Maverick, and also the part owner of Maverick who is super Rad machinist. I worked out lease on a small part of the building with him, on one side of me will be "The Fix" Bike shop and on the other side will be Frank and Paul's new gig... a design studio for MTB and Moto products. So I will be doing set-up, overhauls, tuning, upgrades, and some frame linkage upgrades. With having FV and the machine shop so close it really pens up a lot of doors on things to do.

I leave tomorrow to head out to St. George UT for BIKE Magazine's bike week, I will be represent Dirt Lab!!! and have 4 days of killer riding with some amazing people. When I get back it is time to work work work and get the shop up and running.
We are working on website, one of my bros from are helping me with the website which is so lots of stuff to do...stay tuned!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
