This is Official! Name Changing News!

Candlestick Park (home of the Niners) will soon be called The Pake Colisseum! SF's other ballpark has already gone through three corporate name changes: Pac Bell to SBC to AT&T now. Candlestick along with a new name will soon have a covered bike parking and a pump track.

O.K. enough of the BS... The real news is that we finally decided what to call our nameless frame models.

Our original steel track frame will now be known as the RUM RUNNER. That was submitted by Jude L. on our FaceBook contest. A rum runner was someone who smuggled alcohol during prohibition time. It is also a name of a cocktail.

With that selected, we decided to name our other frames after interestingly named beverages.

The aluminum track frame set is now called FRENCH 75. This is named after a potent drink made with gin and champagne, which in turn was named after the French 75mm, an artillery cannon that really kicked ass in World War I.

We have also selected the name BOILER MAKER for a player to be named later.

For those who are going to piss on these saying we are encouraging young impressionable minds to drink and ride, become bartenders, or go to Purdue....stop there; we aren't. We just want something to call our bikes.


  1. the rules said no alcohol references..

  2. actually the rules said "no beer related" references. we didn't want anything too similar to SE's Lager.

  3. ooooh, i was about to say.
    well congrats to the winners! if i had known we were going with the drunk theme, i'm sure i would have come up with something better. in the mean time, i will be enjoying my free Pake saddle :D
