Hot off the brown and gold truck comes the new and improved Winter Thermal Brimmed Cap. The nicest upgrade is the foam bill. Past versions used hard plastic that would eventually crack or warp in the drier. The new TREK model will have no such problems. Other features are ear flaps that are the perfect length and a thin profile that fits well under a helmet. Swing in and pick one up for just $29.99.

Learn How to Bike & Ride Sept. 15
OMAHA – If you’re looking for an alternative way to get around Omaha, hop on your bike and head for the nearest bus stop.
Starting Monday, Sept. 29, the general public will be able to begin using the new bike racks mounted on Metro Area Transit (MAT) buses.
Local bike enthusiasts can practice using the new bus bike racks in a learning session set for Monday, Sept. 15. The event - sponsored by Activate Omaha in conjunction with MAT, the City of Omaha and Omaha by Design - will begin at 5 p.m. in the front parking lot of MAT headquarters, 2222 Cuming St. All those interested are invited to participate.
“MAT’s new Bike & Ride program is a great way to encourage bicycle use and help raise Omaha’s profile as a bike-friendly community, said Tammie Dodge, project manager with Activate Omaha. “We encourage cyclists to stop by MAT on Sept. 15 and try out the new bus bike racks.”
All buses in the MAT fleet will be equipped with bike racks by the end of the month, said Curt Simon, executive director of MAT. Each rack holds two bikes, and the racks will be mounted to the front of the bus.
The bike rack program has been funded with federal grant money for transit projects related to the construction of the Missouri RiverPedestrianBridge between Omaha and Council Bluffs. The racks are not intended for motor-powered bikes (gas or electric), mopeds, tandem and recumbent bikes, tricycles, bikes with training wheels and bikes with trailers or other attachments.
For more information on the dos and don’ts of using the new bus bike racks, visit http://www.metroareatransit.com/ and click on the “bike & ride” link.

You've seen it in the magazines now you can swing in and check it out in person. Hot off the truck and race ready is the new Gary Fisher Superfly 29er.
Fisher's goal was a no comprise design that takes away all the obstacles anyone could have with moving up in wheel size. Not only is the new SuperFly frame the lightest 29er Fisher makes, it's the lightest frame Fisher makes period.
Match this with Fisher's ground breaking G2 geometry and you've got a bike that has everyone else chasing to catch up. At 23 lbs. without pedals the SuperFly is as comfortable on the race course as it is on your favorite trail. We had the opportunity to ride the SuperFly this fall and were impressed, we think you'll be too.
Don't forget, we've got Omaha's largest selection of 29ers and 29er accessories with 6 models of bikes, 10 styles of tires and 3 models of wheelsets in stock!
