We made the quick trip to Emporia to see the architect of the new HighGear/Trek Regional Team, Matt Brown, over the weekend. We got a tour of the new shop they hope to be in by March. It looks like its going to be a pretty amazing bike shop. Just a few doors down from their current location in Downtown Emporia but about twice the size. Its going to be pretty cool on the inside, using a lot of the old buildings original finishes such as the original ceiling, brick walls, and floor. The highlight might be an office/lounge area with showers for after bike ride relaxing. Its an easy drive from the KC area and with two races in Emporia this year everyone should stop by and see Matt. Speaking of that, I see the DK200 filled up fast. People are crazy.
