The Canari Blog

We make clothes. Good, tight, stretchy clothes. They are fun and colorful. Our clothes work best on bikes, but some of us like to wear them when bowling, shopping at the street fair or just ordering some ice creme. The main point is we make clothes. Good clothes.

OK, Everyone who has NOT had some form illness in the last month raise your hand....
Looks like no one from where I sit...
Is there a secret plot by Al Quida to keep us sick and weak in effect here?!?!? Vitamin C and Wellness formula folks will be the eventual weapon of choice, just you wait and see...

Just remember what my dad used to say, "Daniel, can't never did anything; now start that mower and get to work."
Sometimes you have to ask your self what the root word of "can't" is.
Words to ponder on your Thursday...

Where's Waldo

budda43 -

I owe you some cerveza - give me some contact info and I'll hook a brotha up. Great cycling story.

Where Have All the Good People Gone

It's almost the end of January and it feels like we just watched the Rose Bowl last night. This month flew too fast, and between some sickness, family tragedies and the like, the Canari family has been MIA. The good news is we are for the most part back in action and ready to rock and roll.

OK - so this is the official - WAKE UP and smell the Antron Nylon/Lycra Spandex burning POST. Time to jump back on the wagon, fondly remember the weeks we had off in December while revving up for the sweet smell of Spring shipments (whatever). If that doesn’t butter your muffin, get ready for some crazy technical mumbo-jumbo marketing spatter about our Fall 07 line. Really, we’ve uppd’ the ante on our Canari team and finally have agreed to allow Lance to . . . OK – I can’t legitimize any of that and don’t feel it’s necessary. I’ve seen the light, and you will too when the Canari Fall 07 line drops . . . let’s start with Tundra Windfront Knee Warmers – AHHH! Obscure? A bit. Needed? Definitely, especially for the temperament freaks who don’t want tights, but their bare knees are “coldey. More to come on Fall, including the bestest (huh?) wool jersey you’ve ever, ever seen.

Oh - Finally - seen the latest ad from the marketing wannabee's here at Canari? Whatever,

Peace-in - cr

Today will be the day that the Canari office staff get that once in a lifetime opportunity to make it big. A fleeting chance at stardom. A break into the world of celebrity. An open door into the house of movie stars and rock idols. Today is the day we are going into the land of "above and beyond", "the next step", "pushing the limits", "breaking the glass ceiling". Today is going to be better than class picture day in Jr. High School. Today we all become models for the Canari ad campaign photo shoot!!!! Stay tuned people as this is only the begining of a new career full of bling bling and cruising in chaeufered Maybachs....

Your Funniest Cycling Story

OK - we are on the hunt for a great cycling-related story that will make us laugh. Can't really tell you why we want this story - but suffice to say that we will be keeping the winner's ramblings locked away with our nuclear passcodes.

OH - the winner will receive a 6-pack of Arrogant Bastart Ale. So send em' in!

Thanks!

Quick Release

The correct term should in fact be "leg tearing" not leg ripping. Ripping would imply that the leg has been yanked completely off in a quick and "almost" painles manner. What happens on the daily lunch ride is more akin to "tearing" as it happens slowly and if all goes well, quite painfully indeed. This has been done in a few different varities from long fast flat sections of road, to long grinding back breaking climbs. The result is usually the same, with at least on of "the guys" wimpering about working too much or out too late... At least we look good in our custom team kits though... Thanks Shaun!!!!
