Deep Thoughts with Jay Ellis

Next up in our ongoing #DeepThoughts series, we accomplish a couple of big things. First, we finally get Jay Ellis to say ‘pianist’. Even written out, it’s funny in an 8th-grade sort of way. Secondly, we establish that great music and great beer are the two pillars of happiness.

Al Gets Fat. Finally

This past weekend, Al McWilliams braved blizzard conditions to spend some quality time with Cody in Traverse City. This is the story of his fat bike experience. 3T does not make a fat bike (yet).

Our friends (and team-cousins from the Panaracer/No-Tubes team) Kae & Dan made the trip from Chicago and Greg, Chris & Jordan came down…
