Shop Tour @ Mellow Johnny's (Austin, TX)
On the way to Oregon for the final two weekend's of Cyclocross, we stopped off at the Cyclingdirt HQ in Austin, Texas. With the off season fast approaching, it's time to start thinking about alternatives to race coverage week in and week out. We'll still have all the big races covered, but we'll also be taking a closer look behind the scenes at the world of cycling. mellowjohnnys.com

Over the last year the names Scott Tedro and Sho-Air have become synonymous with mountain bike racing in the US. However, most of the pack is still wondering, "What the heck is a Sho-Air?" Cyclingdirt stopped by the HQ last week to take a tour, talk to the man, and fill you in on the company that is changing the sport.

In the heart of downtown Portland is one of the coolest shops on the West Coast.

Cyclingdirt stopped by to take a look while we were in town for the USGP finals.
