Sponsor Spotlight: Paragon Machine Works

Paragon Machine Works makes all kinds of cool bicycle bits for framebuilders to use on their bikes at their home base in Richmond -- and they even made a set of wedding rings for me and my husband! They're supporting the Sweep with some of their rad cotton goods emblazoned with their unique skull and crossbones logo, as well as one of their sweet titanium bottle openers!

Sponsor Spotlight: Ahrens Bicycles, Chris King, Freedom/WTB

Portland-based Chris King Precision Components has returned to support the Sweep by bestowing us with a gift certificate for one of their magnificent headsets that endure the test of time. (And I recently had the pleasure of attending their Sonoma Gourmet Century; read more at KQED's Bay Area Bites' blog.)



Mil Valley's WTB and their urban brand, Freedom, sent us a big box of their ThickSlick tires and two of their comfy Econoline commuter saddles!



Local framebuilder Mike Ahrens and his brother Ken have launched their popular bottle openers, WiseCrackers, as a separate business this year. We're stoked to have our own Sweep-branded collection to give away to some lucky winners once again!

Sponsor Spotlight: Alite Designs, Missing Link Bicycle Co-Operative and Urban Velo

We're always thrilled to have sponsors return to support the Sweep, and Alite DesignsMissing Link Bicycle Cooperative and Urban Velo are back again this year!

Alite Designs, the outdoors lifestyle company, just opened up a shop in the Mission to sell and showcase their cool products. They donated two of their signature portable chairs (the Mayfly)!


Berkeley-based Missing Link has generously kicked in three stylish Chuey Brand caps (another sponsor this year) and one of their shop t-shirts!



The fantastic cycling publication, Urban Velo, has sent us a huge pile of beer coozies, stickers and a vibrantly-colored t-shirt!
