I had the fortunate privilege to tour the Pearl Izumi headquarters in Colorado during my family thanksgiving vacation. My friend Lindsay works-her-magic for 'Pearl' and thought I'd like the place...and I did. Lots of creative minds and goodies to play with...and of course a good sense of humor always makes a company good in my book.
Got a great ride in at Hall Ranch near Lyons. That place is supa-fun if you like to go up multiple rock gardens for what seems like an eternity...and I do, so it was cool.
