2012 Durham Cycles Awards

Geoffrey Martin

GEOFFREY MARTIN

The “SAVING DAVE’S ASS MORE TIMES THAN CAN BE COUNTED” award goes to Geoffrey Martin. Mr. Martin regularly worked 7 days a week during Durham Cycle’s first months. Magically, despite a minimal inventory (and often in spite of Dave’s protestations), we would always seem to have exactly what customers needed most. Innumerable “freakouts” have been averted because of Geoff’s uncanny knowledge of the location of every tool and piece of inventory in the shop at all times. It is by virtue of Geoff’s coolness in crisis that Dave made it through the shops most harrowing days. Most importantly, Geoff’s sober advice and sincerity keep people returning to the store, which makes this whole endeavor possible. Geoffrey will be receiving a Saab 93 to tow behind his current Saab 93 and use for parts as necessary.

SCOTTY MATTHESS

We are proud to announce that Scotty Matthess has won the “SAVING YOUR ASS ON NUMEROUS OCCASIONS” award. In the past several months alone, Scotty, with his keen eye and vast industry knowledge, has spotted 3 cracked frames, 2 cracked Campy crankarms, a recalled stem, numerous recalled brakes, and a recalled baby seat. Scotty most likely saved people from serious injury, identifying problems before a failure could occur. Durham Cycles and its customers are incalculably grateful to Scotty for his service. Congratulations Scotty: Your certificate, hand calligraphed by Eddy Merckx using Sheldon Brown’s favorite fountain pen (hand made from a 1967 Nuovo Record Rear Axle, with an ink cartridge of dirty Phil Wood lube) is in the mail.

MOST INTIMIDATING: IT’S A TIE! We couldn’t decide which strikes more fear in the heart of a competitor BRENNA FORESTER’s fierce snarl or ERIC WANG’s Magisterial Pose

MOST LIKELY TO GIVE YOU DIABETES: ANOTHER TIE. This time it’s a split decision for BECKY WOODRUFF of the Duke Cycling Team and Conrad Catolos of Durham’s Daisy Cakes. Their sweet personalities aside, the surfeit of sugary treats these two regularly bring to the shop are likely to mean an upgrade to the “club cut” jersey for Dave and crew.
