The Canadian Cancer Society's Relay For Life

On Friday June 19th will be the Relay for life for the Canadian Cancer Society. It's the biggest fund raising event for cancer research, Worldwide!
Hundreds of these walks will be happening throughout the world in the coming month. People assemble teams and raise money to eventually partake in a 12 hour walk where team members relay themselves from 7pm till 7 am. Cancer doesn't sleep and this is our way to show our support to the survivors, to those who won the fight and those who cancer took away.

Everybody know's that Julie, my girlfriend, works for the Cnadian Cancer Society, so we put a team toghether, The Dobergang, And joined Gatineau's Relay. Alain, Fred, and I will be participating as well as our girlfriends and friends. We're stoked and can't wait to walk.

We just suck at raising money! So we need your help!

We are asking all of the dober-dudes and girls out there to help us raise money for the Canadian Cancer Society!

Raid your couch pillows, sell all those fizz bottles hiding in your shed, get rid of some disposable income, whatever it takes!
In your lifetime, 2 out of 3 people you know will have had cancer and half of those will die. Cancer is the number one cause of death in the entire world. We all need to do what it takes to fund research.

You can donate money online here or get in touch with the CCS.

If you're in the region and would like to help the dober-gang, you can give us a call at the shop @ 819-682-5948.

We're also going to have some cool suprises for you in the coming days... maybeeeeee some crazy deals for you guys with proceeds going to the CCS... hmmmm maybe!

News from Clinton

So a few weeks ago rocco mike and I went to richmond VA for a contest put on by jeff lanoski called speed and style. We showed up a few days before the event to chill,ride the course and enjoy the southern weather. As we road up to the course to investigate what speed and style is all about we found Ebbett and Lanoski building the ramps, building with style but not with speed. Before we could offer our help jeff gave us the old "ill buy you dinner and beer if you help us get this place together" I said "ya I was going to any way but ill take free dinner and beer". It worked out good!
Thursday night ended with a trip to Lowes buying large stacks of wood on someone else's budget,free dinner and back to the hotel after the long day of travel.
Friday morning started at the 24hour cafe\bar. We got egg sandwiches and some local dude ordered a beer.

After food we headed to the event to work our asses off riding and building for the rest of the day. The ramps got built and shredded till dark with lots of spectators,live music and news crews covering the event. Ending the night with another free dinner on jeff.
Saturday morning started with the standard 24hour cafe and practice for the contest. I was pumped up and ready to shred after landing all my bigger tricks the day prior to the contest. But before the start I bailed on a 360 and got my first sprained ankle. I never got a sprain before so this was new to me. Not knowing if it was sprained or fractured my options were to go on a stretcher with a crazy unnecessary neck brace across a bridge in front of like 5000 people into an ambulance to drive me like five blocks to the hospital or ride my bike. Rocco and mike had to stick around and place 3rd and 4th while I road to the hospital and ended up missing a bunch of sic stuff.

I may not have won the bike event but a pic of me did win the photo contest! (The one on top) And my dude nurse saw clips of rocco mike and I on a event commercial during family guy!
Over all a good time!

On my way out to finish building bikes,pick up vince and go film sweet riding for you viewing pleasure!

Hi! I'm a Twitt!

Beeing the young, fashionable, and modern dude that I am, I decided to join this hot new thing all the peeps are talking about. That's right; the twitt fenom that is Twitter.

I'll try to update it regularly, hopefully a coupla times a day, to let people know what's going on at the dober-shop and in my little Gabo-world. (with the baby coming and all this should lots-o fun!).

So all you internet stalkers out there, my life is your playground. Just whipe your feet before you come in.

Here's the turbo link:

Allright, I'm off to work!

Lobster-Roll and Clam-Chowda

The last 2 Pink prototypes are now done and on their way to Cape Cod to get the final approval from Clinton and Rocco (We are also waiting on final approval from Christopher Hatton in France).
These 2 Pink protos are VERY close to the final production frames.
On the production model, the dropouts will have a bit more style...The head tube will be slightly different and the MID BB/pivot is getting a weight-watcher workout.
We have found the Fox DHXair to be a perfect match for these frames, we're happy to say that our Pink frames will be sold with them.
Please...don't ask wen the production Pink will be available... "We don't know"...but don't worry... We'll let you know when they will be.
