We have lost someone irreplaceable

There's a bike shop in North Carolina unlike any other in the world. There's a collection of old bicycles, in particular mountain bikes unequalled anywhere I have been. The man behind this convergence of mountain bike history was Jeff archer-he was just struck down by a drunk driver while he was crossing the street. His business partner Wes Davidson will have the monumental task of manning the helm at the immense shop that is literally the temple to all things bicycle. Jeff will be missed by the bicycle community greatly.

He was just at Cane Creek the other week. Glad I got to speak to him. He will indeed be missed.

First Flight / MOMBAT are just 30 minutes down the road from me and I bought my most recent Salsa from Jeff. He was a great guy and will be missed. If you're in the area, stop in and do what you can to keep this wonderful shop alive.
