HBW Scores Podium Spot

Congrats to team riders Damon Little on his 2nd place and Toby Porter on 4th place in the 6 hour event at the Cowbell Challenge in Charlotte NC. Both riders went out on the challenging 10 mile course. Both riders completed 5 laps in just after the cut off time, 50 miles in just over 5 hours of racing. Note to all others racing, the HBW riders were running self-supported.

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Please take note that E-Designs will be going live with Harrells Bicycle World’s World Wide Web page version 1.0 very soon.

As we are trying hard to stay community oriented, we have a link set up from the website to this BLOG. What does that mean? It means that this BLOG will be representing the Harrell’s riding community and probably receiving quite a bit more traffic. So we just want to make sure that we think about representing Paul Harrell and his business appropriately when we make posts.

Neither Paul nor I think there has been a problem, we just wanted to make everyone aware of what is coming aboard.

I am also calling out for some information and pictures for those of you who post here on the BLOG. Please leave a comment under this post with the following information:

A list of all the bikes you own and ride.
Pictures of the bikes you own and ride. The best way to get us these pictures is to send them in an email to We will also need your written or verbal consent that you allow us to publish and post pictures of you and your bikes on the Harrell’s website.

If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to leave a comment and I will answer them the best I can.

Thanks for your time and courteousness,

Sunday MTB Ride 8am

Sunday 6/17
Meet time 8am
Harbison Front Lot
Distance to be determined
Come one come all, bring your mtb one gear or many gears no one counting.

Mt. Mitchell

Hey everybody,

Here are the awsome results from last Monday's Assault on Mt. Mitchell:
(full results at

The weather was a moderate 70º - 75º from bottom to top, a bit muggy, and with a slight breeze. The sun barely poked through the grey clouds that blanketed the skies all day, and of course, the last 5 miles were through a dense, rolling fog.

Finishing 108th, Gabe rocketed up the mountain in a time of 6:10:00 - congrats Gabe!

Finishing 161st, I came up next with a respectable time of 6:27:05 - which is 0:02:32 faster than Lynn's best time, so now he has to ride again (little side bet we had going).

Rounding out the top 25%, Kevin came in 250th with a very good time of 6:55:02.

All three of us cracked the 7 hour mark, and that's great!
If anyone else came up, and I didn't write in your time, just post a reply or email me.

Good job everyone!
