i've known kurt fletcher for about 20 years. he's a fixture among st. louis cyclists and even more so among the couriers/bike messengers that roam out streets.
now kurt has launched his own cycling apparel and gear company called 708 Cycling. some of it is actually made right here in st. louis, and all of it is solid gear meant to last.
check it out, it's a chance to buy some great stuff locally for us st. louisans and a chance for people elsewhere to pick up thoughtfully designed stuff from a guy who's lived and made his living on a bike.
