News FLASH!!!

SockGuy just saved the Earth. That's right folks, SockGuy single-handedly saved the Earth by reducing the carbon emissions of all its employees this Friday. Unfortunately, there were some unintended side effects on the ride in after a wonderful breakfast at St. Germain's café in Encinitas. So if you detect a certain unpleasant odor in the air just knowthat it was worth it because now you won't have to wear SPF 2000 sunblock next year.Go SG Unit!!!!

Brent Prenzlow races cyclocross and is the top ranked Elite racer in the SoCal Cross scene.
He has podiumed 6 times this year so far (1st place four times and 3rd twice)!
It MUST be the SockGuy socks, booties and base layers!!!

All fun aside, Mr. Cady better clean up his act before one of his two little daughters figures out what this is and start doing this to him!! By the way, Kenny, this one’s for you. Love ya bro!

The Cancer Sucks mission statement: "Provide a forum for those who have lost loved ones to cancer while aggressively raising money to find a cure. No one should have to go through what millions of cancer victims, survivors and those left behind have endured."

RIDE CLEAN and SockGuy have created a sock featuring the Ride Clean logo on the back of the tall ribbed cuff and will donate a portion of the proceeds to the Agency for Cycling Ethics. Remember - HOW you get there is more important than when you get there.

Dopers Suck, But Our Socks Rock!

The ever-popular saying has infected the cycling industry. With all the past and current doping issues, who are the winners? Those who are not doping, obviously. That is why SockGuy has been promoting with several new styles of socks. Perhaps this epidemic of uncovering the cheaters will soon spill over into other professional sports, and the true winners will emerge victorious.

MIT Team - Notice the Black Aero Booties

The MIT team sent a group to Collegiate Track Nationals last weekend,and made sure to take the aero booties SockGuy sent them. Here's a shot of Jason Sears using his booties during the points race; they must have helped, because Jason won the Individual Omnium in his division!


Rocking the Pink DOPERS SUCK socks, a bit muddied but none-the-less, a statement!

It must have been the Socks!

Frank Schroeder presents the Incycle juniors team with a check for $1,115.00!

The Schroeder Iron-Incycle team was out gunned but not out spirited at the San Dimas Stage Race. The last five laps saw the Schroeder Iron team at the front trying to position Pat for the sprint. With our tired legs we came up a bit short but Pat was able to pull off a 5th place finish for the stage and was also a respectable 5th in GC. The Team is continuing on its winning streak with wins at Boulevard, Murrieta, and Redlands.

Beavers Gone Wild!

These Photos were taken at mile 24 SAG on the Croom 50 SWAMP Club Challenge in Florida. This fine group of dedicated female mountain bike riders say, "it’s all about having fun!"

SockGuy products showing up in the Endurance arena....

Captain Cardboard spotted some SockGuy gear being raced recently at the 24 hours on the Old Pueblo. Mary Collier, Todd Carpenter and Jens Raz all raced wearing our "Team Camo" gear and placed 3rd, 5th and 11th respectably. Good job Guys and Gal!
She looks much better in Pink Camo than some of us (and when I say us I mean me). Sorry ladies no pictures of the boys...yet.

My friend Jeff Kerkove also sent me some pictures taken at his new Team's Launch. The Team is Topeak-Ergon. Here are a few....

It's hard to see in the photo but, the guy on the far left (Jeff) is rocking our Royale GT.

Same with this one. Thanks Jeff for using our products!

I have to get some of those green grips........

Employee of the week!

We have a new employee here at SockGuy and in true SGblog fashion I nominated him as EOW this week.

He is new so I can't give you too many details but, here is what I have thus far; He grew up in Downieville (so he is probably a hillbilly), For the past several years he has lived in Arcata (Humboldt Sate University, need I say more....), He is a huge fan of Reggae music (Eh Mon!, good lord I think I smell the green fog from here), He is a mountain biker so I'll give him props for that, He used to run a shop up in Arcata (Adventures Edge, they better be one of his first clients) and he doesn't believe in a carwash (money is spent elsewhere hint, hint....).

Introducing Chris Rinker......

Foley and I initiated him into SockGuy-dom by taking him to the Yardhouse during the Tour of California. If you can't handle your beer then you probably shouldn't work here. Chris looks like he will make it.

Welcome aboard Chris!

As much as it hurts me to see this picture....

I am sure it will hurt your eyes just as much.

Yes that is Captain Cradboard in the middle. No those squares are not cutouts but, they are my flesh tone. Yuck.

To help your eyes and keep the laughs rolling.....

YMCA Spin-a-thon

If you work for SockGuy and you don't know who this are not a team player.

Most of us from SG participated in a Spin-a-thon at the YMCA today. The event began at 7am this morning and lasted until 7pm. Our team decided to ride in one hour increments. Some of the other teams decided to ride multiple hours consecutively. Nah. D-Money started the SG train followed by Mrs D-Money. Bobo's Mom went third followed by yours truly in Pink Camo (of course) at 10am. T-Bag went on at 11 and Barf rode his heart out till 1pm. Senor Cardboard wearing Green Camo went on again at 1pm only to be followed by "The Artiste". My buddy Geri (short for Geritol) rode at 3pm at which point I rode again at 4pm. The 5pm slot was open so I called Vanilla who in a pinch rode 2 hours consecutive. Where was "THE" SockGuy you ask? Home with a bee sting....Did I mention Mrs. D-Money is 7 months pregnant? And Senor SG can't ride because of a bee sting? Did you notice how many times my fat ass (when I say fat I mean huge) rode that stinking bike? 3 hours. I sweated a gallon of water atleast.

I don't care what anyone says, that's a great workout! Thanks go out to Robin, George and Dabney for MCing a great event. Robin and Dabney even taught several of the hours and rode a couple as well!

SockGuy got a lot of exposure today, some good some bad. My last outfit was demoralizing to say the least. It didn't help when I was called to the mic and had to say a few words to the riders and then show the my outfit. I am sure pictures will surface and when they do I promise to try and post them.

Toyota United for 2007

There is article on the "New" Toyota United Cycling team for 2007 over at

Toyota United (

We made some new socks for them this year. I think they are a much better design plus, you can read the sponsors better. You can kind of see them in the group photo. They say United & Toyota on the front and on the back there is a vertical blue stripe that says SockGuy in white. The socks are a prototype of next years Royale GT. More info when I get my grubby mitts on a pair.

There's a Superbowl bet going on...


over at another site, I like the payoff.

Dave Evil (Evil Cycling) has bet Big Jonny (Drunk Cyclist) that the Bears will win the Super Bowl, likewise Jonny is betting on the colts. What will they win?

If the Colts win Jonny will win a pair of Evil socks and if the Bears win Dave gets a pair of Drunk Cyclist socks.

Inventory is finished.....

and The Captain is starting to catch up on orders. Lot's of new designs, new products and new ideas in the hopper. Let me know what you would like to see in the SG line (serious ideas will be posted). More Royale colors? Would you wear a sock that says "SockGuy" on the cuff? Should we bring back the offensive lineup (Bitch, Slut, etc.)? Are there colors you would like to see in our line (We don't have many orange socks)? Do you have a design you think would sell?

Let me know. If they are good I'll claim them as my own and maybe get some $$....Just kidding, they wouldn't give me more $$.

For your viewing pleasure....

Here is Rhonda. Earlier last year she was voted (by me) as employee of the month but, I didn't have a real picture of her. She is not happy here, she is not a fan of photography.

This is also a sneak peek into Captain Cardboards 2800 square foot office. This is the Wool/ Channel Air aisle.
