Texas: Austin bike shop co-owned by Lance Armstrong will no longer participate in police contract

Just The News:

Mellow Johnny’s, an Austin, Texas bicycle shop co-owned by disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong, has announced its decision to back out of a contract to buy, resell and service police bikes.

“In the context of the current evaluation of community policing in Austin, we have decided to no longer purchase, re-sell, and service police-issue Trek bikes and accessories under a City of Austin RFP the shop was previously awarded,” the store said in an online statement.

“It’s difficult in these times to balance the needs of a business and a community,” the statement continued. “Our entire employee group was engaged in this dialogue and we delved deep into our community to understand how we could best do our part to keep our customers safe and this city moving in the right direction. These are certainly trying times and we understand people will object to any decision made along these lines.” more here

  1. Armstrong doesn’t make his money selling bikes at that shop anyway’ He keep plenty busy selling steroids to other juicers.

  2. hey pantifa … I know a bike shop in Austin that is rumored to be selling bikes to Trumps family … goes by the name of ‘Mellow Johnny’s’, owned by some ‘guy’ named ‘Lance’

  3. Lance Armstrong only has himself to blame for being a cheat. Do not read his book, Why, not the bike. He’s as phony as a $3 bill and went from hero to zero. I have no sympathy for him.

  4. Austin Police should respond.
    Hey Lance. Once Antifa starts pillaging your shop….
    Don’t bother calling.

  5. I’m not surprised, after all it is Austin a town which would be far more comfortable in southern California than in Texas. Either the city should sue the bike shop (unlikely) or the police ought to issue a statement saying that they are glad that Lance’s bike shop backed out because they were always uncomfortable with any association with Armstrong who is an unapologetic cheat, thief and all around waste of skin who humiliated the US and broke the hearts of millions of kids around the world.

  6. Yes, but they will still continue to sell little girl bikes to Hussein Obama and his main stud squeeze Micheal so all is right on the left!

  7. First, I couldn’t give two shits.
    Second, they need to replace the bicycles with 5 ton military trucks to keep the roads clear of scum anyway.

  8. I am tired of the “disgraced” bullshit!!! You can’t do enough drugs to do what Lance did!! He earned more than his accusers!!

  9. I’m assuming the LE contract would be repair, replacement parts, tires, accessories (tire pumps etc), and new bikes. Sound like a good contract to have. What a moron. Secondly, why would the fact they had a contract with LE even come up unless they brought it up. Shrewd

  10. Lance Didn’t have both BALLS to stand up For the Police.

    (Look it up if you don’t know the reference)

  11. Lance Armstrong could ride a bike. That does not make him a good person or someone that should be admired. What he did that should be remembered is that he lied, cheated, filed lawsuits against friends and business associates, and did not hesitate to ruin the life of anyone that got in his way. Despicable is a good word for him.

    He is a nasty piece of work. I was visiting friends who are huge in the cycling world. He was in town for an event, this was in the mid 90s. The kids did not want anything to do with the son of a bitch. A real winner that one.

  13. Lance Armstrong isn’t in a position to judge other people.

    Dumb move, Lance. You might have made a come-back with the rest of us too, instead of buying off a small minority of lunatics.

  14. I hate cheaters. Once a cheater, always a cheater. He couldn’t take a leak without ped’s. Fuck him and everybody that looks like him.
