For those unfamiliar with our professional model/16-times running employee of the month/resident adonis Manny, do yourself a favor and take a nice leisurely stroll down sunny South Street past our shop window and take a quick gaze at his majesty.  This spring you’ll find Manny bedecked in some of the exciting selections from Specialized’s new line of spring apparel, freshly arrived in store.

After one of the coldest winters on record in our great city of brotherly love, Manny, eager to saddle up and resume his commute to an arduous day of standing in our window (i.e. “work”) by bicycle, was super excited to get into Specialized’s new-for-this-year Utility line of apparel. In spite of all the truly fantastic road and mountain kits we got it, the language in Manny’s contract stipulates that he gets to pick what he wears, so here we are with some awesome stuff to keep you looking and feeling cool (literally and figuratively) whether it’s your commute or your ride. Stick around after the jump for a bombardment of photos and specifics about this exciting new line.
