Introducing: AWNRY Bikes N’ Stuff

Fullerton, CA, March 29, 2010 –(PR.com)– RL Policar and Moises (Moe) Ramirez have launched AWNRY Bikes N’ Stuff. “Moe and I have wanted to do this for a long time.” Policar stated. The famous blogging duo originally founded 2 very popular websites, MtnBikeRiders.com and BikeCommuters.com. Ramirez said, “When we got into the bike media business, the whole idea of becoming our own bicycle brand really intrigued us.” Both Ramirez and Policar are Southern California residents that were amateur racers and overall bicycle fanatics. Policar said,”We basically sold everything we owned, gathered enough money to design and manufacture our first three models. We’ve kept this whole project a secret. None of our friends and family members know that we’re doing this.” When asked about the name of the company, AWNRY, Ramirez simply explained,”We both have short tempers.”

The first model to hit the trails from AWNRY Bikes N’ Stuff will be the 29er Kung Fu Panda. This frame was designed for Policar and Ramirez’ close friend Jeremy Yang. Yang is the 29er specialist of MtnBikeRiders.com. Policar had this to say, “It was our way of honoring our friend Jeremy. The guy loves 29ers and with him being Chinese, we settled on the name Kung Fu Panda. Besides, this bike kicks ass!”

  1. RL and Moe when I get back from rehab I want the 9inch Downhill bike. I know i have to take my time to get back but that frame is sick…

  2. So proud of you boys! I know you guys have sacrificed a lot of time and money for this project. My fav has to be the Jackson! 😉

  3. I agree with Lynchmob — April 1st is tomorrow. Pulled the trigger on the tomfoolery a bit early.

  4. So on my list is…Adam and Andy…

    I’ll make sure we remove your names from eligibility of our contest when we give away all 3 frames later this week.

    Thanks!

    RL

  5. Well heck, I’m in if they exist…nothing more enjoyable than helping an upstart company… put me down for a Panda
