    My DIL in CA is in labor... my son called at about 11:30 this morning as we were walking to buy veggies at the farm. Things are progressing, according to him, and he will call when the baby is actually born. Since my DIL is a nurse, young, and supremely fit and healthy, I am hoping it won't be long. We don't know the gender of this one (they do), so I am looking forward to the news.

    Edit:
    Another girl! 8 lbs., 9 oz. As predicted, they went home from the birthing center, a few hours after birth.

    We had a family Face Time call yesterday, when my son, daughter in law, and granddaughter were here for dinner and met their California cousin. They seem totally settled. My DIL here is so different, though they are doing well, too. I am excited to for our trip there, in 2 weeks.

    Oh Noooooo, thankfully we do have the FB group.

    This forum has meant so much to me since I first tossed my leg over a top tube for the first time in my life in 2010, at age 50. The staff at the store have been very helpful, and members of this forum have almost become like family as we supported each other through so many different things in life. This forum will be missed, and I wish Susan and all at TE the very best as they consider what other adventures will follow.

    From the home page:

    For the past 18 years we've had the privilege of helping thousands of women discover the joys of cycling and triathlon. Its been an exciting ride watching the industry grow from just a tiny handful of women's brands and product lines in 1998, to the broad selection of women's apparel available today.

    We are proud of the role we've played in helping women's cycling to develop, and trust that the brands we've worked with through the years will continue to listen, innovate and create the products that female cyclists need and deserve.

    To our customers, we say a heart-felt Thank You! Your loyalty, support and feedback throughout our history are much appreciated.

    We will be closing our doors on Wednesday, September 28th. For items that are not final sale, we will continue to provide refunds and customer support via email through October in accordance with our 30 day returns policy.


    Tailwinds,
    Susan
    Susan Otcenas & TE Staff


    In the facebook comments, Susan said that the forum would continue, with volunteers for moderators I think. I'm sure we'll hear more when she has the chance.

    As I mentioned on another thread, I just placed my last order from them. And I am sad.

    - Red hardtail 26" aluminum mountain bike, Bontrager Evoke WSD saddle
    - Royal blue 2018 aluminum gravel bike, Rivet Pearl saddle

    Gone but not forgotten:
    - Silver 2003 aluminum road bike
    - Two awesome worn out Juliana saddles

    I am sad for Susan as a business owner and cyclist who lives out in action for the products...for real what she sells. It takes enormous energy and fiscal courage to be an entrepreneur for selling products one has a personal passion/belief. My partner gave me as a gift one of the specially designed jerseys. I asked for it as a hopeful gift. He had it shipped to a Portland hotel..where he was staying temporarily during a cycling journey.. I'm going to browse the catalogue more..

    Crossing fingers for you NY. Hopefully neither you, nor any coworkers who don't drive you nuts have to move on!
