Sent over from Jamie at NYCMTB:

Come out to EMS SoHo from 6-9pm this Thursday night, July 15th, to check out the brand-new Shimano 10-speed Dyna Sys drivetrain at this exclusive NYC demo event. Is 10-speed mtb the wave of the future or just a fad? Sample it for yourself on a complete bike from Jamis and ask Shimano and Jamis reps any question you can muster. Plus it wouldn’t be a party unless we kicked in with some free beer, and Shimano’s throwing in a free raffle for a FULL DYNA*SYS SLX DRIVETRAIN and PRE-BLED XT BRAKESET!

To further sweeten the deal, EMS SoHo is offering 50% off bike tune ups and 20% off repair parts and labor for all NYCMTB riders from this event through September. Don’t miss this chance to get up-close-and-personal with the brand-new 10 speed Shimano drivetrain- see you Thursday night!
