after anything bike related, what would it be?

Okay, okay, I know it's an odd question, but I'm in debating the idea of buying a deli, and wanted to make it a biking theme. Unfortunately, I'm not the creative type, so I'm defering to you.

Ideally, the name of the sandwich would have something to do with what's on the sandwich. For instance, The Lance Armstrong Six Deck Dagwood.

If it was on 4th ave in Tucson - The Bike and Bake
Otherwise.....
Downhill Deli (maybe not)
Alle! Alle! Alley
Meals on Wheels (I think that one is taken)
Portofino del Peleton (migh have to adopt an accent)
6 Times Baby!!!
If it was in Kingman - Sandwiches and Crank(s)
If it was in Scottsdale - %

Actually, I have a name for the Deli already: The Broken Spoke
What? But I thought I had some good contenders there. You really looking a buying a deli? that's pretty cool. Ok sadwiches then....The Chamois Club (eww), EPO Clam Chowder, and then what you do is lure in famous cyclists and have them create a sandwich and then name it after them..."hmmm if its good enough for Lance its good enough for me..."

OK, how about these . . .

The OTBBLT. Needs no further explanation.

All heart smart/low fat menu items should be listed int he Weight Weenie area and have have little Lycra shorts icons next to them.

The big 6 decker Dagwood should be the "Apres Epic."

The cream cheese, shrimp, green onion, tomatoes and cashew wrap would be the "Homemade Tubeless Mix."

Drink sizes would be Flat Bar, Mid Rise Bar and Hi Rise Bar.

Subsitute SRAM and Shimano for Chocolate and Vanilla.

A toasted bagel with cream cheeese and a large coffee to go is the "Pre Ride."

A mound of corned beef hash topped with a poached egg is the "Road Rash."

Funny how you are looking at buying a deli. I'm actually looking to do the same thing...but with a Quizno's franchise. My friend already owns 2 and wants me to partner on a third.

Where will your shop be? Your theme sounds cool.

Thx...Doug

A center island in the new Performce Bike shop :).

Just kidding. It's way, way, way down the road, so I don't want to jinx anything.

That Quizno's thing from what I hear is a good idea. They are all over the place. What's the initial franchising fee?

the crusty cruiser

Crusty as in crusty buns, bread, crust etc and cruiser as in, well, cruiser, bicycle, etc, and as I recall there was a bike race in the early MTN bike days called that although I could be wrong.

The OTB (or the Endo or Faceplant) - any sandwich that is spicy, hot or crazy, that may make your head hurt.
The Paceline - a sandwich with many meats, turkey, salami, roast beef, ham, ect., like in a paceline.
The Main Packer - Ham & Cheese (the most common of sandwiches)
The Freeride - customer creates a sandwich of his/her choice
The Other Alloy - Pork sandwich (you know, the other white meat)
The "Hors Categorie" - giant sandwich
The Prime (preem) - roast beef, eh.
The Velodrome - daily soup
Wheel Sucker - ice cream

Plus, singletrack = smaller sandwich or less meat, doubletrack = larger ....

Over-the-Bars Open Face,
with a side of Switchback Salad (get some pasta with twisty shapes!),
a cup of Go Juice,
and a NoBonk Bar for dessert.

More . . .

Your foot long hot dog would be the "Top Tube."

An inside out California Roll would be a Knobby Tire.

Bran muffins would be Carbo Fiber.

The top secret fat free desserts would be made with Unobtanium.

Don't serve ANYTHING topped with Chamois Buttr. I just couldn't handle that.

A plate of assorted French cheeses with a bagette and some grapes would be the Tour de France.

Any sandwich made on a big sliced roll would be on a "Bob Roll," but you could also choose "Marla Rye."

How about a Pantoni Panini. You can deny there was anything in it.

A really nice mixed green salad could be "Roland's Greens."
