It’s that time of the year again. The weather is changing and, in years past, this is about the time that we start to see a massive slow-down in service. However, the last few years have seen a significant change in the cycling industry, and what is usually the “slow” season has sped up to “moderately fast” and is on its way to an “A Group” pace. That said, with service staying steady and the holidays on the horizon, we thought we’d send out an update about what’s happening at the shop this Winter, service suggestions, general stocking updates, lay-away, and more. Check out the information below.
EVENT: SRAM DEMO DAY, RIDE, & PARTY
Saturday, November 19th, 2022
SRAM is headed to our shop on Saturday, November 19th to promote their new electric GX AXS Shifting system… and, of course, for a day of riding and partying (you all know how our events go). So, show up and go for a ride. Then come back for free food and refreshments. And get your hands on some Sram swag, get discounts on upgrading to Sram AXS Eagle groups, and learn everything you can about going electric!
Group rides are in the works, with more details to come. For updated information, be sure to follow the Facebook event here.
BLACK FRIDAY & SATURDAY SALE: ALL BIKES IN THE SHOP & SPECIAL ORDERS
Funny to think that two years ago we were going into the holiday season with absolutely no bikes in stock and very little in the distributors’ warehouses. Now, we are stocked full of bikes from some of the biggest companies in the sport – Scott, Specialized, Cannondale, Fairdale, and more! In order to make room for more inventory that will be arriving in the spring, we are offering 15% off all in stock bikes and upwards of 10% off select special orders! Get in here while the supplies last and claim a new ride for you or a loved one.
SPECIAL ORDERS & FUTURE INVENTORY
Along with bikes in store, each of our distributors is starting to see inventory flow back into their warehouses at a steady rate. This includes current-year bikes and new 2023 models that will be trickling more into open inventory in the coming months. That being said, special ordering a bike may be a good call if you want to get your hands on a new model before the arrival of bikes in the late winter and early spring. This sentiment also goes toward special orders of parts, accessories, and clothing.
If you’re reading this and you haven’t gotten your suspension serviced at all this year, you are well past the due date. General suspension service on most forks and shocks (from RockShox, Fox, and more) is recommended after every 100 hours of riding, with more detailed service and complete overhauls recommended after 150 hours of riding. Put it this way, if you ride 2 hours a week or more all year, it is recommended to get your fork and shock serviced at least once a year. Forturnately, we are able to perform most shock and fork work in shop. More worn or damaged parts may need to be sent out of the manufacturer for a warranty assessment or factory overhaul. Whatever the service needed, now is the time to get it done! Bring your suspension to us today, or give us a call to schedule an appointment for service.
We say it every year – NOW is the time to get your bike tuned up! With Spring and Summer filling our backlog of repairs out to nearing a month or more, the smart move would be to get any service, tune-ups, and upgrades done in the off-season to ensure that your bike is running as flawlessly as ever when spring time comes. We offer a variety of tune-ups that start around $70 and increase from there. Select services are usually at a discounted rate, but may not address everything that is going on with your bike. For a free assessment and detailed estimate of your repair, give us a call today!
