The Tour de France is over, which means cyclocross season is almost here. If you don’t know what cyclocross is, check out this video: What is cyclocross?
If you do know what cyclocross is, then you know that the new Niner BSB9RDO is awesome and that you want it. Well, you’re in luck, we just got one. Come check it out while it lasts. These bikes are super hard to get, so this is kind of a big deal.
Many of the folks from the shop will be racing this year, so come out and race with us or just cheer/heckle us on! Check the schedule of races here.
With some of our staff heading back to school, we have a position available immediately. Sales or service, full or part time. At least some experience desired (mechanical aptitude, sales experience, etc.). Stop by the shop to pick up an application.
Things change: the weather, policies, procedures, opinions, etc.. This event is no exception.
On Tuesday, July 8th we’re doing an open demo on some awesome Niner mountain bikes starting at 3pm. The Niner Bikes demo truck will be set up at the shop with some Air9RDO, Jet9RDO, RIP9RDOs, a ROS9, and a RIP9 Alloy that we’d love for you to test ride. You’re welcome to ride around at the shop or load it up and take it somewhere (Saw Wee Kee, Palos, etc.).
Then at 6pm, we’re going to load up into as few cars as possible and head down to Saw Wee Kee for a group ride (volunteer drivers welcome). You’re welcome to take a demo bike or ride your own. Sizes and models are limited, so call us if you’d like to reserve a demo bike for the group ride. *Please note: Demo bikes need to be picked up from the shop- they will not be available for pick up or drop off at Saw Wee Kee.
At around 8pm we’ll head back to the shop where we’ll hang out, talk bikes, and grill.
Come on out, bring a friend, ride a new bike, meet some new people, and have a good time. I’ll see you there. -AB
Attention (aspiring) mountain bikers: our friends at CAMBr are hosting FREE mountain biking classes. Don’t miss out on this excellent opportunity to further your skills or develop some new ones.
It’s been a while since I’ve done a real post here. Things have been rocking here. We’ve been very busy getting people riding bikes. Tune ups and new bikes. It’s all good. Spring is our Christmas. I have a list of posts to write, just no time to write them. Come hang out at the shop and I can tell you about them in person. We like human interactions.
Our goal is to get as many people riding bikes as possible. We’re getting to repairs and tune ups as quickly as we can, but we still have about 7-10 days worth of tune ups waiting here. I’m getting grease all over my keyboard as I type this, waiting for a chain to finish soaking in the degreaser. We appreciate your patience, but understand that some people can’t (or don’t want to) be without their bike for that long, so we offer a rush service option. It’s an additional $30 on top of a tune up and we’ll have it back to you within 24 hours (weekdays only, please). Since we already have all our days scheduled and book up 7-10 days out, that covers an hour of overtime pay and dinner for a mechanic to stay late. We think that’s reasonable. We hope you do to.
Get out and ride!
