Ladies an gentleman, we are very pleased to announce that the first shipment of the official Bike Peddler saddle bags are in and they look fantastic!
We know that Bike Peddler customers really use their gear and expect a quality product. Our custom saddle bags are constructed from Cordura Nylon, backed by 14oz truck tarp, are marine grade hook and looped, triple-stitched at each wear point for maximum durability and contain YKK zippers with nickel plated closed bale sliders and a 500 candlepower 3M Reflective strobe loop for added safety. All critical seams are double-stitched, stress points are bartacked and every seam is bound with nylon webbing for strength and durability.
With the wonderful weather heading our direction, now is the time to get some style, functionality, pizazz and gear added to your summertime rides. Whether it’s adding some bells, attaching some racks and panniers or adding a dropper seat-post to your 29′er, the Bike Peddler has the latest, greatest and most unique bicycle accessories at the most affordable prices.
Come on in and take a look at the new Takeout Basket from Portland Design Works.
The Takeout™ Basket makes a handsome addition to any road or city bike. Take a trip to the corner store and secure a six pack of bottles in the roll top bag, or keep a food stash and extra layer of clothing handy for a day long gravel road ramble or a night on the town. The Takeout™ also features an eyelet for attaching light brackets and a spot to drop your u-lock. Check out the Takeout Basket in action:
Speaking about dropper seatposts; there is nothing more ride changing than the Giant Contact Switch Seatpost. This seatpost from Giant offers 4″ (100 mm) of total drop with infinite adjustment (no set height position). The Contact Switch seatpost uses a sealed cartridge with an internal floating piston for reliability and anti-twist. The seatpost comes in a size of 30.9 and is operated with a cable-actuated handlebar remote. From the moment that you install this component on your mountain bike, you will wonder how you ever managed your climbs and descents without one; kiss those days of dismounting to adjust your saddle height goodbye!
Eric and Kalan are busy building wheels this month! If you have ever had the joy of riding one of Eric’s hand-built tubeless ready beauties, then you already know the great advantage that road or mountain tubeless technology provides. And, if you have not had the opportunity to experience the wonderful and worry free ride of tubeless, come on in and ask as many questions as you want; our patient and experienced staff are always willing to answer your questions and assist you in any way possible. Also, if you have a few spare minutes, take the opportunity to browse the new tubeless wheel offerings from Giant, Shimano and Stan’s; they will change your ride, for the better!
Holy Moley! It’s that time of the year again; the time of the year when the Bike Peddler offers a huge selection of their Fall/Winter apparel for, at least, 15% off the lowest price marked! Yes, we are serious.
If you are in the market for new rain-gear, Gore-Tex, Wind Stopper, men’s or women’s long sleeve jerseys, cycling shorts, bib-tights, gloves, warmers, socks, shoes, vests, shirts, coats, thermal garments and heat-wear than you really should not miss this sale.
Joel C. hopefully in tandem (not on a real tandem) w/ Michelle C. & Kalan will lead the ride to the Dallas Trails. If weather becomes inordinately crappy, we may ride the Black Rock trails. The BR trials remain ‘buff’ in rain/wind/snow, unlike the Dallas trails, which become creeks mingled w. sections of cement-like mud. Please direct questions to firstname.lastname@example.org. Cheers.
Well want and wait no more! Every Sunday, starting at 10:00 AM, join Joel Cleland, Eric Vickers and many other Bike Peddler employees on a afternoon group mountain bike ride. The theme of the ride is XC and all ranges of riders are welcome; EVEN GIRLS! In fact, we highly encourage a female turnout and who knows, you might even get to ride with the amazing, talented and charismatic Michelle Cleland (she rules).
Bring your bike, your gear, your helmet and a great attitude. Remember, pack some food, tools and stay hydrated.
The group will meet at the Bike Peddler and, from there, decide the ride details/location and theme.
The ride scheduled for 2/24/13 will be headed to the Dallas trails. If weather is foul then we will ride the Falls City/Black Rock trails.
More information on subsequent rides can be located under our ‘Events’ link.
This is just a friendly reminder that the Bike Peddler is open on Sundays, from 11 AM to 4 pm. Sunday’s are an excellent day to come on down, casually browse our new inventory, talk shop with the crew and pick up some much needed items. Our talented staff is eager to help you pick out that important Holiday gift for that even more important special someone in your life.
We are pleased to announce that we have the Reign 2, from Giant, in our showroom. This awesome, sub 30lb All-Mountain bike boasts six inches of aggressive Maestro Suspension for maximum control when you need it most. Giant designed the Reign with a super strong, balanced ALUXX SL aluminum frame built upon confident geometry and a stiff, tapered OverDrive 2 front end. Add a 15QR thru-axle fork and reliable components for maximum bicycle manipulation. The Reign is your ticket to mastering technical climbs and the roughest descents, all day long, over and over again!
