We can’t wait to ride to with you!
Just in time and hot off the press, the first run of official 2014 Bike Peddler kits are in!
Our garments are anatomically designed to contour to a man or woman’s body. The micro-filament engineered polyester yarn gives our high performance DRYCORE fabric a unique softness, providing superior durability and comfort. The specifically shaped and engineered yarns increase moisture wicking capabilities and comfort with unsurpassed performance. The signature chamois is manufactured with a 5-layer construction and a Coolmax inner layer, for active moisture transfer. The 4-way stretch Canari microfiber top layer is delicately soft and quick drying and the custom perforated foam layer (5mm dimples) aids in additional moisture management. Open cell foam padding provides even, anatomical support throughout. Welded seams assure further ergonomic transition at taper points removing possible friction and irritation.
Combine those comfort features with an even sharper color-scheme and logo placement, you are not only going to look your best when winning your race, you are also going to let the entire field know that you are a member of the best team out there, Team Bike Peddler!
We are pleased to announce that the Bike Peddler is now an authorized dealer of Rudy Project helmets and sunglasses.
Rudy Project sunglasses have been voted “the best cycling glasses” by Men’s Journal magazine and their helmets are worn by professionals worldwide. In fact, the Windmax helmet is the official helmet of Peter Sagan, the 2012/2013 Tour de France Green Jersey winner. Whether you are looking for incredible style, impeccable quality, Italian construction or complete comfort, the Rudy Project has what you are looking for; they even offer prescription eye wear as well.
Feel free to stop in and sample some of the great Rudy Project helmets and sunglasses, grab your free Rudy Project iPhone case and maybe even take advantage of the Free Gift with Purchase Program too!

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!
We are also pleased to announce that we have $19.99 Dynamic Sport road tires from Michelin, Soda Pop fenders from Portland Design Works, the new Garmin Edge 510 and new flavors of NOW trail bars (these are unbelievably tasty)! Not only do we have what you are looking for, we are super happy to help you find it.

Ever wanted to get out, into the wild, work on your single-track, cross-country, all-mountain and downhill skills?
Have you been wondering what all the buzz about Black Rock, Dallas, Silvercreek Falls and Shelburg is all about?
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.
