… post more photos of cool bikes that come through the shop!
I’ll start the new year with this one: Gotta admit, this rig is the s**t!!! Orbea’s top end frame offering, in the now defunct, Euskatel Euskadi pro team (R.I.P.) paint scheme.
This year marks another improvement on the Orca model. Improved aerodynamics, internal cable routing, new tubes shapes, and the ability to run electric or mechanical shifting systems. This one is fitted with Shimano Ultegra 6800. I shouldn’t really need to say much more, as I’ll let the bike speak for me.
thanks, and I promise to keep this site updated more frequently.
We’ll be closed on Thursday the 28th thru Sunday the 1st. We’re coming back on Monday for normal hours.
if ya need something over the weekend, feel free to email me @ firstname.lastname@example.org
I’ll get back to ya lickity split.
thanks, and do some over-eating this weekend. That’s my plan.
Starting RIGHT NOW! I’ve got to make room for 2014 bikes…which are trickling in. So what that means is, I’ve reduced the price on almost every 2013 bike is stock. The discounting is as much as 50% off. Discounts only apply to bikes in stock, and they’re discounted until they’re gone.
Stop in and check out what I’ve got. Or just come in to chat, as the weather is turning a little earlier than expected and it’s lonely in here. Penny is good company, but she cannot speak….
Yup. Every Thursday, for as long as the weather will allow, we’re gonna ride at night on some mountain bikes (though a cross bike would work, if you’re up to it)
We’re planning on meeting at the shop at 7:30 P.M. We’ll decide between Alum Creek Phase 1, or phase 2, and can car pool up there. Bring some lights if you gottem, and if you don’t I have several sets of loaners you’re welcome to borrow for the night (they’re first come first serve).
If it’s raining we will probably cancel, or we could figure out something else.
If you have any questions, or would like to criticize my lousy grammar feel free to call the shop. (614)891-5654
Maso out (bro dawg)!
You can do anything for 25 minutes right? Starting July 21 (Tomorrow) Cap City cycling club in Columbus is putting on a MTB short track series every Sunday afternoon. Mountain Bike short track races consist of a less than 1 mile course which participants go around several times in the allotted time frame (25-35 minutes). The races are held at Darree Fields in Dublin. These races are for anyone with a mountain bike (or access to a mountain bike) with any experience level. If you’re not having fun you’re doing it wrong. Here’s a flier with the times and dates. http://capcityshorttrack.files.wordpress.com/2013/07/2013capcitystmtbflyer_10.png?w=300 .
We will be there with a tent and a most necessary cooler of chilled refreshments. Come and stop by!
For real. We fix stuff…mostly bikes. We’ve got the tools, and the gusto to get your job DONE!!! I mean come on! Look at those tools, they are begging to be used to make your bike perform flawlessly, that’s what they were made to do.
You never need an appointment for repairs. Just bring yer rig in whenever you want, and we’ll be happy assess and address your bicycle issues.
What do you do after you graduate from college? Jump into a job, sun bathe in the Bahamas, retreat to your parents basement, or decide to do something totally awesome but also totally challenging? For the past few months I have been acquiring gear, reading blogs, talking to veterans, and doing a bunch of mountain biking to prepare for the Great Divide Mountain Bike Race . Ride The Divide mountain bike race is an individual time trial self-supported race from Banff Canada to Antelope Wells New Mexico along the Continental Divide totaling 2,745 miles. Yeah, lots of mountains. Although I will be racing this individually, I will be attending the race with my boyfriend Taylor and close friend Chris. Do I know there are bears? Yes. Have I seen the movie and saw that girl with the swollen sausage-like legs? Yes. Am I totally psyched and ready to see some breathtaking scenery over a multitude of terrains? You bet ya. As of now there are 78 people registered and only 1 other woman besides myself. Come on Ladies! This race is daunting, and in my opinion unfathomable. How much can you really prepare for riding 150 miles a day through mountains for weeks, without having done the race before (it is common for people who have done the race once, to do it again)? It was not long ago that I jumped on a mountain bike for the first time (September of 2011), but I have made many friends and acquired many bike things to encourage and make it possible for me to have a post-graduation pre-career freak out.
As my experiences in cycling accumulate, I acquire more excitement and enthusiasm about different types of events and disciplines.
You can track me along the route starting June 14 at http://trackleaders.com/tourdivide13 .
If you frequent this site (and I’m sorry it’s never updated) then you may have noticed, that the hours located to the right, have changed. —————————->
We’re extending the shop hours to 7 postmeridian through the week to keep up with the ever extending day light.
thanks, and hopefully I’ll see ya soon!
Yeah so…I got some stickers made. They’re pretty simple, but (obviously from the photo) pleasing to behold. They’ve got Penny plastered on em, and If you want to add to Penny’s ever-inflating ego you can have a couple to put places. Just let me know. Call the shop or e-mail me your address, and I’d be happy to send some out. Seriously! It would make me happy! Really! Do it!
It’s that time of year. Time to sell bikes on the floor to make room for next years model bikes. That being said, ALL previous year bikes are on sale. Yes. ALL OF THEM! Discounts are between 10% to 15% off original price. This includes road bikes from Orbea, Bianchi, and Torker. Cross bikes from Redline. Mountain bikes from Orbea. Gunnar and Biria bikes are not included in the sale (I mean they are ALWAYS priced modestly anyhoo).
Cool. Also. doing a special on complete bicycle Overhauls. Price is $160. Ok yeah, that’s the normal price but… through the rest of the year that price includes new bar tape, and new cables (that’s almost $50 worth of free stuff). Turn around time is no more than 3 days TOPS!
Not sure what a complete overhaul is, and why would you want to do that anyway? Well, it’s something you should probably do once a year at least. Nothing will increase the well being of your bike more than this. Here is what WE do:
1: frame is stripped of all components, cleaned/waxed, and inspected for damage. Threads chased, re-greased. .
2: all components are cleaned in the parts washer, and re-lubricated.
3: all bearing surfaces are cleaned and re-greased. new bearings as needed.
4: bicycle is re-assembled with new cables, bartape, and completely tuned.
your bike is going to perform flawlessly, and look totally badass! Why put it off any longer? Your machine has treated you so well this year. Why not pay it back and show it how much you love it?
this post is feeling longwinded already and my grammer is lousy
