Lake MXZ 303 Shoes Now In Stock, Tune-Up Special Still On!

Yesterday we received our first shipment of Lake MXZ303 winter riding boots.  Information wise it seems that as you look at these shoes you will want to size up a shoe size or two for layering and comfort.  We have on hand a size run from 44-47 Euro, American sizes 10-13. They will retail for $269.00 but man they look nice and feel like they are extremely well insulated.  So if cold weather shoes are in the cards for you come take a look.  We can also get Shimano cold weather shoes.

We had a customer through recently who was under the impression that because we had changed the signs out front the Tune-Up special had ended which is not the case. Our tune-ups will be on special through the end of March next spring so you have plenty of time to swing your bike by.  Thanks as always for choosing Skyline as your store.

Happy Halloween, Salsa Mukluks, Gift Ideas, And Cold Weather Gear

First and foremost Happy Halloween.  Just to bring everyone up to speed on where we are at this time of the year we finally have a Salsa Mukluk in large on the floor.  This means that we now have three different models of fat tire bikes to look at and test ride.  In a few weeks we will have a rental fleet of Salsa Mukluks in, we will have a small, medium, and a large for rent at $35.00 per day.

We have received the vast majority of our cold weather gear for you guys to look at and try on before it gets really chilly.  Gloves, coats, mittens, shoe covers, skull caps you name it. I have been assured by Lake Cycling Shoes that they will have my order of MXZ303 winter boots in days.  On that note Shimano is well stocked on their cold weather shoes and they are ready to ship right now.

To get ready for the holiday season we have started to stock a portion of the store dedicated to gifts for your friends, family or acquaintances that are cyclists .  We have tools kits, coffee mugs, pint glasses, flasks, computers, bicycle work stands and other gift ideas that have been popular and successful in past holiday seasons on display for you to look at now.  We will continue to add to this section as we get closer and will have a recommended list of gifts on the website by next week.

So all our customers have the ability to continue to ride even if you don't like to ride in the cold or don't have an indoor trainer we set up two spinning stations on our fitting deck that can be used for $5.00 dollars per session.  Call ahead and make sure that we have openings and that we don't have any fits scheduled.

Hiker Biker Incident, Southern BST!!

It has come to my attention that towards the end of last week there was an altercation on the Southern Bonneville Shoreline trail somewhere around the area of the 29th street trail head between hikers and mountain bikers.  This dispute escalated to the point that the Weber County Sheriffs were called.
As a mountain biker I understand the joy of riding a trail fast and pushing your limits.  I also understand how lucky we are as a cycling community to have the trail system that we do.  With this in mind please, please ride in a fashion on the trails that is enjoyable, but safe for yourself, other riders, hikers, horse riders or any other trail user.
What it comes down to really is that we as a group hold the future of our trail system in our own hands.  If we can pull together as a group and promote as well as practice safe trail use protocol we will have a trail system that is enjoyed by all different groups, if we don't we will begin the slow and painful process of being banned from trails.  There also needs to be an understanding and promotion of safe cycling within our own group, if you see a cyclist that is moving at a pace that is unacceptable say something.  It doesn't have to be rude in fact I think an informative position is the best.  A simple "Hey take it easy there is a bunch of hikers coming up," is enough to hopefully slow a rider down.  A statement coming from another rider is more likely to be accepted by the rider rather than someone getting yelled at by a hiker or horse rider.
Accepted trail rules around the country state that mountain bikers yield to all.  I know this can be frustrating but hey that's the way its been written and if it keeps me on the trails I'm off my bike in a heart beat. If someone yields make sure to thank them so when they think of mountain bikers they see a person that is thankful and smiling at them, little gestures go a long way in making a big difference.
Within the last year I have started to ride with a bear bell attached to my seat that rattles.  I a have found that this has made all the difference in the world with hikers.  Just this morning I was stopped by a hiker and thanked for having a bell.  He said he heard me and stepped off the trail so I could pass.  He did however say this is not always the case and he himself has been run off the trail multiple times in the past.  I think bells should be a must in whatever form for riders, whether bear bells that rattle when you remove the magnet, or a dinger on the handle bar get one and you will never look back.
You all know how much we appreciate you as fellow riders and customers.  It is this appreciation that makes me worry about the future of our trail.  Please be safe out there, enjoy the ride.  Thanks.

Preserve Your Steel Frame In Wet Conditions

Being a shop where we as a group and quite a few of our customers ride steel/chromoly framed bicycles it was a topic of conversation about who had coated the inside of their frame tubes in preparation for wet winter weather.

Just because you can't see rust on the outside doesn't mean its not rusting on the inside of your frame tubes from water entering during riding.  To prevent rust we can coat the inside of your frame with a compound called Frame Saver.  To coat the inside of a complete bike we will charge $75.00 per bike because we have to completely remove all the parts down to a bare frame and then put them back together and then tune the bicycle again.  For a bare frame that needs to be treated there will be a fee of $25.00.  We need about 24 hours with your frame because we apply multiple coats and we need to allow for it to dry as well.  If you have any give a call or send an email to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
