Bike Class Schedule Changed, Skyline Holiday Break Changed!

This last Saturday there was a great turn out to the bicycle class.  On that note for all of you that came thanks for being there, sorry I was so gosh darn sick.  We had a great discussion on chains, how to measure, install, break ect. but it went a little longer than I had planned which is awesome.  What this means though is that the calendar will be off a little and I will change it as soon as possible.  Next week we will be doing cables and housing to get us caught back up so all the classes will be pushed back a week.  If you have any question on schedule call 801-394-7700 or shoot an email to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

I have adjusted the days that Skyline Cycle will be closed after the 24th of December. On the calendar I originally had us closed until January 9th.  In light of the fact that fat bikes are taking off this year and we are excited to provide any support we can we will be back and open for regular business hours on January 4th which is a Wednesday.

As we continue on into the holidays if you need gifts that friend stop in, or if its time to get a gift for your self let us know.  Thanks as always for letting us be your bike store.
