Back To Regular Hours, Fat Bikes, Bike Class!

Welcome back all, hope the holidays treated you well. Thanks for another great year and we look forward to another. We are back to regular hours of operation and will continue on right through the spring and incoming dirt/ road season.

That being said it seems we are in the middle of a great time to ride fat bikes.  For all of you, including myself, that were asking for snow I guess we got it.  I was comping at the bit to get back open as soon as we had a good amount of snow on the ground.  I haven't been able to get out yet so if you have been on a sweet snow ride let me know and we will pass the word along as well. As you need gear we are fully stocked on cold weather gear, apparel, tires, helmets ect. Hope to see you out there soon.

This Saturday we will be talking derailleurs and will be going over theory, identification and adjustment of both front and rear derailleurs.  Class will begin at 9:00a.m. and will go through 10:00.
