We now have one medium Surly Ice Cream Truck,  a large Salsa Beargrease, and a large Framed Wolftrax for rent.  Charge is $45 per day and if you end up getting a fat bike we will take the first rental fee off the price of the bike.  Call ahead they go out quick for the weekend.

Back And Open For Business! Winter Trails Day At North Fork Saturday The 9th!

We are back and ready for 2016 season, thanks for a great year in 2015 .  Its been a little chilly out there but from what we here the Southern Bonneville Shore Line trail is packed down from 22nd street trail head to above Weber State. We hear that the snow by the ski resorts even though groomed is still soft to ride on with fat bikes. The roads are dry for now and if you decide to head out remember we have tons of cold weather clothing on hand.

We now have three fat bikes for rent, a small, a medium and a large at $45 per day. I went out yesterday and this morning, I had an alright time but  because of the wind it was still soft in areas where it had drifted. As more trail get ridden we will post about them. This Saturday is Winter Trails Day at North Fork Park and we will be there with our three rentals so you can try a fat bike at no charge.

Next Saturday the 18th we will continue with both our bike maintenance class and spin class.

Bike maintenance class will begin at 9:00a.m. and  will  discuss both mechanically actuated disk brakes and hydraulic disc brakes.  We will identify, adjust, discuss brake caliper adapters, address different size rotors, and determine what types of fluid are used by different brake manufacturers.  Class will go from 9:00a.m.-10:00a.m..  The double doors on the North East side of the building, directly out of the parking lot as the front door will be locked.

Now to Fat bike rentals.  We have had such a demand for rentals in this category that we have added an additional two bikes to our rental bike fleet to meet the needs of our customers.  We have added a medium Kona Wo to the fleet as well as another large Salsa mukluk.  This brings our total number of bikes to 4 rentals.  Make sure to call ahead and reserve a bike if you want it for a particular date because they are going out a ton.  Cost is $35.00 per day.  Glad to see people are enjoying these bikes.
