New Items In Stock: Stan's No Tubes and Frog Bikes January 10 2017
Philadelphia, you asked for it, we got it. For all you winter warriors with tubeless tires you'll need to stay pumped up. We just got in some essentials from Stan's NoTubes that will keep you rolling right through the cold and into the warmer seasons: sealant, sealant injector, rim tape in various sizes, and valve stems for mountain bikes or road bikes. And if what we have isn't quite the right thing we can always order it for you.
A couple of months ago we told you about some new kids bikes we'd be stocking: Frog Bikes. A handful have just hopped (groan) into the shop. If your child is ready for a real bike, one with gears and hand brakes, one that'll keep up with the grown ups (but more likely surpass) then this is the bike. Their Hybrids are available in various frame sizes: 52cm for a kid 5-6 years, 55cm for 6-7 year olds, 62cm for 8-10 year old kids, 69cm for children age 10-12 years, and 73cm for a 12-14 year old child. All bikes come standard with fenders and two sets of tires, smooth or knobby. You don't get all that with an adult bike! And they come in a wide range of color options if frog green ain't your thing. They also make child size road bikes and balance bikes for toddlers with pneumatic tires rather than solid plastic tires that you find on many balance bikes.
Coming Soon! Lightweight Childrens' Bikes by Frog October 12 2016
We are very excited for the newest line of bikes coming to the shop, Frog kids' bikes. Designed in England by a cycling mum and dad who wanted a lightweight kid's bike with kid sized components. They make a full range of bike sizes starting with balance bikes that have pneumatic tires and rear hand brakes, on up to 20 and 24 inch wheel road and hybrid bikes: basically shrunken down versions of grown up bikes (but come in fun colors, check out this one with polka dots! And with optional kooky accessories, like a horse for your handlebars.) We hope to get some bikes in real soon but you can also demo a bike at the Frog booth at this year's Philadelphia Bike Expo, November 5 & 6 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center.
Little Riders Gonna Wheelie Love These Bikes April 07 2016
Lil' Care Bear dreams of doing wheelies one day and knows the best bike to start on is this rad 12" Bronco from SE Racing. It's pretty sharp; comes with removable training wheels, rear coaster brake, and has a front hand brake like it's bigger cousins. Need the next size up? We have the 16" in stock too with the same features as the 12".
