Cycle Gear For Your Sweetie! February 09 2017

bicycle and bike accessories

Cycling is for lovers. Forget flowers, chocolates, or diamonds; your cycling sweetie will be much happier with something for the bike. Basil makes gorgeous and practical cycling gear like the floribunda patterned Bloom Carry All bag. You can still give your special someone flowers but ones that will last for many, many years. A Brooks leather saddle will also last a very long time (like your love) and this red B17 kinda even looks like a heart (if you squint a little.) Keep in mind, should it break (the saddle that is) we can mend it. One of the most important cycling accessories one should probably have is a helmet. With this Nutcase Pink Cheetah helmet you'll be saying, "I love your brain.I really do."  Maybe it's just time to part and move on....to a new bike. This Pure City Melrose 3 speed step through bicycle comes in a deep, rich red and is fully equipped with fenders, chain guard, rack, and bell. Its super comfortable too and just screams, "ride me through town and back!"

Don't forget we have a selection of bicycles and bike accessories on sale until the end of February.

Pure Fix Restocked: Pick One Up September 15 2016

A new semester, a new season, a new bike in a NEW color. We've just refreshed our stock of Pure Fix single speed bicycles with some of their new color options like "Don," a deep berry red frame with white rims and brown tires, and "Sand," a sandy neutral with matte black rims and brown tires. Pure Fix bikes have been a perennial favorite with Philly students because of their sleek light weight design and affordability. The perfect bike to navigate through busy city streets (don't want to be late for class) and effortlessly carry up steps to stash in a dorm room. But it's not just for students. It's for anyone who wants a quality bike to get from a to b without breaking the bank.

If You Can't Stand the Heat... July 28 2016

Fairmount Park

Dreaming of escaping the sweltering heat of the city to a cool verdant oasis? Hop on your bike and with your friends and family head to the country for a picnic. For us in Philadelphia heading to the nearest expanse of green and quiet isn't far at all. Fairmount Park has over 9000 acres of parkland right within the city limits. You'll easily find a shady grove to settle down and enjoy the sights and gentle sounds of mother nature. In some spots, like Cresheim Valley Creek pictured, you'd never know you were still in a major metropolis.

We have the bikes and gear just right for transporting your picnic fare. Green Guru make bags and panniers out of recycled materials. Try their Carbon Cooler to keep food from spoiling.

Linus have a large selection of traditional bikes and baskets. We like their oval basket strapped to the handlebar of their Dutchi 3 for a nostalgic look.

A crate on a rear rack is a great solution for hauling beverages. Pure City's wooden crate fits beautifully on the rear rack of a Pure City Bourbon and is perfect for carrying a six pack of your favorite sip.
