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 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.


Thump, Thump: Month Long Love Sale on Selected Bikes & Accessories January 27 2017

bicycle sale

Because we want you to feel the love (of cycling), we'll be having a sale on select bicycles and accessories all through the month of February. Time to say adieu to our fleet of rental bikes (to make room for new ones.) These sturdy workhorses from Brooklyn Bicycle Co. have served us well. It's a great chance to get a Dutch style city bike for very little money. Prices start at $250. We also have a handful of new bikes greatly marked down like a Brooklyn Bicycle Co. Willow 7 speed step-through frame originally $750 reduced to $550. We have one Simcoe Basic Roadster 3 speed step-over frame originally $700 now $500. Canadian company Simcoe makes stylish, classic bikes with beautiful details and durable paint finishes. For a tall kid or small adult we have a Torker U-3 in a 44cm frame. It's a 3 speed internal geared bike with a racier geometry and drop bars. Originally $500 reduced to $325. And we've knocked down the price of our last SE Wildman 20" bmx bike. Yours for $284.26 including tax for this popular kid's bike. As for accessories, all of our Racktime bags and panniers are 30% off. German company Racktime makes practical gear for commuters like the Side One Urban and Work It Wide that look good on the bike right into the office. A selection of Basil bags and panniers are also 30% off. Dutch company Basil is a shop favorite because of their bright and fun colors and patterns on items like their Basonyl Double Bag or Jada Mirte Shopper. Quantities are limited and prices quoted do not include sales tax unless otherwise noted. Stop in and test ride a bike Tuesdays through Saturdays.

We've just added some more bikes to our February sale! All Brompton folding bikes are reduced 10% off MSRP and all Pashley bicycles are reduced 15% off MSRP. The sale is good only on bicycles currently in stock.


Do the planet a favor: Ride your bike and carry your stuff in a Green Guru bag June 23 2016

recycled upcycled bike bags

Green Guru has been up-cycling old inner tubes and banners to make colorful and super practical bags to haul your groceries, beer, or whatever for a few years now. We like that they do this and that they're made right here in the USA. Win and win. We just got a new shipment of assorted bags in various sizes, shapes, and hot colors including the Dutchy Pannier and Touring Townie Handlebar Bag pictured. New items include the Upshift and Mini Clincher Frame Bags, the small Clutch and Transition Saddlebags for essentials only, and their new Andromeda Tote Bag that doubles as a pannier, very roomy and very stylish. Plus we have backpacks and top tube protectors. Because every bag is different, you'll have to stop into the shop to see what they look like.
