Getting Ready for the Countdown December 29 2016
There's still time to pick up a new bike or much need accessory before the end of the year. We have a good stock of SE bmx bikes like Big Ripper, STR Quadangle 29, or OM Duro (more 2017 silver So Cal Flyers expected early January!) If you've been dreaming of a cargo bike we have the new Benno Bikes Carry On and it's e-cousin, Boost. We have new stock of waterproof bags from Ortlieb and Carradice. And we always have a wide range of Brooks saddles, bar tape, and grips. Plus loads of other cargo bikes, family bikes, folding bikes, city bikes, kids bikes, and accessories.
We hope you all have a crazy fun (or pleasantly quiet) and safe New Year's celebration. We will be closing at 2pm on 12/31 and closed on New Year's Day. See you on the other side!
We've Made Room for More Cargo Bikes: Benno Boost E & Carry On November 09 2016
We're very excited to introduce two new cargo bikes from Benno Bikes: the electric assist Boost E and 27 speed Carry On. Both would be described as mid-tail length, like a "regular" bike but just a little longer, and both come with a beefy rear rack with optional front rack. The rear rack has a maximum carrying load of 110 lbs, so pile on the stuff plus your kid. The 24" wheels lower the center of gravity making it easier to haul goods and the wide tires make the ride more comfortable. While the 27 speed Carry On will be perfect for most folks, the Boost E e-bike with Bosch bottom bracket electric assist motor will provide much needed ease for distance rides or hill climbs.
Benno Baenziger is the namesake behind the new brand. He co-founded Electra Bikes in the early 90s and left the company after it was bought by Trek, "his restless desire to design better bikes and inspire people to ride remained, which lead him to create Benno Bikes in 2015."
We're the only shop in Philadelphia carrying these two bikes. Come check 'em out!
