'Tis The Season: Bicycle Gift Ideas (Part I) December 03 2016
We have lots of bikes that would make great gifts: for your wheelie well behaved teenager how about a greatly sought after SE Big Ripper, or for your city hopping commuter a Brompton folding bike would be perfect, or perhaps the whole family deserves one big Babboe Curve cargo tricycle. But if a new bike isn't in your budget, we have on a smaller scale (and easier on the wallet) these lovely bicycle prints by Brooklyn artist Taliah Lempert. Tahliah is renowned for her bicycle portrait paintings. We have a numerous assortment of her colorful prints that would look good on any wall in your house. They come numbered and matted with prices starting at $25. We also have some magnet sets, temporary tattoos, and note cards that she's adorned. Prices start at $5.00. Come to the shop to see what we have.
Featured Product of the Week: Racktime Boxit February 20 2015
Most folks have heard of Ortlieb, the German manufacturer of great waterproof panniers and bags. Well let us introduce you to their sibling, Racktime. Like Ortlieb, Racktime makes bags and panniers but also baskets and containers, like the Boxit pictured, that fit onto their proprietary front and rear racks with their Snapit System. This means the rack and container work like one to fully support the load you're carrying. The Boxit is a two in one container: load your gear in the rigid plastic tray and place securely in the tubular frame or don't use the tray. Your choice. We like the way the Boxit looks and we like that it has a load capacity of up to 50lbs. Comes in two size options: large (approximately 21" x 14" x 6") and small (approximately 18" x 12" x 6".)
While The Reindeer Are Off Duty... December 18 2014
While the reindeer only work eight hour days, five days a week, Santa goes 24/7 delivering your gifts on his bicycle. Bet you didn't know that. We have lots of great gift items to throw in your basket, like locks from Abus, cool and colorful helmets by Nutcase, locally made cycling caps by Alloneword, kids balaclavas (also made in Philly) from Rebourne, Flip Flop balance bikes from Yuba, classic cycling bags from Carradice, and much, much more. Don't have a basket (or rack or pannier bags?) We've tons of options from Ortlieb, Racktime, Wald, and Basil (to name a few.) Better yet, we have cargo bikes from Pashley, Soma, Xtracycle, Yuba, and Gazelle, to get even more stuff home. Don't know what to get? We have gift cards too!
