Front & Rear Derailleur Class, Spin Class

This Saturday the 8th its all about derailleurs, identification, inspection, removal, installation, and then adjustments.  Regardless of what style of riding you do the theory of adjusting a derailleurs will be the same and what a life saver on long rides.  We will work on both front and rear derailleurs.  Remember to arrive a little early, class starts at 9:00a.m. and will go to around 10:00a.m. come through the double doors on the North East side of the building as the front door will be locked.

Spin Class will be at its regular time of 10:00a.m. and if we have enough for a second class it will be at 11:30a.m..  If you plan on attending make sure to call ahead so we can reserve you a spot.  For either class plan on coming a few early to get set up and warmed up.

Spring Summer Info, Group Ride, And Thanks For A Great Sale!!

Welcome to the 2013 riding season.  Thanks again for a wonderful turn out to or annual spring sale.  We set up just a ton of folks with new bikes and gear, looks like everyone is planning on a big riding season.

Group rides will start Wednesday May 1st.  We will meet at 6:00p.m. and leave at 6:30p.m. Plan on us riding every Wednesday through out the season unless there is a holiday or bad weather.  I will post any cancellations on the web site and on the Face Book account by 4:30p.m. the day of the ride.

Trails are starting to open up and be ride able as I type this.  Most of the Bonneville shoreline is ride able.  There may be a few muddy spots where it would be better to walk your bike rather than ride it.  If the trail looks muddy do everyone including yourself a favor and stay off it until its dry, damage done to trail systems this time of the year take forever to undo through the rest of the season and it give us a bad rap with trail managers.

I will post up trail digs as soon as I get them scheduled. Thanks for picking us as your bike store, we're excited for a great season.

Saturday January 12th, Spin Class and Bike Maintenance Classes

We've been back a couple days and after all the cleaning we're pretty confident it smells less like dust and moth balls in this place.  Thanks for letting us take a little time to clean and take a little break.

This Saturday the 12th of January we have a couple of thing going on.  Our spin classes are starting with a base fitness level test.  The first class with be from 10:00a.m.-11:00a.m.. The only thing that is a complication is that the first is full for this Saturday.  In light of this fact it has been decided that we are offering another class at 11:30a.m.-12:30p.m., we have a total of eight spots per class and there are still 7 openings as of this moment.  If you are interested call or send and e-mail as quick as you can because we expect this class will fill as well.  Cost per class is $5.00.

We also have bike maintenance this Saturday.  This class is a continuation of derailleur adjustment focusing on the front derailleur.  After I have finished the discussion on front derailleurs we will review rear derailleur adjustment which we went over before the holidays.  So if you missed last time and still want to learn about rear derailleur adjustment you have a second chance.  Bike maintenance class begins at 9:00a.m. and ends at 10:00a.m. come through the side door located on the north east side of the building.  Just a side note too I have had to adjust the calendar a little so the class schedule has changed.
