Group Ride! Fat Bikes Have Shipped! Cold Weather Gear!

Looks like a great evening for a ride.  We are going to try and leave as early as possible because we are starting to get pushed a little light wise. Remember we will leave no later than 6:30p.m..  See you all tonight.

We are getting ready for a great fall and winter riding season.  On that note we have shipped Framed Minnesota bikes and we have stocked a good amount cold weather gear already to get ready for the chilly weather ahead. Here's praying for a ton of snow this year so we can all go play in it.

We're Back, Bike Classes, Spin Classes, Ogden Nordic Winter Trails Day!!!

Sorry about being a minute behind with this note we got back Monday the 5th and have been busy ever since, so thanks for keeping us running in January.

This Saturday the 10th we will continue bike classes with cable actuated rim brakes.  We will identify different types, talk about adjustment, pad wear and replacement.  Class starts at 9:00a.m. and will conclude at 10:00a.m., come through the double doors on the North/East side of the building, the front door will be locked.

Spin classes will begin January 17th, make sure to call ahead and reserve a spot.  We will have seven spots available for the first session and will hold a second if it looks like the first is going to be full every week.  If you plan on coming let us know as soon as possible that way we can determine how many classes.

This Saturday the 10th the Ogden Nordic Alliance will be having their annual Winter Trails Day over at North fork from 9:00a.m.-1:00p.m..  We will be over there letting people demo the Salsa Mukluk 3 rental we have for no charge.  If you want to demo all you need is a drivers license to trade us for a spin on the fat bikes.

Bike and Spin Class Saturday the 18th, Even More Fat Bike Rentals!!

Next Saturday the 18th we will continue with both our bike maintenance class and spin class.

Bike maintenance class will begin at 9:00a.m. and  will  discuss both mechanically actuated disk brakes and hydraulic disc brakes.  We will identify, adjust, discuss brake caliper adapters, address different size rotors, and determine what types of fluid are used by different brake manufacturers.  Class will go from 9:00a.m.-10:00a.m..  The double doors on the North East side of the building, directly out of the parking lot as the front door will be locked.

Spin class will be held at 10:00a.m. for the first session and 11:30a.m..  We were under the impression that 10:00a.m. last week was full but we had a few folks that couldn't make it so there are still spots open.  Make sure to call ahead and reserve a spot for either class.

Now to Fat bike rentals.  We have had such a demand for rentals in this category that we have added an additional two bikes to our rental bike fleet to meet the needs of our customers.  We have added a medium Kona Wo to the fleet as well as another large Salsa mukluk.  This brings our total number of bikes to 4 rentals.  Make sure to call ahead and reserve a bike if you want it for a particular date because they are going out a ton.  Cost is $35.00 per day.  Glad to see people are enjoying these bikes.

Fat Bike Rentals! Fat Bike Festival January 24TH, 25th and 26th.

We have added a medium Surly Pugsley to our fat bike rental fleet, the other bike we rent is a Salsa Mukluk 3 in a large.  Rental of either bike is $35 per day making us the cheapest fat bike rental in town.  If you plan on renting either of the bikes call ahead and reserve a spot because they have been going for rent a ton.

A heads up that on the 24th through the 26th Ogden and QBP are hosting the Global Fat Bike Summit.  Sounds like on the 24th there will be seminars starting at 10:00a.m. at the Summit Hotel, costs $25 per person and goes until 4:00p.m.

The 25th there is a festival that will take place at the Mt. Ogden Golf Course from 10:00a.m. until 4:00p.m. and it is free.

Sunday the 26th there is an Industry Fun Ride planned at Snowbasin, but you have to bring your own bike.

Thus far these bikes have changed winter into a riding season. We are looking forward to the Summit, see you there or here at Skyline if you need a rental or gear.
