Well everyone, it’s been a really tough decision but I have decided to close the bike shop at the end of this month. I will however, still be available myself for repairs and such, and will still be able to order parts outside of the shop. Hopefully come next spring I will have something new worked out and bring the shop back. Thank you all for your business and support and keep on riding!
The shop will be closing early on Tuesday at 5pm. We will reopen Wednesday at noon. Sorry for any inconvenience.
It’s finally here! The 4th Annual Utica Tweed Ride. I hope you all are ready and excited! As usual we will be meeting at Cafe Domenico at 11am and will be heading out at Noon. The planned route is about 8 miles in length, taking a loop around East Utica and finishing back at the cafe. An after party will take place after the ride at The Dev at about 2pm. Hope to see you all there!
Also, the bicycle shop will be close this Saturday for the ride. If you need anything last minute, get ahold of us and we can arrange something.
I can not for the life of me figure out how to change the sidebar on this page(they changed the interface last month or something) but we now have new hours for spring.
Tuesday thru Friday we are open 12-7pm
Saturday we are open 10-5pm
Sunday and Monday we are closed but available by appointment
The weather is finally turning and feeling like spring and we hope to see you all down at the shop soon!
March 11 will mark the return of Monday Night Rides! Meeting at 6pm at Cafe Domenico and The Green Onion Pub. I know it may seem odd to have two different meeting places, but they are directly across the street so it all works out. Don’t forget to bring your bike lights as the ride will likely finish in the dark. Hope to see you all there!
The shop is open with normal hours again!
The trip to Louisville for the 2013 Cylocross Worlds was just awesome. America took 4th in the Junior field and 2nd in the Elite Woman’s field. By the time the Elite Men’s race start there was well over 10,000 people crowding the course and the sound of all those fans was intense. There are some great photo sets and videos out on the web but here is one of my favorite videos.
Also, it is time to get ready for spring. The shop is under a little bit of construction right now, so if you stop down, I apologize in advance for the mess. I am also running a Pre-Spring Tune Up Special. Now until the end of February tune ups are only $20! That’s a $5 savings off the regular price. Get in now before the spring rush!
Hey all you bike people, the next couple weeks are looking a bit crazy for open hours for the shop, so here is the run down.
Today, Friday, the shop will be closing early at 2:30. Something has come up with my part time job and they really need me there.
Next week, the plan is to be closed during the day until 3:30 and then open regular hours in the evening. Unfortunately due to my part time job being in a real bind, these hours may have to change and I do not know when the shop will open. If you are planning to come down, you best bet would be to call first or ask on our facebook page.
Now the following week, the last week of January, the shop will be completely closed. I am taking a trip to Louisville, Kentucky for the 2013 World Cyclocross Championships. I’ve been looking forward to this for years, and it is looking like it may be a great year for American cyclists.
So I apologize in advance for any inconvenience this hectic schedule may cause anyone. Hope you are all finding time to get out and ride on these cold, wintry days. Spring will be here soon though!
The weather these last couple days has just been absolutely gorgeous! I really hope many of you have been able to get out on the bike and take advantage of it. And if you haven’t? There is a group ride leaving from the shop on Saturday at 1:30pm. Route will probably be 15-20 miles in length(more if people are up to it). So if this weather just has you itching to get out, but haven’t been able to so far, come down and join us! The forecast for Saturday is BEAUTIFUL!
On another note, we all known how much of a pain keeping your drivetrain clean can be, especially in the winter. So if your chain and gears are getting all gunked up with winter road grime, bring your bike down here to the shop where we will clean it for you!
