April Updates

Our Annual Spring Sale ended on Saturday, April 4th- during the course of our sale at least 67+ bikes found new homes! That is absolutely fantastic! We want to thank each and every one of our customers and friends for stopping in and supporting a local, small business. Having more people on bikes is always a positive thing, and we look forward to seeing more excited faces as they get to experience life on two wheels!

We are still around a month out on repairs right now. This is due to our Spring Sale and the fact we were constantly building bikes for those purchasing them and/or bikes for the floor. We are finally able to start working on repairs again and appreciate your patience.

We have been encouraging new bike owners to bring repairs in during our slower months, September-February. This is an excellent time to have service work done as many aren't riding their bikes all-year-round.

Your tuneup will not "go bad"; all you'll need to do when fair weather hits is pump up your tires and roll!

We'll do our best to bust out repairs as quickly as possible, and if you are patiently waiting, rest assured you will receive an email or phone call when your bike is in working order.

We have a helmet promotion happening (valid April 6th-April 20th)- bring in your old helmet and we'll take $5.00 off of a new helmet!
If it's been over 5 years since you've purchased a helmet or if you can't even remember when you acquired your current one, it's time for an upgrade!

The cost of a $40.00 helmet over 5 years winds up being just 2 cents a day! It's the least expensive life insurance you can purchase for yourself.

In other news, The 25th Annual Decorah Time Trials are coming up rather quickly and we want to remind everyone if they want to preregister, to pick up their entry forms here at the shop. They need to be postmarked or dropped off at Park and Rec by April 17th!

Please mark your calendars and spread the word, our shop will be closed on April 25th to attend the time trials.

We will be doing some fun things in May for Bike Month and Bike to Work Week!
May we will also be doing a fundraiser all month long to raise some funds for DHPT (Decorah Human Powered Trails)- we have some awesome prizes that will be offered, one being a $500.00 gift certificate to our store!

Starting May 17th Josie will lead an off-road women's ride. This is for those new to riding off-road and would like a guided ride. People are welcome to sign up individually or in pairs. Small groups of up to 4 people are welcome as well.

You can start preregistering yourself for Sunday rides now! For more information, follow this link and email Josie:

Last but not least we are extremely excited to announce that we are official Salsa dealers again!
This means we'll be able to bring you even more wonderful bike options to the table along with even more fatbikes as well!

We will have a Beargrease Carbon 1 fatbike available as a demo! Come down and see how a carbon fatbike rolls!

With Salsa we will have complete bikes available for purchase along with the ability to purchase framesets and custom build a bike that meets your needs. We are looking for feedback from our customers on what Salsa bikes and products they would like to see in our store. If you have thoughts, simply email us!

Fatbikes on the brain? We have a couple Trek Farley 6 (17.5 and 21 in.) and 8 (17.5 and 19.5 in.) bikes available!
