Open hours cancelled, July 20th

Open hours will be cancelled on July 20th for shop cleaning. Sorry! Come see us on the 27th!

my favorite fender

I’ve decided that this is the best invention ever:
I got one on sale for $14.99 from either chainlove or bonktown, I’m not sure which, but it is great. I can switch it between my two bikes, and it even is extendable. I’m not sure I would have paid $30 for it, but not knowing what it was exactly or how good it was when I paid $15, I would now say it’s a great investment for either price. And I have a stripeless back to show for it 🙂

Pre-snowstorm shop-closing

Due to the impending snowstorm, open hours will be cancelled this week. We will be busy building snowmen and making snow angels. If it doesn’t snow, we will be busy doing snow dances for the snow that was supposed to happen. The shop should reopen next week. Please also stay posted for potential changes in spring semester hours. Happy biking in the snow!
