TT/Triathlon Tuesday - RACE WHEELS

As we mentioned yesterday - Tom extended the sale until 3/15/2013 for the Spring Wheel Sale.

Also for those that missed yesterday's blog Tom has extended his hours:

We have new hours
Tom had been hearing from his customers that it was not always possible to get to the shop with his hours that he had been using since the shop opened.  So he listened to his customers and effective March 1st here is the new schedule (yes they are in effect now!)

Monday: 10-8
Tuesday: 10-8
Wednesday: 10-6
Thursday: 10-8
Friday: 10-6
Saturday: 10-6

You will not that we are now open on Wednesday and later on every other day.  So if you had a difficult time making it to the shop during the week check out our new schedule and come and see us at the shop!

Today we are going to discuss some different Triathlon/TT Race Wheels that we stock at Tom's Pro Bike.  A top of the line wheel set is a great way to save weight, increase speed, and therefore improving your overall bike splits during the race.  No, they are not inexpensive but the return is there if you are looking to improve your race performance.

I am going to chose 2 wheel sets that are on special as a highlight but remember we have many other options available to you so check out the sale flyer to see other "Sale" options.
