Christmas Gift List - CUSTOM WHEELS

I have this cool SS/Fixie bike The Nature Boy by All-City (sure you can do the Rick Flair Wooooooooooo right now if you want but you have to be dressed to the nines and have a fur scarf laden coat on as well - Google him if you don't understand what I am saying!) that I built up 4 years ago as a commuter bike.  The one thing I never did was put a great wheel set on it and I felt this was the time to do that.

I want to use this bike for some 2015 and beyond Gravel Rides so I went with a buddies recommendation - HED Belgium + (for a wider rim to handle a bigger tire) and some All-City Hubs to match the bike.  Ryan built them up for me and they came in as pictured at just around 1800gms.  I have not weighed my old wheels yet but will do that as a comparison and post something in the near future as well.

Stock wheels are generally a solid product based on your purchase point but going Custom Hand Built Wheels is a great way to reduce some weight and improve your ride as well.  Higher quality bearings in the hubs reduce friction which helps you roll faster - all of which lead to more speed on the bike.  So if you have a bike with stock wheels and are looking at ways of improving it come on into the shop and check out our inventory or talk to us about a build that you are interested in.

Are you planning on being out and about doing some running around today?  Want to stop by the shop and start your shopping or start working on your list?  Bring you bike along with you and drop it off for a Tune-Up and you can earn some Tom Dollars to use at Tom's Pro Bike.  As the picture above shows - purchase a complete tune-up and receive $15 Tom Dollars or purchase a Deluxe and receive $25 Tom Dollars to use in the store.  Tune-up must be completed by Jan 15, 2015 and the Tom Dollars are good until March 15, 2015.

Do you have a bike lover on your Christmas List?  Check out Tom's Holiday Specials.  If you are unsure of what to but pick up a Gift Card and let them chose from our inventory or get an idea from the Great Gift Idea section based on your budget.

We have some excess 2014 and older inventory that we are trying to clear out to make way for the 2015 models that are becoming available each day.  For 2014 you receive 10% off the MSRP and also a 10% Gift Card to use in the store.  We have financing available if you quality and we also have free lay-a-way: 20% down is all that is required to secure your new ride for the 2015 season and beyond.

Our 2013 and older inventory is marked down even lower as well.  It may not be as low as it was during our Reverse Auction Sale but you can still save a lot if we have your size and model choice available.

Indoor Race Series information is out. Click on the link to register and purchase your race credits because it is going on right now!  Sure the weather was ideal for outdoor riding recently but you saw what happened last weekend.  Don't miss out on some great winter training opportunities!

For more information on any of the above items stop by and see us today - we are open today and tomorrow from 10-6!
