Finger Warmth Friday - GLOVES & BAR TAPE HEAT

Looking at ways to keep your hands warm on winter/cold weather rides?  Tom's has some great options for you and today we are highlighting AME Heated Bar Tape for Road Bikes or Mountain Bikes and gloves from Castelli or Sugoi.

  1. A'ME Heated Bar Tape:  A’ME Grips is introducing their NEW Heated Road Bike Wrap. This wrap is made in the U.S.A. and features bluPulse™ ‘Adaptive Thermal Regulation’ technology. This state-of-the-art technology combines intelligent micro electronics with thermal sensors in each wrap, and allows a rider to select between six temperature settings with a simple push of a button. A blue LED indicates both the selected temperature setting and heating status while the micro processor varies the amount of heat generated to maintain the selected temperature. These wraps allow for comfortable hand temperatures in all riding conditions, reduce fatigue, and maintain finger dexterity which improves a rider’s control of the bike.  MSRP with installation by our professional mechanics is $250.00

Castelli Gloves that I use for High 20's and warmer rides

Castelli's Estremo Glove are ones that I have just started using this year.  I love them so far and my one tip is to make sure you size them properly.  Castelli generally runs smaller than other brands and just be sure they fit properly.  MSRP is $80.00

Sugoi Lobster Gloves that I use for mid 20's and colder rides
Sugoi RSE Subzero Lobster gloves have been in my wardrobe for 2 winters now and they work great in very cold conditions.  I bought a size larger so that I can wear a liner underneath as well in case of a mechanical issue.  MSRP is $75.00

We also have Hand and Foot Heat Packs for sale individually.  If you are going to ride outside this time of the year preparation is paramount!

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!
