Winter Riding Tuesday - TRACTION CONTROL

It looks like we are in for a long winter around these parts and what better way to stay in shape, work on bike handling skills, and just seeing some beautiful landscapes snow covered than on your bike.  You get clear roads a lot of the time and even then you might still come across an icy area that having a good set of winter tires will help carry you across.

As you can see in the picture above you can go with Studded Tires or a Wider & More Grip Softer Compound Winter Tire or you could have a wheel set with each of them at your disposal ready to change based on road conditions.  These tires will roll much slower than your current tires due to the softer compound and rolling resistance of the studs themselves but it just makes for a harder workout!

The biggest problem you are going to come across is getting the tires to work in a road bike frame.  The above pictured tires are for Hybrid/Mountain Bike frames but you can get away with some studded tires in a cross frame as well.  If you only have a road bike we can help you out by outfitting a new bike with these tires, fenders, and lights for your winter safety.

Are you 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 from 10-8!
