Tom's Summer Sale Concludes Today



Just a reminder to start the day off that Tom's Summer Sale is still taking place but wraps up today so if you are in need of clothing, nutrition, accessories, or a new bike stop by and check out our great deals!

Today I am going to highlight the Car Rack portion of the sale - 15% off any car rack in stock (and we just got a huge shipment in Friday of Thule Racks) so if you are in need of a Roof Rack, Hitch Mount Rack, Truck/Hatch Rack, or Spare Tire Rack then you should stop by the shop and check out our display wall and inventory.

We also stock Saris Racks and have a variety of models available from them as well.  There are even a few used racks available as well for even more savings.

A great way to test the your new Mountain Bike out is in the southern tier this week - Ellicottville Wednesday Night race series is happening (off this week due to Holiday but resumes next Wednesday).  A great week to get muddy and sweaty on the mountain bike!  Keep an eye posted on Facebook for some pictures from the Raccoon Rally yesterday that 4 of us from the shop participated in (and suffered immensely!)

Check out our Events Page

Travel By Bike Thursday - USED 56 LITESPEED BLUERIDGE

Used Litespeed Blue Ridge Touring Bike - Built up with 10 Speed Ultegra and XT Rear Derailleur Size 56.  Shipping included to Lower 48 $1275.00.  I can get more pictures for you - this is a friends but figured might as well post it here in case someone is looking for a touring steed made of Ti!

Last week we took a beautiful touring/commuting/do all bike in on trade - The LITESPEED BLUERIDGE.  It is built up with 10 Speed Ultegra and an XT Rear Derailleur which provides strength and reliability in the lower gears needed for touring with a full loaded bike.

The price on this bike is $1200.00.  It is available immediately and can even be shipped if by chance you live out of the area.  Here is a link to the review pages since the model is not made anymore.

For more information or to test ride the bike stop by the shop and check it out!  I am sure it won't last long and I even contemplated picking it up but decided to wait for my special upcoming bike addition.  We are open from 10-8 tonight so come and visit us.

Specialized S Works Evade helmet

Specialized has a new helmet out - the S-Works Evade. HERE is a review of it for you if interested.



Preliminary start lists are out for the 101st Tour de France next month.  Check out your favorite team HERE and see if your rider made the cut!

Specialized-Roval-Traverse-SL-Fattie-Wheel-(1)

Specialized is introducing a new wheel for mountain bikes - The Roval Traverse
To prove the concept, the engineering team used an angled grip table to simulate leaning a bike over in a corner. This helped them visualize what happens to tires at load, and proved the wider is better concept wasn’t just a placebo.

Studying the graph, you can see that the tire on the wider rim moves less under the same amount of force, which translates to better support and handling on the trail.
 
Available in Aluminum and Carbon.
 
A great way to test the your new Mountain Bike out is in the southern tier this week - Ellicottville Wednesday Night race series is tonight and the Raccoon Rally is this weekend also. A great week to get muddy and sweaty on the mountain bike!

Travel By Bike Thursday - SURLY LONG HAUL TRUCKER



Are you in the market for a touring/commuting bike?  The you should definitely check out the Surly Long Haul Trucker:

Over the years our Long Haul Trucker has developed a devoted following. People understand and appreciate the LHT’s dependability and everyday riding comfort, whether they’re cruising to the store or lost in the middle of nowhere. It was designed in all aspects to go the distance in relative comfort while hauling a bunch of stuff.
The LHT is in most ways a typical touring bike. It has a low bottom bracket and long chainstays provide comfort and stability. It’s got all the braze-ons, from rack mounts to water bottle cage bosses to fender mounts to a spare spoke holder. Like all our frames, it’s made of CroMoly steel. You’ll probably never need to have the frame repaired, but if you do you’re more likely to find someone who can weld steel than someone who can weld titanium or aluminum. Repair carbon fiber in the middle of Mongolia? Good luck with that.

For more information on the Long Haul Trucker or any other touring/commuting bikes accessories stop by the shop.  We are open from 10-8 today.

SUMMER SALE STARTS TODAY
