High Visibility Tuesday - CASTELLI CLOTHING


Visibility on the bike is key to safety and as you can see from the picture above we have quite the inventory of High Visibility Bicycle Gear from Castelli.  I can honestly say that this is the first year that I have bothered purchasing gear like this and I ride year round in all conditions.  I have a Reflective Vest that I would wear periodically, but if I was commuting it was useless since I also carried a backpack and it covered up the reflective material from the rear.

If you have a bike rider on your list or you are compiling your shopping list stop by the shop and check out our clothing and accessories.  Of course we have new bikes as well, but if one of those is not on the list we have many suggestions to make your bike rider smile on Christmas morning.

Fat Bike Monday - SPECIALIZED FATBOY EXPERT



We all know what was brewing up last week at this time and now that winter is upon us you should check out the versatility of the Fat Bike.  Specialized has 3 different model levels of them available and today we are highlighting the Specialized Fatboy Expert:

All the fun of a fat bike with the performance of a Specialized. The Fatboy Expert combines a lightweight frame and fork with 4.6" Ground Control tires to create a geometry similar to Specialized 29er geometry for nimble handling in the most extreme conditions.
  • Fully butted M4 Premium Aluminum frame w/ up to 5-inch tire clearance is lightweight and stiff
  • Specialized FACT carbon fork w/ 5-inch tire clearance for stiff handling
  • Fat 26" disc, alloy single wall rims are designed to handle even the worst terrain
  • Specialized Ground Control Fat 26x4.6" tires roll over anything
  • Custom e.thirteen, PF30, crankset w/ 100mm spindle delivers power and shifting precision
  • Shimano Deore, hydraulic disc brakes w/ dual piston stopping power in all conditions
  • SRAM X0 Type 2, 10-speed, medium cage derailleur for crisp and reliable shifting
We have a good inventory supply available but I imagine after last week they are going to move pretty quickly.  MSRP on the Fatboy Expert is $2,700.00.  Now that you are free from the winter lockdown - stop by the shop from 10-8 today and check out our inventory, take one for a test ride, and enjoy this winter and the great conditions we have around Western New York!

Lake Effect Snow Tuesday - LAUF FORK


I have been watching the Lauf Fork for a while now and have just become very interested in it.  I am thinking about adding one to my "Gravel Grinder" rig and along with the CobbleGobbler seat post you could turn a cross bike into a mini-Full Suspension Gravel Rig.  Keep your eyes open for further posts concerning that transformation.

Tom's has access to the Lauf Fork through QBP now so if you have an interest in adding this type of "suspension" fork to your bike arsenal stop by the shop.  29" (700) size are available now and 650b (27.5") will be available after the new year.

If you have been following the blog you have seen this photo of Tom in Arizona wearing his ASSOS kit.  We recently became an Authorized Retailer for ASSOS and their outstanding line of clothing.  Today they announced a special Facebook promotion where you could win signed Swiss National Cycling Team jerseys.  First hurdle is owning some ASSOS gear so stop into the shop today and take a look at our inventory.  While you are there ask Tom about how comfortable and durable their clothing is.  Nothing like an honest review right from the wearer of the clothing!

Protect That Noggin Thursday - SPECIALIZED HELMETS


Maybe the person on your Christmas Shopping List doesn't need a new bike and you are wondering just what could you get them then?  Well, believe it or not, helmets do "wear out" and need to be replaced periodically and most definitely anytime you are involved in a Head Strike Crash.  I don't know about you, but I really don't want to find out if my helmet is not working properly too late in the game and replace mine every 3-4 years or so but the rule of thumb is 5 years maximum.

At Tom's we carry Specialized and Bell helmets and have a great variety of sizes and colors for you to chose from.  Above is the Specialized Echelon:

With a sleek and fast look, the Echelon presents a compact profile on a rider's head. Increased ventilation and ergonomic design—with great fit, comfort and ventilation—make it the ideal helmet for road cycling enthusiasts.
  • Tri-Fix web splitter for improved comfort and ease of strap adjustments
  • Easy-adjust, Headset SL fit system with four height positions and micro-adjustable dial
  • 4th Dimension Cooling System optimizes ventilation
  • Composite matrix internal reinforcement allows larger vents for greater cooling
  • Reflective decals for added nighttime visibility
  • Complies with one or more of the following safety standards for bicycle helmets: CPSC, SNELL B90A, CE and AS/NZS
Stop by the shop today from 10-8 to check out our Helmet Inventory and start putting your Christmas List together.

Toes Warm Thursday - SPECIALIZED DEFROSTER SHOE (ROAD or MTB)



We all know what is coming upon us very shortly - Cold and Snow!  But does that mean you have to stop riding?  There is an old saying out there: There is no such thing as bad weather just bad clothing!  The key to winter riding is keeping your extremities warm and comfortable and a great way to keep your feet warm is with the Specialized Defroster:

Don't let rain or cold stop your ride. The Defroster Trail features seam-sealed bootie construction, Thinsulate® insulation, and a neoprene collar to help keep your feet warm and dry even in the worst conditions. A grippy rubber sole provides great stability in slippery conditions.
  • Thinsulate® 400 gram insulation for warmth, with waterproof, seam-sealed internal bootie construction and reflective heat-loss barrier in the sole
  • Sealed canopy and neoprene collar keep heat in and water out
  • Nylon composite sole with rubber tread for wet weather traction: 6.0 Stiffness Index
  • Single Boa® L4 dial for a snug fit
  • High visibility reflective accents for low-light riding
  • Wide fit to accommodate winter weight socks—no need to size up
  • Durable sheet rubber heel and toe protection
  • Body Geometry outsole and footbed optimize alignment to improve performance and comfort
  • 2-bolt cleat pattern fits all major MTB pedals
  • Approximate weight: 480g (1/2 pair 42)
I just added these shoes to my wardrobe for this coming winter and got a chance to break them in last weekend on a 5 hour ride in High 30's/Low 40's weather.  My feet never once knew it was that cool out and they were very comfortable walking around in as well.

MSRP: $200.00 and we have the Mountain Bike (2-Bolt) and Road Bike (3-Bolt) Models in stock so stop by the shop today from 10-8 and check them out.  You can start with your Christmas list or get some ideas for others.  



If you have been following the blog you have seen this photo of Tom in Arizona wearing his ASSOS kit.  We recently became an Authorized Retailer for ASSOS and their outstanding line of clothing.  Today they announced a special Facebook promotion where you could win signed Swiss National Cycling Team jerseys.
