Service Tip of the Week

 Now is the perfect time of the year to pamper your bike.  A few things Tim and Riley, from our service department, recommend are:

  • Changing cables and housing – whether it's brake or shifting cables, it is recommended that you change them periodically, otherwise your bike can suffer from poor shifting and brakes that do not release properly.
  • Replacing Tubeless Sealant – Tubeless is back and many bikes come standard with this feature.  Sealant should be replaced every 2-7 months depending on use and climate.  With the cold setting in it’s a good idea to check your tubeless sealant and probably replacing it.
  • Bar tape – Bar tape is a sponge for sweat, which in turn creates corrosion on your bars.  Make sure to change your bar tape periodically to prevent any damage to your cockpit.

Erika’s Bike of the week

2018 Specialized Fuse Carbon Comp 6Fattie

Fatty Mountain Bikes have some awesome cool factor.  She points out, “If you are looking for a hardtail capable of doing rides usually suited for Full Suspension bikes this is it.  The extra big tires give you the traction, control and confidence to tackle some rough terrain while keeping the climbing ability and precise handling of a hardtail”.  Additional features that make this bike a good all terrain bike are:

  • Dropper post for those steep descents and tight corners
  • Lockout on the fork for smoother faster XC type terrain
  • One-by drivetrain makes things simpler without sacrificing gear range
  • Carbon frameset provides a stiff yet smooth ride

E-Bikes... Why?

We are ready for E-Bikes!  There are many benefits to riding an E-Bike.  Great reasons to ride one include:

  • Save $ and Time on your commute – With no need for gasoline, insurance, tag (at least in GA) it basically pays for itself when you commute on one.  It also gives you the flexibility and agility of a bicycle when in traffic which saves you time which in turn saves you money!
  • Get fit while having more fun – The pedal assist makes sure you are not cheating your way out of a workout.  You still pedal and sweat, however, you’ll be travelling at twice the speed which means more distance covered and more to see and enjoy 😊
  • Keep up with your friends – Can’t stay with your co-worker who rides 300 miles a week but would like to ride with him/her? This may be your answer.
