Congratulations! You made it through the Polar Vortex of early 2019! Now, onto some fun bike info... Cool new product:
Fidlock Uni. Fidlock is German, and personally I am of the group that says Germany simply makes. good. stuff. So with all that said, they use a BOA system for the Uni, but have their own system for magnets on your bike. Pretty rad stuff! I love these because they are very secure and offer a great way to hold your water bottle. This is more secure than a bottle cage.
Best value for service:
Make sure to check out our subscription service options! They are a phenomenal value for both parts and service this upcoming season. There are two options: Performance and Safety. If you ride more often and attend events and/or race, Performance is for you.
Coolest bike the past month:
Norco Revolver! This bike is great for shredding the Central Indiana woods while dry enough, and it is now ready! It was a frame-up build from a crack in the frame. This customer didn't cause the break...it was a shipping company, so for anyone who needs a bike shipped and done well/right, let us know! It's great to have the capability to work with customers who want quality work done on their bikes so they are safe to ride.
Coolest product seen/felt/touched:
absoluteBLACK chainring set. This customer went from a traditional compact chainring set to a subcompact setup. absoluteBLACK has oval chainrings that are optimized for power. Science. While I've installed these before, they are still so neat! If you'd like to talk further and/or get these installed on your bike, we're here for that!
Upcoming this month:
CABDA - Bicycle Expo in Chicago. Follow us on Instagram for pictures and stories! @thecyclefix
Bike Party: "Best workout date?" tomorrow, 2/7
Schedule your spring season tune-up HERE
Here in central Indiana, there are (almost) always a few days to ride in January, February, and March. And since that's the case, wouldn't you like to have your bike ready to go when the temps get up-there-enough-to-ride? Well when the days arise, check the valve stems on both wheels. If they are NOT perpendicular to the rim, deflate the tires/tubes enough so that you can alter the valve stem angle. Then once they are at a perpendicular angle, air them up to the recommended pressure and have fun!
