Some special deals

This has been one weird Winter. It started early in October, relented with a truly beautiful November, followed by December and January freeze/thaw/snow patterns have produced some of the worst street conditions we've seen since last Winter, at least. Believe it or not, it has been less snowy and had fewer truly cold days than the average. But for some reason, it still seems harsh. Rest assured, however, it won't last much longer. January, our coldest average month, is almost history. The long-term forecasts show warmer weather ahead. In three or four weeks, stuff will likely be starting to melt, and soon the sweet, sweet aroma of thawing dogshit piles will fill the air hereabouts!

We have some inventory to clear out, which means you can get some good deals just in time for Spring!

Surly Long Haul Trucker, 58 cm, Olive green (a now discontinued color) - this one was sold to a customer who rode it for just a few days before deciding he wanted a different size. We took the parts off the bike and put them on a new frame. Then we built this barely used frame up with more or less stock LHT parts that we had in our inventory. Compared to the stock build from Surly, this one has a more expensive crank (Sugino XD600) and headset (FSA Orbit XLII), but a less fancy rear derailleur (Deore). But since the frame is technically used (barely), the bike could be yours at the outstanding price of $975! (plus tax, pedals not included)

Redline Metro-9, 56 cm: This is a wonderful 3-season sporty city/commuting bike for a great price. Smart 1x9 gearing, fenders, and just a nice looking bike! Was $679, now $459.

Redline 9-2-5, 54 cm: Similar to the Metro-9, but a single speed. Was $579, now $379.

Note: The Redline bikes fit a little bigger than the stated size; add 2-4 cm to get an idea if these are your size. For example, I usually ride 56-58 cm Surly or Rivendell bikes, but the 54 cm Redline works for me.

Parts and accessories:
Tires: we have a lot of different tires, different sizes, different price ranges. Whatever we have in stock is 20% off until Feb 13. Come and find some that work for you. Get the same deal on tubes.

Pitlocks: These are probably the best anti-theft wheel skewers money can buy. The price usually fluctuates with currency exchange. Right now, the going rate on the internet for the set is $90. We have a couple sets left for $65/set.

Get our standard $75 tune up for only $50, IF you drop off your bike between now and Feb 13, AND you pick it up within a week of us calling you to tell you it's ready.

Everything else:
10% off any in-stock item(s) until Feb 13.
