Now a TriBike Transport Partner Shop

Excited to announce we are now an official TriBike Transport Partner Shop. So for any of your races that they transport to, you can drop your bike here before the race and pick it up here after. How easy is that!

Just choose us as your partner shop when registering on the TriBike Transport website and then bring your bike bike by during the scheduled drop time. You will receive email communications, instructions and schedule from TriBike Transport during the whole process.

For a schedule of races that you can ship your bike to, check their website.

Here is how they put it:

“HASSLE-FREE. ECONOMICAL. UNPARALLELED. Since 2004, TriBike Transport has helped over 100,000 athletes by providing HASSLE-FREE, ECONOMICAL, UNPARALLELED bike transport. Whether using our Fully-Assembled, Pack & Ship or Valet Service, we take the hassle out of transporting your bike, so you can focus on your race.”

Pretty nice.

Go with a 1X System and Ditch Your Front Derailleur

If you have been in the shop lately and happened to hear or been a part of a discussion with me on SRAM’s revolutionary idea of a single chain ring drive train, you likely got more than an earful.  It’s exciting, simple, and very cost effective and I tend to get really worked up about the benefits and features that a lack of front derailleur has.  I am admittedly a SRAM guy, and preface my passionate discussion of all things SRAM by making that clear before going off the rails about how much I love the 1X (pronounced “One-By”) system.  That being said, the idea of ditching your front derailleur is brilliant for just about everyone.  No really, unless you’re a hardcore bike racer, it’s a darn near perfect system and it has an amazing amount of upside to it.  The 1X arrangement has been a mainstay in the mountain bike world for several years now and has revolutionized mountain bike drive systems.  It’s a very hot topic right now in the cycling world, and more cyclists, triathletes, and occasional riders are making the switch.  Should you make the switch?  Read on and lets discuss the idea from a practical, mathematical, and cost standpoint.

Our long time customer, triathlete, spin instructor and good friend Carrie Giordano suggested the idea and happily agreed to head up the spinning each week. This is not an instructional or spin class as usual but a great time to come and spin with friends and others from the cycling community. Spin at your own pace and whatever fits your current training schedule while watching the big screen.
