It’s that time of year. Yep, the time when those of you so inclined get out there on the knobbies and get a bit dirty! Could be the hard core trail riders of you, or could be the tris/roadies of you who enjoy mixing it up for training or fun in the winter season. Either way, it’s all good!
Excited to once again be participating in the Annual Bike Alpharetta Bikes for Kids. We are a drop point and welcome all of your gently used to new kids bicycle and tricycle donations.

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!

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.”
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.
Join us for our 3 part, on-trail instructional series of mountain bike group rides for men and women geared to introduce riders to local trails, learn & improve technical skills in a non-intimidating environment, gain riding buddies, and enjoy some good food together! Definitely a good series for beginners but also for intermediate and other riders to brush up and increase skill and knowledge. This series will be lead by our longtime customer and friend Megan Diebold.
