That’s right, it is officially, unequivocally and almost certainly winter. Pay no heed to these so-called “calenders” that say the first day of winter is December 21st, IT’S DARK. IT’S WET. IT’S COLD. For some, that means it’s time to fold up the jersey, hang up the helmet and pack up the bike until the sun starts to keep it’s head above the skyline past 4 pm again.
But it doesn’t have to be.
We’ve got a wide variety of cycling trainers to suit all needs and skill levels that will let you ride in the comfort and warmth of your own home. Stick around after the jump for a handful of helpful visuals with a special guest appearance from everyone’s favorite mannequin, Manny. Read More »

If you’ve ever looked longingly at a hot new bike and known that while you can totally afford it, taking it home would mean running up your credit card balance or emptying out your checking account, we have a solution for you.
The S-Card – easy and affordable financing from Specialized and GE Money, now available at Bicycle Therapy – is a great way to take home the bike you want, when you want.
It’s a quick application process, you can even do it online, and once you’re approved you can buy anything in the shop with a simple six month same-as-cash deal. Make the minimum monthly payments, pay off the balance on time, and you just got your new bike without paying interest, maxing out your Visa card, or having to go on a ramen-noodle-only diet.

Every once in a while, a new bike comes out that has just the right blend of weight, performance, ride quality, parts spec, and of course, price. The 2013 Jamis Ventura Comp and women’s specific Ventura Comp Femme are just such bikes.
The Jamis Ventura has always been a winner. Literally. It’s a perennial finalist and multiple-time winner of Bicycling Magazine coveted Editor’s Choice awards. Whether it’s the top-end Ventura Race, the high-value Ventura Sport, or the over-achieving Ventura Comp, the whole family offers great rides at even better price points.
The all-new 2013 Ventura Comp and Comp Femme continue the tradition by combining their light, efficient, and comfortable Kinesis 7005 double-butted aluminum frames – featuring size specific tube diameters and a tapered steerer tubes – with smooth riding, ultra-light full carbon forks, the awesome new Shimano Sora shifters/derailleurs, and venerable Mavic CXP-22 wheelsets, all for $950.
Seriously. You’re getting full carbon, hollow-crown, 1 1/8″ – 1 1/2″ tapered steerer forks on bikes that retail for less than a grand. There are some $1500 Shimano 105 bikes that can’t claim that. Hell, there are some $3000 carbon bikes with Ultegra Di2 that can’t give you a fork that’s as smooth, stiff, and light as the ones you get on the 2013 Jamis Ventura Comp and Comp Femme.
Long story short, these bikes ride amazingly well – they’re balanced, quick, smooth, fun – and they’re worth every penny. Great first road bikes? Definitely. Perfect Gran Fondo, all-day bikes? Of course. Light-touring workhorses? Winter-training machines? Gravel road adventurers? Super-commuters? Yes, yes, yes, and yes. These bikes can do it all, do it well, and do it with style. Come by the shop soon and check out what just might be the best riding, best looking bikes you can get for $950.

If you ride a lot, one of the first things you realize is that there is no such thing as the perfect bike; no such thing as the one bike that does everything. I mean, you at least need a single speed rigid 29er, a pump track bike, a fully mtb, an endurance carbon road bike, an aluminum crit bike, and a dedicated steel commuter bike, right?
At the same time, we cyclists are always searching for that perfect bike that will handle everything with aplomb and finally allow us to make some room in the stable. The 2013 Camber Comp might just be the bike to handle such a tall order. Don’t take our word for it. Check out the glowing review over at BikeRadar.
We’ve got the Camber in stock at the shop and we’ve even got it available for demo rides. For just $75, you can ride the Camber Comp for up to 48 hrs. If you buy one, that $75 goes towards the price, and if you decide it’s not quite perfect, we’ll give you your $75 back on a shop gift card. Come check it what may finally be the perfect bike.

Lazer helmets have long been regarded as some the best in the world. They’re light, comfy, stylish, safe, affordable, and most importantly, they’re now available at Bicycle Therapy. Lazer makes a lot of really great helmets, but we’ve picked two models in a few great colors to have at the shop.
The Lazer Oxygen (aka O2) is a high performance, high value roadie that features an outstanding fit, low profile shape, great ventilation, and low weight, all for $110.
The Armor is a perfect choice for the everyday rider that wants a safe, super light, well ventilated helmet with subtle styling that looks more at home on the streets than in the Tour de France.
