Follow along after the jump for more info.
As anyone who has gotten a flat fixed here at the shop before knows, we pride ourselves on the efficiency, speed and of course quality we provide with out flat tire repair service. In order to continue providing that level of service, we have to raise the price of flat tire repair from $13 to $15, effective January 1st. Not a significant of a jump, just wanted to give a heads up before the change went through.
To offset some of the increasing cost, for a limited time we’re bring back the ever popular Flat Fix Punch Card. $50 dollars buys you 5 flats, (that’s $10 dollars per flat for the less number-inclined among us) and the card is available now through January 15th so stop by and get yours today. Limit 1 per customer.

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 »

Straight from Capo Custom Apparel, the newest edition of the team kit features Capo’s Super Corsa Jersey which is form-fitting yet totally comfy, the Corsa bib short with the fantastic fit and chamois that we all know and love, and both are emblazoned with lighter colors that really pop, more white to keep you cool, and logos of the newest team sponsors.

The kits are in stock now, but like any of the kits we’ve brought in over the years, they may not be for long. The first batch is always the hottest, so get yours while you can.
None of us can ever hope to even get close to Mario Cipollini’s level of style – I mean, Cipo is a giant among men when it comes to looking good on and off the bike – but at least we can look better than every other rider on the road.
To that end, we’re putting all our Spring/Summer cycling clothing from 2012 on sale. Like, really on sale. 50% off on sale. That’s half off, if math isn’t your thing.
