The Good, The Bad And The Flat

Posted: December 23rd, 2013 | Filed under: Featured, Service, Tires, Uncategorized | Comments Off on The Good, The Bad And The Flat


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.



2012 SRAM Red Ride with RED-2012, Zipp, and Quarq: it’s more than an demo, it’s an experience.

Posted: June 20th, 2012 | Filed under: Components, Products, Rides, Road Bikes, Wheels | Tags: , , , , , , , | Comments Off on 2012 SRAM Red Ride with RED-2012, Zipp, and Quarq: it’s more than an demo, it’s an experience.

If you’re into cycling and cool new stuff – presumably you are if you’re reading this – you’re invited to join us so you can ride SRAM RED-2012 with Quarq and Zipp Firecrest wheels. You might have  heard it called a demo, but we call it a Ride Experience.

For SRAM, it’s a little about the bike, but more about the parts. Experience a confident front shift, more comfortable ergonomics, and AeroLink Brakes that give you speed control with RED-2012.

The event is next Monday, June 25th on Main Street in Manayunk, from 2:00 – 7:00PM. All you need to do to sign up is take a quick, painless survey and then just show up with your riding gear, shoes, and pedals. Product check-out is first come – first serve, so get there early and enjoy.

$5 Flat Fix Punch Card is Back!

Posted: February 26th, 2012 | Filed under: Featured, On Sale, Sale, Tires | Tags: , , , , , | Comments Off on $5 Flat Fix Punch Card is Back!

It’s back! If you didn’t get a $5 Flat Fix Punch Card a few months ago, now is your chance. The cards will be on available through the end of March, so get yours now.

How does the punch card work? It’s simple. Buy the card for $25, get your card punched every time you get a flat fixed, and you save a bunch of money.

How much money? A flat fix costs $12 (i.e. $7 for the tube, $5 for labor), but the labor rate going up $1 on April 1st. So, if you use the punch card rather than paying for each flat individually, you automatically save up to $40.

Just so you know know, our flat fix rate is going up for a very, very good reason. Bicycle Therapy is now recycling every inner tube and tire we replace, so nothing ends up in a landfill. The extra dollar covers the costs associated with the proper, responsible disposal of your old tubes and tires.

Riding bikes, acting responsibly, and saving money. What’s not to like?

Specialized Romin: The Evolution of Body Geometry Saddles

Posted: December 9th, 2011 | Filed under: Components, Products, Specialized | Tags: , , , , , | Comments Off on Specialized Romin: The Evolution of Body Geometry Saddles

BikeRumor just published a really fantastic post in which they interview Dr. Roger Minkow (the inventor of the original Body Geometry saddles back in 1999) about the evolution of the Specialized Romin BG saddle. The Romin, in many ways, is the culmination of everything Dr. Minkow and Specialized have learned about building saddles that improve the rider’s experience.

Men’s Journal just recognized the 2012 Romin Evo in their annual “Gear of the Year” list, recently gave the Romin Pro a perfect 5 out of 5 star score, and all this just confirms what we’ve known since the original Romin debuted a few years ago: it’s revolutionary saddle that delivers unprecedented performance and comfort while maintaining blood flow and eliminating pressure better than any saddle before. We’ve got the Romin in stock in multiple versions and widths, so if you want to try the best BG saddle yet, stop by the shop for a test ride.
