Specialized is turning 40 this year and of course the celebration is in full swing. It’s been a real pleasure for us here at Bicycle Therapy to be partnered with Specialized and, from the both of us, we want to give a little something back to you guys for making 40 years possible for them. 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.
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 has made no secret of their designs on the cyclocross world. They’ve tinkered with their CX bikes, and they really threw down the gauntlet with the Crux. Specialized continues to stock their quiver for the 2011/2012 CX season with a full line-up of high-performance cyclocross tubular tires. We have all three Specialized CX tubulars in stock, so check out the info below and then come in to get what you need. Read More »
