For those unfamiliar with our professional model/16-times running employee of the month/resident adonis Manny, do yourself a favor and take a nice leisurely stroll down sunny South Street past our shop window and take a quick gaze at his majesty. This spring you’ll find Manny bedecked in some of the exciting selections from Specialized’s new line of spring apparel, freshly arrived in store.
After one of the coldest winters on record in our great city of brotherly love, Manny, eager to saddle up and resume his commute to an arduous day of standing in our window (i.e. “work”) by bicycle, was super excited to get into Specialized’s new-for-this-year Utility line of apparel. In spite of all the truly fantastic road and mountain kits we got it, the language in Manny’s contract stipulates that he gets to pick what he wears, so here we are with some awesome stuff to keep you looking and feeling cool (literally and figuratively) whether it’s your commute or your ride. Stick around after the jump for a bombardment of photos and specifics about this exciting new line.

Posted: September 3rd, 2014 | Filed under: Featured, Rides, Uncategorized | Comments Off on The Bagel Ride: New and Improved
The ever-popular Bagel Ride is getting a nice little tune-up for the fall. Following the route pictured above, we’ll be leaving from the front door of the shop riding out to the lovely little borough of Bridgeport, PA and then loop around back to Philadelphia proper.
It’s a nice 40 mile jaunt, about 3 hours in total with a small stop out in Bridgeport for Bagels/Donuts/Coffee/What-have-you at a nice B ride pace. That’s about a 15-16 mph average with no drops, inclusive to cyclists of all skill levels who want a fun Saturday morning ride. If that sounds like you, then we hope to see you Saturday mornings at 8:30 in front of the shop! We’ll keep going as long as the weather holds up and please feel free to e-mail us, call the shop or just stop by if you have any questions!

As a token of our appreciation, we’re offering 40% off all in-store Capo apparel excluding Bicycle Therapy team kits. It’s serious clothing for a seriously low price. As always, please feel to call or stop by the shop for details!

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.

Last week we left off with a few tips on how to stay warm on the bike as the weather gets colder. Today we’re going to expand on that idea with some helpful visual aid provided by Bicycle Therapy’s own 68-time consecutive Employee of the Month, Jacques-Maria Manuel de Factice Maniquí-Manuel.
Or Manny for short.
Manny has a reputation for being the strong, silent type and doesn’t often begrudge himself complaints regarding the weather, but don’t let that stoic demeanor of his fool you. He cherishes on-the-bike warmth. Stick with us (and Manny) after the jump for a handy guide on how best to combat the approaching winter. Read More »

Don’t let the gorgeous weather and comfortable temperatures fool you. It’s officially Fall and if our watches are correct, the sun is setting earlier and earlier.
This is all to say that starting Tuesday, October 1st, we’ll be falling back (sorry) to our Fall/Winter schedule. We’ll still be open later on Wednesdays, but as of this week and until the Spring, Bicycle Therapy’s hours of operations are as follows:

The road group arms race just got kicked up another notch, or another gear if you will. On the heels of the introduction of Shimano’s new 11-speed Dura-Ace mechanical and electronic groups, SRAM just announced two all-new 11-speed road groups and a slew of options for fully integrated hydraulic disc and rim brake set-ups. Pics, pricing, and weights after the jump!
