Whether you enjoy riding hard pack trails, mixing up your commute, or just want the lightest MTB tire, we have just the thing for you. As a matter of fact, we have enough “fast” mountain bike tires that we are putting them on sale. Swing in soon and check out the discounts on some very sought after tires.
Meet Bobby, the youngest member of our crew and the shop’s official tire inspector.
With the winter coming to an end and salty roads soon to be a thing of the past, Bobby wants to advise everyone to check their tires. Worn tires can contribute to more flats, poor handling and the rare blow out. Wet weather, low air pressure, and lots of riding break down the integrity of the tire’s rubber. Cracks on the sidewall as well as a worn, pitted, or squared treads are all evidence that the tire’s life is nearing the end.
Bobby has included a few illustrations below.
Happy riding, and be safe!
March is your last chance to beat the rush, and we want to help motivate you to get your bicycle in early.
