While we weren’t paying attention the holidays snuck up on us. We’re always excited to provide quality gear to our customers, but it gets a little bit tricky when you’re trying to buy radical stuff for the riders on your list. Never fear, we’re here to help. We’ll be open 11 – 7 until the night of Dec 24th. Here are a couple gift ideas that we really like.
Knog Beetle Light Sets ($32.50) Keep it safe out there! The Beetle set includes front and rear lights that attach to almost any part of the bicycle with no tools involved. These stylish sets come in black and white, and individual lights come in a multitude of colors for $17.99.
Innertubes ($5.00) This is a must! An extra tube is always appreciated in times of need. Pair a few with the Pedro’s Tire Lever set to make things easy for your grease monkey.
Socks ($9.99) Really? Really. There’s a difference between crusty 20 packs of ill fitting tube socks from Big Lots and the super sweet wool and Cool Max socks that we stock.
Multi Tools (9.99 +) Check out the Crank Brothers Multi-10 and Multi – 17! Great to stow in your pocket or bag for those quick fixes. These tools are lifetime guaranteed and are made from Stainless Steel.

Simple Straps (6.99) – These are pretty cool. A very versatile velcro strap that can hold tubes, tools, or whatever else to your frame, seat, or seatpost. These straps, hand made in Charlottesville are popping up on pro bikes throughout the country.

All gift certificate records are kept on file at the shop and do not need to be present to redeem merchandise. You can purchase your gift certificates over the phone by calling 804-248-5878.
We hope everybody’s summer is going well! Stay safe out there. Here’s a few good tips.
1. If it takes you more than 10 seconds or two tries to get on your bicycle, you’re too drunk. Walk home. It’ll be more fun anyway.
2. Before you ride, make sure your tires are properly inflated. Give your bike a bounce to see if there are any loose parts. Check it over for any wear. Contrary to popular belief, bicycles are not immutable objects. They get old and sick just like everything else.
3. Always use your lights at night! Local statutes call for a front blinking white light and a rear blinking red light. Not only will you be seen, but it’ll save you $100 by avoiding tickets from RPD and VCU police.
4. Ride as if you’re invisible to cars. Be prepared for motorists’ inattention. Cell phone use and text messaging in cars create a 2300% increase in the likelyhood of an accident.
Good Luck! We’ll be closed Best Friends Day, Saturday August 22nd, see you at Hadad’s.
Hope everyone is having a good summer! Lots of new stuff in. Velocity B43’s came in this week. As the sage lyricist Ice Cube once put it they “…roll so deep they’ll put your butt to sleep”.
