Here is a super informative video about the ABUS LOCK company, all about their history, production and testing.

ABUS, KRYPONITE and BIKE GUARD are our go to reputable lock brands at both of our Vancouver stores, with ABUS being most people’s top choice!

IMG_2591 On a side note, we couldn’t help but notice brand new bikes racks popping up all over the city as of late.

Big thanks to the city of Vancouver for getting these much needed additional racks installed.

Now just make sure you have a good quality lock!

2015 Brodies?

14 Jul

That’s right, as the Worlds Largest BRODIE Dealer, we’ve already sold out of many of the 2014 models, so time to grab as many of the incoming 2015 models as possible!

2 models so far, the BOLT and the DYNAMO.

2014BrodieBoltThe BOLT is the entry level model from BRODIE’s “Express” series. This was meant to be the RIDE ON exclusive collaboration bike as we wanted something a little stealthier than the 2014 Purple color option. 4130 Chromoly frame and fork, full Shimano drive train, larger volume tires. Solid Hybrid option, ONLY $549

2015DynamoThe DYNAMO is a carry over model previous years with some fresh decals! What else is new? Well if you are just over 5 feet and after a great quality hydraulic disc brake hybrid, the 2015 DYNAMO is now available in the XXS 45cm option. 6061 butted tubing, full Shimano drive train, super solid hybrid for ONLY $849

We recently gave away a 2014 BRODIE BOLT to Daniel (pictured with Don the owner) the lucky GRAND PRIZE winner of the BIKE TO WORK WEEK event held in VANCOUVER during JUNE.

All things FONDO

14 Jul

What Is a Gran Fondo?

Gran Fondo’s are mass participation cycling events that have enjoyed incredible popularity in Europe for decades and are beginning to gain momentum in North America.

Gran Fondo means many things to many people. Loosely translated, it means everything from “great foundation”, “great distance” or “great endurance.” It can be a full-on race, or just a ride. It’s both a sporting event and a cultural experience. And it’s truly Italian. There’s nothing like it anywhere else in the world.

Gran Fondo’s were invented in Italy in the early 1900’s and have been part of Italian cycling culture and tradition for over 100 years.

They are also a great way to raise money for charities and organisations. Most of the BC races are fully supported with some races offering a variety of routes to suit all levels of rider.

“Endurance” or “Fondo” style Road Bikes offer a much more comfortable, less aggressive riding position and make up the majority of our road bike sales, year in, year out.

With slightly slacker angles, longer chainstays and taller headtube heights these fit a lot more suited to longer, more relaxed rides right out of the box!

It is possible to make any road bike, even aggressive sprint style bikes into something more comfortable, with the right sizing and adjustments.

Here is a run down of our best selling Fondo/Endurance style bikes:
