DEL SOL Hybrids! *RIDE ON CANADIAN EXCLUSIVE*

10 May

Del Sol? Based out of San Diego and more well known for their cruiser bike offerings, Del Sol is branching out into the hybrid market.

DEL SOL
are owned by the same parent company behind MASI and HARO so they are a welcome addition to our list of brands!

Just 2 models feature this year, the CAMPUS 101 (Step Through versions available also) at $499 and the CAMPUS 202 at $549. Great Quality entry level Hybrids with a look, feel and price that is hard to match!

We managed to get the Canadian Exclusive on these, rumour is that they are expanding the line even further for next year! So if you want a hybrid that not everyone else is, get one of these before they are gone, numbers are limited and moving fast!

These are the 2 specimens that managed to get away with a couple of bikes early this morning from our Marpole store.

The 2 bikes, if you do see for sale are both BMX’s, nicer Norco models:

– A REV 21″ Top Tube, raw frame, fork, bars with Copper rims, Odyssey Aitken tires.

– A REV 20.5 Top Tube, Dark Grey Frame, Fork, Bars with Green rims and Odyssey Aitke Tires.

Obviously if you can name names, contact us or the police as we would love to see them face some level of punishment.

Share around as I’m pretty sure we are not the only bike shop that have been, or will be interested in visiting.

Thanks!
