Interesting article over on the CBC showing that the number of riders in Vancouver went up by 20% last year over 2013, we know that we’re busier than ever too and long may the trend continue!

Read the full article HERE!

Talking of bikes on roads, check out this miraculous escape from what could have turned out to be a complete disaster in Moscow. Hopefully your commute is less eventful…

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!

USED BICYCLES VANCOUVER site is back in action

19 Jan

Our USED BIKES website is back up and running again with regular updates with some of the nicer used bikes that we have on offer.

ALL of our USED BIKES are sold as FULLY TUNED! Our bikes come to us on a donation basis, we supply the necessary parts (new and used) and the know how and skilled labor to get these bikes ready for the road once more and out of the landfills.

That way you can buy a USED BIKE with confidence from us, knowing that it was FULLY TUNED, bought from an actual BIKE SHOP with a full range of lights, locks, helmets, racks, fenders etc. You can get some expert advice, check out between 20-30 USED BIKES all at once in the comfort of our yard.

When it comes to paying you can use cash/debit/credit and our prices are normally as good, if not better than those you’ll see on Craigslist for similar quality bikes!

The website is www.usedbicyclesvancouver.com and you can follow the USED BIKES on instagram @usedbicyclesvancouver.

While you are on instagram you may as well follow us @rideonagain and @rideonbikeshop too!

You’ll see disc brakes, much larger tire clearance on the frame and forks, allowing you to run a much larger tire size depending on your application, also normally eyelets and braze ons so you can also run full coverage fenders and racks, lots of the time compact gearing cranksets and wider range cassettes, making them true all rounders!
