The Door 3 Gallery, in honor of the last show of the season, displays these deposit envelopes now.

Bianchi mountain bike

We recently got in this sweet, pre-owned, Bianchi DISS. The DISS is a disc brake, single speed mountain bike with a rigid fork but it also comes with a Marzocchi Dirt Jumper suspension fork in case you want to switch out the rigid and do some serious MTBing! This bike would also make a great commuting bike by just putting on some slick tires.

Pancake Breakfast....

Last week's pancake breakfast had the biggest we have had in a long time - attendance wise that is.  We have made bigger pancakes!   We had three cooks cooking up chocolate chip, blueberry and mixed berry pancakes and there was still a line to get pancakes.  Next year, we might need 4 cooks!  

This gentleman showed up about an hour after the pancake breakfast ended asking if he was too late for pancakes which made everyone laugh so I took a pancake from the trash and he ate it.  Just kidding! We had a huge plate of leftovers that he got to share in.

More than one way to transport a tandem...

What do you do when you need to get a tandem from Cambridge to JP?  Well you can ride it or you can just do what one of the mechanics here did the other day - strap the front wheel of that tandem to the back of your Surly Big Dummy and tow it.  It certainly didn't seem like a good idea at first but it worked like a charm!

Thats over 10 feet of bikes there!

Rainy days shouldn't be a downer....

Rainy days are no fun - especially for bikers.  So, this season, if you get out on your bike and come to the shop when it is raining we'll show you our appreciation by giving you 10% off parts and accessories.  Just mention that you saw this post on the blog before we ring you up.

New to you....

In addition to our selection of shiny new parts, lots of people come to Broadway to browse our wide selection of, not so shiny but nonetheless cool, used parts. Just a few gems that we found this week -
Handbuilt wheel with Campy hub and Mavic open pro rim 

700c generator front wheel and on the right a 700c 3 speed wheel 

Campy Athena crank 

 Suntour lockring 

You can find some great deals in the used parts area just keep in mind it's all "self-help" (there is lots of stuff and if we sifted around bins looking for exactly what you needed we couldn't sell it so cheaply!)  Also, we don't install used parts, so the used area is best for people who do a lot of their own work on their bike. Come check it out!

Field trip to Circle-A

New England is home to quite a few custom frame builders and this week a few of us from the shop visited Providence's Circle-A Cycles to check out the shop but more importantly to get fitted for new bikes!
I have never thought of getting a custom frame but, being on the tall side, I have had a really hard time finding a bike that fits me well. So I figured in order to get a bike that actually works for me, I need to get a custom build. At least that is what I keep telling myself. After a tour of their shop, Brian, pictured below, got me sized up for my new frame and starting plugging in numbers to get me a perfect fit for what I plan on doing with my bike (wheelies mostly). Check them out, the guys down there (Brian and Chris) are very cool and make some of the neatest looking bikes around.

Moving day

I was on Chic Cyclist's blog the other day and saw this pic of one of the mechanics who works here at Broadway. He built a shelving unit for the shop at his house and was transporting it over to Broadway on our bike trailer. Looks like hard work - he should have just used the shop Hummer!

New Klean Kanteen bottles are now in stock with a new and improved drinking top. $18 for the 27oz and $16.50 for the 18oz.
