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!
