Kleen Kanteen has been around for a while now making their wonderful stainless steel water bottles and we've been carrying them for several years. Durable in construction, lightweight and free of toxins, its hard to argue that there's a better bottle out there. We've typically stocked the Kleen Kanteen in it's original brushed stainless finish but this week we received a handful of bottles in a variety of vibrant colors. For the next week at Broadway Bicycle School all Kleen Kanteen products will be 15% off. Sale ends 3/29/10.

This week we are featuring Pedros chain lube. All of the Pedros chain lubes that we stock will be 20% off through March 22. These lubricants are fairly new to BBS and we are all very excited about this line in particular because they are all biodegradable! No kidding, they're better for the earth and easier on your hands.
Along with airing your tires, lubricating your chain is the most important bit of regular maintenance you can do on your bike. Chain lube will make your ride much smoother and more enjoyable while helping to slow down chain and drivetrain wear. During the winter/spring months lubrication becomes more vital because of the snow and rain that will rinse away any oil on your chain. Stop by to pick up a bottle and to pick up a tip or two about proper application.

Bike there with google maps!

Very cool news from Google maps yesterday - you can now get biking directions! The map generated when you select biking directions shows bike trails (marked with dark green), streets that have bike lanes (light green) and streets that are recommended for biking (dotted green). According to Google the route you will get is "optimized for cycling, taking advantage of bike trails, bike lanes, and bike-friendly streets and avoiding hilly terrain whenever possible".

Check it out - here is the bike route from our shop to the Diesel Cafe in Davis.

Hi Folks! This week all lights at BBS will be 20% off. That's right, ALL lights: front, rear, helmet mounted, rack mounted, battery operated, rechargeable, etc. Lights are a very necessary safety feature of your biking experience (and front lights are required by law!). For those of you who don't currently own lights and have found yourself riding more and more after the sun goes down, now is the time to get yourself set up with a pair. Also worth stopping by to see is Planet Bike's relatively new Blaze series. These front lights come in 1/2 watt, 1 watt, and 2 watt versions. Not only do they make you more visible to drivers but they also offer a much more powerful beam that gives you greater visibility when riding in poorly lit areas. Sale through March 15th.

Hey folks! We have a new part of the week! All full coverage fenders here at Broadway Bicycle School will be 25% off for the week of March 1-7. For all you roadies out there that will include race blades as well. Fenders are a great way to keep you clean and relatively dry when riding in wet conditions. They also protect your bike from all manner of unmentionable crud that your tires pick up off the street. That means less rust, less corrosion and most importantly fewer repairs overall! Awesome! Whether you're replacing an old worn out pair or trying fenders for the first time come on down and grab a pair while supplies last.
