Home Maintenance

The bicycle is a beautiful thing. It’s simple, efficient and the funnest thing to ride. That’s probably the reason we sell so many of them. A common question from customers purchasing a new bike is in regards to maintenance. The bicycles we sell are high quality and if properly maintained can last for many years of riding, if not for…

Wet Weather Maintenance

It’s not often that we have to worry too much about water here in the desert, but this month’s rains have been almost biblical.
