#TRACKNIGHT // Photos!

Processed with VSCOcam with b5 preset Processed with VSCOcam with b5 presetIt’s no secret that we love our Velodrome. We sell track bikes, race track bikes and just all around dig the culture that exists up in Blaine, MN. It was with a heavy heart that we learned last year our Velodrome was in rough shape and may  have already seen it’s last race.

So you can imagine our joy when we walked onto that lovely grass infield this past Thursday evening. Our Velodrome is back and better than ever, thanks to the efforts of a few local folks who raised the funds to keep it going. We always invite our customers up to see a Thursday Night Lights, but now we must insist – it’s too special a thing to miss.

We hope to see you up there this season.


Shop Kit Reorder // New!

Processed with VSCOcam with 1 presetIt’s the time of the year to break out the short sleeves and pack away the jackets. We’re working with Podiumwear once again to open up a pre-order for our very own Shop Kit. They make one heck of a product, and we’re stoked to offer it to our good friends and clients.

If you’re interested, the preorder is now open. We’ll also have a small selection at the shop, but if you absolutely need X/Y/Z, probably the pre-order is the way to go.

PREORDER URL : https://www.podiumwear.com/team-storefront/shop-kit-2015/

PREORDER PASSWORD : omnium2015

Pre-order closes May 5th at Midnight!


Fifth Birthday BBQ Blowout // Event!

It’s kind of a big deal.

Five years, Saint Paul. Five years of wrench-turning, high-fives and late nights. A lot of new friends have been made and a lot of new bikes have been built. Innumerable flats have been fixed. We pretty much still tolerate one another.

We’re glad we made it, and even more glad you’re with us. So as we are known to do – we will throw a party.

10 AM till 8 PM

Bikes n’ Brews! // Event!

om_beers_745

What goes better with bikes, than beer? Maybe friends, and definitely the riding of bikes – so let’s mash them all together in one wonderful weekly event. Friday nights we’re leading a ride to one of our many amazing local breweries. Meet here at 7:30 PM, have your bike ready and wit about you. We’ll try and have the ride finished by 10 PM (but feel free to go as late into the night as you’d like).

Sounds pretty rad, right?

We thought so.

See you this Friday night!

Norco Tactic // Photos!

Processed with VSCOcam with 6 preset Processed with VSCOcam with 6 preset Processed with VSCOcam with 6 presetIt was last August somewhere in Iowa when I got the email from Norco. I wasn’t sure what it held, but when I opened the file and saw the renderings of the newly announced 2015 lineup, I immediately focused in on the Tactic SL. Bright, fast and aggressive – I knew this was going to be one heck of a rocket ship.

Fast forward to this past week and finally seeing the Tactic SL built up for a good friend of the shop. We knew we had to share it with ya’ll.

We’re ridiculously excited to see Denise destroy the competition this year with her new steed, but until then we’re happy enough to stare at these photos.

30 Days // Event!

IMG_6091Bikes are just awesome.

There. I said it.

It’s April 1st, which means it’s time to celebrate just how awesome bicycles are with #30DaysOfBiking. All month we’ll be sponsoring the movement, supporting local cyclists and putting on a variety of events and rides.

First up – Our weekly Bikes & Beers. Meet us at 7:30 this Friday (if you’re a responsible, of-age individual), and we’ll head out to a local brewery on our bicycles and enjoy a variety of brews and conversations. This week, we’re headed to Wabasha Brewing Co. and their lovely taproom. Hope to see you there!

And stay tuned for new developments and deals as the month progresses.

Norco Road 2015 // New!

IMG_5670IMG_5675 IMG_5672Another fantastic weekend for tires of a smaller diameter. It’s time to dust off the gas pedal, and step on it. 

You may remember Norco from Bigfoot and Bigfoot : The Bigfootening – but they do more than just mythical woodland creatures. They produce a heck of a road line as well, with options for any and all who prefer the small hum of the pavement over the rocky alcoves and drop-offs of the off road world.

Broken down between the three you have –

The Tactic : Aggressive. Fast. Nimble. Leave them in your dust, come back around and do it all again. We stock the Tactic Rival for the pragmatic racer in us all.

The Valence : Go far and look good doing it. Who says good carbon has to break the bank? We stock the Valence Tiagra for those who yearn to go the distance.

The Search : Where we’re going, we don’t need roads. Or really anything. Ask us if the Search is right for you.

So come on in and try out some of the new faces of Norco 2015. You’ll be glad you did, and we’ll be happy to have the company.


Sundays, Sundays, SUNDAY!

With the return of warmer weather, we are officially out of semi hibernation. The roadies have shaved their legs and we are open Sundays from noon to six again.
