4th Birthday BBQ Blowout // Event!

om_birthdaybbq_4_745We’re turning 4. You may know 4 from such movies as ‘After 3’ and ‘Before 5’. In light of this momentous occasion, we’re going to throw a BBQ. For those of you who just fell off the turnip truck, we do this sort of thing a lot (see previous post).

The Details //

April 26th

10 AM till 8 PM

Here at the Shop. Also in the mysterious Parking Lot.

Ride Bikes. Talk Bikes. Hang out around Bikes.

Special Flat Fix demonstration by this guy.*

Come hang out with us at the Shop and enjoy free food, free drinks and free high fives.

Food from our Grill. Drinks from soda cans and Lucid Brewing. High Fives from our expert staff.

Sounds like an alright Saturday to me.

See you there.

Your Bike Dudes,

Omnium Bike Shop

*Probably erring on the side of definitely not going to happen

Omnium Turns 3 // RESCHEDULED TO APRIL 27th



Due to horrific weather/snow/crap we’re moving this back 1 week till next Saturday, April 27th. Everything else about that flyer above is true, just not the date. So mentally make that 0 into a 7 and all will be okay.

It’s all going to be okay.

Happy to see we’re still around, even happier to see you all stuck with us. Time for a burger, beer or just a high-five.

Come join us April 27th and let us thank you for making these first years great. See you there.

– Your Friendly, Neighborhood Bike Shop

P.S. – Did you know we’re open Summer Hours now? Monday through Saturday 10 AM to 8 PM – Sunday 12 Noon to 6 PM. Because we totally are.

SONDERKROSSEN – September 14th

Friday, September 14th at 5 PM we’re going to have a little get together. It’s that time of year when our two great loves meet; Track is done but Cross has just yet begun. For one shining month we’ll have both and we’re going to celebrate in style.

Beer? We’ll have that. Food? That too. How about some rocking deals on Track and Cross gear? You betcha. (Including this guy).

We’ll also have our full line of Blue CX bikes out for display (not to mention special deals on those guys as well).

So come on in and celebrate the death of one season and the beginning of another.

The Track is dead!

Long live the Cyclocross!


Backyard BBQ – April 21st


EDIT: The BBQ has been pushed back due to weather concerns! It will now be happening next Saturday, April 21st! See ya’ll then! 

Yup. It’s happening. And it’s super soon. Apologies to those who have yet to purchase their bibs and those little wet napkin things you get at Famous Dave’s.

Here’s the rundown:

April 14th, 10 AM to 8 PM behind the shop in our ‘backyard’ (aka, Parking Lot)

We’re gonna have meat. We’re gonna have buns. We’re gonna have nonmeat. We’re gonna have Kool Aid.

For those of you of age, we’re gonna have beer. (It’s all free, by the way)

Bikes for you to try out. Lots of bikes for you to try out.

Tents (now with logos)

Who wants to learn how to Fix-A-Flat? 3 PM all that free knowledge is going to happen.

We’re brining sexy back. And by sexy I mean a really cool bike brand not seen in these parts for awhile.

Ultegra Di2 courtesy of Blue Cycles. You can ride it. Or just look at it in awe.

If you’re feeling up for it, St. Paul Pub Crawl! 8 PM (after all the other festivities)

That’s about all we’ve got. We’re making more dreams come true than an episode of ‘Extreme Home Makeover’. So come on down and say hi.

P.S. – Rumor has it one of the Banjo Brothers might even show up. But please, no flash photography. They scare easy.
