    Tiny Bikeshop Concert Rocked

    There were a lot of smiles shared, a lot of food was eaten and several gallons of Pink Lemonade (with a hint of raspberry) was drank and Brianna Lane rocked the shop. Many Thanks to all who came. [set_id=72157626409230242]

    Icey Gears

    The harshness of winter riding is undeniable for any Minnesotan (or the bike of a Minnesotan). We've had a lot of snow this winter and with the snow comes a lot of ice in the gears. Frequently I find that the chain won't engage a gear I shift into because there is too much ice on it. The technique for dealing with this is to pedal rather gently to shave off the ice. If you hammer down on the pedals you'll likely just skip over the gear and never get the ice off the gear.

    One way to deal with this is to skip the multiple gears and go with a single speed set up. Local customer (nationally known musician) Ann Reed went the single speed route this fall.

    New & Improved for 2009

    Spring is Here Spring is here! (Well, it's closer...)
    It was a big winter at the shop. It's been a fun off-season and we've added some great new products that we're all excited about. And we've snapped up the shop a bit, too. Good stuff all around and we're ready for spring! THE SPACE: Check out our fresh, shiny floors. Hardwood floors are awesome, but they do require some elbow grease now and again. We refinished the floors and gave them a new glossy coat this January. We also added some new lights to brighten up the long winter nights. Don't worry, it's still a nice warm light in the shop, just a few more watts to admire the details on the new Arkel bags. collage-2-copy_23RANS Hammertruck CARGO BIKES: We are adding three models of cargo bikes for '09: the Surly Big Dummy, the RANS Hammertruck and the Larry vs. Harry Bullitt. These three models are phenomenal products and will go a long way for the serious commuter. Civia HylandCivia Loring COMMUTERS: Expanding on our success with folding bikes, we are adding more commuting minded bikes this year. Specifically designed to be comfortable, yet speedy these bicycles that will handle Minneapolis weather and daily use. Civia Cycles are an American, high-tech take on an old-world, Amsterdam-style commuting bike. The Hyland and the Loring are both beautiful bicycles, and now available at Perennial Cycle. Civia accessories and parts are also available. They make awesome racks and fenders.
    Nutcase Helmets are trés fun.
    HELMETS: Nutcase helmets are urban helmets with hip, colorful designs. No reason you have to look like a roadie, if you're not!
