The Bikerowave will be closed this Thursday, Friday, and Saturday for Thanksgiving and turkey/Tofurky eating and resulting food comas.
See you on Sunday for our regular shop hours. Don’t forget to bring us some tasty leftovers!
Due to the influx of Thanksgiving and various other factors Bikerowave is proud to offer one class for the month of November! It’s an oldie but a goodie; bike fitting. Don’t be put off by its boring name, bike fitting is perhaps the most essential part of bike tuning next to having your brakes work. Have you ever found yourself wondering why your knees hurt like an airplane destroying gremlin has been gnawing on them. Have your hands ever felt like you have been handling a hammer-drill? Sounds like you need to attend our bike fitting class. Taught by JB our in house expert on all things comfort. Come in and find out how to spread the pain around equally to all extremities by making micro adjustments to handlebars, brake levers, saddles, and seat-posts.
Come on down November 18th at 4pm. for a basics of bike fitting class. All classes are free but please RSVP at email@example.com put your name and the class in the subject line if you are a nice person. Thanks!]]>
