Pedal is very excited to have signed up with our second bike company this week.  Guru crafts handmade, custom bicycles in Montreal, Canada.  If you’re looking for a very special triathlon/TT, road or cyclocross bike, come talk to us about Guru. For your ogling pleasure, we’ll have examples of Guru’s work in the shop soon, a carbon Photon and a titanium Praemio. Yum.

Guru speaks to the advantages of a custom bike here.

More than one person recently expressed an interest in classes or seminars or some ilk of training for the home mechanic or that person who’d just like to understand more about the way bicycles function. I don’t think there’s a better time for this sort of thing than right now, when we’re looking at snow and single-digit numbers on the thermometer.  This Saturday, February 12th, Abraham Lincoln’s birthday, at noon, we’ll take a look at derailleurs. So French! So complicated! So much fun! You need only bring your body and maybe a scrap of paper if you think something interesting might be said.  We’ll supply a bike with derailleurs, a work stand and a mechanic. And fun. Hope to see you there.

Monkeys on Typewriters

Each month we go to the zoo and hand out typewriters to monkeys. After a few days, we collect their thoughts and format them into an email newsletter suitable for framing or birdcage lining. Sound good? Enter your email below and check it out.

Note: we will never ever ever ever share your email. Ever. No monkey will contact you directly.
