We are heading into the home stretch of summer. The days are slowly getting shorter and kids are getting ready to back to school. I’m enjoying sunrises while sipping coffee before the house wakes up. This is my favorite time of year!
Some things to think about if you continue to ride through the winter:
Safety when riding!
Do you have lights, reflectors, and fenders? We can help you if you don’t!
Are you prepared for road hazards? Tubes? Tools? We have you covered!
Do you have proper riding attire? Let us outfit you from head to toe!
Have you tuned your bike after a good summer of riding?
Are you properly caffeinated? :) we have you covered there, too!
If you plan on shelving your bike for any length of time, you should think about having it cleaned, and looked over before you put it up. Even during our nicest weather, things can happen to your bike. It can get dirty in places you don’t want dirt and grime to sit in.
Our Seattle Scrubdown is perfect for you! The process includes our Safety Check (brake and derailleur adjustments, lubrication of drivetrain, full inspection, inflation of tires to proper levels and a test ride) plus: Removal of drivetrain components and full cleaning.
Also, when you choose to have your bike worked on prior to winter, you are beating the rush! Not much is worse than the sun coming out, and wanting to go for a ride and something not working right. Then you’re trying to find a shop, loading the bike into the car and making the trek to the shop only to find there is a 2-3 week wait for a service. Why not deal with everything now? Call or schedule us on line! We will come to you, wherever you are, and at your convenience. We will dial in your bike sometimes while you wait. We may occasionally need to order parts, and return the bike to you at a later date. Our typical turn-around time if additional parts are necessary is within 3 days: which is much better than 2-3 weeks.
Enjoy the last bits of this gorgeous summer! Enjoy your rides; whether they are to and from work, or to the store, or to the park with the kids. Remember we are here to help you out with all your bicycle and coffee needs at your convenience 7 days a week. www.shotsandsprockets.com OR 206.724.2994.
So here I am in Seattle working my dream. I have a mobile bicycle repair shop and a coffee trike that serves Cold Brew and Nitro Coffee.
