Hello friends, We wanted to give an early warning that we will be closed this Saturday 12/19/2015 (as well as our regular winter Sunday closing) for the Afterglow cyclocross race in Douglas Park. Please consider racing with us and the Chicago Cutting Crew and raising some money for Blackstone Bicycle Works and West Town Bikes!
If you are someone who rides a bike, or know someone who rides a bike, you probably know that cross has been coming and is now here. You’ve probably been reminded every time you look at a bike blog or instagram post, so I will get to the point. Hopkins Park CX is the second race of the all powerful and wonderful ChiCrossCup and is Sunday, October 4th. Why am I mentioning this over the other amazing races that so many shops and teams work tirelessly to throw? Because our race team Comrade Cycles Racing is throwing it! With our friends at Axletree of course. Whether this is your first time racing or you’ve been with the Chicrosscup since the beginning you should come out. If you have any questions about registering, what to ride/wear/eat/or how to appropriately heckle just stop by the shop. Don’t know what cyclocross is? Just ask! (It’s can seem kinda strange.) As you may already know we are closed on Sundays throughout the cyclocross season so we can all be there to race (and we continue to stay closed till March because winter). So see you Sunday at the Race!
Wheel build special is on! We can help you drop some weight off your race bike, bomb-proofify the wheel set you work on, or set up a dynamo lighting wheel for your commuter. We’ve got the knowledge base and the experience to help you up your wheel game.
Buy your spokes, rim, and hub from us and get $60 off a single wheel build or $100 off a set. Call or stop by for pricing regarding rebuilding to existing parts. The special is on until March 1st.
The shop will be closed from Thursday, 11/27 through Sunday, 11/30. Bailey will be out racing the Gravel Grovel and the rest of the Comrades will be resting (or secretly riding the trainer). Hopefully you have a wonderful weekend and as always appreciate everything ya’ll have done for us. We are open regular winter hours Monday through Wednesday 11/26 this week.
We could wax poetic about embrocation and what pressure we’re running, but instead we’ll just say that with cyclocross comes shorter shop hours. We close on Sundays to allow us time to race in the Chicago Cyclocross Cup, and shorten the days by an hour to reflect the changing workload. Thanks for the support, now come out and heckle us at the races.
