Moving into Fall

The summer was fast and furious here at The Broken Spoke. We hope everyone had a safe and fun summer. But don't think that riding stops when the clouds appear. Fall and winter have some of the best riding conditions we could ever ask for.

You can try some of these great trail conditions at this fall's Trek Bike Demo. Mark your calendar for October 11th from 9-5 at Anderson Lake state park! Our Trek rep will have the demo trailer full of bicycles to test ride!! If you missed it last year, or can't decide what wheels you need for next year then this is the event for you. Road and Mountain demos will be available. Please note, you need a parking pass. The event is free otherwise.

Next on the agenda. If you may or may not know, Nicole and Pete are having another child. The baby is due in mid November.  If you absolutely love speaking with Pete when you come into the bike shop... bring in your bicycles now and throughout October. Pete will have a "here and there" type of schedule in November and into December.  Jacob and the rest of the crew will be running the day to day show. If you have a need during that time and only Pete will do please e-mail the shop and an appointment will be coordinated.

Finally when the colors of the trees change so do our shop hours. Starting October 1st we resume winter hours the only change to remember is we open 1 hour later Monday -Saturday.

Keeping you on your bike,
The Broken Spoke crew

P.S. Friendly reminder to always lock your bike(s)!! Numerous bikes have been reported to the bike shop as stolen recently and over the summer.  What a tragedy! Take a moment to prepare for this unforeseen disaster by taking a picture, writing down the serial number and a brief description of your bicycle. This will help when all you want to do is morn the loss of your beloved steed.
