To all our teacher friends and customers! You all rock and I hope you enjoy a well deserved summer off.....
Summer break is here ❤️
Well....Ted says he can fit in the soap box derby car...let's hope he can stop it! Lot's of fun at the William Scott Festival in New Hamburg today!!!
I have debated whether to post this or not...but after the last few weeks, I feel we have no choice. Parents of young kids...please do not use our expertise to size your kids on bikes, only to go to big box stores and purchase your kid's bike. That isn't fair to us or to this community. We have invested money in stock, and real estate and our time in our shop, to serve the community. This was our dream. We don't even pay ourselves. It's okay if you want to go to Walmart or Canadian tire, but don't use us to size your kid on a bike, and don't argue with us when you bring us that "new" bike and we have to rebuild that bike because it wasn't assembled properly and you don't want to pay our labour charge because you think we should honour a warranty for a bike brand we don't carry. Thanks...had to get that off my chest. ... See more
I want to wish Ted, the love of my life, a Happy Father's Day. What makes me love him is his respect for all cyclists. We will be open tomorrow from 12-4 and hopefully no late day bike sales so he can spend some time with his wonderful children after we close at 4:00. But Ted is opening the shop early tomorrow, for one customer only, for someone that relies solely on his bike for transportation, and needs us to fix his bike before his week starts on Monday. So if you see Ted outside or bikes outside tomorrow...please let Ted work on this gentleman's bike...who really needs this help...and come and see us from 12-4...not before...and p.s....hard stop at 4:00 because he really wants to spend time with his kids and grandkids on Father's day...we arem't just retail...we are people with families and lives and we also like celebrating special occasions with our loved ones... Ted is my hero...he always looks after people in need...that's what makes our bike shop different from those in town...and we wouldn't have it any other way...Happy Father's Day! ... See more

Hi everyone! It's upon us...and has been for some time....busy repair season that is....So if we call you to tell you that your bike is ready for pick up...please come and get it? We are getting new bikes in daily that need repairs and if everyone takes a couple of weeks to pick up a completed repair bike, we will soon run out of room to store them...Thank you so much for your understanding. ...
