How Should Bike Shops Be Using Social?
As you are probably aware, I am an active user and abuser of social media channels. By priority and preference I use Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and Pinterest to converse with fellow bike nerds and promote this website.
I have been doing my best to Like, Follow and curate all local bike shops on the various platforms. While it is encouraging to see more and more local bike shops harnessing the power of social media, it is disheartening to see the limited updates, the Tweets that are simply Facebook updates with the fb link and the lack of engaging, original, content.

I Live #LikeAGirl – How about you?
Many years ago I started this BikeShopGirl.com to empower women in cycling. Empower women to ride bikes, fix bikes and maybe even work in this glorious bike industry.

I live like a girl because I am a girl and I would never want to change that.

Review: Trek Lexa SLX Women’s Road Bike
3-4 years ago Trek launched a women’s aluminum road bike model line up called “Lexa“. Since, the Lexa has become a widely popular road bike in the US as Trek has offered many different model levels and a variety of colors to appeal to any woman. Additionally, the WSD fit of these bikes is a hit with women of many proportions. I’ve had the opportunity to test ride many Lexas and finally was able to snag an SLX model for a long term review to see how it really will last for women looking to invest in a new road bike.
