Bike Shop Build: Pinarello Dogma 65.1 Think2

0 Reality Bikes Pinarella Dogma

The thoughts and details during a bike build are what make a great bike shop a resource and a dream factory for bicycle geeks like myself. These custom bike builds are what keep me inspired and excited to continue to work within the industry. Few more bike profiles over yonder.

Reality Bikes Ridley Customer Appreciation Event

0 Reality Bikes Ridley Owner Appreciation Day

This past Sunday I drove down to the Atlanta metro for an event with Reality Bikes in Cumming, GA. The event was simply bringing together Ridley riding customers and new friends  for a ride, celebration of all things Belgium (food and beer) and looking at the new 2013 product.

While I am very biased since Ridley is a brand I represent this event was a very unique way for a shop to hold a non-salesy in store (and bike ride) while influencing customers. The event was well attended, the ride was casual but sporty and there was even a couple hundred feet of gravel road riding thrown in there for our “Pave tested” Ridleys.

Does your shop host any events like this? What was your experience when attending or organizing?

 

 

Motivational Monday: Ride with the Boys

Lately as I have been traveling I have been doing my best to ride with others. Normally I ride by myself as it is my away time but getting closer to cyclocross season I need to push myself and riding with others does that to you.

Riding with women is one thing, but I can tell you that hanging on to the wheels of some fast boys is very motivating. Especially when they are sweet boys that will wait for you when they drop you.

Thank you Reality Bikes for the rides last week, and I look forward to whatever wheel I can suck this week!
